This can be covered with the existing vocabulary. See below for an example.

The only area for improvement I see is that the definition of intervals in prices and quantitative values has currently support for including endpoints via min/max, not for excluding endpoints, so we have to use

<meta itemprop="maxPrice" content="99.99">

to indicate "less than 100.

We could add maxPriceExcludes/minPriceExcludes/maxValueExcludes/minValueExcludes properties to schema.org, but I would rather recommend markup recipes as the ones proposed.
