Empirical decomposition of customer responses to discount
As for dollar-off coupons, customers in Cluster 1 show the highest increase in spending and a moderate increase in the inter-purchase time and hence should be on top of the retailer's list to receive dollar-off coupons. Moreover, dollar-off coupons in Cluster 2, as the largest cluster identified, seem to be causing a significant delay in
Coupons in context: discounting prices or decreasing
These were “$ off” coupons, so as to generalize the effects of Study 3 that used BOGO coupons (note however, that many pizzerias, in fact, use BOGO coupons). Finally, to examine the generalizability of the conceptual arguments proposed in Studies 1 and 2, we manipulated both the presence of alternate price information of the company’s own
Trade deals and/or on-package coupons
The coupon-induced repeat-purchase effect contributes to enhancing the appeal of on-pack coupons. As a result, on-pack coupons are more attractive than peel-off coupons or instant rebates (Martín-Herrán et al., 2010), which only affect the first purchase and do not have any direct effect on subsequent purchases. Further numerical analysis
Two-period discount pricing strategies for an e-commerce
The online coupons are divided into short-term coupons and long-term coupons. They are defined as a single online coupon recommended to consumers in period 1, and consumers can only redeem them within a specified period (period 1 or period 2). The platform will offer these online coupons to encourage consumers to purchase products.
Omnichannel retailing operations with coupon promotions
The omnichannel retailer is better off dropping the price and not providing coupons when online channel is the preference for a large portion of consumers. Such pricing and coupon promotion strategies also true when the negative effect of coupon promotions is great.
A comparative analysis of marketing promotions and
1. Introduction. Retailers use many types of sales promotions. A consumer shopping at a large retailer is likely to see signs advertising “Take 30% off regular price” on some products, “buy one at the regular price get the second for 1 2 off” on other products, or find ads containing coupons entitling her to take some amounts off the regular products' prices.
Moorad Choudhry, in The Bond & Money Markets, 2001. 14.5.2 Bond interest payment. Corporate bonds pay a fixed or floating-rate coupon. Floating-rate bonds were reviewed in Chapter 5. Zero-coupon bonds are also popular in the corporate market, indeed corporate zero-coupon bonds differ from zero-coupon bonds in government markets in that they are actually issued by the borrower, …
A second test series composed of 17 coupons was also performed: 8 cut on-axis, 0°, and tested at two different stress levels, 6 at 30°off-axis, tested at three different stress levels and 3 coupons cut at 60°, tested at just one stress level. A different spectrum, henceforth …
Lap Shear Test
The lap-shear test is illustrated in Fig. 3.13. It was originally made from two pieces of 1.6 mm metal strip one inch in width, bonded together over a length of half an inch. These dimensions have now (in Europe) been replaced by the metric equivalents shown in the figure. This testpiece is loaded to failure in a normal tensile testing machine.
Customized Targeting Strategies for Category Coupons to
For instance, Amazon offers “25% off of ANY Book” and eBay distributes “Extra 10% off Fashion & Beauty” coupons. The focal retailer currently designs a category-specific promotion when its marketing campaign budget is limited and so does not allow for the more expensive, non-category-specific promotions and their higher redemption rates.
The influence of coupon duration on consumers’ redemption
The face value has important implications for sellers' profitability through the number and types of consumers attracted by coupons. In selecting the optimal face value, the sellers need to trade-off the gain from attracting new consumers with the loss from coupon redemption by loyal consumers.
Consumers use of price promotions: a model and its
H3: Consumers’ liking of (a) coupons, (b) cents-off and (c) deals in general positively influence their purchase intention of the promoted product. H4: Consumers’ liking of (a) coupons, (b) cents-off and (c) deals in general positively influence their stockpiling intention. 2.4.
The effect of permanent product discounts and order
In China, order coupons are normally formatted as amount-off discounts. 4. The focal retailer offers both unconditional coupons (e.g., a 10 CNY-off coupon, which can be redeemed for any orders) and conditional coupons (e.g., a 10 CNY-off coupon, which can be only redeemed for orders with a certain amount).
Robust exclusion and market division through loyalty
Notice that in period 1 I only offers a discount off the price it will later offer to buyers who did not agree to the loyalty discount (I does not commit to a price when it offers the loyalty discount). This is a fairly common assumption in the exclusive dealing literature.
Does online retail coupons and memberships create
3.1. Theory of impulsiveness3.1.1. Coupons on purchase value and perceived impulsiveness. Online coupons are mostly used to avail a specified discount on the end transaction amount by using a coupon code (Drossos et al., 2015, Suri et al., 2004).Consumers try to optimise the best value for a deal, and this may derive from both psychological and functional benefits (Kumar & …
At least three coupons were tested at each one of the four or five stress levels of any S–N curve. All tests were conducted at room temperature, 18–22 °C. As was mentioned previously, axial tests on coupons cut off-axis, at an angle 0, from principal material directions were performed to induce complex stress states in the principal
Pricing strategy and moral hazard: Copay coupons in
Branded drug manufacturers issue copay coupons to compete with generics as their brands are coming off patent. To explore the impact of copay coupons on pricing and welfare, I estimate a model of demand and supply using data on sales, advertising, and copayment for cholesterol-lowering drugs and perform a counterfactual analysis to simulate equilibrium pricing with copay coupons used for price
Coupon Trading and its Impacts on Consumer Purchase and
For imperfectly targeted coupons (e.g., on-pack coupons), research also compares the impact of coupons distributed through different vehicles. Raju, Dhar, and Morrison (1994) examine the relative impact of peel-off coupons, on-pack coupons, and in-pack coupons on market share, and find that on-pack coupons may lead to a higher market share than
Pricing strategy and moral hazard: Copay coupons in
Copay coupons can help to combat generic entry by lowering the costs for patients and influencing doctors’ decisions. 11 In March 2013, 62% of the 374 copay coupons found from www.internetdrugcoupons.com, a large drug coupon website, were for branded drugs with generic alternatives. 12 As many blockbuster drugs went off-patent, and few new

After a contact time of 1 h, the air system was turned on to aerate out the residual chemicals from the rooms; biological indicators and test surface coupons were retrieved for processing.
Influence of coupons on online travel reservation service
By comparing two types of coupons (dollars-off and percentage-off) with high and low price levels and their effects on customers' perception after service recovery, Lii and Lee (2012) show that customers feel that they are treated more fairly when they perceive that a coupon gives them a price reduction in terms of dollars for expensive
A study of corrosion on electrodeposited superhydrophobic
The roll-off angle was measured by the same apparatus with 25 μL deionized (DI) water and tilting cradle method. For wettability characterization after each immersion test, the coupons were first slightly washed using a hand-squeezed laboratory DI-water bottle and left to dry in room atmosphere overnight before the contact angle measurement. 2.4.
Coupon promotion and its two-stage price intervention on
Considering the effect of consumer patience, the possibility of losing coupons, and forgetting to redeem coupons, the redemption of coupons is a probabilistic event (Krishna & Zhang, 1999). Thus, we characterize it through a redemption rate η (manufacturer's coupon redemption rate) and μ (retailer's coupon redemption rate).
