Excitement of Rentals

The present research examines consumer-product relationship in renting. Across four studies, we found that renting a product was perceived as similar to a fling, resulting in higher excitement compared to consuming an owned product. We further demonstrated that this elevated excitement influenced downstream behaviors including product evaluation and risk taking.
