CFA/CUNA To Present 2013 Holiday Spending Survey Wednesday
WASHINGTON (11/25/13)--For the 14th consecutive year, news media from across the nation will be tuning in Wednesday as the Consumer Federation of America (CFA) and the Credit Union National Association release their latest consumer holiday spending survey.

CUNA Chief Economist Bill Hampel and CFA Executive Director Stephen Brobeck are scheduled to present the findings of the survey, which provides a glimpse into consumer holiday spending plans. Holiday debt concerns and general attitudes about the economy are also addressed by the survey.

CUNA and the CFA also will present tips for managing holiday spending, including low-cost and free ways for families to celebrate the holiday.

The survey is released just ahead of Black Friday and the traditional start of the holiday shopping season.

The release of the survey typically garners heavy media attention from local, national and international news outlets, including ABC News, CNN, National Public Radio, Xinhua, FOX News, Reuters and Business News Americas.
