Marketing Exclusion: When Loyalty Programs Make Customers Feel Like "Outsiders"
We demonstrate that loyalty program's preferential treatment to privileged customers causes unprivileged customers to feel meaningless and un-belonging. We term this “marketing exclusion”. We show that marketing exclusion decreases customer satisfaction, affects product choice, induces aggressive behavior and increases customer perceptions that the brand is less warm and more elitist.
