I’m seeing this problem as well. One additional thing if I navigate into the detail products page the special price is applied and show. So far digging into code it appears that
final_price is not set on the front page but is set on the product detail page. Can @sccr410 and @unobtrusivebooth confirm what you are seeing on the products detail page.
