The most common use of "a good deal" is to mean "An indefinite quantity or amount; a lot" (Wiktionary).

However, in your context, this is a different definition of "deal" (also in Wiktionary):

  1. A particular instance of buying or selling, a transaction
  2. Specifically, a transaction offered which is financially beneficial; a bargain.


That sounds like a bargain.
That sounds like a good price.
