Excellent tv, got this from amazon when it was £330!

This is part of the Sony claim your VAT back promotion too, so another £50 off.

Scorching!

The site is a little ambiguous regarding the VAT. I can't work out if the VAT off is included in the price or not. next to the picture it says
"Great offers
VAT-back price £382.98. See link below for full Sony terms & conditions."
To me this would indicate that all Sainsburys have done is advertise the TV once the VAT has been taken off???
If we got 329.99 minus VAT then that would be a Hot Deal, but its a little unclear......

I thought the same thing.
The bit on the page that mentions the VAT-back price £382.98. That's the original price, less the VAT back.
Add it to your basket and it's £329.99, so that's the price BEFORE the VAT back promo.

Hi, the £329.99 is the pre VAT reduction price, you claim your £49 ish when you send your receipt and guarantee to Sony. They will send them back with a cheque. They have the forms in store, well Tesco do.
Just remembered that there is also a free Sony 5 year warranty form that someone posted on here a few weeks ago but can’t find it. It was a link to a PDF file, can anyone help, can’t remember either if there were restrictions.
#6
Also, does anyone know if this has the WIFI internet thingy?
#7
I just ordered this TV and can confirm that I was charged £329.99 - there's no need to claim VAT back. It's £110 more on Amazon at the moment.
#8
Found the post detailing the 5-year warranty, though for anyone who tries this deal, even if you opt to collect the TV yourself (it's an instore promotion only), you won't know until you try it whether or not Sainsburys are a "participating store" and will stamp your form to validate it...

Absolute steal, heat added!

Er Why? You can still claim the VAT back even on the £329.99 price
#12
Ordered! The order confirmation states this is not a VAT receipt. I'll call Sony tomorrow but for now, does anyone know if this is likely cause a problem.

That's 2 EX403U tvs I've bought in the last 2 weeks! My patience paid off when Best Buy let me have the 37EX403U + BDP-S370 + free Bluray for £450 2 weeks after the offer was over! :D
#13
So I have been looking to buy this TV for a few weeks. Also saw the Sainsburys deal.... and here is the logic I used:
At the moment, the TV is c£440 and then the VAT offer which ends 24/12 takes it to c£375.
The Sainsburys offer is the likely price the TV will be everywhere from Dec 26th sales, and if purchased before tomorrow works out at £280 with the VAT offer.
However, I am buying it tomorrow from John Lewis for £445 for the following reasons: 1) I can claim on the VAT back offer with Sony 2) It comes with a 5yr warranty and 3) John Lewis are likely to reduce the price to £330 on Monday. If they do, their 'never knowingly undersold' deal means they will refund the difference in price if it reduces within 28 days. This could mean that I get it with a 5 yr warranty for £265 (£445 - £65 vat - £115 JL refund). Worst case is that JL only refund me £50 as they know I claim the VAT deal, then the TV costs me £315 with a 5 yr warranty. Thoughts?

I would buy it from Sainsbury's for 280 and get the 5 years warranty from Sony (see mac_d's post on this page). Very ingenuous btw :)

#16
A question please. Can you buy today, 24th Dec and still have the VAT returned? Thanks
#17
Hi TheM
Agree that Mac-D's post is interesting but I do not think it will apply with Sainsburys if you also want the VAT offer - the purchase has to be made in store by 24th - this will not be possible as the Sainsburys sale is online only. Even collect in store will not work as it will be next week before you can pick it up
The only way to get the 5 yr warranty and VAT offer is to purchase tomorrow, say at JL tomorrow, claim the VAT offer from Sony and then the reduced price difference from JL when they reduce the price next week.

