Article Type: Research paper

Publisher: North American Business Press


The authors conduct a meta-analysis of studies on coupons and their effects on buyer behavior. Extant
research on related topics is vague on measures applied, contextual and outcome constructs. This article,
in contrast, offers academics a better grasp on some of the problem areas and provides avenues for future
research. Specifically, we focus on effects of 1) Coupon attitudes and coupon knowledge on coupon use;
2) Manufacturers’ coupons on moderating effect between coupon perception and behavior towards
coupon; and 3) Studies using objective outcomes on the relation between the perception towards coupons
and behavior towards coupons.
