US Survey Update: How Consumers Spent and Plan To Spend Stimulus Checks (Select Findings)

What's Inside

This report provides select findings from Coresight Research’s August 5 survey of US consumers on the coronavirus crisis. We asked respondents about the impact of the pandemic on their behaviors and expectations, with a focus on implications for retailers.

This report is available for free and can be accessed by registering for a free account. We highlight three selected findings from our weekly survey:

  • How consumers have spent their first stimulus check—with a focus on the prioritization of basic financial obligations versus discretionary retail spending
  • Whether respondents are currently avoiding public areas or travel
  • Whether respondents are buying more online than they used to

Our full report is available to premium subscribers and includes further findings:

  • How consumers plan to spend any second stimulus check
  • A full list of the public areas or travel that consumers are avoiding
  • What activities respondents have done in the past two weeks and what they expect to do in the next two weeks
  • Whether respondents are buying more or less of any retail categories as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and, if so, which types of products
  • Whether US shoppers are making more purchases online during the coronavirus outbreak and, if so, which categories
