    Does this question sound natural or awkward?: "How much is the discount (for this)?"

    I've read the thread here: "How to ask for a discount.." and have learned different ways to do so. I just want to know if the following sentence is actually used or not:

    "How much is the discount (for this)?"

    Example situation:
    You see a bag you like at the store but it doesn't have a discount price tag and the store says all items are discounted.


    Is it wrong or does it sound unnatural?

    Thank you!

    I am not a teacher.

    I would say, 'How much is the discount on this?'
