BlackFriday.com and SurveyGizmo surveyed 1,000 American consumers who planned to shop between September and Cyber Monday about their holiday shopping plans.
Here are the results:
- More plan to shop on Cyber Monday (30%) than on Black Friday (24%) this year,
- 18% will shop on Small Business Saturday,
- 15% will spend on Thanksgiving week, and
- 13% plan to shop pre-Black Friday, from September to mid-November.
Some addition insights from the survey:
- Holiday season 2020 will see a curbside pickup surge: Half of consumers say they’ll use it more this year than last year.
- One in three shoppers will start their holiday shopping earlier this year.
- Most consumers aren’t concerned about shipping delays (but with Trump screwing with the postal service, perhaps they should be).
- Most (84%) of the shoppers surveyed said that COVID-19 will directly impact at least one aspect of their holiday shopping behavior.
