Found 28th Nov
Black Friday discount in airport stores (no VAT rebate involved) for the Sonos play 1. The uneducated store assistant was going to give me a sonos One (Alexa version) for that price but I signalled her her mistake. For 10 pounds less, you get availability and 1 year warranty instead of 6 vs the previous deal.

"For 10 pounds less, you get availability and 1 year warranty instead of 6 vs the previous deal."
...I don't get this.
Good price...although if I'm reading your comment right...5 years more warranty for £10 seems good value though.

This is a £20 saving. The previous deal at £139 with 6 years warranty was from smarthomesounds.co.uk, but only available to existing customers.

It's available from richer sounds for £149 (the new RRP) with 6 years warranty.

If ultimate you want the lowest price then this is a good deal but they aren't the lightest of things to carry around with you on a long haul flight...probably better quality than the IFE system though haha

Yes, I did not express myself clearly. I wanted to point out that those who value a longer warranty might want to look elsewhere.
To avoid carrying that too much, one can do "shop and collect" and pick them up on the way back.

They also take currys vouchers. (I used mine from zeek)

i would have not corrected her mistake

Thanks

so collect it on your way back then?

so collect it on your way back then?


If you are flying to a destination in the EU then yes you can collect on your way back or else they also deliver - but then there is usually a charge for it - unless ofcourse if you are flying from Heathrow and buy it via the Heathrow Boutique and the total spend is 500 or more (I think), then they deliver free of cost too. All Curry shops accept return of stuff bought from Dixons so in case you change your mind its relatively straightforward return. Last but not the least if you are flying from Heathrow its also worth checking the heathrow rewards as they have some decent bonus points offer going on right now.

Hope this helps.

I'm travelling back from Europe to UK tomorrow - can I reserve does anybody know? FAQ's suggest collect from Dixons but I'll not be passing through the shops in the terminal.

Thanks, but on the reservation screen it just gives me an option of the flight time - but doesn't let you input direction of travel. So can I only reserve this on outgoing (from UK) flights do you know?

I don't know. best is to call them. Each shop number is available on dixon travel website.

Looking forward to the day Dixons start to offer VAT relief like Boots, JD and Wh Smith have all introduced (possibly others) airside at airports). If you don't know what this, as long as you are flying outside of the EU, then if you spend £5 (could be 6) then the store will give remove the VAT charge (as long as you show your boarding pass).

It’s a steal at this price. But inconvenient

All Sonos kit has a 2 year warranty in the UK. I got one of these flying out of Heathrow yesterday and collect it on my way back tonight. You collect purchases from the excess baggage desk so you don't have to take them on your travels with you.

Dixons are airside shop - which means you can only access them/pay them if you have cleared the security checks. Unless something has changed recently, I am afraid you can't reserve and collect when you haven't paid for them on your way out of the UK - you can always call and confirm with them.

Plain and simple - they are conning people off the VAT !! There are numerous articles about it in the newspapers and yet nothing changes.

I'm off to Germany tomorrow wooooooo

I've been looking for some Sonos speakers and missed earlier deals wooooooo

I'm flying from Leeds Bradford airport where there is no Dixons baaaaaa

humbug

They were £139 in Edinburgh Airport Dixons Travel today.

Wasn't this the price earlier this week, or have I got that wrong?

In Dixon's case I wouldn't say they are conning people off the VAT. They are sharing the VAT savings they make between EU and non-EU flights so everyone pays the same price, which is less than the High Street, and often less than the lowest online prices. WHS, Boots etc charge usual High Street prices (or more) and just profit from their VAT saving (which is why I refuse to show then my boarding pass).

many luxury brand shops do the same. That's why if you are interested in an expensive luxury item, it can be worthwhle to call the airport shops to check prices and availability, then you buy the least expensive flight ticket just go to the shop and don't fly. On big ticket items it can be worth the hassle.
