    for 10 percent off any other item

    That T-shirt is out of stock, but we’ll give you a voucher for 10 percent off any other item in the store.
    Would you please tell me what the underlined phrase mean?
    Really thanks

    When the person addressed pays for the next item s/he buys in the store, s/he will hand over the voucher and receive a 10% discount.

    I think I have to add 'for' at the place below:

    Am I wrong?

    Yes, you are wrong.

    I am giving you 10% off your next purchase.
    I got 10% off my new car.
    We will give you 10% off anything you buy today.
