Cut a deal - English Phrase

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?
