When Do Limited Time Offers Work? a Reactance Perspective

Retailers, e-commerce websites, and television shopping channels frequently use limited-time offers such as “one day only sale” or “deal expires in one hour” to promote their products. This research uses the theoretical lens of reactance to identify new moderators of the effect of limited time offers on product evaluation.
