[Sobeys] sobeys drink after coupon 99c

sobeys got 2.99 $, one box of drinks on the flyer.
there are many boxes with coupon Save2$. so basicly you can first buy one box, put it in the car, then go back to grab another one with coupon.

note: coupon is in the middle of the carbon box.

The flyer shows $2.99 for 12 pack of Pepsi or Coke.
What he's saying is there is a $2 coupon off inside the box of the same pack.

I think it's cryptic code. It may be directions to earth for an alien civilization in a far away galaxy. Stock up on supplies folks. The aliens are coming to take over earth.

Well, if true, that's a very good deal!

I don't think pepsi or coke has $2 coupons? I haven't seen any around. I think OP means Canada Dry. Those have coupons for Canada Dry or Fanta drinks. I think it's also good for C-plus. However, the C-plus doesn't have the $2 coupons, so it's game over if you buy it.

In Ontario, Sobeys is charging $2.99 plus tax FIRST then taking the two dollars off! That means you are paying $1.39 ($1.40 rounded up with no penny rule) instead of paying 99 cents plus tax = $1.12 ($1.10 rounded down on no penny rule)
That's why I wish they'd kindly take the two dollars off FIRST, then charge the 99 cents plus tax.
Oh well. Still a great deal!
I hope Loblaws offers $2.99 on their next No Tax day! That'll make it 99 cents for 12 cans!!! ( a dollar on the no penny rule, respectfully)

Shoppers Drug Mart's system does that too. Even if the coupon terms says it includes tax, they can't do anything.

If the coupon is reimbursable (e.g. the distributor pays the vendor) then it comes off after-tax. Same treatment as if you were to use a gift card/certificate. $10 x 1.13 = $11.30 - $1 = $10.30

If the coupon is non-reimburable (e.g. Vendor is offering a certain amount off, such as "Save 10% off your purchase with this coupon") then the amount is deducted before tax. $10 - $1 = $9 x 1.13 = $10.17

It's the way it's always been, not sure why everybody acts surprised by this.

I find a good way of looking at it is that in the case of a vendor coupon, the vendor is essentially putting the item on sale, just to people who have the coupon rather than the general public. They're the vendor, they can set whatever price they want. Therefore it is just like the item is on sale, and you pay taxes on the "sale" price.

In the case of a manufacturer coupon, the vendor isn't doing anything different from normal. The only difference is that the manufacturer is agreeing to pay $2 (or whatever) of your tab for you, so it comes off after-tax, just like if it was a $2 prepaid credit card that can only be used for that item.
