Beat the VAT rise with Sony

With VAT due to increase to 20% on January 3rd, shoppers have shown an eagerness to get their big purchases in early, in the hope that they can beat the tax man in 2011.

And now Sony is helping shoppers even further in the run-up to Christmas, by offering to give you the VAT back on a wide range of Sony products before the increase in the New Year.

From now until Christmas Eve, Sony will reimburse your VAT on all eligible products. Once you have bought your new Sony gift, simply complete a claims form, send off your receipt (which will be returned to you) and in no time at all, Sony will be sending you a cheque or BACs transfer for the value of the VAT. It really is that simple!

The range of Sony goods on offer is as extensive as you’d expect from one of the world’s top electronics brands, meaning that you can pick up a big saving no matter what you are looking for. From TV’s, audio equipment and digital photography, through to book readers and laptop computers, you could pick up a big saving.

We have picked out three great Sony products, all of which are part of this fantastic promo, which would make an idea gift for someone special or just a great addition to your home.

We’ll start with the TV because, let’s be honest, you’ll want to see this year’s cracking Christmas films and the Queen’s speech in crystal clarity, won’t you?

If so, enjoy stunningly detailed high-definition viewing with the slimline Sony 32in KDL32EX403U TV.

This superb 32in screen has a full HD 1080-pixel resolution, creating amazingly life-like images, vibrant colours and impressive detail with five times the picture quality over standard definition freeview. Sony’s Bravia Engine 3 and 24p True Cinema technology also give you sharper and smoother motion, making it great for past-paced images that you’d expect in action movies and live sport.

You can also keep the whole family entertained with the built-in home networking technologies, which allows you to play video and audio directly from your networked PC or other digital devices.

Built-in Freeview also means that you won’t be struggling for things to watch this Christmas* and there is even a £50 saving on the normal price – that’s before you consider the VAT cash back!

If it’s the sound of Christmas that is more important to you, then this Sony customised iPod docking station could prove to be the perfect festive gift.

You can listen to your iTunes library in rich sound quality on the powerful but compact iPod docking station, which lets you choose between 4 urban graffiti-style fronts or even design you own, giving your iPod speakers the look you want.

Your iPhone or iPod drops easily into the slot on the front and can be left to charge overnight, so you’ve got a full day’s charge, ready to go in the morning.

If however, Christmas is all about enjoying those special family moments, then capture them with this Sony Full HD camcorder HDR-CX155.

With up to 6.5hr Full HD on 16GB internal memory, you’ll be able to capture all of those memorable moments whilst the Carl Zeiss lens with 25x optical zoom and SteadyShot Active Mode means that you’ll have some outstanding high quality shots – perfect for your high definition TV.
