The Moderating Effect of Regulatory Focus on Consumer Preferences For Price Discounts and Bonus Packs

This preference does not hold for prevention-oriented consumers who prefer a price discount, but promotion-oriented consumers prefer a bonus pack. We attribute this effect to the regulatory fit between a promotion offer and consumers’ regulatory orientation.
