German word for a low priced buy of a normally higher priced article.
It's derived from 'Schnäppchen'.
Sometimes it's possible to make a 'Schnapper' in an Internet auction.
Mein neues Auto war ein echter Schnapper.
My new car was a good buy.
Different from the word "snapper", "Schnapper" is a clueless or ignorant person lacking in common sense, and little idea of what is ever really going on.
Also known as a "clueless bastard".
"He didn't even know not mix his whites and colours when doing the laundry...what a Schnapper".
"Geez, my Dad's such a Schnapper, everytime I go out drinking he believes me when I say I've been at the movies".
