Most still do their shopping offline.

NEW YORK — Despite their reputation for being fixated on technology, 53 percent of millennials make most of their purchases offline, according to a new survey.

The finding is part of the Millennial Shopping Report from CouponFollow, a coupon code website. The report looks at the purchasing decisions of Americans between the ages of 20-35 and the implications for retailers, both online and offline.

About 31 percent of millennials make the majority of purchases online via desktop, the survey found. And 16 percent make most of their purchases online via mobile device.

Interestingly, 58 percent of younger millennials (ages 20-23) make the majority of their purchases offline — up five percentage points from the generational average.

CouponFollow surveyed 1,000 millennial-aged (20–35 years old) Americans from all 50 states, across a broad economic scope.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
