Bobby Seagull on buyer’s regret

It’s easier than ever to spend. But how often do you regret an impulse purchase?

Well, regret no more, as new research has found revealed the optimum time to wait before making a purchase is to avoid regret is just 2 days and 21 hours.

That’s according to Mathematician Bobby Seagull, who has run the numbers. His advice – wait…wait…and wait some more.

This comes as new research from Vanquis has found the average UK adult makes no less than seven impulse purchases, worth £150 or more, each year. That’s at least £1,050 of our hard-earned cash we may end up regretting spending.

Aston spoke to mathematician Bobby Seagull and Fiona Anderson, , managing director of cards at Vanquis.
