From Friday, November 17 to Monday, November 20, el Buen Fin 2023 will take place, where several businesses in Yucatán will be part of these promotions.
Thousands of suppliers will participate in the Buen Fin, offering specials and promotions for the acquisition of goods, products, or services that seem difficult to resist, but that you should analyze.
For this reason, the Federal Consumer Prosecutor’s Office (Profeco) has issued a series of recommendations to avoid falling into scams in Buen Fin 2023.
Recommendations for “El Buen Fin”
Think before you buy: Consider if you need the item. If you purchase something, make sure it does not affect your finances in the short and long term.
Make a list of needs: Acquire durable or truly essential consumer goods. Avoid unnecessary expenses.
Buy in an informed manner: Review the information of the good or service you want to purchase so that you are well aware of what it consists of.
Compare prices: They may be different in stores or online. Consult the Who’s Who in Prices (QQP) of the Federal Consumer Protection Agency (Profeco) or Internet portals.
Check out offers and promotions: Whether they are months without interest, bonuses on payments with cash or with some bank cards, check them.
Check the availability of the product: It is the supplier’s obligation to indicate that the goods are not available when their stock runs out.
Review delivery deadlines, conditions and costs: It is important that you know that the supplier is obliged to comply with them.
Consult terms and conditions of the guarantees: Any good or service that is offered with a guarantee must be subject to the provisions of the Federal Consumer Protection Law (LFPC) and the agreement between you and the supplier.
Check the exchange or return policies: Remember that they must be current to be valid.
Save payment receipts: They will be useful in case of clarifications. Request them in each transaction.
