Car Vignette for 2009

2009 vignettes will be on sale soon. Where is the best place to buy them at a discount price?

It's a tax on your car and I don't think that the Swiss Gov't "does" discounts

Re: Car Vignette for 2009

Denner usually gives you a discount on the bike Vignette when you spend over a certain amount, so check them out.

Yes, of course I am serious. For the last few years they have been on sale at supermarket cash outs in Vaud with a discount for a month or so before the February changeover date.

Re: Car Vignette for 2009

Maybe it is part of some membership packages from the touring clubs. But no strings attached I don't think somebody will offer it under 40 Fr.

I think that Denner normally discounts them CHF 5 if you buy for more than CHF 100 (not including booze and cigs). This is from memory.

Look for the ads as of next week since the vignettes go on sale as of Dec. 1st only.

As a reminder, you can run with your 2008 vignette until the end of January 2009.

It's true, last year and I think the year before Denner were offering them for CHF35 with CHF100 of goods, beer and wine was OK but not hard liquor or cigs.
I remember that there was some debate on this as they were in fact discounting a tax, however they countered by saying that they bought the vignettes at the full price and were selling them with a CHF5 loss. They were able to continue with the offer but I wonder if it will work again this year?
Just wait a few weeks to see before buying your vignette at the "full price"

danm3 has become a little unpopular
Re: Car Vignette for 2009

I don't understand why people are being so hostile?

The OP asked whether there was the possibility of purchasing a discounted vignette from somewhere, and was then told yes you in fact can purchase one if you spend 100CHF at Denner.

Why do so many people find is so strange that the OP may want to know this?

Far too many clever clogs-type people on here

Thanks - this is very handy to know when you're south of the border.

Funny.
Some of the suggestions sound like those 'TOP TIPS' from the VIZ Magazine.
You remember the ones. Funny.

This has been very useful as we are leaving CH on 30-Jan and don't need to buy another Vignette.

You saved me 40CH which I can use to buy a few glasses of wine at the airport.

Merci
