Wealthy Americans, those who make more than $250,000 per year, overwhelmingly chose Amazon.com as their online retailer of choice, according to a new survey from Unity Marketing.Over 45% of “ultra-affluents” reported shopping at Amazon in the last quarter, a percentage that was three times higher than the next most popular online destination, eBay.com.
Boutique and flash sale sites that typically cater to upscale shoppers attracted far fewer ultra-affluents, according to the research.
8.4% reported shopping at Blue Nile, an online diamond retailer, while 8.1% said they shopped at RueLaLa.com and 7.3% visited Gilt.com.
Those sites are becoming more popular, however, as more shoppers said they visited them in the first quarter of 2011 than in any previous quarter, according to Unity.
