front page deals - percentage off is wrong.

On the front page deals, there is often a "percentage off" shown next to the price. This looks like it is being calculated incorrectly.

For instance the Lowes giftcard deal at Staples ($100 for $90) shows as 90% off.

The iPad deals claim 70% off, but i think it should be 30%.

Hi pjdavep Smilie

I want to look into this for you, but I'm not sure where you are seeing a percent off? Percent off is not usually something we add when we promote a deal to the Front Page of the site.. we normally just enter the price of the item(s).

Could you maybe provide a screenshot of what you are seeing?

Thank you so much,

Hey, pjdavep! Thanks for letting us know. It was a limited test that the product team released, which didn't function properly.
