I doubt it, I'm sure most, if not all branches have now been told not to give vouchers over when gift vouchers have been purchased. I think it's also excluded from the promotion in the T&C
#16
I have a gift card which was issued when I took a faulty tv back for £179.99. Could I buy another new £100 gift card with this and claim the £10 voucher?
#17
Thanks going to take a kettle back to argos anyway so this will come in handy when i get another one.
#18
That is correct, robot1000. Also, you cannot buy a gift card with a gift card.

If you buy online, you will get a voucher code about 12 digits long. In store we can only physically input codes that are five digits long.

Also, I'm not sure about home delivery. Some stores have the old till system and some have the new. For most stores, it will be their first gift card promotion with the new tills. Ours only got installed a couple of weeks ago so it will be the same for us. With the old till system, if the customer spent £95 on a home delivery item and got the delivery added on, it would give them a £10 gift card as the transaction amount would be over £100. I've no idea if it will be the same with the new tills.

I should say though that you aren't entitled to a free gift card if it's the delivery charge taking the transaction over £50/£100. It has said that in the small print as long as I've worked there. Around 3 and a half years.
#19
Though it's excluded in the terms and conditions - the purchase of a £100 gift card WILL result in the till creating a free promotional £10 gift card.

Whether or not you receive it will entirely be down to whether or not the till operator cancels it.

They were slack last time - with many members of staff not being briefed properly. If you're gonna try it, best chance is on a weekend, or weekday EVENING for part-time staff (and as near as possible to the beginning of the promotion so that staff may not have been told).

but remember: GIFT CARDS CANNOT BE PURCHASED WITH GIFTCARDS! tills won't allow it and an alternative method of payment will be required.

With the old till systems, yes. I'm not sure with Retail-J. Maybe it's been sorted. Unless you can confirm it hasn't.
#21
If I spend £50 (30+some nectar points) would I still qualify? ...
#22
Yes. Whether you use £50 or £100 worth or more or less.
#23
anyone got a free p&p code ? thanks
#24
Cheers for the heads up.
#25
If I go and order something for £110 for home delivery and get the £10 voucher, can this be redeemed straight away as I also need something for £25 - or does the voucher only start from a certain date after you are given it? thanks
#26
ellielou,

You can use the voucher straight away, but not in the same transaction.
#27
So, if I spend 49.99 and the by something for 1p, what happens then? Do I get a 5, or 10 pound voucher? And what happens if the thing I was buying was WORTH £100 and I only paid £50 for it. Would I get 5 or 10? And if I stole something, what about then?

I would assume that if you stole £50 worth of stock then you will be entitile to steal a £5 gift voucher on top of that and similarly with £100 worth of stock, depends if they pay notice to the small print really :roll:
#29
Another question for the wise few. IF I order my new washer instore will I still get the £10 voucher ? as big goods are home delivery only i am unsure . would prefer instore ordering now so I can get a general instore voucher , dont want to have to use a online only voucher due to delivery costs.

shame you cant pay for items online and then pick up instore. would make the online voucher a little more worth while. would still get quidco that way to :P
#30
Yes, teraomi. You will get a physical voucher that can be used in-store. The only thing that is excluded is purchasing a gift card.

Little helpful post for ya'll. If what you're buying is just shy of the £50/£100 requirement, you can either buy something little like batteries or if you're feeling generous, donate to our chosen charity - The British Heart Foundation.

On the bottom of the selection form (the thing you write down the catalogue numbers on) there is a little box that can be ticked. It says something like "I would also like to donate 20p to The British Heart Foundation". Tick that and the cashier will see that you want to add 20p. It doesn't have to be 20p. though. It can be whatever you like.

P.S. That applies to in-store only. AFAIK, you can't add a donation to your order online. I have to go to work shortly but if someone wants to try, the catalogue number is 981/0758.

[EDIT]I will also say that if you have to return part or all of your order and the refund takes the total amount under £50/£100, you need to return the gift card, too. If you don't, we have to refund you minus the value of the gift card. If we didn't, customers could buy something for £100, return it and be £10 up and they'd keep doing that.

