In an effort to help reduce financial gift-giving stress this holiday season, SunTrust introduced the onUp Challenge, "a free, gamified experience that turns finances into an adventure," the company said in a news release.
“The holidays are full of joy, celebration and an unmentioned pressure to spend,” Brian Nelson Ford, financial well-being executive at SunTrust, said. “During a time of year when financial stress is traditionally high, a little smart spending, preparation and planning can lead to financial confidence and enhance the joy of the season.”
Potential survey limitations
According to SunTrust, because the online survey isn’t based on a probability sample, an estimate of theoretical sampling error cannot be calculated.
