Product Retention (Vs. Acquisition) Choices and Preference For Person-Related Features

Consumers regularly make choices about owned products (e.g., which of the sneakers bought through Zappos.com to retain). Prior research focused on cases of pre-ownership choice (acquisition), leaving post-ownership choice (retention) understudied. Across four studies, product features that people can identify with (e.g., “smartness”) were more important in retention (vs. acquisition).
