The two biggest shopping days of the year are coming up. Continue reading for tips to save extra money and protect yourself as you shop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
Make a list (and check it twice.) One of the worst things you can do is make purchases without a shopping list. This is true for both online and in-store shopping! By creating a list of specific items you want or need, you’ll avoid falling into the trap of buying unnecessary things.
Take advantage of your rewards program. You earn one point for each $1 you charge on your SeaComm Visa, with the ScoreCard Rewards Program. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the perfect occasions to rack up your points, and use them to purchase airline and travel services, quality merchandise, or even for cash back!

Start your shopping early. Black Friday is no longer a one-day event. The earlier you start your shopping, the better your chances of finding the items you want on sale…and in stock! If you’re not prepared to wait in lengthy lines, you should consider reserving all of your shopping for Cyber Monday – when you can cross items off your list from the comfort of your smartphone or computer!
