Holiday Shopping Interview with WSYR Radio Syracuse
CreditCards.com Senior Industry Analyst Matt Schulz spoke on Friday, September 18, 2015 with Jim Donovan of WSYR Radio Syracuse about the September 2015 Holiday Shopping survey. The interview and transcript are below.
Jim Donovan: How many Central New Yorkers have Christmas shopping on their minds? More than you might think, according to Matt Schulz with CreditCards.com. Schulz says around 35 million Americans have already started shopping – with a few of us even further along than that.
Matt Schulz: We also found that 2% of all consumers, or about five million people, said that they had already finished their holiday shopping, which is kind of amazing to me.
Donovan: Schulz says many people with limited incomes begin to shop early in order to find special deals.
