One to remember, considering currys/dixons often have crazy delivery charges.Im surprised it has taken this long for this service to arrive. PC World (the sister company) has had it for over a year.

If this works like Argos then it will be very useful, as it is very difficult to get through to speak to someone at a store.
I wonder if the online prices will apply, like for PC software at PC World?

It states that you will pay the price advertised online :)

No, they're for home delivery only. It says when on the basket screen. I'd quite like to reuse the £20 voucher I used last week again on the item I'm still waiting to be delivered so I could go collect it today. It's in stock and I'm going into town anyway. :-(

effing & jeffing

Almost certainly not, because you pay in store and not online. No harm in clicking through quidco when you order something though.
edit: And quidco's up to 3% now, so that might cancel out the saving of collecting in store even if you can't find a free delivery coupon!

Hopefully they will run it the same as PC World, Quidco offer 6% for online sales and 3% for collect @ store items. It works as I've previously received cash back on Collect @ store items at PC World..

I got a brand new appliance online for £191 instead of £266 instore . It arrived damaged & I had murder with them to get it taken away . I went instore with the print out to see how far i could get with haggling . They said they would honour the online prices to include any vouchers , when I produced the print out you should have seen their faces drop . I argued that the price on the print out should be the price as that is what they were letting it be sold for . The greatest line ever was then quoted to me to deny , it was " you want us to lose our profit margin on the cooker ? " I laughed & walked away , went next door to Comet & got the same one for £60 less than Currys store .

Another thing to bear in mind over reserve & collect , check that it isn't damaged before you take it away . Try to tell them it is damaged after YOU took it home , they don't want to know .

From the T&C's:

All Reserve & Collect sales take place in our stores. Sales are therefore subject to our usual in-store Terms and Conditions and the Manager’s discretion.



Apply your vouchers online , reserve & collect , , they'll tell you to go away when you arrive or " sorry Sir , no stock available " .
#10
Oh , I can see trouble ahead with this & pricing policies .
#11
We have been briefed that all the prices are going to be standardised. Online and store prices will be the same.

Having said that, you can always negotiate deals on larger items in store anyway.

What about voucher codes then ?

That's what I tried to do , you know the rest of the story .

Negotiate what against what ?

Online versus instore prices ?

If you say that they will match the online price then why are Currys discriminating against people who aren't aware of the differences in prices because they have no internet access ?

I was instore a few months back , an old couple were looking to buy a TV , it was £235 higher instore than the online price . When I told them of this in front of the salesman he wanted me removed from the store by the security guard because I jeopardised his sale . I told him to price match , he refused , he lost the sale .

Curry's ethics for you there !!

No idea about vouchers, sorry.

Yep - Online vs Store.

I don't understand why they were different anyway, to me it makes more sense for them all to be the same.

I am not sure what was going on with that sale, but it sounds wrong to me, and you do have a point with the price match.

I'm not sales so I am not sure what kind of deals can be worked out, but, with price match, I would imagine they have no choice to match their online prices.

Hopefully they WON'T run it like PC world...hopefully when you turn up for your reserved goods they will actually be there!!!:giggle:

Remains to be seen doesn't it? I suppose a lot of it depends on the store in making sure the stock is moved off the sales floor.

The only online reserve style thing that will ever work properly in my eyes is Argos'. With all stock just been in a stockroom, it can't be accidentally put on the shop floor or sold, as the system allocates one unit to reserved.

What i mean is do i go into the store armed with the print out of the online price & start haggling ?

Do I go into the store & start haggling about it being cheaper elsewhere ?


The only way this will ever work will be for online prices to be instore prices , complete transparency in all costings .

There is a deal going on with certain goods from Curry's online via discount codes , one item has a reduction of nearly 33% from the store price .

No you shouldn't have to haggle now as you can just pick up instore, just like PC World does currently.

spladam means if you are buying a big item you can usually barter a bit instore with a sales person. Sales are on commission (generally speaking) so they have room to move especially by throwing in high mark up items like a computer bag.

Didn't they have a 1p TV stand not long ago? Their delivery charge was over £15 IIRC :)

Either that wasn't their policy last year, or I should have queried something. :( I guessed they couldn't properly track whether I collected in store and didn't expect cashback.

You can't apply your vouchers online if you choose collect in store. Try it.

Only one place to buy TV's unless you really find a bargain.

And that's John Lewis. Every TV comes with free 5 year guarantee and they price match.

And I can vouch that they honnor the guarantee as I have recently used it on a nearly 5 year old TV.

Totally disagree with that statement unless you get them to price match , even that is becoming more & more difficult due to the stupid terms & conditions they now ask for .Their TV's are £100's dearer that most other places so the idea of a free 5yr guarantee is nonsense because its built into the price .

I believe you , best to apply vouchers online & get the delivery charge removed with the appropriate voucher code .
