Stretching Holiday DollarsWhile consumers are eager to save, they are not taking full advantage of all of the opportunities to stretch their budget this holiday season. To manage holiday expenses, only one in five are comparing prices online and only 16 percent shopped early to get better deals. Social media listening, a key way to learn about good deals, is only currently being used by 8 percent of Americans. Credit cards with a price-back guarantee are only being used by 6 percent of consumers and only 5 percent are using their credit card reward points to purchase gifts.
