Different words for “as part of” with the same meaning in this sentence?

Postby Dragonknight » Mon Jan 29, 2018 4:29 pm UTC

I have to spin "as part of" text line but the best I could think are "Included in and Within"… Know of any other words that could replace "as part of" and sentence would still make sense? Do you think that Included and Within can serve as a replacement to "as part of" in this sentence?

Sentence example: As part of our new store opening we are giving away a limited discount

"Related to," "a cousin/relative of," "a component of?" Some suggestions re: replacing, "as part of."

Dislikes "included in" and "within" there. Suggests "To celebrate our new store opening, we are giving away a limited discount." Alternatively, "Due to our new store opening, we are giving away a limited discount."
Changes its form depending on the observer.

"Because of our new store opening we are offering a limited discount."

"As a function of our new store opening we are offering a limited discount."

"As part of the deal of our new store opening we are offering a limited discount."

By far the best option here, at least for the example sentence. While it doesn't have the exact same literal meaning of "as part of", it is more natural and better captures what is actually meant.
