Christmas Promotions in September – What Happened to Halloween? the Effect of Prospective Event Markers on Attitudes Towards Promotions

In-store, thematic promotions can trigger thoughts of events that may occur before the promoted event (prospective event markers). In four studies, we find that event-related prospective markers generated are temporarily closer to the promoted event, increasing attitudes towards early promotions, while the reverse is true for event-unrelated markers.
