    Is this phrase commonly used?
  2. BONJOURMONAMOUR Senior Member

    No, hardly ever!

    We would say thanks a million

    I'd say it's relatively common in AE. There's also Thanks a lot/a bunch/a million/etc.

    It's not common in British English.

    Ugh? Can we define common?

    I'm from Atlanta, GA, where a neutral, cosmopolitan form of AE is spoken, and thanks a ton/lot sound completely natural and common.

    Thanks a million also sounds natural, but is less common around here.
