To describe the extent and nature of price discounts on alcohol in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. An observational survey in stores licensed for off-sales in December 2010 to January 2011. A total of 2018 price discounts in 29 stores led to a median saving of 25% and required a median purchase of 20 standard UK alcohol units. Median price per standard unit was 0.92 pound (US$1.49; euro1.05) before discount and 0.68 pound (US$1.10; euro0.78) after discount. Restriction of price discounting should be considered as a public health policy.
