1 Answer 1


"to rent a house with a 20% discount". TFD

To reduce in quantity or value: discount a price.

discount and off are redundant

  • Noted with thanks, ibf! Then how about the expressions D, E, and F?(In case the word 'discount' is not preferred) Do they sound natural to native speakers?

  • Note that D sounds like the price a renter would pay to the landlord while E sounds like the amount a landlord would pay to a rental agent.
