Seen this in my local store about a month back when there was a previous thread on here.

Bought one for a mate and I have to say he wasn't impressed with the box's condition but the contents were new but I'd rather pay the extra £20 and buy a new one.

The box also had celotape on one side so I presume it had been opened before I bought it.

From old threads on here, Argos "Manager's Specials" are machines that have been returned by other customers either as they don't work in the customers' eyes or generally under their 14 day return scheme; hence why the box looked as though it had been opened.

Hope this helps!

It's 30 days now, and yes they are excluded.

so how can these be returns if these are excluded ?

From the look of the stock Argos had in, I would not have thought these were returns. They had "manager's specials" on several other electrical items, including lcd tv's at half-price (one was £75 inc. built in freeview). All the boxes looked to be in perfect condition, so I assumed they were simply trying to shift stock to either clear space or make targets.

My local Argos always has a large display cabinet of 'manager specials', wii's, tom toms, cameras, mp3 players, ipods and a few other things. I know for a fact that the ipods (also excluded from the 30-day return) are customer returns from Argos or even elsewhere, I can only presume customers return them claiming that they are faulty in order to get round the 30-day return. They are then sent off to a company that does a refurbish which usually just means they just check they are clean and working and replace any missing accessories. They're great and I've bought many of them. In the case of the manager special Wii's, judging by the number on sale I suspect they are not Argos returns but rather a special purchase from the distributor where the packaging isn't perfect and that would explain why people have reported that the contents look untouched. Worth buying in my opinion to save £20 since Argos will exchange if you get landed with a duff looking one particularly since the 30-day exclusion is not mentioned at point of sale since they have no catalogue entry and unique catalogue number.
