    Re: Difference between saying: Maybe I can get you tickets for cheaper. VS Maybe I

    They are both incorrect.

    'Maybe I can get you tickets for less.'

    'Maybe I can get you tickets cheaper.'

    I think you mean, maybe I can get you cheaper tickets.

    That has a different meaning.

    Suppose my friend says 'I believe tickets cost 10'.

    I say 'Maybe I can get you tickets for less (than that)'. Or

    'Maybe I can get you tickets cheaper (than that)'.

    If I say 'Maybe I can get you cheaper tickets', I mean '...but they will be further back/higher up/behind a pillar etc'.
