Greetings, :)

My question today is whether the two nouns are exact synonyms and can be used interchangeably.

I realise both have several meanings; what's on my mind can be defined as 'a price reduction offered to a regular customer'.

There are two meanings:

After the amount has been paid
1. Partial refund

Before the amount has been paid
2. Deduction from a sum to be paid ~ discount :up:

What about, "customer discount"? :D

Thank you very much, Casiopea.

Frankly speaking, I didn't think of the 1. Partial refund meaning. And that's what makes the whole difference.

'Customer discount' is a very satisfactory choice.
