- Decoy pricing - Watch out for decoy pricing by retailers. They often time send you emails or texts to entice you to get into the store with decoy prices on some of its products. If those emails don’t have something that’s a “must-have” on your list then don’t fall for it.

As for Cyber Monday, if you check your sale sites for other items you also need you can save money on shipping costs by buying more than one item at a time.
