What Gift Do College Loan Debtors Want?

Dec 22, 2017

Asia Gentry (left) and Jessica Atterberry took the poll on gift choices for college grads, with some surprising results.

If you’ve got a recent college graduate on your gift list, you might be interested in the results of a survey conducted by the finance firm Lend Edu. They asked people with student loans whether they’d rather get a holiday gift or an equal value payment toward that debt. We decided to take that poll for a tiny test drive with two recent college grads, who gave us plenty of food for thought.

In the Lend Edu survey, there were 13 items on the “gift” list, but only one of those got more votes than a student loan contribution. So what was that one popular gift? Listen to the story to find out.
