Errr, 75% 66% or 50%?

So I bought Simcity 4 when it was on sale, but look at how EXCESSIVELY MISLEADING the advertising is.

Quote:
Daily Deal - SimCity™ 4 Deluxe Edition 75% off!
Announcement - Valve
17 Nov 2011
Today's Deal: Save 66% off SimCity™ 4 Deluxe Edition

Look for the deals each day on the front page of Steam. Or follow us on twitter or Facebook for instant notifications wherever you are!
Original price: 19.99

Title says: 75% off, so basically it should've been 4.99$.
Then, the text says: 66% off, so it should've been 6.59$.
I ended up paying 9.99 which is 50% off.

What gives?

On the 17th, it was 4.99 or 75% off. I know, I bought it then.

During the sale it was 9.99.

It was on sale for two different prices at two different times.

But I'd like to know where the 66% off was O,o

Doh. Doesn't look like it. All steamworks games have a note "Steam optional"

SC4 does not.

Anyway, I picked up two copies when it was on sale for $5 a few months back on steam
