More and more retailers are using add-ons to make you pay attention to their sales. You’ve probably noticed a little popup in your browser asking if you’d like to install their super-special ad on so that you ‘don’t miss a thing’, right?
These work in much the same way as ads, so you should be just as wary of them. You can typically deny these requests, but from time to time some slip through the cracks. Stay vigilant when you shop online and you should be safe!
If you take a moment to really analyze what you’re about to click or agree to, you should be in the clear. Sometimes, all that stands between you and an impulse buy is a deep breath!
