Ohio's AG Offers Tips For Holiday Shoppers
As some shoppers begin to prepare for Black Friday, Ohio's Attorney General is offering tips for shoppers to keep in mind..especially for the holidays. From our Statehouse Bureau Jo Ingles has more.
Attorney General Mike DeWine says shoppers need to ask questions and document purchases carefully this holiday season.
“Check the exclusions and limitations of an offer. Find out if a rain check applies. In other words, if they are advertising a certain item at a certain price, sometimes you look down there and find they only have a certain number of them. Return policy – some stores have a no return policy, particularly if something is on a sale. Read the fine print and if you don’t understand, ask the clerk.”
DeWine says Ohioans should also keep receipts for their purchases and monitor their bank accounts to make sure no unauthorized purchases are being charged.
