    it's supposed to, it was supposed to

    I read this sentence in a book about everyday English of American teenagers:

    (Amy and Susan are in a clothes shop)

    Amy: How much is it?

    Susan: It's supposed to be 90 dollars, but it's 65 dollars because it's on sale. I'm getting it.

    I thought Susan should say 'It was supposed to be...'. Am I right?

    Thank you very much.
