    Question I hope that is helpful.

    Dear teachers,

    In a textbook published by Oxford University Press, there is an email written by a booking manager in reply to a customer's request for a discount:

    Dear __________ ,

    "We would be able to offer you a 10 % discount on the total. I hope that is helpful."

    Regards,
    __________

    What is another way to say the second sentence? Is it OK to say "I hope you're satisfied" or "I hope this could meet your expectation"? I thought it's kind of awkward to say "I hope you're satisfied" since the customer hadn't received any benefit when the letter was written.

    Could any of you help? Thanks for your reply in advance!
