As of February 4, 2013, Canadian Tire has adopted the fair rounding approach for CASH transactions. When proper change is not available, the amount owing after tax will be rounded to the nearest $.05.
· Rounded down: If the last digit of the amount is 1, 2, 6 or 7.
· Rounded up: If the last digit of the amount is 3, 4, 8 or 9.
· Rounding does not apply to Debit, Credit or Gift Card payments, unless it is a split payment, in which case, split payment rules apply.
· On split payment transactions, if cash is the last method of payment used, the amount owing will be subjected to rounding. If cash is not the last payment type tendered, no rounding will take effect.
· You can still pay the unrounded total in cash if you have the correct change. For example, if the amount owing after tax is $10.03, and you have 3 pennies, you can pay the unrounded total.
· These rules apply to U.S. currency as well.
· Canadian Tire ‘Money’ will be issued on the pre-rounded amount.
· Rounding will also be applied to refunds paid out in cash.
· Purchases made with Gift Cards will be settled to the exact amount.
· Auto Work orders are also subject to rounding, which is done at the register. Therefore, the total on the work order may not match the total being paid at the register.
