The Effects of Consumption Goals and Assortment on Cross-Price Sensitivity

We propose that activating a consumption goal makes people more sensitive to the price discounts of competing products in the same goal-derived category as the target product. Also, we propose that when one of two products is on sale, including a third option that highlights the similarity of the first two options would make people more sensitive to the price discount.
