Sony have just launched a great new deal in the run up to Christmas which will effectively reduce the price you pay on selected products by quite a tidy sum and makes some of the best Blu-ray players and home cinema systems we’ve seen this year, even better value.
It’s called the Sony VAT Back promotion because Sony will effectively give back to you the difference between the pre-VAT price, and the final selling price.
The promotion runs from the 28th October 2010 until the 24th December 2010, and you have to claim the money back by sending off a form and your receipt, but it’s quite simple to do:
- Buy any of the products included in the Sony VAT Back offer
- Download and complete the Sony VAT Back claim form and send off with your receipt
- Send off and wait for cheque from Sony!
There is a simple way to work out how much you’ll get back, as demonstrated below:
Retail Pay ÷ 1.175 = Net Price
Retail Price – Net Price = VAT Saving
£500 ÷ 1.175 = £425.53
£500 – £425.53 = £74.47
VAT back saving = £74.47
The Sony VAT Back promotion is only available on selected products – we’ve listed the Blu-ray players and home cinema systems below, together with a rough idea of the final cost to you after you have received your cash back:
- Sony BDP-S570 Blu-ray Player – Final cost around £142
- Sony BDP-S470 Blu-ray Player – Final cost around £130
- Sony BDV-E370 Blu-Ray Home Cinema System – Final cost around £273
- Sony BDV-E870 Blu-ray Home Cinema System – Final cost around £360
- Sony BDV-E670W Blu-ray Home Cinema System – Final cost around £412
- Sony BDV-F500 Blu-ray Home Cinema System – Final cost around £298
We especially like the deals on the BDV-E370 and the BDP-S570 and these are already great value systems and this makes them even better. There are a few more products in the promotion too such as video cameras, camcorders and many televisions, and you can see a full list on the Amazon.co.uk website. You’ll notice that the very popular BDP-S370 Blu-ray player is excluded from the offer which is a bit of a shame, but being such a big seller and at a good price already, we presume Sony felt it didn’t need any further price cuts.
So if you are looking for a new Blu-ray player, or the latest high definition home cinema system, then this promotion makes some of the best systems around at the moment, even sweeter deals for a very happy home cinema Christmas!
