They should NOT charge TAX on these. The PSN Store will ALSO tax the purchase, so you are being double taxed. I was going to pick one up, but I may pass now. I have GameRush credit and my credit is generally better than 20% off.

It just goes to show, this is only a deal at all if you have the 20% off. I was surprised it was taxed. I was going to ask someone, but I had to be at work. And a couple minutes at work is about a dollar for me, so screw it, haha.

It is rediculous that you have to pay $54 dollars or so for a $50 value on the PSN ... thank goodness I have a credit card.

Damn it. I can't make it to Meijer today. I would have been happy to snag me a PSN card.

Stupid work and Meijer being an hour away.

Laws vary by state and, for Michigan at least, it appears to be appropriate to charge sales tax on these. The topic has been covered in other threads - I'm too lazy to link or rehash the arguments though. If you can prove (by citing to state law) that they should NOT be charging sales tax on these but are, then let us all know - you can get a class action suit going and I can take my receipt to my local store and try to get a refund plus for them improperly charging me. IIRC I think it was a refund x3 for that.

I just wanted to say that the Meijer in Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor-Saline Rd.) didn't charge tax on the 12Month +1 XBL membership card. I picked one up today.

I want to say it varies as well. I had bought a card once at the perrysburg,OH. meijer and was not charged tax. At the Oregon, OH. meijer I was charged tax on it.

I just got back from Arlington Heights, IL's Meijer and they had no idea what I was talking about. There was a skinny kid working customer service and I asked him for a price check and he said, "Uhhhm, what do you mean?" in this really gay voice. I told him I heard about it being 20% off today and he checked and it was $50. I did a price check in the aisles and it said "PS2 assign" or something like that. It said $50. I went to check out and the lady said she couldn't check the price without activating the PSN card. I didn't want problems not being able to return it or something so I just walked out. I'm very disappointed in you guys.
Just kidding about the disappointment. I can't quit you guys.

Edit: I'm a moron and failed to realize there was a coupon required. I didn't think I'd find myself at Meijer's today, so I never read this thread carefully. My bad.

PSN cards were wiped clean at my Meijer. There were 3-4 ads sitting on the shelf, next to where the cards would be, with the coupon cut out.
