Do Argos offer cashback at tills? And is there a list of retailers that do?

I mean cashback in the old sense of the word, whereby you purchase an item and can get up to £50 cash at the till charged to your card.

Whenever I google cashback, things like Quidcc & TCB pop up instead!

Anyone know whether Argos offer the old-fashioned cashback & maybe a retailers list or rule of thumb?

Thanks

I think it's only the supermarkets that do cash-back ie Asda / Tesco etc etc

All cash machines on all high streets offer 'cashback' and available 24 hrs a day.

I've been offered it in a few shops that surprised me...but for the life of me I can't remember where...perhaps one was Debenhams?

It seems to depend on the person serving, I've had cashback from the most random places. Swimming baths and pub to name a couple. It seems most card machines can cope with it, its just whether the shop wants to lose its float.

I was offered cashback in 'spoons yesterday, went to the bar 4 times and was only offered it by the person who severed me last though
#6
Spar and Coop do as well

Halfords do , ( 2.5% I think ) automatically and instantly tracked when you use your registered Card /s. Pretty sure Argos don't .

But they don't pay you for withdrawing cash. Argos (Lloyds) do/would.

Thanks all :)

What do you mean by cashback? Do you mean getting your own cash out at the same time you make a purchase? Or are you looking for free cashback on a purchase as an incentive to buy?

If it is the former then why Argos specifically? Just go to a cashpoint.

Lloyds do an offer whereby they pay you 5% of your total purchase in a store (or 10/15%). Cashback is included. So you can "buy" or "withdraw" £50 cash from Argos, and Lloyds give you £5/£10 extra.

I don't think I have ever been offered cashback at argos, however I work at mccolls and we can give cashback but only if the customer asks, we don't ask them if they would like it but lots of people ask before buying anything if we do cashback and often just buy a sweet at 20p to get it. So it's worth asking at the till.

As an Argos employee I can tell you that they do not offer cashback at the tills

IIRC Co-op do so, and Spar as well

You have to be paying with a debit card to get cash back. I think it's mainly just supermarkets that ask if you want it, others don't ask so I assume they don't like to do it.
Stores won't allow you to 'draw' cash from your credit card.

plus i believe you can (or used to be able to) get cashback if overdrawn, whereas a atm wouldn't let you. not tried since chip and pin though so may have changed..

Wilkinson's do - They ask me every day and every day i say no!

most companies will if asked due to it saving the cost of paying money into the bank
