Infographic - Holiday Gift Cards by the Numbers

For our 2nd annual holiday gift card survey, we polled a random group of 1,000 shoppers from our member base and asked them questions ranging from "How many gift cards do you plan to buy to give as a present this holiday season?" to "What kind of gift card would you most like to receive?"

The biggest news is that over 50% of those surveyed said they plan to buy one or more gift cards to give as a present this holiday season.

Other results from the survey include:

  • More than 75% of respondents said they had at one time or another purchased a gift card to give as a holiday present.
  • Satisfaction with receiving gift cards as a holiday gift increased by 4% with a little over 84% of respondents saying they were "Satisfied" or "Very Satisfied" with receiving gift cards as a holiday present, up from 80% last year.
  • Gift cards with a value of $25 were the most popular denomination.
  • Kids are the most common recipients of the over $30 billion in holiday gift card purchases.
  • The most common reasons respondents said they buy gift cards as holiday gifts are to allow recipients to choose their own gift and make holiday shopping easier.
