I recently noticed some interesting data published by MX which looked at some changes in consumer behavior during the pandemic. A few points on saving caught my eye:

  • 50% of consumers plan to save their stimulus check.
  • 2/3 have changed their view of saving since the pandemic.
  • 34% said they are putting more into savings than before.
  • Those in the income bracket of $40k-$59k are spending more on savings.

These findings are reinforced by data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis in April 2020 which showed a spike in the national savings rate to 33%, historic highs.
