If you are a savvy buyer "on-line" are you aware of ROBO shopping?

ROBO shopping stands for Research Offline, Buying Online! I'm sure many of us do it ignorant of the fact that there is now a word for it.

Many of us now visit High St stores with the sole intention of finding a particular product, checking the 'in-store price' and then buying it online for delivery to home or to the store in which you first saw it, to collect it.

Often you benefit from paying a better price, and for it being delivered at a time to suit you

Did you know that there is yet another benefit for ROBO shopping?

As disclosed by Martin Lewis in the Daily Telegraph this week "Buy goods online and you have a seven-day, no-fault refund right, even if you just change your mind." He goes on to say "In store, you are only due a refund on faulty goods, so buy the wrong size or colour and you have no rights (though some stores'returns policies allow it). Imagine buying a new sofa: look at it and pick it in store, and buy it from the web. That way, if it arrives and doesn't fit through the door, you can send it back."
