What brands fit into our own life fantasy? = Holbrook & Hirschman’s on experiential aspects. Criticism: Describe relationships, but how do they transform and change over time?

Investigate the use of loyalty card among your friends. •  Do they perceive to be loyal to that specific firm if they have their loyalty card? •  Do they feel that they have a relationship with a specific firm if they have their card in their wallet? •  On a more general level, can companies have relationships with their customers and in the end create loyal customers?

I am a student, and therefore don’t have that much money… but I feel smart when I use my member card at those places.”
  27. 27. Research: Loyalty Cards Arranged marriage: (Satisfaction….or?) “”When I met my husband he introduced me to which toothpaste brand to use, which was of course Pepsodent, so I started using Pepsodent toothpaste and I have never gone back!”
