Cautious consumers cut back the amounts they spent on Santander credit cards last year, but also made more purchases, research has shown.

Santander Credit Cards said the amount spent on sports and in toy stores saw the biggest fall in the value of money spent, dropping by 24% per user, while travel agencies came second with a 13% decrease.
