US Consumer Tracker: Consumers Spend Stimulus Checks on Bills and Essentials (Full Report)


What's Inside

Coresight Research’s February 8 survey provides a detailed update on US consumers’ behaviors, concerns and expectations amid the coronavirus crisis, with a focus on the implications for US retail.

Our tracker questions cover the following:

  • How consumers have spent or plan to spend their second stimulus checks
  • What product categories respondents had purchased in-store and online in the past two weeks
  • Which retailers respondents had bought food and nonfood products from in the past two weeks
  • What activities respondents have done in the past two weeks
  • Whether respondents are currently avoiding public areas—and which types of places they are avoiding

We also present findings and trend data on what consumers are buying more and less of than pre-pandemic.
