P11. a Price Premium on a Trivial But Weak Preferred Attribute Increase Choice: the Roles of Scarcity, Arousal and Perceived Risk

We add to extant research on trivial attribute by addressing a“small price premium effect”on choice and providing a psychological mechanism. Results showed that a small price premium on a trivial attribute increases choice share of weak preferred options. Large price premium eliminates this kind of effect. Underlying mechanisms were explored.
