Consumer Spending Habits - Brazil - July 2013

“Although Brazilians like a good bargain, what they really value is the opportunity to get a lucrative deal. Many wait for their favorite products to go on sale before they buy them. To compensate for this, they aren’t afraid when thinking of asking for a discount on the final purchase amount, a customary thing to do when purchases are large or consist of several items. In any event, companies still have room to put in place more exciting and focused promotions that encourage consumers to participate based on their individual interests.”

– Sheila Salina, Lifestyle Senior Analyst

This study will answer the following questions:

  • What kind of product/service did Brazilians place a high priority on in their recent shopping? What did they spend the most on? What did they spend the least on? What were the reasons for this?
  • Which bargains were used most when buying? What discounts do Brazilians like to get? What promotions were most appealing to them and why?
  • Do Brazilians value low prices or brand image when shopping?
  • What type of promotion best suits each type of consumer?
