    I bought 6 little tubes of Pringles from Food Basics at $5.94. I just noticed that I was charged $9.00 TAX on this. WHAT?!?

    Can this be right?

    I should say not. Possibly a glitch in their system?

    You say you "just noticed"? I'm curious how you didnt pick up on a $14.94 charge for a $5.94 purchase.

    No way ! Definitely and error in the system or they scanned or wrongly entered something else. or pressed some wrong buttons.

    I think Food Basics is in ON only & not in other provinces. So the max you should have paid on it , is 13 % HST.

    So $ 0.77 = 77 cents - 13 % HST on $ 5.94

    Call them and tell them. There can't be a 200% tax on anything
