New Report: America's bargain hunting habits

When it comes to saving money, women are on a mission.

A new study by Consumer Reports shows 83 percent of women admit to being bargain hunters.

But, 23 percent say they occasionally buy things on sale that they really don't need.


  • 59 percent wait for a sale to buy what they want.
  • 89 percent say they'd look for a sale even if money were no object.

Consumer Reports added that clipped and printed coupons are out and smartphone deals are in. Nearly a quarter of respondents said they use smartphone coupons, and only 1 percent of women today say they aren't sure whether they are deal seekers.
