Unanticipated Emotional Benefits of Price Promotions

In field and laboratory experiments, we compared the forecasted and experienced impact of price promotions on the consumption utility of goods. Whereas promotion level linearly increased consumption utility in experience, forecasts of consumption utility were insensitive to promotion level.
