Credit Card Survey From CIS

Published: 5/28/2010

Well known UK financial services company CIS has been looking at the state of the credit card market and seeing how we as a nation use them.

One of the first things that came to light in the CIS survey was the amount of money spent on the busiest day of the week, namely Saturday. The average Brit will spend over GBP500,000 over the course of their lifetime on that one day alone. Looking at situations when credit cards are used it is the usual suspects of clothes and shoes that top the list, closely followed by social activities like dining out and visiting bars.

The person responsible for credit cards at CIS felt that the findings were very representative of how we live our lives. After a hard week at work Saturday is the day to let our hair down and live a little.
