Christmas is behind us and as usual, we bought lots and lots of gifts for our friends and family. But not everyone is doing their Christmas shopping the same way and at the same time of the year. Some of us start as soon as the holiday is done, and others wait until the 11th hour (like me).
The three types of shoppers
It seems that there are 3 types of Christmas shoppers. Personally, I fall into the last one, The Last-Minute Shopper. I’m not very fond of Christmas shopping, so I wait until the last week, sometimes the last day, to buy gifts. Like 26% of this category, I admit to procrastinating.
In the 1st category, The Early Bird, 41% of those shoppers buy their Christmas gifts early to avoid last minute stress and in the 2nd one The Deal Seeker, 95% shop on Black Friday to get the best prices.
The TurboTax Blog team has come up with this cool infographic that classifies holiday shoppers in 3 categories. According to the infographic, whether you shop all year long, wait until the last moment or seek the best bargains reveals a lot about who you are, what you buy, and how much money you spend.
In this infographic, you’ll also find 3 useful holiday tips to help you avoid tax headaches. So if you’re curious to learn more about your holiday shopper type, check out below.
