“18% Off the Original Price Then Another 12% Off” Or “12% Off Then 18% Off”: How Multiple Discounts Influence Consumer Evaluations

We investigate how consumers evaluate offerings with multiple percentage changes (e.g., take 18% off the price, followed by 12%; 18%-12%). We find when the two percentages are presented together, a large-small (18%-12%) order is judged larger than a small-large order (12%-18%). This pattern reverses when the percentages are encountered sequentially.
