How can you use “discount” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • As the discount increases above 4.5¢, the postal service falls below breakeven and will have to make up the losses with a price increase for all mailers, both those who are now presorting and those who have not thus far been affected.

  • One can easily increase the discount from zero and, for each discount level, calculate several figures: (1) the total revenue lost by the postal service, which is simply equal to the discount level multiplied by the presort volume; (2) the total cost incurred by mailers or by mailing organizations, which is the area under the supply curve; and (3) the total savings of the postal service because it does not have to do the sorting and processing, which is the area under the cost curve.

  • The way to think of the above curves is to begin with a discount, go over to the supply curve to get a volume, and then go up to the postal service cost curve to see how much the postal service saved on the last few pieces that converted to presort.

  • The discount price of Angela's Ashes is $10.
