Spying on Your Other’s Spending Habits?

Ever take a peek at the spending habits of someone you share a credit card account with?

Matt Schulz at Credit Cards dot com says it happens quite a bit

17 million US credit cardholders have admitted to sneaking a peek at another person’s spending.

Schulz says those spending spies are often in the lowest and highest income brackets. He says the lower the income the more likely you want to know where every dollar goes while higher income people have a lot to lose.

Schulz says their research also finds that Republicans are more likely to spy than Democrats.

Schulz says there is no clear reason why people are peeking at their partner’s spending but it’s likely the result of poor communication.
