Get Ready For Soccer Season

When you’re getting ready for next year’s soccer season, there are two things that are important.  Number one – get fit, so you will puke less during pre-season training, and number two – get some kit.

Shopping for Your Soccer Kit Online – Beware

How many times have you found an incredible deal online and just went ahead and purchased? More than likely you made a good purchase and all of your information was kept safe and secure.

However, there are countless shoppers who get their identity stolen by using the wrong shopping sites. While saving a dollar is always a wise investment, shopping online could cost you your identity. With that in mind, we wanted to offer you several online shopping tips to stay safe.

One of the first things you will want to do is find a few sites that you enjoy and you can trust. For most online shoppers, these types of sites include Amazon, eBay, even major retailer websites like Sports Shoes Online.

And speak to your coach as sometimes when a new sponsor comes onboard they do deals with local retailers.

It is much better to begin your search on one of these sites for a particular product than looking at unknown sites. While it is fine to get information and reviews from these types of sites, you may not want to fully trust them with your credit card and other personal details.

After you have made an online purchase, it is always wise to continue to monitor your credit card for unauthorised charges. This is a trick that many unscrupulous online retailers will use. In fact, you just may end up with an unknown charge several months after your initial purchase. If you find a charge on your statement that you do not recognise, it is best to contact your credit card company as soon as possible.

Finally, if you do plan on spending some time shopping online it is always best to ensure that your computer is as protected as possible. This includes ensuring that antivirus and malware defence programs are installed and all up to date. This will help you from picking up anything other than great deals!
