Dec. 14, 2012 - RetailMeNot.com, the largest online coupon site in the United States, today released another holiday edition of its Shoppers Trend Report (STR), revealing findings from a poll conducted by The Omnibus Company on how much holiday gift shopping consumers have completed so far and factors that influence their purchasing decisions. Conducted between December 3rd and December 10th, 2012 among 1,106 U.S. residents, the survey indicates that 55% of holiday shoppers still have half of their gift purchases to make, 14% of holiday shoppers have yet to complete any of their shopping and males are more likely than females to have not started shopping (17% versus 11%).
"Consumers can still make those big purchases both online and in-store for everything from apparel to consumer electronics to sporting goods, but be prepared to see product inventories start to thin out the closer we get to Christmas," said Trae Bodge, senior editor for The RetailMeNot Insider. "Consumers also need to make sure they pay attention to merchants' shipping policies as time is running out on the many free shipping deals that guarantee on-time delivery of gifts."
