Groupon.com made coupon cutting digital and had gained popularity in recent years. I was looking at some demographics and data of Groupon users and I am amazed that I found affluent people tend to use Groupon more than the poor! Below are some of the interesting information:
Amazingly, the use of Groupon rises with income. It seems like prudence is a requirement for wealth. People are wealthy because they practise a certain degree of prudence and this habit goes on even when their income increases.
The number of graduate users overwhelms the non-graduates.
I am not surprised that Asians are prudent people, especially the Chinese!
I am not surprised that females are more prudent than males.
Older people seek for discounts, probably because they have lower income while the 35-49 age group has higher expenditure due to the need to raise kids.
Are you surprised by any result? Does it change your perspective of the relationship between wealth and prudence?
