About the Redesign

If you visited this site prior to September 15th, 2018, you've no doubt noticed that I've since launched a complete redesign of the website.

If you're not happy with the new design, I sincerely apologize. I would have preferred to keep the old desktop design, but considering the majority of my site's users are now accessing the site from small-screen, touch-enabled, mobile devices, and considering Google is now penalizing websites for not being mobile/thumb friendly, I was left with no choice but to switch to a responsive, mobile-first design.

The good news is that now that I have combined the three separate versions of the site (mobile, desktop, and ad-free member) into a single design, this will free up a ton of my time for working to make the mobile-optimized calculators more desktop/laptop friendly. In fact, some of the redesigned calculators already offer a desktop-optimized form that becomes visible when you increase the width setting of the calculator (within the "Calculator Preferences" expandable panel).

Thank you in advance for your help and patience as I work to improve the redesign.

Percent Off Calculator

This discount calculator will calculate the sales price given the original selling price and the percentage markdown. Plus, unlike other discount calculators, this discount calculator includes an option for including sales tax in the calculations. The $ecret tab includes the answer to How 20% Off can cost you 100%.

Discount savings:

This is the total of the pretax savings plus the sales tax savings. But remember, the savings calculated by the percent off calculator is only a savings if you've predetermined that the value of having the sale item is worth more than the value of something else the same amount of money could have bought.

If you would like to save the current entries to the secure database, tap or click on the Data tab, select "New Data Record", give the data record a name, then tap or click the Save button. To save changes to previously saved entries, simply tap the Save button. Please select and "Clear" any data records you no longer need.
