The 'Original Price / RRP' needs to be updated.

Feedback

Original Price / RRP implies that the user should mention, as stated, the original price instead of the current retail price so where does that leave the community? In somewhat of confusion.

The LD member HHK made a great point about it, just as Dread did in the past too about it.

Latest Deals should fix this issue so that we can focus on listing the Current Retail Price than the Original Retail Price.

Let's for example bring up the Sony PlayStation 4 (Slim models - £199.99ish for Original models). The Original Retail Price was £349.99 but now the Current Retail Price is around £249.99 so considering LD strictly says 'Original Price / RRP' it's not clear which price to include in said box.

My reading of this was always Original Price OR RRP - Recommended Retail Price so in the PS4 example I would use £250 as thats what you would normally be expected to pay. If you get this for £200 then you are saving £50. Some retailers though will still use the £350 to imply you are saving £150. I must admit whenever I am checking into a bargain I always try to use BAP - Best Amazon price as they sell just about anything and are a good starting point! (On a technical nerdy point I use a Google Chrome extension so I can just highlight right click and select AmazonUK and go straight to the item- save lots of time)

Yes, there's that. The or in 'Original Price / RRP' makes a bit of a difficult decision as to which price one should list. It should come down to only one, and that should be the current retail price over the original retail price.
