You pay hst on the whole 3.99 then 3 dollars off makes it about 1.51 per bulb after taxes. Limit 5 coupons per transaction.

I was looking for LED's on Friday and I found that any enerstar bulbs has shot up in price to $18- $22 for a two pack. I even checked Canadian Tire and found to best deal was $6.99 for a single bulb.

I suppose the retailers are now adjusting to the coupons and upping the price to take advantage. These to do not have the enerstar logo and are not eligible. Even if they did have the logo, this is a four-pack which is eligible for the $8 coupon so 28-8= $20 or $5 per bulb.

At $7 minus $3 for the coupon that's the same price for a LED bulb at Dollarama everyday. And they often have brand name bulbs like Philips.

Bad move by other retailers if they keep this up.

not to mention it's patently illegal and they could be charged with price manipulation, especially since it's artificially raising prices due to a eco-coupon.

Interesting. I didn't know this.

I guess the only questions are how to prove what echotango contends and if the government would act against the retailers doing this.

the first part is easy, just compare prices over time compared to cost, but the second is more difficult, as the gov't is not hiring to replace terminations and retirees and many departments are stretched to the bone.

I would also imagine businesses are massively abusing this manpower shortage, such as in this case.

If the gov't is/becomes aware of this happening perhaps and easier step would be to put a "Maximum $4 bulb regular price" on the coupon.

Or if they really wanted to stick it to retailers discontinue these eco-coupons and have a lot of their business flood to Dollarama.

Dollarama will adjust as well.
How? They'd have to raise prices above $4 which they don't do (they just raised prices from $3 to $4).

The only other thing they could do is stop carrying LEDs...which wouldn't make any sense.
