**Original citation.** van Dijk, E., van Kleef, G.A., Steinel, W., & van Beest, I. (2008). A social functional approach to emotions in bargaining: When communicating anger pays and when it backfires. *Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 94*(4), 600-614. **Target of replication.** In this experiment, the original authors manipulated both the consequences of rejection and the communicated emotions of the recipient to “see whether, if the consequences of rejection were low, participants would make lower offers to the angry recipient than to the happy recipient” (van Dijk et al., 2008). We particularly focus the original authors' finding that participants offered significantly fewer chips to angry recipients than happy recipients in low consequence situations, F(1,99) = 16.62, p < 0.0001. **A priori replication criteria.** We planned to conduct a 2 (recipients emotion: happy or angry) x 2 (consequences of rejection: no money or 10% reduction) between subjects ANOVA on the perceived anger ratings. We expected that participants in the angry recipient condition would perceive the recipient to be more angry than those participants in the happy recipient condition. A second manipulation check was planned to be conducted on perceived happiness ratings and a final manipulation check was planned to be performed on the consequences of rejection.
