According to the Capital One Rewards Barometer, a quarterly survey among American consumers focused on how they accumulate and redeem credit card rewards, more than half of respondents (56 percent) plan to make a charitable donation this holiday season, yet 53 percent of rewards cardholders were unaware that credit card rewards can be gifted as a donation to a charity.“The holidays have always been the season for giving, but whether they’re generously donating their hard earned dollars or their equally hard earned miles, we know that consumers want to make sure that every cent counts,” said Pam Girardo, Capital One spokesperson. “There are costs associated with electronic payments and we are pleased to cover them in support of our customers and the non profit community.” About the Capital One Rewards Barometer Survey This BIGresearch® survey was conducted from November 4-7, 2011, among U.S. Adults 18+ who indicated that they currently have a "rewards credit card" - that is, a credit card with a rewards program that is issued by a bank or credit card company.
