SEAT’S BIG WEEKEND GETS CHRISTMAS ALL WRAPPED UP  
 
Car buyers keen to get their Christmas shopping all wrapped up should look no further than their local SEAT showroom this weekend.
 
While opting to get your loved one a brand new car is a possibility for some, of course, SEAT’s ‘Big Weekend’ offers retail customers the chance to get their hands on a shiny new SEAT  AND get up to £400 towards the family’s festive celebrations in the shape of Marks & Spencer vouchers.
 
The SEAT Big Weekend, which runs between Friday 18 November and Sunday 20 November, sits alongside the current suite of retail offers which means it’s also possible to take advantage of the Spanish brand’s great ‘pay no VAT’ deals, too.
 
The easy-to-understand Big Weekend promotion means buyers can grab £200-worth of M&S vouchers for any retail order placed during the qualifying period. More than that, if they take out SEAT Finance at the same time they will qualify for another £200-worth of vouchers – which adds up to a very handy £400 ‘Christmas bonus’ from SEAT.
 
The great new deal applies at participating SEAT dealers nationwide, and cars ordered during the Big Weekend must be registered by 31 December 2011 to qualify for the voucher offer.
 
SEAT’s Big Weekend – which is strictly limited to retail orders taken between Friday 18 November and Sunday 20 November – underlines the brand’s determination to make its range of sporty, stylish and frugal models the market leaders in terms of value for money, too.
 
Add in the hugely popular ‘Pay No VAT’ campaign currently running on two of SEAT’s most popular models and that value proposition gets even more compelling. The VAT deal covers the stylish Ibiza 5dr 1.4 SE Copa supermini and the sporty Leon 1.6 TDI S Copa family hatchback.
 
With SEAT picking up the 20% tax bill, buyers choosing the Ibiza will pay just £10,699 RRP – a massive saving of £2,105 – while those opting for the Leon will pay just £14,909, saving a whopping £2,970. The ‘Pay No VAT’ offer is available to retail customers only, subject to status, and terms and conditions apply.
 
Announcing the Big Weekend offer SEAT UK’s new Head of Marketing, Chris Stevens, said: ‘The SEAT range is already connecting with UK car buyers like never before.  Sales records are tumbling and I’m sure this great Christmas bonus, in the form of up to £400 of M&S vouchers, will only attract yet more buyers to our dealers.’
