"For Sale" vs "On Sale"

Post by ICC_yuri » Fri Oct 21, 2011 6:10 am

When Korean watches “for sale” sign, they assume it is discount product. But the real meaning is the products are selling in the store. They mark “On sale” for real discount stuff or “20~30% off”. I was confused when I saw the sign. Here is two questions that makes me confuse.
1.All Computers at Samsung will be 20% off the original price for only three days.
2.All employees are eligible to receive a bus pass which will give you a 50% discount on the regular.
What are differences of these two answers? Does anyone can help me?

You are confusing me. I quess that "On sale" means that an owner wants to sell something and "For sale" means that the owner wants to sell something at a discouted price. *^.~*

For your question, I guess that both sentences mean that someone can buy something at a discounted price. ( =in a price reduction of...) *^.~*
