Generally, discounting prices increases unit sales but decreases profit margins. If presenting a discount more attractively, will profits increase with sales? We tested discounts presented to customers in euros or percentages at three regular price levels (low, medium, or high). Store visitors were surveyed to determine the discount that would make a promoted product attractive to them. Results align with previous literature: the normal (or regular) price influences the discount attractiveness when the discount is presented in absolute (monetary) terms. However, percentage discounts were perceived similarly between price levels. The amount saved was not only considered: the discount attractiveness was also compared to some reference discount. Second: relative and absolute promotions’ references differ: the evaluations in absolute terms led to higher attractive discount levels.
