Promoting Portion Downsizing By Improving Consumer Response to Percentage Cost Vs. Percentage Benefit Offers

We find that individual differences such as cognitive ability and shopping goals moderate consumers’ ability to objectively assess the value of percentage-based cost (50% off) and benefit (50% free) offers. Providing ratio-based rates nudges consumers away from obesogenic % benefit offers in favor of healthier and economically-superior % cost offers.