Also ref the VAT returned if you purchase before the 24th - yes it will, b
#18
Bottom line its 299 at Richer Sounds & comes with a sony 5 year guarentee. If the VAT offer comes back to bite you in the a*se, you'll be a bit unhappy. Sony tv for the price of a hanspree.
#19
very confused, are we saying
1) You can claim VAT back on the £329 pice ?
2) You cannot claim VAT as ordering it online on the 24th means you've missed the boat?
#20
I agree, more than a tad confusing with so many different deals and combinations!
As I read it:-
1) The price at Sainsburys doesn't include the VAT back. Assuming you could claim the VAT back it would reduce it by another £50 making it £280.
2) Again, as I interpret the rules it says that you must make the purchase before and including the 24th. Therefore if you order it today and the invoice/receipt that comes with it is dated the 24th then you should be fine. The only problem could come if the invoice/sales receipt is dated as the date of dispatch (which will clearly be after 24th). I would personally think it should be included but depends on how Sony interpret their own rules and how fussy they want to be! And if they do reject it whether you want the hassle of fighting it. Though £330 is still a fairly OK price so it wouldn't be the end of the world.
You also need the serial number from the tv and the warranty document but as the claims don't have to be in until end January as long as the tv is delivered reasonably promptly it shouldn't be a problem.
3) Richer Sounds will be good if you have a store near you but would be a 2 hour drive for me to a big city and I don't fancy the hassle. Also as I understand it the 5 year warranty deal is £330 and it's only a 1 year warranty at £299. It also depends how much stock they have too I guess if it's a deal they are really pushing it will be most likely over-subscribed.
4) The other 5 year warranty deal is great in theory though sounds like a bit of a long shot in my opinion and pretty much impossible for an online order.
5)maneshlakhani's John Lewis idea is an excellent one and very ingenious! The only slight flaw in the plan being if they decided not to reduce the price of the tv in the following 28 days. There is no Richer Sounds near me and I'm not sure whether they'd match Sainsburys online price. In which case (worst case scenario for me as far as I can see it) you'd end up paying £375 (but have the 5 year warranty and tv before Christmas) which is again not as good as some other deals in the last month but far from the end of the world.
If I could be bothered to drive to John Lewis today and brave the Christmas traffic/shopping chaos I might have gone for it but as it is I think I'll wait to see what Boxing day onwards brings in terms of tv prices personally. Though I could easily be wrong!
#21
I found my local store had it in stock, so phone a few of your local stores up and see if they can reserve you one! Sainsbury Store Finder Pickup today and your receipt should allow for VAT refund from Sony X)
#22
Good summaary littlebighorse!
Also please note that Richer Sounds stores are now closed until Boxing day (yes closed on Xmas eve!!)
So your option is to go with my idea or wait till boxing day - If you can get it for £299 with a 5 yr warranty from somewhere its a good deal and hassle free

Has anyone ever purchased from Sainsburys before and got the 5yr warranty stamp needed?

The store needs to stamp it.

Hello and thanks for your reply. Just been to Sainsbury's and bought the TV for 329.99. They also handed me the famous VAT form and when I asked about the 5 years guarantee form they were very confused... so I called Sony at 0330 440 2060 and they said that my purchase qualifies for the scheme as long as I send to them the original receipt no later than 24th Jan. When I got there they had 6 TV's in stock, on the shelf the price is around 450£ but it scans at 329.99, hope this helps anyone. Also the chap dealing with the TV's was very helpful. Cheers!

TheM,

Interesting you mention that, as having spoken to Sony myself this morning, they say a stamp and the account number has to be filled in on the warranty form. Note that this form only requires a photocopy of the receipt, so you can send the original for the VAT back.

Tbh, you only have the postage cost to lose even if you buy a Bravia product and try to claim the warranty for 5 years, even if Sony gives out confusing information on what stores take part, what needs filling in, sending back, etc. Gonna try it on a rpevious Bravia purchase even though Best Buy are not part of it. They can only say no.

Many thanks for your reply, Sman. I called Sony again and a very ''lovely'' lady said that Sainsbury's does not qualify for the 5 years guarantee scheme and recommended me to have it returned and buy it from a qualifying store... I explained her that is Christmas Eve and I don't have time for this. They've ruined my holidays... Nice one Sony!

The uncertainty over the VAT back has put me off this deal.
I'll take my chances instead with the Sony Centre (£300) or Richer Sounds (£330) on Boxing Day instead with their 5 year warranty's. :)
#38
What uncertainty? As long as you order one by midnight tonight, you qualify for VAT back. It's only the warranty that's the issue.
#39
had a nice time searching for this today in 3 stores, got a confused person telling they had it in stock in one store only to turn up to be a different model. But found they really did have 4 at crystal palace. Picked one up and it is a great piece of kit for the price.
Well done !... Not overly concerned if I don't get the VAT back as its quite a large reduction already. But I will try to claim in the near year. Its running now :)

The uncertainty of which date will be on the Invoice/Receipt that arrives with the TV. It's that Receipt that you send off to Sony, not an order acceptance email received just after purchase today.
To contradict all this though, I ordered it anyway as I can always return it if a better deal turns up during the sales period, especially one that includes 5 year warranty. :)
Went via quidco for 2% and also Nectar card for 658 points. It all helps. :)
Quidco tracked already with £6.60.
