I have been hearing the expression "bang for you buck" many times a day and I find myself distracted when I or others use it. In an effort to be an attentive listener, what is a good alternative succinct phrase that has roughly the same meaning?

There is a commonly used expression in business, return on investment often abbreviated ROI
You can use the simple price/performance ratio.
"By buying product A you receive more bang for your buck!"
"Product A has better price/performance ratio."
I will take the meaning going a slightly different way...
"One dollar me love you long time"
More effective. This works whether the context is economic or not. While "buck" in this sense probably means "dollar," the expression is often used in non-economic contexts where ROI, cost performance, and other domain-specific terms may be unfamiliar.
