Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday..all excellent gift-buying opportunities. The Better Business Bureau has some advice.

Media specialist with the Better Business Bureau in Spokane, Washington, Chelsea Dannen says to be careful, and do as much prep work as possible before you head out to the sales.

Dannen says first, don't fall for the Too-Good-To-Be-True deal...second, watch our for scams..and third...when shopping on-line for Cyber Monday, only shop at sites you know and trust, and make sure your computer is fully protected with good security software.
