    Sony £100 tv trade in

    Where can I get a cheap/free crap tv to use as a trade in against a new Sony Bravia. Do you think I could get away with one from the local council tip when dropping off garage rubbish - or do you think the council workers will stop me !!

    Take a baseball bat with you and see how it goes.

    i asked the women at the council tip if i could have a look at the flat screens when i was helping my mate dump some stuff, all she said was no then walked away.

    To get £100 off you would prob have to trade a 37" sony, im sure if you want the full £150* off its got to be a 46" sony

    You would think that they would not be bothered with people removing things like this as it almost consitutes recycling. Looking at the 40" which I think has £100 off. Do you think they would accept a broken in car twin dvd system ?

    Unsure as to whether the dvd player screens will be classed as TV's as they only play DVD's. Might give it a go with the helpful council workers while I am there anyway. Pretty sure of the response but you never know !!

    just read the t&c's, looks like you can trade in any tv, the discount depends on the size of tv you buy not trade, and it looks like it did end on the 18th of october.

    Council tips won't be able to give you anything electrical. Theres always old tellys being given away on freecycle though. Find out your nearest freecycle, sign up & post a 'wanted' ad for a telly.
    Simples!
