Surprisingly, Makro is listed as a 'participating retailer'. Heat added.

Why wouldnt it be, its for every sony sold by a sony retailer.
#4
full list of Sony items included in the offer can be found here

John Lewis sell this for an extra £10 (ish) with a 5 year guarantee

John Lewis is £24.60 more, but agreed no stock. If they had some I'd be going for that deal. Why don't they have an 'email me when stock available'.

Is it worth ringing John Lewis stores rather than using website?

Makro aren't a retailer, they're a wholesaler and they're more usually excluded from offers like this.

Can anybody who's going to buy one possibly have a look to see if they have the 37" version and if so how much for ??
I have a built in unit which would just take the 40" but looking at the pictures it seems that the set is stood a few inches back on the stand which would mean i'd have less clearance due to shelving.

Great deal ! cheers.

**
Just seen the John Lewis link above and they have the 37" in stock @ equivalent of £382.94 after cashback, not to bad seing as i was offered a 2nd hand 32" last week for £350, shows how they've come down in price too.

Just been to Nottingham Makro and it is £549.99 + VAT. Queried this with salesman and he said that was the correct price, I mentioned the offer and asked if it was nationwide and he said he knew nothing about it, but that usually offers are nationwide. Which Makro store was this offer in OP?

I bought one today from LEEDS Makro! Hooray!

Was going to try get one from John Lewis yesterday (thanks to 5 yr warranty) and as website didn't have any in stock at £469.00 I rang the nearest store in Sheffield, they had one but at £679 and wouldn't match the website due to no stock. Boo. So Makro was next best offer.

It now seems that virtually all stores have put their prices UP since Sony announced the VAT offer.

John Lewis up from £469 to £584
Tesco up from £499 to £578
Currys up from £499 to £699!

I rang Leeds store, they checked stock against barcode number listed above and said they had 'a few' left - but hadn't sold many since they got that model in in May... Above price does state that it WAS £549 - reduced to £399 so no idea why other stores don't have the same deal?

cardiff makro was unable to sell a tv at this price
#15
if you by from Makro check the recipt for warrenty info as you are seen as buying trade - to - trade and not as a normal consumer so your rights maybe affected.
#16
There's only one type of customer at Makro isn't there? Surely if this were the case Makro wouldn't be one of the suppliers listed?

I just rang Sony VAT back customer services and was told that I will be receiving £82.25 VAT cash back!!

I have no idea where this figure came from, as I purchased the TV from Makro for £399 + Vat (total £469). If I go to Sony website http://www.sony.co.uk/hub/1237479518823/?campaignId=15017871&s_kwcid=sony%20VAT%20back|7369808373 and enter £469 it suggests £69 cash back - not £82.00

So all in all it makes this TV £387.73

BARGAIN!!!!!!
David
