The Discount Card is a rare Hardmode accessory that, when equipped, causes item prices in NPC inventories to be discounted by 1/5 (20%). The discount also applies to reforge costs. It has a (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 1/1000 (0.1%) / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 1/2000 (0.05%) chance to be dropped by pirates (except Parrots) during Pirate Invasions, with a (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 1/250 (0.4%) / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 1/500 (0.2%) chance from the Pirate Captain. It also has a 1/15 (6.67%) chance to be dropped by the Flying Dutchman(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

The card must be equipped before talking to an NPC in order to trigger discounts.

  • This item is quite rare. It takes an average of 16–17 complete Pirate Invasions before it drops.
  • The discount does not stack with the Greedy Ring's discount.
  • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Un-equipping the Discount Card with an NPC's shop window open will not cancel the discount until the shop window is closed. However, this does not apply to reforging; un-equipping the Discount Card or its upgrades will instantly affect reforge prices.
  • The effect of the Discount Card multiplicatively stacks with the effects of NPC happiness(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), effectively allowing the player to buy items at up to 40% off.
  • In Celebrationmk10(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) worlds, the Discount Card can be purchased from the Princess for 5 GC after a Pirate Invasion has been defeated.


  • Farming for a Lucky Coin/Discount Card/Gold Ring is most efficient from Flying Dutchmen(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), rather than from common pirates. After getting event progress to 50%, one can ensure 10 Flying Dutchmen per event by getting high enough above the ground (using a small platform or flying mount), but not too high, so that spawned enemies will be in the "Active Rectangle" and will despawn after 12.5 seconds, and then spawn again. Using this method, only Flying Dutchmen and Parrots can reach the player. Parrots can be killed safely as they do not count towards event progress.


  • Desktop 1.4.4:
    • Drop rates doubled outright. The increased drop rate from Pirate Captains has also been doubled.
    • Flying Dutchman now has a substantially increased chance of dropping this item, with a 1/15 chance.
  • Desktop Can now be purchased from the Princess in Celebrationmk10 worlds.
  • Desktop Fixed a bug that allowed the player to swap out the Discount Card when shopping but keep the same prices.
