Black Friday is coming with tempting offers. Research prices, read terms, save receipts. Know your rights, avoid misleading offers, protect your data and act fast.

Black Friday is fast approaching, and with it comes tempting offers and attractive discounts on a wide range of products. However, in the midst of the shopping excitement, it is crucial that consumers are informed and protected. As a law firm specializing in consumer rights, we would like to offer some legal advice to ensure that your purchases are safe and satisfactory:

1. Do your research before you shop

Before making a purchase during Black Friday, do your research and compare prices at different stores. Make sure the advertised discounts are genuine and not artificially inflated to give the impression of a great deal.

2. Read the terms and conditions

When shopping online or in physical stores, read the terms and conditions carefully, especially regarding return policies, warranties and shipping costs. Understanding these aspects is essential to avoid unpleasant surprises after the purchase.

3. Keep receipts and proofs of purchase

Keep all receipts, invoices and proofs of purchase. These documents are essential in case there is a problem with the product or you need to enforce a warranty.

4. Know your rights as a consumer

Familiarize yourself with your rights as a consumer under local laws. This includes the right to receive a quality product, the right to return defective products and the right to cancel online purchases within a specified period.

5. Beware of misleading offers

Be on the lookout for misleading or fraudulent business practices. Some stores may advertise false discounts or employ aggressive sales tactics. Report any suspicious activity to the appropriate authorities.

6. Protect your personal information

When shopping online, make sure the website is secure and trustworthy. Avoid providing sensitive information if you are unsure of the site’s legitimacy.

7. Act promptly in case of problems

If you experience a problem with a purchase during Black Friday, act quickly. Contact the seller or supplier and follow established procedures to resolve the situation.

Remember that, as a consumer, you have rights that deserve to be respected. These tips are intended to help you make informed purchases and protect your interests during Black Friday. In case you face legal difficulties or doubts, do not hesitate to seek appropriate legal advice.
