Perceived Financial Constraints and Purchase Happiness
Although financial constraints can increase compensatory consumption, it is unclear whether they affect purchase happiness. We find that perceived financial constraints decrease purchase happiness, partly because they cause consumers to spontaneously consider opportunity costs. This effect is attenuated for planned (vs. unplanned) purchases and results in more negative consumer reviews.
