I've been looking for a large load washing machine for a while and think this deal is cracking for a Top of the Range model from Panasonic with Steam action.
Please be aware this involves using the 'Never knowingly undersold policy' and paying the full £699 initially and then receiving refunds of £150 and £200 from John Lewis and Panasonic respectively.
The cashback offer from Panasonic is for purchases made by 9th Jan. The necessary claim form links for cashback and 5yr warranty are on the John Lewis product page under the picture of the machine.
I initially sent an email to John Lewis customer services detailing the Lower Price from the web site below and then received confirmation of price match very quickly.http://www.prcdirect.co.uk/details.php?nrd=1&product_url_id=NA140VZ4WGB&gclid=CI_R35Ll8sICFdQZtAodg3oAHA
Total final price is £349 !!!
Beware when doing price comparisons that some sites claim to have list prices sub £500 but these are inclusive of the £200 cashback. Hence the reason for buying from John Lewis and not PRC Direct in this case.
