If you blindly shop online thinking it’s cheaper, think again. Online shopping may be more convenient, but it’s definitely getting more expensive. Adobe says those prices have increased by three-and-a-half percent over last year.
Adobe began looking at online prices back in 2014 and the jump is the biggest year-over-year spike it’s seen. Apparel prices are particularly high. They’re up 17-point-three percent.
There is good news. Toys, computers and sporting goods are still cheaper online.
So the lesson is this, compare before you buy.
