Longo’s Canada Coupon Policy


Here is the Longo’s Canada coupon policy (I received this response when I asked them about coupon acceptance in their stores):

All Longo’s store locations have the exact same coupon policy.

  • Longo’s accepts all Canadian Manufacturers coupons with a valid expiry date.
  • We will also honour a store coupon along with a manufacturer coupon.
  • We will accept printable coupons as long as they are Canadian.

    I didn’t know they took printables, thanks!

    The Longo’s coupon policy you have there is out of date. I called and have confirmed they no longer accept internet printed coupons due to the increase in fraud.

    I don’t think it’s a good idea you post an employees name and other information on the email you received. Unless you go their consent otherwise I’m pretty sure it is illegal. Just thought I’d pass it on.

    Great website!

    I just used a ‘free’ product coupon but was charged the sales tax on it & was told that was their policy. That’s the 1st I’ve heard for a free item, is this correct for all free product coupons in Canada?

    • Yeah, the first that I have heard of, forcing customers to pay tax on the full price product coupons. The Longos Manager at the 808 York Mills Road, Toronto, location insulted my husband in front of everyone when he tried to redeem those Special K one day only coupon on Feb 9, 2013. This is the Provincial Policy regarding No tax on full product copuons:

      Other coupons

      Other coupons (whether reimbursable or not) that are not for one specific monetary discount may:

      offer a different percentage off the price of an item (such as 10% off the purchase of 5 or fewer boxes and 20% off the purchase of 6 or more);
      offer an item for no charge if another item is purchased (such as two-for-one coupons); or
      contain more than one monetary discount such as 25¢ off a 750 ml soft drink, or 50¢ off a 1.5 litre soft drink.

      These coupons reduce the selling price of an item before GST/HST is added. Therefore, deduct the value of the coupons from the selling price before calculating GST/HST.

      So, if the total payable value is ZERO, the tax based on Zero is Zero.

      Longos is doing something illegal by charging tax. The manager said that she has been doing it for many years and she was right.

    Regina: You are not required to pay RST. http://www.rev.gov.on.ca/en/guides/rst/511.html

    • Liz

      A quote from the website you linked to: “Effective July 1, 2010 this publication was archived for RST purposes only. Use caution when you refer to it, since it reflects the law in force for RST at the time it was released and may no longer apply.”

      Sometimes the full item price, including tax is reimbursed to the store by whoever issues the coupon, in which case, when the coupon is scanned by a cashier, both the item price and HST are deducted from the bill. This is not always the case, and it should be stated on the coupon in the fine print. Whether or not you pay taxes on a free item is at the discretion of whoever issued the coupon, and is not related to store policies. The store will not cover the cost of taxes on an item unless they will be reimbursed for it. This has been the same at every grocery store I have ever worked at.

      • Full price coupon are Other coupons. Tax is calculated based on the payable amount. If the total amount payable is ZERO, as deducted from the Full Price Product coupon, the tax is ZERO.
        NO tax on Full Price Product Coupons. It is the Provincial Law.
