McLEAN, Va. (9/22/15)--The kids are just back to school, but some people already are doing their holiday shopping. About one in seven American adults--32 million--already are crossing items off of their gift lists, according to a survey by CreditCards.com conducted over Labor Day weekend (USAToday Sept. 15).
Parents are twice as likely as those without kids to have already started shopping. With the flexibility of online shopping and special retail promotions, it’s no surprise that people have started early.
About one in four holiday shoppers hope to have their shopping complete by the end of November.
