Shop.ca get max discount

I need to make a $600 purchase now, it is a good price, (same as amazon, couldn't find anywhere cheaper) what is my best option to lower down the price to the max?

1) I found a $100 off $500 on *****, however i noticed the coupon is applied after tax
2) GCR or ebates 20% cb

Is there anything i missed?
From the above 2 which is a better and more secure option?

Thanks

Really? This calculation took 5 seconds.

Option 1 Option 2
Cost 600.00 600.00
GST 1.05 1.05
Price 630.00 630.00
Coupon (100.00)
Cashback 20% (126.00)

Final Price $530.00 (Coupon) $504.00 (Cash Back)

Option 2 will save you $26, assuming 5% GST.

Is the cashback after tax?
What are my chances that the cb does not post and I have to fight for it?

If the purchase meets the cashback conditions there's no reason you shouldn't get it.
