What has happened to that great American archetype, the penny-pinching bargain shopper?

Americans were once known to love a good deal; this is the country that invented ending every price with “$.99” Add to that the US economy has been less than robust for the past six years, marked by a recession leading into a rocky, dissatisfying recovery that includes a weak housing market and 10 million people out of work.

One of the big debates regarding iBeacons, the tech that allows iOS apps to receive location-aware notifications over Bluetooth LE, is whether or not the experience will become intrusive for users. Imagine having your local grocery store’s app installed. Once the store has installed a few beacons, you could soon find yourself overcome with notifications as you walk around without ever even opening the app. You run the risk of users getting frustrated and potentially avoiding or deleting the app entirely. However, that hasn’t been the case when it comes to the iBeacons installed by inMarket in grocery stores across the country - app and ad engagement has skyrocketed since rolling out the platform.

Why Does Rude Service at Luxury Stores Make Consumers Go Back for More?

For many people, the idea of purchasing a luxury product in a high-end boutique comes with the stigma of snobbery and rude salesclerks. But when they are rejected in real life,a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research reveals that a person’s desire for brand affiliation and willingness to purchase and display the item actually increases. “Our research highlights the fact that we are profoundly attuned to social threats and are driven to buy, wear, and use products from the very people who are disrespectful to us,” write authors Morgan K. Ward (Southern Methodist University) and Darren W. Dahl (University of British Columbia). Source Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source .
