Spin Of The Month: PayPal

THE CLAIM

86% of Americans "wish they could leave [their wallets] at home."*

THE SOURCE

A PayPal survey that asked, "Which of the following places, if any, do you wish you didn't have to bring your wallet?" and then listed locations such as a beach, gym, concert, and bar.

DOESN'T THAT OVERSTATE THE RESULTS?

"[We're] talking about this in the context of what's available to you through PayPal, in terms of ways that really enable you to leave your wallet at home."
—Jeff Rutledge, PayPal spokesman
