Tips for shopping the outlets

Visiting an outlet mall can be a lot of fun, and you can score some good deals, but Money Expert Nathan Bachrach says not everything is the bargain it appears to be.

Manufacturers sometimes send lower-quality merchandise to outlet malls. That may mean a flimsier piece of clothing or handbag.  

So before you go on an outlet shopping spree, Bachrach says you should make a list of what you're looking for, then visit a department store to check out the products.

Look at seams, zippers and pockets. Then, when you're at the outlet, make sure the quality of the products is just as good.
