When shopping online, make sure that you get an online receipt of your purchase. Some websites will e-mail you a receipt, while others will tell you at the end of the order to print this page for your records, other websites won't tell you anything. So if you're not sure if the site will remind you to print a page or that you'll get an e-mail receipt, it would be wise to print the screen that shows your ordering information. Retailers can make mistakes offline and online, so it's better to be safe than sorry, and have a receipt.
