Sony Offers £150 For Old TVs

It's pretty reasonable to assume that most TV's purchased as a replacement for an older model. Which makes Sony's latest offer of "up to" £150 of a new Bravia TV if you trade in an older set pretty darned good should you be in the market.

The full £150 is only available on Bravia's over 46in. For 40in TV's the discount is a lesser £100, and 26in to 37in models will only be reduced by £50. Nonetheless, if you were planning to throw your old TV away, it's still money for nothing, no matter how much of a rebate Sony is offering.

Perhaps detracting from the offer's appeal, slightly, Sony requires that the old TV be taking into a store - where you'll quite unsurprisingly have some paperwork to fill in - to get the discount, which is a bit of a pain. Sony promises that traded-in TVs will be recycled, so you could think of it as being paid to not chuck your old set in a landfill site if you like.

Interestingly while the size of discount given depends on the size of TV purchased, the size of TV traded in is irrelevant. Which reminds me, I'm pretty sure I have a 15in CRT sitting about somewhere...

The promotion will finish on 18 October, so if you've got a decent amount of time to get involved.

Sony.

Nice cute idea but there is no way I am struggling into the centre of Bath with our hefty old CRT TV to get a rebate. - And probably get a parking ticket whilst I unload!

my current TV weighs in at a collosal 65 kg and takes up more room than a 60" TV how is Sont going to deal with behemoths like this, I'm sure theyve not thought this through properly.

Hmm my 40inch samsung is broken at the moment and will cost a fair bit to fix. Maybe I can recover some money back from it by doing this... needs further investigation.

Im guessing the new set has to be purchased from Sony then, which renders this offer useless as much cheaper deals can be found from third party suppliers.

The deal applies to stores only, so you might as well buy your new Bravia online. The online discount usually more than £50 for 26" to 37" - considerably more.

I knew I should have kept that old projection TV we had for some reason, would have been funny to see Sony take that one in, we had to dismantle it just to get it out the house, and take it carefully to the tip watching the speed bumps didn't crack the tubes.
