    Post For, At ... Off, Less

    Suppose a book, originally $50, is now on sale and $45. Then someone bought the book:

    "He bought the book for 10% off."
    "He bought the book at 10% off."
    "He bought the book for 10% less."
    "He bought the book at 10% less."
    "He bought the book for 5 dollars off."
    "He bought the book at 5 dollars off."
    "He bought the book for 5 dollars less."
    "He bought the book at 5 dollars less."


    Are some of them wrong?
