How to figure your Savings Percentage

to get your total savings on a deal:

add together all your original price
add together your oop
subtract oop from original
equals amount saved

then divide amount saved by original price
move decimal over two spots
viola!
your savings percentage!

Amy! Thanks for this! I've been doing it backwards and spending too much time on it! This makes it easier :)

What is oop?

Amy said...

oop = Out Of Pocket

Out Of Pocket is the actual amount you had to pay to the store, not what the original amount before coupons/sales.
