CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --LendingTree asked over 2,000 Americans about their Halloween spending plans, including whether or not they think they'll go into debt for Halloween-related expenses, if they plan to skip on spending money on the holiday this year due to the pandemic and what they plan to buy if they're splurging.

Key findings

"Throughout the pandemic, we've heard of people going above and beyond when it comes to holidays and other events to make up for how crummy the last couple of years have been," said Matt Schulz, LendingTree's credit card expert. "Don't let your big Halloween blowout turn into debt, though. One evening of fun isn't worth it if it is followed by months of debt."
