As you know, back to school is always a stressful time and the shopping experience can sometimes almost mirror those dreaded Holiday season line-ups. What’s interesting is that VISA Canada has done a fascinating study on back to school spending and found that many shoppers are choosing to shop at online stores.
According to their survey,over 93% of back to school shoppers are looking for sales and special offers online and with Canadians spending an average of $240 online for back to school – anything you can do to stretch those dollars helps.
Back-to-school shoppers cited two main reasons why they dislike in-store purchasing –crowds and expense (58% combined).I agree. I much prefer online shopping.
Visa would love to offer one of my CANADIAN readers a $50 prepaid VISA gift card! The gift cards can be used at any retail outlet that accepts VISA payments- even on VISA’s deal website visaperks.ca to get discounts on a super helpful stuff like new shoes from SoftMoc, some fall fresh fashions from Gap Kids and school supplies from Scholar’s Choice.
A random draw will be made on September 6, 2011 by Random.org from all Canadian entries recieved.
