That is not fair. You omitted the key words: "up to".

I wish FW would somehow differenciate these promos from real daily deals. Most people come to Today's Best Deal page expecting to real deals based on greens or hits, not some 'upto 70% off' paid deal like this one.

I agree, FW seems to be in bed with 6pm.

It started out based on green votes for several deals, which were then promoted to Best Deals.
After we posted a few of them, we could easily see that they were getting more hits than any other deals... by a lot
These are not paid placements, and there is absolutely no direct profit motive to posting these in Best Deals; however, we can easily look at the amount of sales generated from these deals & determine that many people are finding things that they want to buy, and are not simply tricked by a large number only to leave disappointed.
Armed with this knowledge, we will often look at the latest sales posted on the 6PM home page as highlighted in this screenshot
As you may notice, not every sale that appears on the home page will make it as a Best Deal. This is because we typically use real empirical data to predict which deals are likely to perform well based on the actual performance of one or more past deals.
As Best Deals editors, we are given no directives or incentives to select any particular deals, or deals from any particular source. We simply post what we believe will work based on the information we have.
As long as these deals continue to reign among the top performing deals in the Best Deals section, we will most likely continue to post them.
