Nearly half of Americans admit they’re fine with going into debt if it means treating themselves after more than a year of the coronavirus pandemic. A poll out today from CreditCards.com found 44-percent of people surveyed said they’re willing to go into debt.
Younger Americans are particularly willing to take on debt while being good to themselves. That includes 59-percent of millennials, ages 24-40, and 56-percent of Gen Z-ers, ages 18-24. On the other hand, only 40-percent of Gen X-ers, ages 41-56 and 32-percent of Baby Boomers, ages 57-75 said the same.
