...unless, of course, you like getting taxed for the same dollar twice.
Got paid today and went to Future Shop to pick up a $50 and $20 card for the Store...
When I went to the cash, today - after the dreaded HST went into effect yesterday - , I had to pay taxes on the cards. The $50 one alone came to $56.50 at the register.
"I better not be taxed for my purchase through the PSN, then", I thought to myself.
Bought the Playstation Plus membership and got hit for another $6.50 at the checkout.
Paid $6.50 in taxes twice... for the same $50.
Not gonna make that mistake again.
I loved having these cards up here so I wouldn't have to put my credit card on file but damned if I'll ever get taxed twice for the same purchase again.
Canadians.... DO NOT BUY THESE CARDS ANYMORE.
Unless, of course... well, see my first sentence above.
