My first deal, hopefully I haven't got anything wrong. Please go easy. ;-)

Sony TG3 High Definition Digital Camcorder available at Amazon. The reason for posting this now is that the Sony £50 cashback offer on selected HD camcorders ends on 28th August (unless Sony extend the deadline) and Amazon have recently dropped the price again. This may be the last price drop before the deadline, if not you can claim back under Amazon's 30 day policy.

Yes this camcorder is slightly cheaper elsewhere but the 30 day price refund makes this a safer bet should the price drop again (personally I have claimed back just over £30 since buying mine).

Product features:
* 4 megapixel still photo recording plus Dual Rec while recording movies
* 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus touchscreen
* Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 10x optical zoom

* HD 1920x1080 recording on removable Memory Stick

Looking at this one myself... smart camera. Have been told though that Sony will extend their cashback, like most companies do, so im gonna have to wait until i get some cash through from insurance on my old Sony that got damaged.

This is by far the cheapest coz ive been looking elsewhere (play, empire, sound&vision, etc, etc) and found this one at Amazon last week. Just out of interest i was also following one second hand on fleabay last week... it went for £410 !! I suppose some peeps just dont know where to look ;-)

Lol... as soon as i wrote that i thought some clever bugga would come up with a site ive never even heard of and beat it haha ;-)

Musicals have some rep hehe :-D

Can someone explain to me what is cold about getting £50 back on one of the cheapest prices around, when that offer expires in 7 days (unless extended by Sony) and comes with a 30 day price guarantee?

this camcorder has fantastic reviews.. i will wait for the price to drop sub-400 before i buy it though.

I agree. You can get it slightly cheaper elsewhere, but be careful because not all suppliers are eligible for the sony cashback promo. The camcorder must be distributed by Sony UK. Sites like amazon which advertise the promo are fine. For those that don't, you might have to question why?

Voted hot, gonna order. Reviews say the battery life is so-so, any deals for spare battery?

Got this camera its fab and just picked up the Vegas 8 Platinum software for £24 odd from Amazon

I ordered the battery from Amazon for £24.99.

Look at the other buying choices for Amazon. Seems like a reasonable price to me.

The cheaper retailer I flagged also offers the Sony discount. Better buying cheaper now than waiting 30 days on a promise, MKICampaign.

I was thinking more of companies like Pixmania who are selling the TG3 for £466.90. 3% Quidco, £11 OFF promo code "Priceuk080802" . Del £8.30. Brings total to £450.50 minus the £50 cashback from Sony.

However having spoken to the SONY cashback claims line, they won't be definitive on whether sites that don't advertise the promo are covered.

Oh, cashback-rewards do 2.5% on amazon.co.uk. Max £5 electricals, so that makes it slightly cheaper if that's one of the cashback sites you use (I only use it for Amazon, trust Quidco for most everything else).

Now £468.05
