Have we become a nation of bargin hunters? Or are there other factors at work?

I have been checking out how retailers get shoppers to their stores. Sales, discounts and coupons..... Go to the mall and look into a store without a sale going on and you'll see low foot traffic and very little sales. Go to the same store with a sale going on and you'll see shoppers acting like sharks with blood in the water.

Checking my site logs and there are lots of searches for coupon codes, discounts, etc...

Where are the impluse buyers? Where are the money is no object shoppers? Big Spenders!? Are they even on the net?

Are ya'll bargin hunters, value seekers, coupon hunters or big spenders?
