Studies in restaurants show that the tips left by customers who pay their bill in cash tend to be larger when the bill is presented on a tray that bears a credit-card logo. Consumer psychologists hypothesize that simply seeing a credit-card logo makes many credit-card holders willing to spend more because it reminds them that their spending power exceeds
the cash they have immediately available.
Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the psychologists’ interpretation of the studies?
B. Patrons who are under financial pressure from their credit-card obligations tend to tip less when presented with a restaurant bill on a tray with credit-card logo than when the tray has no logo.
makes the most sense....if it has effect of greater spending power because their CC limit allows them too but what if you're maxed out your CC - the CC logo reminds you of the money you owe..
