According to a new survey commissioned by Visa, high income earners, those with a household income of more than $125,000, are more likely to clip coupons and shop at discount stores than the general population.
Also, ninety percent of those households think of themselves as middle-class or upper-middle-class rather than affluent. If being in the top 7 percent of wage earners throughout the country and earning more than three times the national median household income ($43,000) is considered “middle-class” I wouldn’t even know how to classify myself.
