Aggregated Bank of America Credit and Debit Card Spending Continues to Increase, with total spending up 11% year over year in June


While Consumer Sentiment has Weakened, Household Balance Sheets Remain in Good Shape

NEW YORK, July 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bank of America Institute published a new article today which shows consumer spending continues to demonstrate some signs of resiliency despite a backdrop of rising inflation. Total aggregated Bank of America credit and debit card spending was up 11% year over year in June, compared to 13% and 9% in April and May year over year respectively. Spending growth per household increased 3.3% year over year in the 28 days prior to June 30. Gas prices continue to squeeze consumers but spending on services such as travel and entertainment is still boosted by pent-up demand. The labor market remains supportive of consumers, and their balance sheets are in good shape.

Highlights of the publication:

"Consumers are in better shape to respond to a slowdown in the U.S. economy than they have been in many previous business cycles," said David Tinsley, senior economist for the Bank of America Institute. "But with some slowdown in services spending, we may need to wait until the summer is over to get a clearer picture of the strength of the underlying consumer momentum."