I got something thing from argos a while back online, and received online £10 e-voucher with short use by date date.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to use it instore, so had to bear in mind P & P when ordering online. In the end it expired before I could use it! :-(

You get the voucher straight away. In-store, if you pay at a till the cashier will give you one straight away or if you pay at a Quick Pay kiosk, you will get the voucher when you pick your item(s) up at Collection.

And yes, it can be used in conjunction with other offers.

@ teraomi: No problem. :)

i too had a faulty telly from argos all they give you is a gifytt card even though the tv was less than 24 hrs old since we brought it we had receipt evrything

DONT BUY FROM ARGOS THE REFUND POLICY ISNT WORTH THE PAPER IT IS WRITTEN ON
#36
caroline072,

Of course, I cannot speak on behalf of the store you got the refund from, but the only reasons we would refund onto a gift card if a receipt is presented is:

A) A gift card was used to pay for the whole order.

B) Another reason would be if you bought multiple items and paid with various tender.

So for instance. You buy a kettle at £29.99 and a microwave at £39.99, and paid with a £29.99 voucher and the rest on your card. You then return the kettle for whatever reason wanting a refund. What the cashier should do is refund £29.99 back onto the card it was purchased with. So if you return the microwave later, £29.99 would be refunded onto a gift card and the remaining £10 onto your bank card.

C) The final reason (that I can think of. Getting quite late, ya know) is that you returned the item but violated the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. The 30 Day Money Back Guarantee is in place so you can return the item(s) in its/their unused, original condition - with the receipt if you don't like it/wrong colour/wrong item etc. If that's the case and you did violate the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee, then the store was under no obligation to refund you that TV but did so in good faith. Unless of course, it was faulty. In that case the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee would not apply.

But like I said. I cannot speak for the store but they're the reasons I can think of right now that a refund would be placed onto a gift card.

Ok Gamerfreak, maybe u can answer me this - I recently purchased a Sony DVD Recorder from Argos for £149.99 but was told that it could not be returned for a refund, only returned if it was faulty. Why do Argos incorporate a non-refundable policy on specific items?
1 Like #38
If it has a HDD, that would be why. It holds end-user information. Specifically audio and video. We (Argos) aren't to know what's on there if it gets brought back.

If it doesn't have a HDD, then I'm afraid it's one of the products that perplexes the staff. Myself included. :$

When the cashier types in the catalogue number into the till, it comes up with a very brief product description. Like a Sony DVD Recorder, for example. All it would tell us is that it's a Sony DVD Recorder. Rarely gives us the model number or anything in respect to specs or colour.

Underneath the brief product description there is a box where bulletins can go. Every bulletin a product has has to be read out to the customer. Examples include "Item is bulky", "Item is over 20KG" or, in your case "This item is excluded from the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. This does not affect your statutory rights". Unfortunately, it never gives a reason. Things like MP3 players and toilet roll holders are pretty self-explanatory, but things like a DVD Recorder that doesn't have a HDD get a bit confusing if the customer queries it. One way to find out if no Managers in-store are sure, is for us to give a call to Store Support - basically a customer service line for stores only. Or, if you wish, you can contact customer services directly.

To answer it briefly, if it holds end-user information (mobile phone, MP3/MP4 player) or has something to do with personal hygiene like a toilet brush, earrings or personalised jewellery then we cannot put it back on the shelf and sell to another customer. That's why things that aren't excluded such as mirrors or table lamps we can put back onto the shelf. As long as they're returned unopened. Although, ironically, we do always have to check inside the box to check that the correct item is in there as well as being returned unmarked as the person returning the goods could've filled it with something else. IE catalogues. Happened before, the cheeky swines!

Of course, if they're faulty, we send them off.

Hope that helps.

That is really useful info Gamerfreak and explains why my digital camera was excluded from the 30 day returns policy too.

Now whether we agree with it, that's another matter altogether....!:roll:

Thank you.

And you wouldn't be agreeing or disagreeing with me, but my employer. I'm just a pawn in their game! :lol:
