While 72% of U.S. consumers plan on controlling holiday shopping, more than 7 in 10 affluent shoppers plan on spending more than $500 on gifts this year. And Mobile is going to play a big part.
- Over half of affluent shoppers plan on using smart phones and tablets in stores during their holiday shopping
- 54% plan on using smart phones in stores to check prices
- 43% plan to use smart phones to find a better deal
- 40% plan on using smart phones to stay out of crowded stores
