das Schnäppchen

If you like going shopping, this is definitely a must have word for you, because it means:

the bargain

It’s based on the verb schnappen which means something like to snatch (to snap and grab) and the -chen makes it sound cute and adorable. Though even a car can be a Schnäppchen and you’ll also see the word used a LOT in ads.

  • 5 Euro für dieses Kleid… in echtes Schnäppchen.
  • 5 Euro for this dress… a real bargain.
