What does "a good deal" mean?

A: The dinner special is only $6.99.

B: That sounds like a good deal.

Is it true that this would be the meaning?

It sounds like an economical choice.

Are there some suitable alternatives for it??


The most common use of "a good deal" is to mean "An indefinite quantity or amount; a lot" (Wiktionary).

However, in your context, this is a different definition of "deal" (also in Wiktionary):

  1. A particular instance of buying or selling, a transaction
  2. Specifically, a transaction offered which is financially beneficial; a bargain.


That sounds like a bargain.
That sounds like a good price.
