Framing and Sales Promotions: Is Gas Scarce?

Manufacturers routinely use sales-promotions to encourage purchases by consumers. This paper focuses on how the framing of such promotions affects consumers’ perceptions of offer attractiveness and purchase intentions. We compare consumer responses to instant savings framed as a dollar discount, a gasoline gift-card, and a monetary discount framed as non-monetary.
