What Not To Buy At Airport Stores: Anything! PDF Print E-mail

If aware of prices outside the airport, you’ll soon realize everything inside costs twice as much or worse. Of course, the biggest rip-offs are souvenirs. Does your cousin really need a $25 cup with a picture of the Eiffel Tower on it? Or your grandson a $5 London Bridge t-shirt for $40?

Or a $5 candy bar that costs $1 at your corner grocery. Savings also apply to items related to flight, such as a $30 neck pillow you can buy at Sears for $10, and a $20 sleep mask you can get at CVS for $5. Think before taking long flights that’ll require you to bring home souvenirs and other purchases. Skip overpriced airport shops and buy them at regular stores.
