Sears Reminds Ontario Customers About Last 3 days to Save Tax on ENERGY STAR(R) Qualified Appliances



    August 31, 2009 last day to save Ontario Retail Sales Tax

    TORONTO, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC) reminds Ontario
customers that the final day to save the Retail Sales Tax (RST) on ENERGY STAR
qualified appliances is Monday, August 31, 2009. Up to and including that
date, the sales tax will not be charged at point of sale, resulting in
meaningful savings for customers who act before the deadline. Beginning
September 1, 2009, sales tax will resume on all ENERGY STAR appliance
transactions.

    Save the equivalent on the GST too!

    In addition to saving the Ontario RST, Sears customers can save the
equivalent of the federal GST until August 31 too during Sears "It's like
there's NO GST ADDED" sale starting Saturday, August 29. Sears customers can
also defer their payment for free until November, 2009 when they use their
Sears Card or Sears MasterCard.
    As well as saving the Ontario RST and the equivalent of the federal GST,
Sears has discounted the price of some of its most popular appliances during
this period. For example, the Kenmore Elite HE3 front-load washer is
$1,049.99, regularly 1299.99. That's a $250 saving, in addition to the RST and
GST-equivalent savings! Choose from an 18.2 cu. ft. Kenmore top-freezer
refrigerator at $589.99, regularly $629.99 or an 18.7 cu. ft. bottom-freezer
refrigerator for $999.99, regularly $1099.99. Over 90% of Kenmore dishwashers
are ENERGY STAR qualified, including the Kenmore 24-inch tall-tub dishwasher
for $529.99, regularly $599.99.
    Many more major appliances are on sale during this period; in fact, Sears
has a larger selection of ENERGY STAR qualified appliances in Canada than any
other retailer.
    Customers who use their Sears Card or Sears MasterCard can also take
advantage of a special interest-free offer to pay for their appliances in 24
equal monthly installments until September, 2011. Details in store, on line at
www.sears.ca, or through the catalogue at 1-800-26-SEARS.
