From Consumer Reports smart shopper magazine, Shop Smart, here are their five biggest money wasters:
Don’t fall for fake sales…the posted price isn’t always the best deal out there.
Don’t pay for electronic buyback programs…the payouts aren’t worth it.
Don’t use air miles for nontravel rewards…use them for flights only!
Don’t buy a new smaller car to save on gas…get a fuel-efficient one.
Don’t overbuy daily deals…many Groupons and the like never get used.
