Early Warning Services, LLC, the network operator behind Zelle, today released the results of its Holiday Survey and the results are clear: the most-wanted holiday gift of 2018 is money. Scrooges and humbugs beware: the national survey found that nearly 50% of those surveyed plan to give money this holiday season, while the majority (58%) prefer to receive money as a gift. With Zelle, you can send and receive money with people you know and trust – right from your banking app.
“This year, don’t blow your budget on gifts that are probably going to end up re-gifted or in a landfill – give the gift everyone wants – money,” said personal finance expert and New York Times bestselling author Nicole Lapin. “If you think of something a friend or loved one would truly appreciate receiving, but can’t swing the cost on your own, split it with friends and family using Zelle and include a sweet personalized note.“
