Promoting Pi Day: Consumer Inferences About Special Day-Themed Promotions

Firms increasingly offer promotions around “special days” (e.g., 31.4% off for Pi Day on March 14th). In field and lab studies, we demonstrate that when consumers infer marketers to be creative for offering special day promotions, this inference results in more positive evaluations of the promotion and increased purchase intentions.
