Subjective age has been an important construct in studies of older consumers. The present study builds upon previous research by providing theory-based consumer behavior consequences of subjective age. Using both empirical and humanistic designs, the study examines the influence of subjective age on various old age–appropriate consumer behaviors, interest in age-segmented stimuli (senior discounts), and responses to old-age stereotypes in advertisements. The study findings suggest implications for theory and practice. Directions for future research are also suggested.
