High school prom spending: $1,139 per family

Posted: Updated:

Prom season is upon us, and that means big spending.

A Visa survey finds on average, families expect to spend 1,139 dollars on prom this year.

That's up about 40 percent from two years ago, but only a slight increase from last year.

Families in the northeast expect to pay the most, while midwestern families gave the most frugal estimate.

Visa surveyed more than one-thousand parents of prom-aged teens for the study.

The survey also found parents will foot about 60 percent of the prom bill, while teens cover about 40 percent.
