    No big deal means 'not important'.

    'A big deal' is something important.

    I'm only five minutes late - don't make a big deal out of it.
    Ed's party is going to be a really big deal. Everyone's going.
    I lost my book, but it's no big deal - I'll buy a new one.

    You can also say 'big deal' in a sarcastic way to show that you think something isn't very good, important or interesting.

    I got a 'b' in my test.
    Big deal! Who cares?

    Hope this helps,

    Brian
