    'rebate' vs. 'discount'

    Greetings, :)

    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'.

    Regards

    There are two meanings:

    After the amount has been paid
    1. Partial refund

    Before the amount has been paid
    2. Deduction from a sum to be paid ~ discount

    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.

    You're welcome.

    Customer discount is what I like to hear.
