'rebate' vs. 'discount'
My question today is whether the two nouns are exact synonyms and can be used interchangeably.
I realise both have several meanings; what's on my mind can be defined as 'a price reduction offered to a regular customer'.

There are two meanings:

What about, "customer discount"? :D
Thank you very much, Casiopea.
Frankly speaking, I didn't think of the 1. Partial refund meaning. And that's what makes the whole difference.
'Customer discount' is a very satisfactory choice.
