Many thanks to 'robstersgirl' on MSE for this find.....

went to look at this Wii remote twin docking station
http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...tm#promotion_1
I noticed the offer at the bottom of the page (special offer 1) "Wii remote, nunchuk, wheel and docking station all under £30" when I clicked this and added to my trolley ,it came up as all items for £14.39 ,with a special offer saving of £14.99 deducted from the price.
Quite a good deal for the remote ,nunchuck,steering wheel , and docking station (which is £9.99 on sale alone).
Don't forget Quidco 1.5% I think.

---------------------

For those that are wondering, these are non-official remotes, nunchuks and wheels.

Just reserved mine BEFORE posting so i no i can get them!!!
#2
Thanks for that. one of my remotes doesn't work anymore so needed a new one. But i think u need the title as it say 2 wii remotes but the offer is just for one.
#3
It looks to me like what you get is one (non-Nintendo) Wimote and nunchuck; a double charging stand with two packs of batteries (Wimotes, as pictured, not included I presume); and a third party wheel. Not bad value unless it just has to be badged Nintendo.

Thanks! I reserved it but thought it was for 2 remotes.Is this a good deal then only being 1 remote im not sure?
#5
I think it's a good deal for the remote & nunchuck alone, never mind the other stuff. Have reserved 2, will see what the quality is like.

Remember it's not guaranteed...........the price may be more once you get in store if it's an error that they pick up on.

a) For products reserved online for store pick up or any other reservation service the price you pay is the price in store on the day of collection.
#8
This is HOT!!

Was loking for the docking station.....can sell remote and nunchuck on Ebay
#9
Had the battery/charger pack before. It was useless. Inside it's got AAA sized batteries (can't be changed). They're pretty low power, so they last only a few hours. Some folks are reporting they're dead after an hours use having been on a full night's charge. They also kept losing connection on my remote, which isn't helpful when you're playing games.

Fake remote and nunchuck though, all the ones I've seen in shops have been awful, felt like they were free in a happy meal they were so cheaply made, I'd rather get real ones that are well made and feel solid.


Mmmm Miley...

It shows at 14:39 but when i go to reserve it changes to 29:38 :(


If anyone is able to still do it, could they reserve me1 or 2 of the deal for berryden aberdeen store and sent me the reservation number id be very appreciative.

I reserved one yesterday at £14. Anyone any experience of ordering from Argos and if they honor the order price or if I will have to pay in full?

thats because its just adding up without taking the discount off!

actually reserve it & you get the "correct" total & also get that in the email as well.

hope it goes through as my boss was after a new remote but was going to pay £25 for it!
#16
It was £14 for me yesterday but £29 today so must have been fixed.
#17
this is a decent deal but I like the Wu controllers that are a tenner on fleabay.
#18
:) seems like a deal
#19
Me thinks the word wii compatible means not genuine wii stuff but compatible.....so me thinks price is not glitch

Even if it isn't, under £30 is well good for Wii stuff! I've often had unofficial controllers for other consoles before with no problems. Don't know if the technology is harder for third-parties to get right these days, though.
#21
ordered two lots of these from mansfield rosemary centre at 8.45am as it is only ten minutes down the road. when i went to pick them up the total on the prepay till was over £70 which is more than if you add the three prices on the website and multiply by 2. good luck to others but i wouldn't make a special trip.
let us know if its honoured today any body!?!
#22
Others have said the pre-pay till will show the full price anyway. You have to go to the till and maybe the manager will be nice and put it through as a price change, or maybe not.
#23
just been to argos in bath and it was coming up on till as £29.47. hot if anyone managed to get it
#24

It's expired, people have been to the store and are been charged full price.
#28
noticed that when you buy or reserve online, it defaults to 2 loads of docking station hence the £29+ price. Just alter the quantity from 1 to 2 to get £14+. Compatables are ok'ish for wii. Anybody who can grumble about this price for the 3 items are being over fussy. Argos should be made to honour this price, if it's their fault then they alone are responsible for false advertising.

I just failed to get it at Leicester City Centre store, manager was having none of it.

It works if you print off the reservation email and take this with you to store and go to till, they will honour it

When I went to pick mine up they said no but they did honour it once I showed them the reservation email on my phone.

This has worked on numerous occasions for me with various glitches, no probs with manager at all!
Should be UNEXPIRED!
#33
Why is this expired....it's still coming up as available for £14.39
#34
Unexpire PLEASE! Still showing online upto the manager in store-most are honouring!
#35
Not in Glasgow Sauchiehall St they didn't
#36
Wasn't honoured in Pontardawe Argos :(

Showed £14.39 on my reservation.
#37
sent the hubby as hes down that way hopefully manager will honour!! if not oh well worth a try lol x
#38
Was honoured in the Reading Oxford Road Store - looked dubious at one point but after a quick phonecall to someone (presumably to head office) manager put it through with no argument required.
#39
was also honoured in charlton store!! should be unexpired!!
#40
I can confirm this was just honoured in Swansea Pontardulais Road store, no issue. Showed them reservation print out, changed prices to match those on reservation.

Unexpire.
