PA Residents: Check e-mail for Newegg 10% individualized coupon code (YMMV)

-1 Deal Score
893 Views
I received an e-mail from Newegg today with a individualized 10% coupon (max discount $50) because of the new PA law regarding taxes and e-commerce. Beginning tomorrow PA will begin taxing e-commerce sales tax, which affects Newegg, so they sent me a code which expires 12/31 11:59PM PST. I'm not sure if the system checks your address book or your order history or what. My address book has 5 PA addresses (family), My payment option charges to my home in VA (which is where I live). I have made several purchases with delivery to PA (but charged to my CC with a VA address) - my last one was December 2015. So I don't know which is checks.

Here is the text of the e-mail:
Quote :
Dear XXXXXXXXX,

Nothing really new.

Before: YOU remit Use Tax via your PA 40.
Now: Vendor remits Sales Tax.

Right. But most people don't report online purchases so they're missing out on that sales tax. Same thing with Amazon, they used to be tax free. They just start with the big ones and work there way down.

or PA could remain business friendly instead of overstepping their bounds with interstate commerce, and just cut their spending (and they have quite a lot of reckless spending to cut, believe me...as someone who lives in this state)
