If I do a title search in Hot Deals for generator, I get articles whose title includes 'generation'.

Is this a bug?

No! It's a 'feature'! Seriously, though, it could be the software trying to be flexible. The Mods may know - or they can find out...

Fatwallet staff, any ideas?

I would say that's probably working as intended. I'll do some checking into it.

Thanks MVP9596.
My personal datapoint is: it's not working as intended. I want to look up 'generators' (reasonable, given what we just faced w/ Sandy). Why should I get back results that include 'generation'?
If this is due to search stemming, and if there's a way to turn off stemming, would be great if you could document it.
Thanks again!
