Cleveland A survey released findings on Thursday that there are strong ties between consumer spending habits and their paycheck cycles.
The “2009 Payday Cycle Spending Survey,” conducted by WorkPlace Media, revealed that 64% of respondents said they stopped making major, not-bill-related purchases just six days after receiving their paycheck.
The survey also found that 82% of consumers would be more likely to utilize an offer from their employer rather than one they received at home.
