This winter season has been cold but the economic climate in January is set to make things colder, with a VAT increase increase slated for January 2011.

Lucky, then, that Sony has introduced its Get The VAT Back With Sony campaign.

If you buy selected Sony products across all categories you will not just beat the rise but beat the winter blues by getting a VAT refund.

From TVs to camcorders to laptops, Sony's Get The VAT Back means you will be able to bag a bargain right away.

If, say, you decide to go for the superb 55-inch Sony NX813 3D TV, then you will get a whopping £466.66 off of its Sony Store price by claiming the VAT back.

There's a multitude of Bravias, Vaios and Cybershots in the offer and you will even be able to get money back on Sony Reader and a whole host of camera accessories.
