“For many people, the December holiday season is the best time of year,” states Dave Papeck, senior district manager for online lender AmeriCash Loans. “But the cost of celebrations and gifts causes millions of Americans significant seasonal financial distress.”


New study finds many Americans struggling with holiday expenses

A recent report by PYMNTS Intelligence and financial services company LendingClub found that seasonal factors—including fluctuating utility bills, tax payments and special events such as holidays—can impact consumers’ financial stability. PYMNTS is a global leader in data, news and insights on payments and the platforms powering the connected economy.

Events and celebrations, and the holiday spending that accompanies them, were cited as the top fourth-quarter stressor by almost half (47 percent) of consumers in the study. With the last-minute pressure to buy gifts and host gatherings, 36 percent of consumers identify December as the month of the highest seasonal financial distress.


Families face hard choices during the holidays

For families on tight budgets, celebrations and gift giving are often kept to bare minimums.

“We sympathize with parents who struggle to afford presents for their kids,” says Dave. “But for millions of families, it can be difficult if not impossible to secure a small-dollar loan from a bank or credit union.
“And many of the available alternative lending solutions would put these folks in a cycle of revolving debt that can be hard to escape,” he adds. “We want to offer these families a dependable resource when cash is needed for holiday expenses or unexpected bills.”
