The holiday season is certainly a time filled with joy, but it can be a very expensive time of year. Between gifts, travel, decorations, parties, and food, Canadians find themselves spending more during the season. According to a study by Ipsos, 46% of Canadians are stressed about the holiday season and think inflation will make it more difficult to buy gifts.
Despite inflationary concerns, Canadians aren’t holding back on their holiday spending; A survey conducted by the financial post revealed that 50% of Canadians will turn to their credit cards for financial relief this festive season. Since credit cards have some of the highest interest rates, consumers will have balances carrying over into the new year leading to credit card debt. Today, credit card debt is at an all-time high as usage reaches historic heights.
