New Ypulse Report: Holiday Shopping & Winter Fun

The Ypulse Report — Holiday Shopping & Winter FunDuring the 2011 holiday season, retailers rejoiced as customers flocked to stores, spending record amounts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Students happily did their part in boosting the economy — they went into the holiday season planning to spend more than they did the prior year. Online shopping saw a particular increase. Students not only shopped more online than they have in the past, but they also planned to spend more online. A key takeaway from this report is that technology is becoming ingrained in students’ shopping habits. They also turned to social media to find deals and to get gift ideas. Many used their mobile phones to shop. Not only did the number that researched store locations and product details increase, but the number of students who made purchases on their phones nearly doubled.

The holiday season is also about family. Collegians are especially happy to have time to spend with their parents and siblings — shopping outings, cooking and baking, and even hanging holiday decorations are all excuses to make the most of family time before they head back to school. Cost: $2,000.
