What if you are frankly unlucky with the choice of a gift for the New Year?
In the festive bustle, it is very important not to get confused and not to buy yourself, your family and friends, defective gifts, as well as fire-hazardous trees and expired sweets.
How to choose quality products,
Open your eyes
Based on complaints received by the consumer protection service, most often this year, citizens complain about low-quality jewelry, gadgets and sweet gift sets.
In order not to spoil the holiday for yourself, when buying, you need to carefully examine the selected gifts.
When choosing jewelry, remember that they must have not only a test, but also a «nameplate» — a stamp with the manufacturer’s data, the date of manufacture, as well as the data of the inspector who controls the quality of the goods.
Choosing appliances and gadgets as a gift, those who make purchases not via the Internet, but «with their own eyes» find themselves in a more advantageous position — in household appliances stores you can always ask to be shown how the selected product works.
If the product has an obvious manufacturing defect and you identified it at home, then you should feel free to write a request for a refund.
Of course, it is possible that the seller will try to avoid such a climax and offer you repairs at a service center. But it should be understood that then it will be possible to return the money spent only through the courts.
Those who purchased household appliances via the Internet and discovered a defect in the process of using them should immediately file an electronic claim in the name of the seller who posted the ad on the trading platform.
If the merchant does not respond, a complaint is made against the site, and then a claim is filed in court.
More on the topic:
It would seem, what’s the point of faking sweets? But even here you can «get burned».
Worst of all, children can suffer from poor-quality and expired products. Therefore, when buying sweet gifts, pay attention to the fact that the date of manufacture of sweets may differ from the date of packaging by only two to three days.
Another important nuance is the composition of the boxes. They should be free of products with nuts and prohibited dyes, as well as caramel.
When choosing «adult» gifts — alcohol — boldly look at the cost of the product: too low a price is pure counterfeit, from the use of which you can get huge health problems.
«Fir-trees rush around the city»
And what is a holiday without a tree?
Many now prefer artificial beauties, but in order not to celebrate the New Year in a company with the Emergencies Ministry’s brigade or not to burn down the house at all, you can only buy certified plastic trees.
For shopping it is better to go to hypermarkets and special stores.
Do not forget that quality spruce will never be too cheap. In addition, the tree should not have an unpleasant odor.
This rule also applies to garlands: they must also be certified and without the pungent smell of plastic.
What the holiday will be like, whether the chosen gifts will fail, depends only on you. Therefore, remember that it is not always possible to save on everything.
