Not All “Wins” Are Equal: the Effect of Unequally Attractive Prizes on Stimulus Appraisal

We investigate the effect of uncertain price promotions with unequally attractive prizes on the promotional brand. With a combination of one field and four lab experiments, we show that winners of an inferior (vs. superior) prize develop ambivalent feelings/attitudes that in turn reduces their evaluation of the promotional band.
