So at the supermarket the other day I see some meat marked down due to being close to the use by date. Original price was $9.76 and it is now $5.51. The sticker with the price drop describes it as being 33% off. That doesn't work out to 33% as it is around a dollar lower than the calculations but okay if they want to underestimate the saving that's fine. The tray of meat next to it was also marked down to $5.51 and noted as being 33% off. However the original price was around $8.50. Huh? You can't take two different figures and drop them both down to $5.51 and accurately claim the same discount on both. I understand that they are working in bulk and approximations but it still looked a little odd with the two sitting right next to each other.
For the record, I went with the one with the best price per kilo and best discount. :)
