a good value

a good value

1. Literally, that which has a high quality, quantity, or worth but is offered at a low or reasonable price; a bargain. $1.50 for a sirloin steak? What a good value! Are you sure that car's a good value? It's pretty old and not exactly cheap! The bill for lunch only came to $17? That's a good value, I'd say.
2. An affable, charismatic, or entertaining person. Primarily heard in Australia. John's a good value, he's so much fun to have at parties. I'm very fond of Tom, he's just a good value all around. Our date was fine—Joe's a good value, we just don't have any chemistry.
