Tip 70: Don’t Forget to Ask Ahead of Time…

There are 70 days until Black Friday 2011 and we’re counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today’s Tip:

Ask for your Gift Receipts ahead of time!

Many great cashiers will ask you ahead of time if you need gift receipts for the items you’re buying, but just as many of them don’t ask.

I always end up remembering at the end of the sale when they hand me a receipt and then it’s too late. I have to spend more time, standing in line at customer service to have my gift receipts printed.

Today’s tip is to remind you to ask for a gift receipt before they start to ring up your items. And don’t forget to tape them to the gifts or to the clothing tags as soon as you get home and put your gifts in the gift closet we created last week. If you’re lucky many stores will put a sticker on the tag for you with all the gift receipt information in it.
