Almost all products are significantly cheaper

What has been suggested for a few days is now official: MediaMarkt is relaunching its popular VAT campaign and is offering a discount of almost 14 percent on a large part of the range. GIGA has the details.

MediaMarkt: These are the highlights of the VAT campaign

MediaMarkt's now traditional VAT campaign began on Thursday at exactly 8 p.m.: For most of the available products, MediaMarkt promises: β€œ16% VAT free”. The actual discount is not 16, but it is 13.793 percent – in many cases the products are available at the current top price, which also undercuts the cheapest offers from other retailers. GIGA has already selected some of the highlights. Note: Only the original price is displayed on the product page itself – the actual discount can only be seen in the shopping cart. Some of the supposed bargains are however quite high Shipping be nullified. Often the only thing that helps here is delivery to a local MediaMarkt – then there are no additional costs. In any case, you have to pay online for the discount to be granted.
