Taxes with price match
I was trying to get Dyson Canada to price match another Canadian retailer. In order to price match, I need to place the order first (eg pay the full price and tax on the full price). Then, email their support to get the price adjustment.
However, they are only willing to pay me back the price difference before tax. They claimed that they can't pay back the difference in taxes because that's regulated by government.
I think their reason does not make sense, because
1) No one would bother with price match when they can pay less with the retailer with the lower price.
2) Since tax is a percentage of product price and they are matching the price, the tax should be recalculated on the price change.
3) This has never happened to me with other retailers such as Best Buy or Staples.
Just want to ask what other RFDers think and anything I can do with this situation.
Thanks in advance.
