Do 0.99 cent Arizona Ice Tea cans charge bottle deposit tax?


One thing I like about Arizona Ice Tea is that that no matter where you are in the country, it is always .99 cents. So if I go to a super market or 7-11, it will always be the same, unlike other sugary drinks like Gatorade where the average convenience store charges $2 for a bottle.

I was craving a can of the tea last week but the local convenience store charges .45 cents for a card transaction. I only had $1 in cash and was wondering if a bottle tax is charged on top of the .99 cents. Turns out that the bottle deposit is built into the price. It was exactly the price on the can, 0.99c. Pretty cool.
