1. Buy within your budge.

2. Avoid getting into debt or use your credit card as a financing tool to buy mother a gift.

3. If you have to finance, analyze the various options and read the fine print.

4. Shop around. Walk the streets and the malls to find the best price and deal.

5. Keep the receipt in the event the item has to be exchanged or returned or needs service under warranty. In Costa Rica all retail sales come with a “30 working day” guarantee, but you will need the receipt as proof of purchase.
