The Immediate and Delayed Effects of Price Promotions on Post-Purchase Consumption Experience

We examine how price promotions influence post-purchase hedonic consumption experience. Four experiments demonstrate that when consumption occurs immediately after payment, discounts make consumption more enjoyable; however, this pattern reverses when consumption is delayed. The experiments provide support for the roles of feelings and involvement, respectively, in accounting for these effects.
