The sales are here! Literally everything is on sale or about to be with EOFY looming, and with so many avenues to shop at our disposal, even us seasoned shopaholics are finding it a little overwhelming. A recent study by AMR for American Express found that 57 percent of Australians rate in-store offers and deals as their top motivation to spend — are you even the tiniest bit surprised?

The downside of shopping around for the best price is that it can sometimes lead us to dodgy sites. Ever typed in your credit card deets while simultaneously hoping the site is actually legit? (I'll silently raise my hand). Between 2008 and 2013, card-not-present fraud (meaning someone using your card details, not your physical card) in Australia jumped from making up 48 percent of total credit card fraud to 72 percent — that's $219.7 million. Yikes! So in the spirit of getting a discount, here's five new smart shopper tips to help you safely get a bargain.
