Check How Items Are Packaged First
Check How Items Are Packaged First before you buy from an online retailer.

I found a children's dictionary that my daughter wanted me to get for her daughter for Christmas. I found it new at about half the price (including mailing) of one at a book store.

All other books I have bought this way were mailed in a box designed for this purpose. This one is heavy and came in a padded envelope. You guessed it. All four corners of the cover are crumpled. I'm surprised the spine isn't broken.

Ask how the items will be packaged before you buy this holiday season.
