Yes that's an offer. And do certainly be used to make offers. Other examples that include the word do. Do you want to go to the soccer game tonight? Do you want fries with your pizza? Do you want to learn how you can save 20% off your order?

thank you for your response but i searched the internet and found that we can make offers only using modals like(can-could-would-.....) so i am really confused about that i know that it is an offer but is it correct grammatically? i want a rule or something to convince my friend.WHO TELLS ME THAT YOU CANT MAKE AN OFFER USING DO.

I see your point. I guess above sentences with Do are asking what opponent thinks, as much as speaker wants to include the meaning of "offering". Only the sentence I can think of at the moment with Do is... 'Do you want me to do ....?' sentence. like, Do you want me to bring a glass of milk for you?

Hi there again, I think it depending on the situation. It's not you cannot use DO to offer something but sounds casual. Even if "Do " sentence is grammatically correct it won't be suitable using it if you are serving costumers at work. By the way, I have found the web page. It doesn't explain a lot but hope it helps you a bit. I have found web page.
