Welcome to this week’s edition of Your Moment of Trust! Advent calendars have
become a fixture of the holiday season. Once a religious tradition for children, these
calendars are now big business. They are targeted at all ages and contain anything
from luxury beauty products to Lego sets to a variety of wines. With so many options,
some costing hundreds of dollars, what should you know before purchasing one? BBB
recommends the following.
What to know before buying an advent calendar
● Shop early. Due to their growing popularity, the best advent calendars tend to sell
out early. If an advent calendar is on your list, especially if you want one with a
coveted brand or product, make your purchase early.
● Compare calendars. Bundled products, such as advent calendars, are hard to
compare across retailers. However, do some comparison shopping first to make
sure you are getting a good deal on the type of calendar you want (for example,
chocolate or toys). Consider what’s inside each calendar to determine which
company offers the best deal.
● Don’t expect a bargain. If you already buy something frequently, such as coffee
or cosmetics, an advent calendar can be a fun, festive way to sample new flavors
or products from a favorite store. However, retailers love advent calendars
because they have high-profit margins, so don’t expect a good deal.
● Buy from a reputable company, especially if you want to buy an advent calendar
online. Make sure the online store has a reputation for good customer service,
quality goods, and reliable shipping and handling. If customer reviews reveal that
a company is struggling in any of these areas, make your purchase elsewhere.
● Be wary of misleading ads. Scam e-commerce websites often promote advent
calendars through enticing social media ads. Just because something looks good
in the photo doesn’t mean it’s real. The same goes for glowing customer reviews.
Always research a company before you do business with them to avoid falling
victim to a scam.
● Count the cost. Watch out for overpriced advent calendars. In recent years, some
consumers have called out luxury brands on social media for not delivering
adequate gifts in expensive calendars. Before you purchase one, find out what it
contains. Consider whether the gifts are miniature or full-size and what each
product might be worth individually. Then, decide if the calendar is worth its
overall asking price.
● Watch out for scams. BBB gets dozens of reports each year about advent
calendar scams in BBB Scam Tracker. Deals that seem too good to be true are
often a telltale sign of a scam. Be very wary of products that sell for significantly
more money elsewhere or are sold out on well-known sites. Read more about
