Deal of the week: cashback on Bosch appliancesBosch pays appliance energy costs for up to 3 years
12 October 2011
Looking for a new washing machine, dishwasher or tumble dryer? Bosch is currently offering up to £100 in an energy cashback scheme, to cover the energy costs of running selected Bosch products for up to three years.
The scheme runs until the end of the year on certain Bosch washing machines, tumble dryers, freezers, fridges and dishwashers - with different levels of cashback payments (ranging from £27.36 to £100.32) on different appliances.
The idea is that the payment - which is sent to you on a pre-paid Visa card after you complete an online form - covers the energy costs of that product for two or three years.
Bosch was the winner of the 'best large home appliance brand' category at the 2011 Which? awards, and has Best Buy products in each of its ranges.
Bosch energy cashback deal
The good news is you're not restricted to buying directly from the manufacturer to take up the cashback offer, meaning you can shop around first for the best price to shave even more off the overall cost. We've listed which products are in the deal, and how much cashback you'll get, below.
It includes the Bosch Exxcel WAQ28460GB washing machine (pictured), which we've tested in the Which? labs - read the full WAQ28460GB review here. Our experts thought this 7kg capacity machine was easy to use, with lots of wash programs and the time remaining clearly displayed during a cycle, which is helpful.
Several stores are offering this washing machine online for around or just more than £400 - including Dixons (£404), Appliances Online (£404) and independent store ElectricalExperience.co.uk (£398) including delivery. That's more than £70 cheaper than John Lewis.
After buying, you'll be entitled to claim back £41.76 as part of the energy offer - you'll need proof of your purchase to apply.
