I phoned the toll free SCOP number and asked them about the tax.

No tax on under $10 because the policy states "free" and not a price deduction. Therefore anything over $10 using the code will have tax of the regular price because it's "$10 off".

If you used a coupon that said "save $5" and the product cost $5, the item would be $0 but tax would still apply if the item is taxable.
The manager called back and apologized and said they would retrain all the front end staff about SCOP.

Yay!

Does anyone know if the LCBO follows SCOP? I tried once and they replied that they do not follow it and just corrected the price. TIA.

Nope. Scanner Price Accuracy Code.

And why would they join SCOP? <sarcasm>After all, if you don't like how they do business you can always switch to the competition (assuming all you drink is cheap wine and beer.)</sarcasm>
