Price Discounting For Emotional Impact

We propose that price promotions temporarily reduce the motivation of consumers to engage in effortful deliberation, which in turn shifts the balance of power toward affect. Consequently, price discounting produces several predictable results, including a stronger preference for affectively superior goods and valuations that are more polarized and scope insensitive.
