Your groceries, delivered!
And your favorite restaurant dishes– brought to your door!
Skipping the grocery store and restaurant and buying online instead appears to be a growing trend. A new report from creditcards.com shows that for many, the biggest online expense is food.
The survey looked at credit card purchases and found 26% of surveyed adults are buying groceries online every week. While about one-in-five surveyed are buying prepared food and drinks on a weekly basis.
The reason for the high rate of spending may be the rewards credit cards offer for restaurant or food-related purchases. Compared to other purchases, food takes up the biggest chunk of cash every week, but here’s what else people are buying online.
13% of those surveyed paid for streaming services online every week and more than a quarter every month.
6% of those surveyed bought clothing and other household items each week, and 2% paid for travel weekly, while only one-percent bought event tickets online.
The survey also found the majority of online shoppers pay with their credit card instead of debit card.
The creditcards.com survey also found that 29% of Americans have made an online impulse purchase in the past month.
