I went into Argos today and bought £100 x 3 in vouchers. Each time I got a £10 voucher free (the deal that's on at the moment, previously mentioned on this site - thanks to the poster). So I ended up with £330 in vouchers for £300 cost to me. I then spent that on the Playstation 3 with two games and got ANOTHER £10 voucher. So you end up with a PS3 for £320 + you get a £10 Argos gift voucher.

Please note that when I first tried to buy the gift vouchers, the lady behind the till did not think that buying gift vouchers was included in the 'get £10 gift voucher for every £100 spent offer', but when I showed her a print out of the terms and conditions from the Argos Web site (http://www.argos.co.uk/static/StaticDisplay/tag/HP1_main1a/includeName/freegiftvouchers.htm) and pointed out that only buying gift vouchers with gift vouchers is excluded, she let me go ahead. You could also use this offer with the 40GB version, or indeed any product over £150.

If you are reserving the PS3 online, make sure you include two games (as one game - Heavenly Sword - is only shown on the 60GB PS3 special offer page). I got Heavenly Sword and Motor Storm (I know Resistance: Fall of Man is also an option).

Once again, thanks to the original poster who pointed out that Argos had a £10 gift voucher offer on.

With this Argos deal at the moment, if you buy a 60GB PS3, you have the option of buying Fifa 08 for half price, that's £19.99!

Even if you're not into Fifa 08, then you can just sell it to CEX who will give you £24.00 cash for it, making you a sweet £4!

Hope this is of use to someone :thumbsup:

I think what makes the 360 the ebst is the achievement system as well as the guide and all that friend stuff

Plus class games

Voted hot! I saw this in the other thread! only have to wait till I get back from holiday and I'll snag this deal. Heh anyone wanna buy an xbox360 used about 10 times in the last year?
#11
I did this same deal around 3 weeks ago, but got 3 games, of which I've sold two of them already.

It's pretty much the cheapest way of getting a 60g PS3.
#12
Just out of interest I was looking at this deal on the Argos website but could only see "Heavenly Sword" & "Fifa08" game options.

Even if I added these to the basket it didn't seem to add any discounts.

Any ideas how to pick a different selection of game and get the discount to give the 2 free games??

Apart from that good find !!

You have to search for PS3 games on the site and add them. Only certain games are in the promotion, including those I listed earlier. Keep trying different combinations. For the offer to appear you must have two games in your basket with the 60GB PS3 for the games to come up as £0 (only having one game will not trigger the offer). Hope this helps.
#14
Anyone seen a list of which games Argos have that qualify for this offer? I couldn't find it on the site (although experimentally adding pairs of games to the basket and seeing if the prices reduce to £0.00 works).
#15
Thanks for that ThatNameisTaken.

Will give it a go.

if i could get skate and call of duty 4 with it i'd buy tomo, guess this isnt the case though right?

I thought you could only use 1 Argos voucher per purchase?! If not, this is a great deal.

Cheers,

Pretty sure you can, infact i cannot see why you couldnt.
#21
Just thought that it might be cash only, cheers.
#22
The last time they did these vouchers I used a credit card so I cant see why you should'nt be able too on this occasion.

I managed to get a £150 rowing machine with £25 as a little sweetner, however the machine is now doing a great impression of a clothes stand!!

all the best

Cool! thats another 4% off then (cap one card). gonna try today for:-

60gb ps3
heavenly sword
formula 1
fifa 2008

£369.99 less £30 vouchers less £10 voucher less £13.60 (4%) = £316.39

Brilliant! Fingers crossed. Just wish my £50 free argos voucher from barclaycard was here too :giggle:
#27
This is a great deal. Its just a shame Argos dont do PS3 HDMI Cables, becuase you could of used the extra £10 gift voucher what you get when you buy the PS3 for it.

Im extremley tempted by this offer, and i feel like going to argos today and getting it. I was going to wait till boxing day, this has put me in a dilemma!!!

Does anybody know how much Heavenly sword would trade in for at Game or something?
#28
i have just seen this in the terms and conditions of the vouchers...

Excludes the purchase of gift vouchers using gift vouchers as a method of payment.

What does that mean?
#29
It just means u can't get free vouchers.

i.e. You spend £100 and get £110 in vouchers. Then use £100 of those vouchers to buy another £100 of vouchers so in total u would have had £120 in vouchers. Thus making £20

But it's not allowed. :giggle:
#30
Oh right. Im going to look like a right idiot going into argos and asking for 3 seperate transactions for £100 gift vouchers, and expecting £330 back in vouchers!

Im going to do it!!!! I have a Wii console with games, which are going for about £300 - £350 on ebay!

Just noticed Toyrus are selling HDMI cables for a tenner too!

Just got back from Argos and they were adamant that gift vouchers cannot be bought to get extra gift vouchers. So £100 = £100. The assistant said the computer system would no longer allow it.

In the end bought:-

60gb ps3
resistance FOM
formula 1
fifa 2008

£369.99 less £10 voucher less £13.60 (4%) = £346.39. Still happy with deal regardless.

Game on :-D
#32
Did this deal a few weeks back when they were giving three games with the PS3 for £349.

Got 3 x £100 vouchers getting £30 back. When I bought the console got another £10, so effectively cost me £309 (£349 - £40).

But the offer said any three games from the list, so I got 3 copies of heavenly sword (since they were worth the most cash traded in at CEX £22 cash at the time). Traded two games in getting £44 cash back

So £309 - £44 = £265 for a 60Gig PS3 + Heavenly sword !!

Should I not like the system I can easily get my money back me thinks by selling it on.
#33
Oh right, im having second thoughts now!
#34
i work at argos and it depends on the store and the manager, technically you can do the voucher scam, but if the manager sees it as a "scam", you wont get the free vouchers,
and plus if someone says the system wont allow it, its to get you outta tha store without you moaning!
#35
But surely Argos have to honour it if it says it in the terms and conditions???

Damn! The games need software 1.90 and box only has 1.50. The update site isn't working either!

Unbelievable how they do not even include a manual and can only be accessed online and not even downloaded :(

[SIZE=2]Does anybody know what amounts the gift vouchers come in? E.g. do they do £50 ones or are they made up of £20's & £10's?[/SIZE]

Anyone know how to do an offline PS3 system software update. I have tried putting v2.00 PUP file on a USB U3 Device and also on CDR but PS3 just states 'no applicable data found'.

My PS3 is effectively useless. Far from impressed so far.

Thanks.
