WASHINGTON (11/25/09)—More than 20 media outlets turned out to cover the ninth annual projection of consumers’ holiday spending plans produced by a national survey sponsored by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and Consumer Federation of America (CFA).

The survey of more than 1,000 adult Americans showed that a whopping 55% intended to decrease their holiday spending this year. (See related story in today’s News Now: Survey: Consumer desire to cut holiday spending soars.) CUNA's Mark Wolff, senior vice president of communications, said the annual event with CFA--particularly with its no-nonsense advice to help consumers control their holiday debt--has become another way to show credit unions are a trustworthy resource for the nation's consumers.

* NBC News * CNN and CNN Newsource * Bloomberg * FOX News * ABC Radio News * Hearst TV * HD News * Cox TV * CBC News (Canadian Broadcasting Corp.) * AP TV (Associated Press)
