With Father’s Day this weekend, it’s a great time to take a look at how brands can reach dads along their paths to purchase.
A new study from Valassis reveals that parents are more alike than dissimilar when it comes to shopping for consumer packaged goods. According to our findings, dads are just as–and, in some cases, even more–likely as moms to use print and digital coupons/discounts. Surprised? You wouldn’t be the only one. This is an opportunity many miss out on, based on the assumption that moms are the main saver in the family.
An infographic from the study is below, but here are a few findings I found to be of particular interest:
- 96% of dads use coupons versus 90% of all adults.
- Dads are last-minute shoppers and are twice as likely than as adults to make purchase decisions for food, personal care, and household goods on the way to the store.
- 89% of dads search for discounts from their mobile devices on the spot in the store–34 points higher than all adults.
- 86% of dads said they would switch brands based on a discount notification received in-store through their mobile devices.
- Dads outpace moms for savings apps–81% use a coupon app vs, 62% of moms when it comes to saving on groceries.
