    credit

    "Credit" is one of the most difficult words for me. It seems to have so various meanings in various contexts. What does it mean in the following context?

    Steve's proclivity for responding to e-mails, and the reputation that came with that, made his inbox a prominent target for customers looking to overstep rows of supervisors to get broken computers replaced and generous credit for service outages.

    Thank you.

    Re: credit

    If you are paying for a service, say for your internet service, and there is an outage, then it is reasonable to not have to pay for the service for the time that it was not available.

    So if the service was off for 2 days, I would expect my bill to be reduced by 2 days' worth of dollars. That would be a credit (to my account) for the service outage.
