    Why don't Argos just give Barnados some toys? These schemes where businesses increase their sales under the guise of helping charities are shallow in the extreme.

    Was waiting for this after last year so thanks for the heads up. Not so much for the voucher tbh, my 6 year old liked doing this last year and its a good opportunity as a parent to chat about how some kids actually live without being too full on. Heat added.

    So can you take any toy or does it have to be several? So you could take one toy in each day and get multiple vouchers? How does it work?


    Would you really want to do that ?

    I think most people who do this won't care much about the voucher, even if they did abusing the system is the last thing they'ed want to do, its for a good cause !


    If that were the case, why mention the voucher at all? Not trying to be a dick, but it's a deal site for saving money, not a charity.

    Totally. Think most children actually enjoy doing this as well, they like the feeling of helping others. Know people are really busy these days but it's a great scheme imo.

    Good way to clear out some toys my son has outgrown and help others too

    I needed 2 vouchers for my daughters last year and took in 2 rather nice toys (both cost me over £40 each) - the lady at the till said I could only have one voucher. Although I wanted to give as much as I could, I took the second toy back the next day and got my other £5 voucher...

    Indeed Argos are profiting from this even through advertising alone so let's not pretend everyone is in it for the good of their hearts otherwise you'd just send the toys to Barnados yourself along with a donation. Barnados will still be getting the same amount of donated toys but Argos will either give me one £5 voucher or several. Does anyone actually know the answer to my question?

    Thanks DM24 - as I thought.

    you can go back with a toy each day to get a voucher every day but only one voucher can be used per transaction (and only when you spend £35) I think that's what it means, hope that helps
