'Tis the season for online shopping. If you’re looking for gifts that will be easy to pay off, you’re most likely going to turn to Amazon (or even Costco) to do your shopping. But what about the supply chain issues and shipping delays. Will they delay your experience? Will they affect your Amazon purchases?

In 2020, the pandemic and ensuing surge at the end of that year led to delays, port traffic jams, and shipping blockages. A continuing shortage of dockworkers and truckers resulted in shipping container jams in ports, compounding the problem.

What does this mean for you? It means starting your holiday shopping early — you should get your items on time as long as you jump on your shopping list items right away. And don't forget to tap into the best rewards credit cards before you shop.
