Indesit IDV75 Vented 7KG Tumble Dryer £144 @ Tesco Direct

Found 13th Jun 2013
Seems to be a good deal for a 7kg Vented Dryer with great reviews on all sites I looked at.

It is on special offer at £164.00 then you can enter the code: TDX-KQ9V to give £20 off.

They also have a special offer for free delivery at the moment.

So it is £144 all in with delivery.

I also used Quidco which says it will give 2% when used with that code for £20 off.

You also get 144 clubcard points which are worth a minimum of £1.44 and I guess a max of £5.76 if they do the 4x deals again.

Cheapest I could possibly find anywhere else was £148.00 on ebay.
Most of the normal places are £170-£190.

Hope it helps someone!

The £20 code can also be used on other home electicals when spending over £100.

Its £149 in argos.... They previously sold it for £139 for example

Currys sell it for £149 also

So I am voting cold because your deal is just a £20 off voucher & cashback which is not what this site is about

I agree it's not much of a deal but give the guy a break, he should be encouraged to post deals on here.

I have this, bought it for £150 from Currys recently.

1st tumble drier I've owned and its fantastic, only use occasionally

I think you'll find that is what this site is about! Having £20 off an item and the bonus of any cashback.

People are after the best deals - if you can find a better deal please post it but saying that currys sell it for £149 isn't much help as that is more than this costs!

I'll try and keep it simple for you.

Currys and Argos are selling it for £149
Tesco is selling it for £144

The Tesco amount is a smaller amount than the currys and argos amount. A smaller amount means it costs less. Costing the least is what makes it a deal.

Just in case that was a bit too much writing I'll put the important bit below for you

144 is a smaller number than 149


By the way it was £179.99 at argos when I posted the deal

Thanks to all the people that voted hot, it might not be the biggest saving but even with the recent reductions on other sites I still can't find it cheaper anywhere else.

And if you look at the top of the page you will see a heading called "vouchers"

Voted hot! - best price for item equals hot to me

Voted hot. Ignore the people that say "it's only £20" at the end of the day, its a saving, no matter if its 1p or £20 a saving is a saving.
That is what this site is about, saving people money.

This isn't some kind of hidden voucher, it states clearly on the page when you are buying to enter the code at checkout. The code only applies to selected items of which this is one. It wouldn't be a very good voucher to post as it is restricted to certain items.

Either way this is still the cheapest it can be found and as you haven't posted a cheaper deal I take it you conceed and realise your mistake.

Spooky as my dryers on the fritz!

Good price, quidco, clubcard points and free delivery, HOT from me

spend some more on a A or A+ rated machine and you will save in the long run. inefficient appliances (ie. C and below) are false economy if they are high consumption appliances that you use regularly.

still, a good deal.

Not always the case.

C rated tumble dryers use a very simple heater element design, with very few parts to the whole machine which keeps it simple and likely to last longer.

The new A rated ones use complex heat pumps which are more likely to fail and when they do fail they cost more to repair.

I've had to look the next bit up but this C rated one looks to cost about £50 more per year than an average A rated for an average family. That equates to it being approx double the running cost.

The A rated machines seem to be around £700 so it would take 11 years to get back the savings on the electricity used! You would be lucky to get it to last this long!

In my opinion it would be false economy to buy an A rated over a C rated.


I did have a quick look for a B rated dryer and found one on Tescos for £339 but when I looked up the price to run it for a year 'which?' reckons it costs £17 more per year than the Indesit C rated one in this thread! There was also a Bosch for £380 which was also a B rated one but again that came out as costing more per year but only £2 this time!


I think you could do with doing a bit of research before going on about false economy!

A rated are too expensive to make them feasible in their life span
Other ratings don't appear to have any real relevance and don't appear to be tested in a fair way.

My personal advice for best value for more and best economy - is to buy a C rated at the best price you can find.

It took me 5mins on Google to find a well-reviewed, good-featured, 8kg capacity, condensor A+++ (30% more efficient that A-rating) rated machine for £330. Looks to offer far better value IN THE LONG RUN than machines rated C and below.

So I disagree that rated machines such as this are more costly than those rated C and below.

However, if you are looking for a quick/short-term/cheap option then a machine like the Indesit may be more suitable. So depends on what you are looking for.

Go on, what one is that? Have you got a link / model number?

My guess after a good search is the Beko DPU8360 - as that is the only one I can find for £330 but it appears to be A+ rated.

It is a good price but I would be wary, the reviews are mixed and even the good ones say the clothes come out damp. One person was very positive but said they had to put the clothes on the clothes horse to finish drying after!

According to the info it takes twice as long to dry anything (and then it isn't fully dry!). Using the same formula as which it should cost an average family £41 / year to run - a saving of approx £60 per year compared to this indesit one.

The initial cost is about £190 more so you wouldn't start to save any money until the 4th year of ownership, and don't forget it doesn't benefit from the simple design of the C rated ones - so will it last the long?

Also seems a little suspicious that no other similar rated one seems to be that cheap and indeed most seem to be £700+ with some going into 4 figures! I did spot a couple for around the £500 mark.

All weighed up I still think the C rated will offer better value for money, and will be more environmentally friendly in the long run.

Just to update.

Quidco Tracked with a guaranteed payment of £5.40

Tesco deals do seem to be doing 4x the value so you get £5.76 worth

So as a best case scenario this dryer costs £132.84

In a worst case if you just want to use the clubcard points as cash (£1.44 worth) then it would cost a total of £137.16

Dryer arrived today,

Fantastic so far - only thing I can note is that all the literature etc says it is 'B' rated for energy. Even has a big sticker to stick on the side which points the arrow at the B.

Offer seems to have ended at Tescos - so now £169 delivered.

Argos is now cheaper at £149.99 delivered. Or currys at £149.00
