these little light and sound vehicles must have been on offer before c'mas {3 for 2} when they were full price £9.99.
now in the sale at half price, the offer is still on...... but the original price is being discounted. therefore instead of 3 for £20, it's now 3 for £5. great for unexpected birthday parties.......or like me if you're buying for c'mas 2008. just ordered online. grab a bargain.

You're going to have to add the £4.95 postage to this as the price will be corrected if you decide to go for store collection. Still a bargain and voted hot.
#2
surely you mean 3 for £10 if they're £5 each and 3 for 2.

oops my mistake they really are 3 for £5

might not honor it if you collect instore though
#3
nice find, have reserved 3, although I believe they will probably try and charge the proper price on collection. Great if your ordering online though. Voted hot!

halved it? mathematics not your stong point;-)

When I add this 3 times, the price drops down to £5 for 3 in my basket.
However, once I proceed to reserve online for instore collection, the basket shoots up to £15 reflecting the correct price.

Here are the details of the item(s) you have reserved.

dont understand your comment.....
if you saying it isnt 4.99 for 3 items then you are a numpty and why not base your comments on actually testing what has been said by adding 3 lots to a trolley and then see it show 4.99 for 3 items
#17
Heated,
Would be nice if we got these at the special offer price but not holding my breath. Have reserved some so will find out myself tomorrow.
#18
Just tried it again after clearing all cookies, and the price definately shows as
1 for £5, 2 for £10 and then 3 for £5 in the main basket page.
Once I try to reserve online for instore collection - the price on screen is £15.

I give up !!

I tried at one store & said £4.98. Tried another & said £14:98. Tried the 1st store again & still came up with the lower price.

When there was a similar misprice/offer after xmas with the banana baskets, I was still charged the full price when I went instore tho.:oops:

yep, just tried a dummy booking and your right, no longer working for store reservations. wouldnt worry, probably just saved you a trip to the store as those reserving these will pay the price instore on the day.

having said that some stores seem to take the reservation at the 3 for £5 price and some at 3 for £15. bit weird

well done, except if you had re-read as suggested they are going through at 3 for £5:roll: Sometimes i despair:p

Still working in the Bromley store when reserving for store collection.
#25
price reflects as £4.98 only if in stock. Reserved mine to pick up tomorrow - let's see if they honour the price:whistling:

ok for the person who cant do maths. This IS a misprice

yes it is 3 for 2, but 1 costs £5

3 for 2 means you PAY for 2 and got the third one free,

so whats 2 x £5? £10 thats what

and its charging you only £5, the reason it is doing this is because they have reduced the price but they have not changed the discount price.

so the 3for2 offer is noticing you have 3 and then taking off the price it has for 1 which is still set as £10, so they have basically changed the price of the item but not changed the discount price. so it is a MISPRICE

As at 18:28 on 15 january 2008 any order placed for home delivery gets the error message 'out of stock' with an option to request an E-mail when back in stock. I will do that and update you as to whether they will still honour the price as and when new stock arrives. The price for store collection reverts back to the 'correct' price of £4.99 each as opposed to the 3 for £4.99 available on-line (assuming they do honour the price). Please remember to allow for £4.95 postage - hence it is probably only worthwhile if you are ordering a quite a few (9 in my case).
#30
Just reserved these and went to collect instore. The price isn't honoured as the price comes up instore at £9.98 when using either the quickpay terminal or at the tills. So they are honouring the 3 for 2 offer but not the misprice on the website.

Argos have always been very clever to put the disclaimer on the reservation page stating that you pay the price it comes up at on the till and not the reservation price.

Still good if ordering online with other stuff though, and your wanting to stock up on gifts for others
#31
Thank you for using argos.co.uk Your reservation number is ***2821*** These will be held at the Glasgow Fort store until the end of Wednesday, January 16th 2008. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------Here are the details of the item(s) you have reserved.

i know there are some right numpties on this site......
#37
:)

Managed to reserve some for collection, will see what price I get charged

Just to let you know I reserved the now famous Beko LCD TV for £200 but when I went to collect the price was £299, showed the manager a copy of the reservation email and he honoured the price at £200 even though it had that disclaimer about the price

Lucky eh!!!
#38
ive used printouts from the websites to argue my case for a misprice in an argos store, got a camera, memory card and case for £48 when the camera cost £75 itself. the manager just checked the website to confirm, so i say its worth going to your local store to give this ago. but remember to take your screen prints etc.
#39
My local Argos has stock. Adding 9 to the basket comes up as £14.98... just for the curious! :)
#40
mine came up at £14.97 for three and out of stock in store sadly as would have been good to put away for next year.
