Use cash. Consider using a debit card or cash for in-store purchases. Carrying only a predetermined amount of money in your wallet may help you avoid overspending.

Pay attention to the fine print. Retailers may have special policies in place for the holiday season. Knowing the time limits for exchanges or returns is especially important when you’re shopping early. Ask for gift receipts and keep your own copies.

Watch out for exclusions. Promotional prices might be limited to certain items and may expire quickly, so understand the details.

Look for price guarantees. If you buy an item that later goes on sale, some retailers will refund the difference within certain time limits. Retailers may also match a competitor’s price on an identical item (you may need to provide proof of the purchase).
