When going out to play, pay attention to make an appointment in advance, and make full preparations to improve the travel experience
It is understood that in order to effectively implement the epidemic prevention and control policies, many scenic spots have introduced an appointment system to implement current limiting measures. To avoid affecting the play experience, consumers are advised to check the scenic spot’s official website or phone in advance to learn about the relevant regulations of the scenic spot, and follow the requirements. Make an appointment, make full preparations, and travel in a civilized manner.
Consumers should give top priority to service capabilities, service quality, and product quality when registering for tourism and group purchases of various tourism consumer products. They should choose merchants with complete qualifications, high reputation and good reputation, and do not use price as the only choice for consumption. The basis is to be wary of “free travel for members”, “0 yuan tour group”, “super low price and free stay” and other behaviors that are significantly lower than reasonable prices to prevent falling into the trap of black-hearted merchants. When signing a travel service contract with a business, you must carefully read the terms of the contract, especially the standards related to food, accommodation, and transportation, as well as the rights and obligations of both parties, and liabilities for breach of contract.
When buying moon cakes and hairy crabs, you must prevent pits and lightning, and dinners should be economical and not wasteful
“Double Festival” is not only a wonderful time to enjoy mooncakes, but also the best time to taste hairy crabs. When buying moon cakes, consumers should try their best to buy through formal channels, carefully check the main ingredients, production date and shelf life of the moon cakes, and check whether there is an SC mark; for moon cakes made in bulk or on-site, pay attention to the color and luster of the moon cakes. Shape, smell, etc., and carefully check the sanitary condition of the site. Take a rational view of the concepts of “discount”, “promotion”, “health care”, and “sugar-free”, and buy on demand to avoid waste. Due to the high proportion of sugar and fat in moon cakes, consumers are advised to consume them in moderation. Special groups with diabetes, “three highs”, liver and gallbladders, and weak gastrointestinal functions should be more reasonable in their consumption. When buying hairy crabs, consumers should pay special attention to guarding against “crab coupons” routines. Many consumers reported that after purchasing “crab coupons”, they were faced with the imbalance of supply and demand of “a coupon in hand, crabs are hard to find”, or the crabs they received have shrunk seriously and are short of catastrophe. Therefore, it is recommended that consumers keep their eyes open and try to choose regular offline brick-and-mortar merchants or reputable e-commerce companies to buy hairy crabs.
The China Consumers Association reminds consumers to “practice economy and oppose waste” during the “double festival” dinner. While paying attention to food safety, it consciously resists waste on the tip of the tongue and actively implements the “CD Action”.
Take a rational view of merchants’ “double festival” discounts and promotions, and do not blindly consume reasonable consumption
During the “Double Festival” period, consumers should rationally view the sales promotion methods of the merchants, and should not be dazzled by the promotion of “explosive models” and “special prices”, and should not be deceived by the exquisite packaging pictures displayed on the Internet, and carefully choose “Internet celebrity” live broadcasts. All kinds of products sold with the goods, so as not to regret the impulse consumption of the moment. It is recommended that consumers make purchase decisions when they have a clear consumer demand and a full understanding of the true quality of the product.
The China Consumers Association reminds consumers to keep their invoices, receipts and other consumption vouchers during the consumption process. Those who shop through e-commerce platforms or “live delivery” should also pay attention to keeping key information such as chat records and transaction records. When the legitimate rights and interests are infringed, they can first negotiate with the merchants to resolve them, express reasonable demands, protect rights in accordance with the law, and file a complaint to the relevant administrative department or consumer association organization when necessary.

Look for the “blue hat” when buying health food, and beware of falling into the trap of cheating the old
Since the Double Ninth Festival follows the “Double Festival” holiday, some consumers may buy health foods as gifts for their elders, and some elderly consumers may buy health foods for themselves. But at present, there are many ordinary foods on the market that look very similar to health food packaging. If you don’t distinguish them carefully, it is easy to buy “Li Gui”. When consumers buy health food, they must look for the “blue hat” (exclusive health food logo) and check whether there is a health food approval number under the logo that can be queried online. Stay away from fake products that do not have a “blue hat”, no health food approval number, or that cannot be queried through the Internet.
In addition to health food, financial management, telecommunications fraud, and low-cost travel are also consumption issues that elderly consumers are prone to be deceived. It is recommended that elderly consumers learn more about consumption knowledge on the one hand, and improve their awareness and ability to prevent fraud; on the other hand, they should communicate more with their children before making purchase decisions, especially when large amounts of consumption are involved. Children’s opinions and suggestions.
