Not from Quebec but I believe SCOP doesn't exist there as it is actually law and all retailers must follow it. I think the rules are fairly close to what we have in Ontario though, in terms of free and $10 off items over $10.
It is not Law, it is a Code of Practice compiled by a number of businesses, including the retail Council of Canada. Once a business becomes a signatory to the "Code" then they must follow the "Code".

In Quebec it's the law.

^^^^^ I reread the original post by Nibbler2012 and I can see now that he/she was probably inferring that "actually Law" was referencing Quebec Legislation. Mea Culpa and thank you for the clarification.

Anyone good at math? Check if scop was done accurately. I bought a Wok at Loblaws. Shelf price was 19.97 but scanned 32.99.

Almoooooost, but they input the $10 SCOP as a coupon instead of adjusting the item price down by $10, so you still paid HST on the $10 deducted. I don't think that is correct.

Yes, that is correct (except for one detail).

- They refunded you the price of $32.99 plus tax.
- For inventory purposes, they must charge you for the wok at the correct price of $19.97 plus tax.
- You were given the maximum amount of $10.00 off of the correct price.
- However, they forgot to press the tax key along with the 33 code (SCOP code on the register) on the $10.00.

You're just missing a little bit of taxes owed to you. At least that's how we were trained, to include tax with SCOP on a taxable item.

Indeed I meant Quebec Legislation...and on another note, he/she should be replaced with 'they' nowadays.

^^^^^ Are you self-identifying???
