Featured Shopping Brag: Couponmummy gets a SCOP at Staples/Bureau en Gros


Unlike the rest of Canada, the Scanning Code of Practice (SCOP) is compulsory for Quebec stores and does include sticker prices.  Forum member couponmummy took advantage of this recently at Bureau en Gros, where she got this Blackberry Charging Pod for free when it was advertised at the clearance price of $9.97 (reg $34.97) and rang in at $12.07.

As many of you are aware, you get the item free up to $10 but they need to reduce the price of the item to the advertised price first.  So couponmummy got this item for free – even better, SCOP reduces the taxes to $0 also!

    Why cant the rest of canada join in on this? This would be great!!! great way to save money! I’ve had this happen too many times, a sticker states one and the scanner says it’s higher. I think everyone should at least uphold sticker pricing. It’s not the consumers fault for a sticker still being on an item, it’s the stores IMO!

      @Kristina, many stores do practice SCOP outside of Quebec, it is just that SCOP states a ‘shelf price’ but they should be marking stickers down to the price they advertise or they can still be sued for false advertising

    Reminds me of last year at Toys R Us. We saw an xbox game “Your Shape Fiteness Evolved 2012” and the tag below said “19.99.” The game rang up at full price $60. They changed it with no problem. upon looking closer at the tag, it was for the original version, not the 2012. But since it was there, they still made the price change.

    Or when Toys r Us forgot to change the tag for “The Incredibles” on blu ray after a sale had ended. I still got it for $15 instead of the regular $32.

    If it has a tag on the product the SCOP does not count on that sale.
