SYDNEY, NSW: LG Electronics has joined the promotions rush with the announcement of a range of offers to coincide with this week’s release of its 2010 TV range.

LG will offer consumers a 3D bonus pack, a Blu-ray home theatre system or a 22-inch HD LCD TV with every purchase of selected TVs.

The 3D bonus pack, which includes two pairs of 3D glasses and a Fujifilm 3D digital camera (RRP $1,097), is of particular interest because LG had previously announced that, unlike its competitors, it will not be packaging any 3D glasses with its new range.

The Blu-ray home theatre system included in the promotion is valued at RRP $699, while the 22-inch HD LCD TV comes at RRP $499.

This promotional move is an important step for LG after the company, despite being second-to-market after Samsung, were well behind other suppliers in launching its 2010 TV range while targeting much higher price points with its premium launch models selling for RRP $5,199 and $4,099.

LG’s new promotion is valid for purchases made between 17 May and 11 July 2010 and redemptions can be made online at

The final date for all redemptions to be claimed is by 30 July 2010.
