The Experiential Advantage: a Meta-Analysis

We meta-analyze the experiential advantage literature (Van Boven and Gilovich 2003) comparing material purchases to experiential purchases in 129 studies. While measures of happiness had a “small-to-medium” effect size overall (d = .26), measures of impressions and personal identity had directionally larger effect sizes (d = .45).
