Loyalty Point Spending and Stockpiling – a Construal Perspective

We present a construal-level account of loyalty-point spending and stockpiling behavior. We show that loyalty points are construed abstractly relative to money. This affects what people redeem their points on and when they redeem. Further, we show how stockpiling can be influenced by altering the nature of the loyalty program.
