What Sony's VAT cashback promotion gives with one hand...
Come on everybody, let's give a big ol' cheer for Sony! HOORAY!
Yes! Visit your local Sony Centre and add some extra sparkle this Christmas, by claiming the VAT back on a wide range of technology from Sony! And it's not just Sony - other high street stores including John Lewis and Argos are also part of this cashback-style offer! Merry Christmas everybo-
Yesterday John Lewis were selling:
37EX403U @£450 (£382 when including VAT back)
40EX403U @ £480 (£408 when including VAT back)
However today the prices have rocketed to:
37EX403U @ £522 (£444 when including VAT back)
40EX403U @ £584 (£497 when including VAT back)
Oh. According to the guys and dolls on Hot UK Deals, and folks over on MSE (and here, too), the prices of several Sony products have been increased to offset the promotion, meaning the VAT cashback offer isn't anywhere near the deal the shiny marketing would have you believe. Merry Christmas.
