Discounted 2015 vignettes?

It's time to buy my 2015 vignette, and I figured I might as well get a discount if I can...

Denner are offering vignettes at CHF35- instead of CHF40- with a CHF100 spend:

Has anyone seen a better offer?

Re: Discounted 2015 vignettes?

Every year Denner offers a discount on these with a purchase. There are conditions attached to the chf 100 purchase to obtain the chf 5 discount.
For me it has never been worth it.

As for a better offer, well if you want to subscribe to the Blick, they have a special offer if you order a 6 month subscription for chf 100 (regular price is 382.50) they will send you a vignette for free.

Buy 5 vignettes, save CHF 10... better than a slap in the face with a wet kipper.

Re: Discounted 2015 vignettes?

Is it true that the 2014 vignette is valid until the end of January 2015?

Re: Discounted 2015 vignettes?

Denners offer does not include purchases of tobacco or alcohol, but wines are included in the Sfr100 purchase.
Unfortunately none of "our" wines were on special, so we didn`t qualify for the discount.

I wish they`d take note of their regular good wine customers who buy throughtout the year!

Re: Discounted 2015 vignettes?

Interdiscount is running a promo with certain models of HP printer. It is in the latest flyer and I imagine on the website (which is currently down).

The offer is a free 2015 vignette with the purchase of specified HP printers. Don't need a printer so I did not check if the pricing was reasonable or not.

Re: Discounted 2015 vignettes?

I've seen some car dealers offering a free vignette when you buy a car.

Worth considering.

Thanks ...... I wasn't thinking of changing the car, but if I can save 40 chufs on a vignette, I may have to reconsider spending a few grand.

Re: Discounted 2015 vignettes?

I saw in a newspaper an offer to buy 2 * stays in some hotel network in Europe valid for one year and get the vignette for free. Was not motivated enough to dig more on the subject.

Mediamarkt this year offered only (yeah we remember last year's offer) wettbewerb to win a vignette.

This is know as the "Swiss method" of changing the vignette.

But isn't printing your own sort of, you know, illegal?

Alternatively just put a brick through your front windshield on Feb 1st and Carglass will give you a shiny new 2015 one when they replace the glass.
Obviously make sure you have 'glass cover' included in your policy

Re: Discounted 2015 vignettes?

When I was filling up in my local COOP garage (1.50Sfr a litre minus 4Rp), shop attendant offered me an auto vignette for 40Sfr and I agreed. One arsch-schmerz out of the way
