As fun and entertaining as online shopping is, there are many things to consider in terms of safety. Websites that may look real could be scams, products that look great could be knockoffs, and stores you think are reliable could take advantage of your card information. Keep reading to find out how to stay safe online while you’re shopping.  Be Wary of Free Trials As you’ve heard before, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. These free subscriptions or trials are usually no good! Normally, these free trials expire and end up charging your card for the next month or rest of the year. While we suggest avoiding these types of offers, if you think the purchase is a must-have, we recommend using a prepaid card and use that for the purchase to avoid your real debit card from being charged again in the future.
