PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley is urging South Dakota residents to be careful when shopping this holiday season to avoid common mistakes.

He says the holiday shopping season begins earlier each year and this one is no exception with the lure of pre-black Friday deals and other specials.

Jackley says people should check refund and return policies for restrictions and exceptions. He says people buying gift cards should check for fees and expiration dates.

The attorney general says shoppers also should review warranties, compare prices and check shipping and handling fees for items ordered online.

Jackley also says people should be cautious of social media scams, including fake Twitter and Facebook pages. He recommends that people stick to the websites they are familiar with and do not click on unfamiliar links.
