    What is the Difference Between Deal, Discount and Offer?

    I was writing an article today about deals ( or discounts) on eBooks. I do have an idea about the meaning of deal, discount and offer, but I do not know the exact meaning and the exact difference between these words. I also heard 'discount offer' together. Suppose, if there is a 25% discount on an eBook, then it is not a deal!? or it can be a deal!? Then it can also be the offer! What is the exact meaning of these three words? And how we should use them in different situations?

    I'll just try explaining you roughly ...  For example , If you went to a shop for buying something (say a dress ) .
    If the Dealer accepts to sell you an item for lesser than the its original price , then he has given you a Discount .
    "Discounts" "buy one get one " "half rates" and so on are examples of offers that a shopkeeper provides you to make a deal with you. If you like any of those offers , then you can make a deal ( that is purchase something from him ) .
    You can just ignore my answer if you are confused
