Retailers’ Holiday Strategy Doesn’t Have to Be “Discount Everything”

Harvard Business Review

Analysts attribute this more than 300% increase to widespread discounting by retailers. As a result, customers have been conditioned to expect discounts. In addition to satisfying consumers’ discount desires, retailers have their own agenda to further lower prices. With roughly two months of holiday discounting, it’s confusing to know exactly when to buy. Employ Step Discounts. Instead of heaping on an extra discount (e.g.,

Math Anxiety Affects Consumer Preferences for Discounts

Harvard Business Review

Case Study: Escaping the Discount Trap

Harvard Business Review

Augusto saw discounting as a sinkhole — just like the ones that opened up in roads all over Brazil during the rainy season, trapping cars and their drivers. For years, our sales reps have given bigger and bigger discounts to sell more products, and our prices and margins have dropped steadily.

Why Women Should Ask Auto-Repair Shops for Discounts

Harvard Business Review

Shops may be caught off guard when women ask for discounts on car repairs, the researchers say. Women who called auto-repair shops to inquire about getting a new radiator were quoted prices that averaged 6% higher than those offered to men, according to an experiment led by Meghan Busse of the Kellogg School at Northwestern University. Yet female callers who requested a price reduction were successful about 35% of the time, compared with just 25% for men.
