Thanks for the reply and sorry I didn't make myself clearer.

I want the 25% off discount to apply even if they order more than one item.

However, on a few of our items, we have quantity discounts (not all of our 
items).  So, for those items, we might discount 20% if they order more than 
10 items, say.

But for the special group of people who get a global 25% off discount, I 
don't want them to get a 20% quantity discount AND a 25% discount.  And 
that's what's happening when I use the [discount ALL_ITEMS]$s * 
.75[/discount] tag.

I've definitely read and reread the documentation, including 
http://www.interchange.rtfm.info/icdocs/tags/discount.html and 

but I don't know how to tell it to:

Apply the global 25% off discount for a special group (not with special IC 
logins, just using an Apache name/password combo) but don't apply quantity 
pricing discount for this group as well.  I was wondering if I could at the 
same time I checked for this group apply some code --I used an affiliate 
check command like so:

[seti affiliate_id][data session source][/seti]
[if scratch affiliate_id eq "special-group"]
[discount ALL_ITEMS]$s * .75[/discount]

Could I override the commonadjust for them, or do something else here?

Thanks in advance.
