A survey conducted by Chase Freedom found that gifts are the expense consumers typically forget to plan for (32%), followed by holiday hosting, and travel. Despite that forgetfulness, consumers plan to spend more this holiday season than last year, and they’re turning to a variety of ways to get more for their money.
Chase Ultimate Rewards provides a one-stop shop for holiday gifts, where eligible cardmembers can use their credit card rewards to purchase gifts and save money. The platform allows you to spend your points on just about anything – including gift cards from major retailers and even Apple products, to experiences, travel and more. If you’re strapped for cash, the help you need to overcome your forgetfulness might just come from the card you’ve already been using.
Farnoosh Torabi, a Chase Financial Education Ambassador, personal finance expert, bestselling author, TV personality and sought-after speaker, is available via satellite on Friday, Nov. 22 to share how consumers can shop smart, while saving time and money this holiday season. She can also discuss the best ways to save, accumulate credit card rewards and turn them into gifts and make shopping easier this holiday season.
