    discount ... to

    The following in red is confusing.

    A fast food company might -- and most do -- bundle several complementary parts of a meal together into a single purchase. The classic example is the hamburger, chips and drink; usually these are priced at a discount of 50p~1 pound to the price of the individual items.

    Is it saying "these (as a bundle or individually?) are 50p~1 pound discounted from the price of the three-item-bundle"? I don't know.

    Thank you.

    Re: discount ... to

    If you buy the three items together, as a package/'bundle', you will pay 50p - 1 less than if you bought the three items separately. For example:

    Hamburger - 2
    Chips -1.50
    Drink - 1.50
    TOTAL - 5

    Hamburger, chips and drink offer - 4
