Consumers

Gifts are nice, discounts are better

2020/11/19

Now that Election Week (Year?) is finally behind us, we have made it to the holidays! Tis the season to be merry, jolly, and survive the financial burden of pleasing all your friends and family members. When asked about their priorities for shopping during the holiday season, 32% of Americans ranked maximizing savings as their number one priority. Nothing quite like the gift of avoiding bankruptcy during a recession.

 

Savings are great, but so is maintaining one’s sanity, dignity, and limbs. To avoid the chaos in the midst of a deadly pandemic, 56% of Americans would prefer to shop on Cyber Monday instead of Black Friday if they had to choose between the two. Luckily, most of us do not need to make this tough decision with the average American splitting 38% of their total holiday shopping between these super saver days.

 

 

With the holidays nearing, you’ve completed your shopping list, checked it twice, and completely forgot about Uncle Bryce! Don’t worry, you’re not alone as most people finish the remaining 13% of their shopping during the week of Christmas.
