To Share Or Not to Share: Coupon-Sharing As a Way to Increase Expenditures of Face Concerned Consumers

Unlike previous literature focusing on traditional, non-shareable coupons, this study highlights a new form of coupons that can be shared with friends. Across studies conducted in the U.S. and China, we find convergent results that high face concerned consumers are willing to spend more to obtain shareable than non-shareable coupons.
