Strategy Compatibility: the Time Versus Money Effect on Consumer Decision Making

We show that priming time or money can lead to two distinct evaluation strategies that affect consumers’ decisions. The results of four experiments demonstrate systematic preference reversals across several choice contexts, suggesting that the activation of time (vs. money) leads to the greater use of alternative-based (vs. attribute-based) evaluation strategies.
