So, every time you shop online, check the web address. If it starts with ‘https,’ you’re good to go, if not, you should avoid purchasing anything from that website.

While ‘https’ and ‘http’ are actually both responsible for normal browsing functions to happen the ‘http’ data is not encrypted, meaning that the online shop is not secure.

P.S.: You should also check that the company is reputable.

  1. These suggestions are good if a consumer has a habit of keeping balance. I pay for the balance every month so I cannot give up use of credit card because it is automatically 2% back as travel money. I charge HOA fees; $14.95 fee is less than 2%, rebate if I pay at least quarterly. Some utilities will encourage credit cards, then I pay from my checking accounts.
    A also try to keep 6 months’ living expenses in my cash account, too. Amazon’c 5% back is also beneficial, so is Costco’s citi cards. I have to make sure the balance is within my means It is all about managing the money.
