The Best Shopping Sites for Men!

Most Blogs tend to write posts targeted for Women ( especially those related to Fashion) This Blog is not one of them :-) We are here to give tips to both Male and Female . With that being said , today we’ll look at the Best Shopping sites for men . These Sites will be broken down into specific areas such as : Clothing , Tools , Electronics , Games and Car Accessories . All the great things that all you guys love.

indexClothing

Dr Jay’s: The Online store became popular in the early 00′ and features popular Urban Brands of Clothing such as : Adidas , Coogi , Nike RocaWear and all the Snap backs and Polo Shirts you could ever imagine . The “average” male is not one to sit for hours browsing through pages and pages of outfits so not to worry guys , the website is user friendly and you are able to see everything you want without even clicking on items. The website loads really fast and you are able to see each item by simply hovering over it.

Games and Electronics

Best Buy … Hands Down!  I decided to group these two together because i feel they go hand in hand . Best Buy  is the “techies” dream. They have the latest Games and Electronics in all the popular brands and they re-stock their site frequently . Also , as soon as a newer version of a gaming system comes out , they have a major sale where things are sooo cheap it is as if they are giving them away . If you are just getting into games , Best Buy is great for you because they have their ” Geek Squad”  whose mantra is ” Taking care of your Technology needs , so that you don’t have to “. They are more than qualified to give you tips on what to buy and how to use your new gadgets and all that good stuff. Best Buy also accepts International Credit Cards so you are able to check in and out as often as you wish . The only thing between you and some of your favorite games and electronics is a Click.

If you fall into the “skilled laborer” category , then Walmart is your best bet to get all your high quality tools at an affordable cost . Tools can be really expensive if you want the ones that will last your for a lifetime . They have brands such as Everstart , Schmacher and Motor Trend (only to name a few) . For whatever brand you choose , be sure to get a warranty , some are free and some you have to purchase.  I find that the brands that are considered “High End” will have a shorter warranty , while the brands that are not as high end will have a longer warranty. It is important that you read all the fine print and see when the warranty expires and what to do if your product is faulty.

Car Accessories

Rims , Seat Covers , Stereos  you can find them all at Amazon! How could i not include the World’s most popular E-commerce site . The possibilities are endless and you are able to find all you need in just a jiffy . Guys love it because of the variety and of course how easy it is to use.

There are tons of Online websites that I’ve not listed here for Guys . The ones listed in this post are the ones that most guys like the best ( when asked) and they are also the ones that comes up in most top searches

  • Only shop at sites you can trust – This might sound like a no brainer, but these days one can never be too careful. The first thing you can do is search for that website on Google or your favorite search engine and see if all the contact info correlates. Also see if you can find some reviews to see what people have said about that specific website. In essence, use Common Sense. Make sure you are able to see some form of Contact info, try calling or sending them an e-mail… see if they answer you.
  • Never Shop from a Public Computer: This is one of the first things you see when you check your account Online. Public Computers are less secure than private computers and will put you at a greater risk for Identify Theft. Most public computers will have a special software that is able to mimic your keystrokes and save all your information the way you input them word for word.
  • Make sure the Credit Card Entry Page is Secure – This is usually indicated by a small padlock at the top right of your page. A secure network usually begins with “https://” then the name of the website.
  • Make sure your computer has Anti – Virus Software – There are tons of malicious Viruses that can attach to your computer that can be detrimental. The worst one of all is Spyware and it does exactly what it sounds like. Have you ever noticed those videos that seem to pop up out of nowhere and attach to your wall on Facebook? Also, if you go on a particular website and it looks like a threat to you, your computer will automatically block you from entering that website as long as you have installed an Anti- Virus Software.
  • Use Paypal! Paypal is the worlds’ safest way to make transaction online. Once you sign up for an account, you are able to pay for items all over the world. Most websites now accept payments via Paypal. You can find this at the bottom of the webpage which will show the “Paypal” Logo.  Also, if you’ve successful signed up for Paypal, the company gives you $15 to spend on Ebay.* Signing Up is FREE*

Here is an extra tip for you: Use a Credit Card rather than a Debit Card. This is another no-brainer tip. Visa for example has a zero Liability Policy. This gives users 100% protection against Card Theft or Loss. If fraudulent activity has been reported you are not charged for these . Shopping Online can be rewarding and convenient. It is advised that you however “ Shop Wisely” and pay close attention to the sites/ merchants you make purchases to.
