Shopping online is fun, easy, and thus, kinda addictive. Being one click away from the miscellaneous sea of goodies is surely a pleasant feeling, but look, we’re not kids anymore.

How many times have you told yourself to read the descriptions, to never underestimate the inkling of doubt if the items look too good to be true, and think before adding something to the basket? Because let’s be honest, that cool prom dress for $5 made you look like a herring under a fur coat and thank god, you got rid of that cursed pic ‘cause you wouldn’t make it through seeing it again.

But who wouldn’t like to learn from the mistakes of others? Bored Panda has compiled a list of hilarious online bargain fails, proving that sometimes we’re all better off in the mall. With loud music and way too bright lights that sizzle your eyes, we at least know what we sign up for. If this post wasn’t enough of a reality check, check out our previous posts on people who deeply regret their online purchases here, here, and here.

We’ve all been there. Okay, I have. I promised myself not to step on the same rake twice but boy, those online deals just got me big time. But it doesn’t mean feeling disappointed after opening up your freshly delivered package is fine. And there are things to be done about it.

First, whatever you buy, always check the return policy on every website. Be sure you will be able to return the item if you’re not happy with it and unfortunately, not all online shops allow it.

The other tip is simply to buy from trustable websites. Make sure it has previous reviews, a nice customer service team, and contact numbers to talk to in case something goes against the plan.

I don't even understand how something was in the system for that long...did the retailer forget to send the item? Because a parcel being in UPS's system for a few months would just get returned to the sender...even if it was lost, surely they must sort through lost/missing parcels every year at some point. I don't even understand how a parcel missing for a decade could even happen...

I truly do not get people who get scammed by these dress sellers. If they're selling something that looks like it would ordinarily cost thousands of dollars for a few hundred dollars (or often even less), odds are you're not getting the product you think you are, because they likely stole the photo.
