Families with children often feel a financial strain as going to the grocery store, purchasing school supplies and clothes, insurance premiums and even vacations are all more expensive.
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
PromotionalCodes.com today released results from a survey, conducted online in May by Harris Interactive among 2,085 U.S. adults, that suggests that households with more people present are more likely to use online promotional codes. 39% of online shoppers who live in households with five or more people use promotional codes when shopping online always/often, as compared to 31% of those with three to four members, 26% of those who live alone and 27% of those with two members in their household.
In the second round of results distributed in a three part series leading up to National Coupon Month, the survey data also indicates that those who shop online and have any children under age 18 present (37%) are more likely than those without children in the household (26%) to use online coupons “always/often”. Likewise, female online shoppers are more likely than males who shop online to use promotional codes at least sometimes when shopping online.
“Families with children often feel a financial strain as going to the grocery store, purchasing school supplies and clothes, insurance premiums and even vacations are all more expensive,” said PromotionalCodes.com consumer savings expert Regina Novickis. “It’s no surprise that these families are seeking out ways to save the most money when buying essentials.”
More results indicating that females and families are the savviest online shoppers include:
More People in the Household, More Savings
- 74% of online shoppers with children in their household at least sometimes use promotional codes when shopping online, as compared to 67% of those without children present
