Online Prices Are Going Up

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.
