Moderators of the Denomination Effect: Role of Hedonic Versus Utilitarian Consumption and Denomination Matching

The denomination effect suggests that individuals are less likely to spend when money is in the form of a single large denomination (e.g., a $10 bill) relative to many smaller denominations (e.g., ten $1 bills). This research examines whether hedonic versus utilitarian considerations and denomination matching moderate the denomination effect.
