Where does Amarillo rank? WalletHub lists US cities by holiday budget size

Local News

The holidays are about spending quality time with people you care about, not splashing the cash, so be thoughtful about gifts but don’t worry about their price tag.

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) – How much do you spend for the holidays? WalletHub compiled data from around the US to see which cities clocked in with the largest holiday budgets.

While Flower Mound, Texas, came in at #1 on the list – Amarillo came in at #367 with a top budget of around $786.

The data and findings, according to WalletHub:

Besides bringing good cheer, the holidays also can invite seasonal stress, a primary source of which is our addiction to spending. Plus, this year, holiday shopping may be more stressful than usual considering the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has left a lasting impact on many people’s finances. However, holiday sales still grew 8.3% last year despite the pandemic, so it’s likely we will see even better growth this year now that conditions have been improving.

In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, holiday shoppers also face difficulties from credit card debt. In 2021, the average household credit card debt is $7,854, according to WalletHub’s data. At the beginning of 2021, there was over $900 billion in total credit card debt, and WalletHub projects a net increase of around $100 billion this year.

To help consumers avoid post-holiday regret, WalletHub calculated the maximum holiday budget for each of 570 U.S. cities using five key characteristics of the population, such as income, age, and savings-to-monthly expenses ratio.
