    Same deal as before.

    Hello.

    Can I say 'The same deal as before' or 'the' have to be dropped?

    Thanks, Alex.

    Not a teacher only a native.

    'The same deal as before' sounds fine to me. In informal conversations, when replying to someone, or to save time, 'the' might be dropped (with 'please' added for politeness if necessary).

    For example: 'I want the same deal as before'.

    Or, 'Same deal as before, please'.

    It depends on the context of the conversation.
