Ask About English! Q15: 'discount'

Hi,

What is the meaning: 20% off discount?

Anon


Hi,

A discount is
a reduced price from the stated rate or list price, usually offered to a customer as an incentive to make a purchase. Therefore:

20% off discount means that the price now is 20% lower than the standard price

For example: if a DVD player is normally £100, 20
% off discount means that the price now is £80.

Thanks for your question.

Matt
