Hello :)


1) Last but not least would be the option to prepay a membership for a much lower price.

2) Last but not least, there would be the option to prepay a membership for a much lower price.


I just wonder if "last but not least" can be used as a noun - see the first sentence. Or only the second one is correct?

IMHO "option" is the noun, not "last but not least."

Ok, is it possible to use both sentences?

Just in case you guys are thinking of using the phrase "last but not least" - be aware that it's become a cliche. In other words: it's been said so much it doesn't have any meaning any more.

It's a really good phrase to know because you'll hear it said often. My advice would be not to use it yourself though.
