Real Canadian Superstore No Tax Event: April 17 – 18, 2010


On the weekend of April 17 – 18, 2010 enjoy tax-free shopping at Real Canadian Superstore! This would be a great time to buy items such as electronics, kitchen gadgets, home decor, books, toys, etc. as these would all be taxed on a regular day. I believe their patio and gardening merchandise is already out so great time to buy those tax-free as well.

Thanks to dphil for letting us know about this promo!

    Excellent time to use up any FPCs that usually have tax – I still have one pledge left.

  2. Ssseth says:

    Do gift cards ever have tax on them?

  3. Rosie says:

    What time is the event at?

  4. Jessica says:

    No, gift cards never have taxes on them. However this is a great time to buy outdoor flowers for my garden and use up lots of coupons (I imagine they will still have a coupon of the week!)

    Rosie – It’s from Open to Close, hours depending on which store you go to. Mine is 24 hrs. Hehehe.

    @Ssseth, Jessica: Some places like SDM carry gift cards that carry a service charge (eg: $5.00 fee) – and that service charge/fee will have tax. But the face value of the card is not taxable.

  7. This even is also on at Maxi stores in Quebec.
    As Cheapnik said earlier, it’s a great time to use FPC – I just got one for Always in the mail today.

    I noticed 2 independents in my area (Alexandria and Cornwall) that have this no tax event on everything, for this weekend only (April 17-18).

    one thing when I was shopping there yesterday in the kids section–the lady mentioned that there are no refunds allowed with it being tax-free purchases..does that make sense?

  12. Ricko says:

    No one told me that when I shopped at both Independents… but I noticed on both occasions that both taxes are calculated to my invoice, then they added 2 store coupons, the first equal for the GST and the second equal to the PST.

    I guess it would be the same as returning an item that I used a coupon for… I only get the money I paid for.

    I’m only guessing at this point.
