Cut a deal


If you CUT A DEAL, you make an arrangement.


This was originally just a US expression but it is one that many Brits also use, even old ones like me 🙂

It is INFORMAL language


  • After hours of negotiation, we were able to cut a deal.
  • His lawyer cut a deal with the prosecutor and kept him out of jail.

Who have you cut a deal with recently?
