Earlier we were taught that gratis means "free", which is essentially true, but gratis is actually more commonly used in a context like "buy 2, get 1 free". It's for when something is free on a condition. kostenlos is free in the literal sense of "without cost" so it may be what you would use when getting stuff for free with no other conditions
Is there a difference between 'kostenlos' and 'gratis' ? I'm guessing kostenlos means free of charge,while gratis means something like 'buy two,one free',since that's how we use 'gratis' in Croatian. Kostenlos=no payment Gratis= For example,pay 2,get one free/extra Is that right?
Kostenlos is "complimentary" or "free of charge". Priceless implies that something goes beyond a price tag. It's precious for reasons other than its monetary value. The word for that is "unbezahlbar". So if you were talking to a friend or a family member and wanted to give them a compliment, you would say something like: "Du bist unbezahlbar."
