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.

More:
 

  • 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.
