San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2012

TechBargains.com, a deal aggregation website for electronic products, released its Back-to-School survey results revealing that nine out of ten people plan to shop online and 95% expect to use coupon codes this year for back-to-school purchases. The survey conducted on TechBargains.com canvassed the views of nearly 1,400 respondents and found that 36% of people anticipate spending more this year than last with the majority (57%) saying it’s based on schools requiring more, not because they have a larger budget or want to purchase more back-to-school items.

“In our study parents and students told us they are forced to spend more money on basic supplies and technology this year to keep up with school demands,” said Yung Trang, president and editor-in-chief of TechBargains.com. “In order to keep cash in their wallets and save valuable time, consumers are turning to online shopping with coupon codes for extra savings.”

Money, money, money
The survey results indicate that 3 out of 4 people plan to spend less than $500 on back-to-school shopping, 23% expect to spend $100-$199 and 18% plan to spend less than $100. Additionally, the majority (60%) of people said they plan to begin back-to-school shopping in August followed by 27% of people who began in July.
