For Fun Or Profit: How Shopping Orientation Influences the Effectiveness of Monetary and Nonmonetary Promotions

Two experiments found that shopping orientation (experiential vs. task-focused) influences how consumers react towards promotions. This influence was moderated by promotion type (monetary vs. nonmonetary). The results indicate that consumers evaluate promotions and retailers as more attractive when the promotional benefits are congruent with consumers’ shopping goals.
