* Another Creator/BioWare example: If you hand the rakghoul serum over to the kindly doctor running the free clinic instead of the crime boss, the doctor gives you a discount at his shop. Now, seeing that you have low hit points at this juncture and can't self-heal, this is more useful than it looks, especially if you can shake down the inexhaustable Pazaak shark in the Lower City.

* ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' has the valuable UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} Sale item, which reduces the prices of all items in shops for the rest of that playthrough. Strangely, the Steam Sale itself can appear in shops.
** The remake, ''The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth'', adds a variation in the form of the consumable Credit Card; using this item in a shop (or [[Main/CastFromHitPoints Devil Room]]!) allows you to grab every item in the room for free.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' merchants occasionally offer discounts for helping them out. In Goodsprings, the starting town in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', you can get a discount from the bartender for fixing her radio.
** This is the purpose of the Barter skill in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series. It also allows you to buy from vendors at closer to cost as well as sell items to them at closer to their true worth. It can also be used in speech challenges when bribing an NPC or getting them to part with information for less than they'd normally charge you.

It can also be used in speech challenges when bribing an NPC or getting them to part with information for less than they'd normally charge you. ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' lacks skill scores, and so bases both directly off the Charisma stat and your rank in the Cap Collector perk.

* Some ''Franchise/{{Tales|Series}}'' series games feature consumables that reduce prices next time you shop; while others have a "shop rating" score (either universal or individual to each shop) that goes up as you do business. A higher shop rating increases your discount, representing either a "frequent customer" discount or the party getting better at haggling.

* In ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars]]'', Hachi and Colin's abilities involve purchasing units at a discount. Unfortunately for Colin, you get what you pay for; his units have decreased attack. Hachi's units don't have these penalties, but his discounts aren't as deep as Colin's, though his power can make them MUCH cheaper. They're both considered a {{Gamebreaker}}.

** Kanbei's ability is the inverse, where he pays more for his units in exchange for better attack, essentially an inverse of Colin's ability.
