WSL/Strategic Retail’s How America Shops MegaTrends report, Moving On 2012, found that Hispanic women represent the most passionate and proactive shopper segment, searching for the best deals across all retail channels. The report also noted that Hispanic women are more actively using mobile devices, coupons, online searches, dollar stores and deep discount retailers to save money, as compared to other female demographics. These findings gain significance when compared to the shopping behaviors of other ethnic demographics, as Hispanic women consistently rank higher than both Caucasian and African American women, by about 10 percentage points. Here’s what else the report found:

• Nearly 60% of Hispanic women use apps to search for the lowest price.
