Tesco launches VAT-free deal on laptops and clothes

Tesco has cut the prices on all laptops and all adults’ clothing lines by 20% – the equivalent of the new rate of VAT.

The price cuts start today, Wednesday 26 January, and will be available in store and online at www.tesco.com. The laptops sale runs until stocks last and the clothing sale finishes on 1 February 2011.

Kari Daniels, Tesco’s non-food marketing director, said: “Tesco’s 20% off savings mean VAT-free shopping – whether that’s on luxuries like a fashionable jacket or lovely lingerie – or basics to make their lives easier such as laptops. We’ve got lots of bargains on a range of products – and customers can expect more from us in the coming weeks.”
