Stretch Your Dollar

Your groceries delivered and your favorite restaurant dishes brought to your door! we are stretching your dollar with online food shopping. 

Skipping the grocery store and restaurant and instead buying online appears to be a growing trend. 

A new report from shows that for many, the biggest online expense is food.

The survey looked at credit card purchases and found that 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 where else people are buying online. 

13% of those surveyed pay for streaming services online every week, 6% percent bought clothing and other household items each week, 2% paid for travel, while only 1% bought event tickets online. 

The survey also found the majority of online shoppers pay with their credit card instead of their debit card.
