But beware of do not confuse the TV bonus with the separate TV scrapping bonus, corresponding to 20% of the purchase price of the new TV and up to an amount equal to 100 euros. There is no ISEE limit for this facility, but it will have a one-off application for each household – just like the TV bonus mentioned above – as long as an old device is scrapped, thus helping to lend a hand to the environment.
