* 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}}.

* The ''RollerCoasterTycoon'' series had an inversion as you could give out vouchers for free rides on a certain ride, free food or drink, half-price/free entrance to the park. It costs money to run the marketing campaigns but it entices a lot more guests to visit, useful if the scenario required a certain amount of guests.
