With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, do Americans plan to spend more money this holiday season? Half of adults who spend money on holiday shopping — 50% — say they will shell out the same amount they did last year, but more than four in ten — 42% — think they will spend less money, and only 7% expect to spend more.
Last year, similar proportions of adults who spend money on holiday shopping had these views. At that time, 51% thought they would spend the same amount as they had the previous holiday season. Four in ten — 40% — said they would spend less, and 9% reported they would pay more.
