Survey Shows Back to School Spending Increase, More Discounts for Teachers, Parents

On the eve of the upcoming Texas Tax Free Weekend, an online deals website finds parents spending more for back-to-school, and has compiled a list of discounts for teachers.

Carson Yarbrough, with Offers.com, shares the specials and some information regarding back-to-school-shopping.

“We have combed through thousands of deals to bring teachers the best discounts for everything from school supplies to hotel rooms.” Yarbrough shares.

In addition to the deals, Yarbrough says their research reveals some interesting information regarding back-to-school purchases.

Offers.com surveyed parents across the U.S. on their purchase and spending plans. The survey found that back-to-school spending is up nearly 18% from 2016 in total family spending.

Per the survey, most consumers (54.8%) begin their back-to-school shopping in August, while about 27.3% of shoppers get their back-to-school purchases finished earlier on in July.

Yarbrough adds, “From our survey, we discovered that the average American spends $208.10 on back-to-school shopping for each child. Most consumers (53.5%) will be spending anywhere from $101-$300 on each child for back-to-school.”

In terms of total back-to-school spending, the average American spends $428.39 on their family for back-to-school, up from last year’s average of $359 per family.

A majority of consumers (71%) still do their back-to-school shopping in-store, while 22% of shoppers opt for the convenience of online shopping.

When back-to-school shopping, 63.6% of consumers use coupons to save on their back-to-school gear. A majority (41.5%) use in-store coupons, while 22.1% of consumers choose to use online coupons, always conveniently available and updated at Offers.com.

Some of the top retailers have great savings and deals for back-to-school.
