Published on

The Discover Spending Monitor is a quarterly report that polls over 8,000 consumers on a monthly basis. This survey details the spending intentions of consumers and reports trends about their outlook of finances and their perception of the economy. It is unique because it is the only survey of its kind to measure the behavior of credit union members. Lately, there has been a spike in consumer confidence, which opens the door for credit unions to grow and market their products. So how sharp is this increase in consumer confidence? How can your credit union take advantage of this opportunity? This presentation will provide a detailed analysis of current trends and point out how your credit union can take advantage of the improving economy. Learn more at: www.nafcu.org/discover

  10. 10. Key Takeaways1. Consumer perception of the economy and their personal finances is improving among both members and non- members, with member confidence trending consistently higher than non-members2.

  18. 18. Key Takeaways1. Both credit union members and non-members demonstrate a strong intent to spend on discretionary entertainment2. The credit, debit and prepaid card space is where consumers may look to execute their discretionary spending intentions – leverage merchant funded offers and promotions. Your networks, processors and partners may be sourcing these for you at no charge – maximize all of your relationships.3. Credit unions should create partnerships with local movie theatres, restaurants, ice cream stands, etc. to give members discounts when visiting at these types of merchants. For example, free appetizer with dinner or free popcorn at a local movie theatre. This encourages credit unions to promote the shop local concept and keep money within the community. 18 ©2012 DFS Services LLC Confidential and Proprietary Do Not Copy or Distribute

  24. 24. Key Takeaways1. Both members and non-members are slightly more inclined to “pay as you go” with more of them indicating they prefer to pay balances in full and less likely to revolve – does your credit union have a strategy and product, particularly a rewards product, to offer to transactors?2. CU members distrust of credit card companies remains virtually unchanged, while non-member distrust has declined3. There is an opportunity to leverage the reputation credit unions enjoy with consumers by positioning themselves as trusted financial consultants 24 ©2012 DFS Services LLC Confidential and Proprietary Do Not Copy or Distribute
