“The lead up to Christmas is obviously a great opportunity to sell digital imaging products, with camcorders and digital cameras often high on customers’ festive season wish lists,” said Sony Australia’s marketing manager for digital imaging, Yasunari Nishioka.

“With an exceptional choice of models, colours, formats and styles, together with the cash back offer and significant marketing support, Sony’s digital imaging range will deliver results for our retail partners.”

Sony has prepared POS and online material to help communicate the promotion to customers. Ina statement today, Sony Australia advised that it will run “significant advertising campaigns” for the Cyber-shot and Handycam categories during this time.

The promotion requires customers to register online, then send in their registration form, bar code and receipt to redeem their cash back voucher.
