First post so hopefully done this correctly.
Came across this by accident. Grand theft auto 4 (xbox 360) Is coming up as £17.59 for 1 copy but when you get to the basket at checkout and change the quantity to a multiple of 2 it means it works out at £10.50 per copy.
Also Sega mega drive ultimate collection (xbox 360 + PS3) has a similar glitch. £17.59 for 1 copy, change the quantity to a multiple of 2 it means it works out at £15.00 per copy.
You can pick and mix between games that are £17.59. A leftover from the 2 for £30 days??
Also here's something interesting. If you play around a bit you'll find a few other combo's.
e.g. GTA 4 (£17.59) + Call of duty 4 modern warfare (£29.99)
= £33 when bought together (xbox 360)
Hope someone can make use of this.

Hi
Thanks for posting. I have added an image to your post.
This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/339941/how-to-post-and-host-images-for-thr/

Bizarrely, FEAR 2: Project Origin - PS3 shows at £17.59 but x 2 = £30.

Hmmm... anyone fancy checking the entire Argos games range? :)
#7
Thanks for sorting the image.
I was planning to go through the entire range of games and then I wondered if it would work with large screen tv's as well....Unfortunately not
#8
don't get your hopes up too much guys, unless you're willing to pay for the p&p, then may be a slim chance of getting any "glitch" prices from Argos, but for collect in store as the shops are now closed, they'll probably rectify this "glitch" tonight (is it even a glitch? as some of these games were available as 2 for £30 a few months back), so when you get to the store tomorrow, the same excuse "oh it a pricing error head office sent a memo notice down, the price you pay is the price in store that day etc etc", wasted journey & all that.
#9
It's also working with prince of persia xbox 360 and tomb raider underworld.
I've had similar glitches on the argos site before. They had a protein powder one a while ago which was on half price and buy one get one free online. It gave me 4 tubs of protein powder for 9.36. The manager honoured it when I picked up my items locally. Can't comment on delivery items
#10
Yeah you can pick and mix between most of the games that are £17.59 and get them for £30, which for Terminator: Salvation isn't bad.
#11
Ive reserved this and going to hopefully pick them up now.Will post up what happens later.
#12
How about this?

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X - PS3. 566/8715 comes up as £17.59 but in the checkout it shows £3.81!!!

although it's a pretty rubbish game IMO

Also found Skate 2 - PS3. 566/7967 x 2 @ £21.40

After AGES filling up a virtual shopping basket (£905.08) I discovered that the following all show £17.59 but in the checkout are actually £12.41 for single units only.

Topspin 3 ps3
Tomb Raider Underworld - PS3. 566/1073
LEGO® Star Wars Saga - PS3. 900/5161
Colin McRae DiRT - PS3. 568/4555
BioShock PS3 - 18+. 568/9914
Gran Turismo Prologue - PS3. 568/4201
Saints Row 2 PS3 - 18+. 568/9691
Far Cry 2 PS3 - 18+. 566/0926
Motorstorm Pacific Rift - PS3. 566/1028

Dont hold your breath though as I am sure they will suss this out soon.

Anyhow, some of these titles aren't worth it either - but may suit some people.

H+R to OP for bringing this to the table.
#14
Seems to work for all Xbox games with £12 off that are in the 2 for £30 deal, there doesn't seem to be much stock about though, GTA has sold out for home delivery too.
#15
people, just make sure you compare prices across the 'net first, as even with 2 for £30 & other offers most of the Argos titles are still more expensive than many online prices.
#16
Take a printout of your Argos email you receive, as this will be helpful to prove the price reduction.
They still might refuse to sell at that price depending on how nice the manager is.

Absolutely 100% agree with that.

I do it as second nature personally.

Just retried that one and it's back to a ridiculous £17.59 I am afraid... they've rumbled us guys. :whistling:

This is old news. Argos pricing has been screwed up and doing things like this just about forever. 99 times out of 100 the bugged items are still more expensive than other places/more than they're worth.

the worse thing they would honour the glitch as they still would be making profit on this
#21
Nice spot :thumbsup:

Though...

Ultimate Mega Drive Collection:

£12.99 on PS3

£12.99 on 360

I tried this with a couple of games last week and when I put my res number in the self service kiosk it told me I had to go to the checkout where I was then told full price..

May I ask whether the items were age restricted? I have more luck with the kiosk when they aren't restricted, but when I bought GTA and a stepladder I had to go to the checkout. Luckily they honoured that particular GTA price glitch.
#24
i put skate 2 and gta iv in the basket both on ps3 and gta iv came out at £3.81 and skate 2 was full price but out of stock so will try and blag it tomorrow

Well, considering that the OP has only been a member since September and you're an old timer since 2007, I think the guy has posted a decent offer.

Let's face it, we've all seen some dag posted on this site in the past, myself being guilty of that one before. :whistling:

Just got back from argos got the two for £21.

Come up at the tills for £17ish and two for £30 but then adjusted it for me ,no questions asked.
#27
i have booked 2 copies of GTA from my local argos one ps3 one 360

but these are age restricted products son dont think the pay kiosk will accapt them
#28
Nice to hear you got them. enjoy
#29
No have to pay at the counter,the fast pay wont accept it cause of age restriction.
#30
i can't get it to work, have they fixed the glitch?


edit: still working for grand theft auto 4 and that is on home delivery but i dont want an 18 certificate game.

[SIZE="3"]Grand theft auto 4 (xbox 360) and sega mega drive ultimate collection(xbox 360 and PS3) plus others, glitch at argos + quidco etc. Available for store pick up or delivery (£5.80)[/SIZE].


The title is misleading, as you can't buy GTA 4 for £10.50, it's £21 for two copies.
#32
cant see them honouring them as on the emails says prices only applires to those items that are bought in offer, ie tried skate oos and tried gta with both platforms

so i got one email for ps3 skate and gta and one for the same games on 360 but cant see them honouring them
#33
I went a month ago with the same title for £3.81 ! along with pro street for £17 (full price)

Went therr with a print out email, gave them my reservation number. Guy said out loud the FULL PRICE. I insisted he should ask his manager because its wasted my journey when it clearly says £3.81. Manager said NO WAY and i stood my ground still. Manager then called there head office and head office said i must of had it in the basket for a long time when th eprice was £3.81 but now its not £3.81. What a load of old crap.

So i would say dont waste your time trying to get cheap games because they will refuse you. And im pretty sure they cant 'ADJUST' the price as mentioned above by someone.

it should but

Get 2 copies for GTA 4 for £21 @ Argos (Collect in store) (delivery is £5.80) due to system glitch, many others available and don't forget your quidco

Apologies if the title comes across as misleading. Remember this is my first post.

As I mentioned earlier I have took advantage of these kinds of offers before and they have been honoured. Yes maybe it does come down to the manager of the store you go to but at least one person on here has gone for this and they didn't have a problem.
#37
will try tomorrow and see what happens

Same glitch was posted with other games and discussed in depth just less than two weeks ago...
