Sobey's Iced Tea Receipt - Penny for my thoughts

Sobey's has pops on for 3.44 each for a pack of 12, i know not ideal as 3 is the lowest i have seen, however i needed a bunch for a party on Monday and didn't see any upcoming deals. The limit was 4 so i had to ring in 4 - 3 times over. I did not realize till now that the feds were so kind as to not charge GST on iced tea or on the EHF for iced tea. Each bill was different, 1 had 4 pops on it, the other 2 each had 3 pops and an iced tea on it, all bills were different, i thought - wow that is odd for the last 2 not to be the same. 3.44 plus 10 cents deposit per can = 1.20 cents, plus 5 cents per can for EHF = 60 = 5.24 * 4 = 20.96 subtotal * 5% GST on pop and EHF = $0.81 = $21.77 for all pop. 3 pop plus iced tea subtotal the same - should be GST on the 3 pop plus EHF = 4.04*3*5% = .606 cents of 61 cents GST...1 over charged @ 68 cents and one undercharged at 53 cents - it all evens out in the end for me or i gained a penny out of the deal due to rounding. The overcharge was put through before the undercharge. The problem is with the discount..they took the full discount on 2 cases off plus GST on one and the full discount without the GST on the other...if i knew how to attach i would show the bills.

Thanks, here it is, I see they scammed me out of an airmile as well.

They didn't scam you out of an Airmile because container deposits are not included as a purchase, just like taxes and enviro fees are never included either.
