A Penny Saved Is Another Penny Spurned: the Effect of Promotions on Consumer Impatience

Two experiments reveal that exposure to promotions increases willingness to spend money to avoid waiting and decreases willingness to wait to obtain additional money. Moreover, we find that the link between promotions and impatience is moderated by BAS sensitivity.
