Been looking for good PS3 deal, with my local blockbuster out of PS3's thought id go for this one.

Basically the PS3 package has been reduced from £424.99 to £349.96 at Argos.
With the current deal on vouchers if you buy £300 worth of vouchers you will get £30 of vouchers free leaving you to pay £19.96 which comes to - £319.96!

Choice of games are, Motorstorm, Formula 1, Ridge Racer, Resistance Fall of Man and Heavenly Sword

Reserve online and pick up in store or just order in your local store as you get vouchers.

Sorry should have been clearer, You have to buy £100 worth of vouchers 3 times as you get £10 each time giving you £330 worth of vouchers in total at a cost of £300.

you will if you buy 3 separate £100 vouchers.


you cant split a full price of 349.99 into 3 100 pounds.
#5
lufc246 ... Buy 1x £100 voucher (to get £10 free) then do this twice again lol
#6
three people all typing at the same time lol
#7
You'll get £330 buying 3 x 100 then another £10 back on purchase (£19.96 balance to pay)... and a voucher for spending the vouchers, so £319.96 for a 60gb ps3 (if you can find stock locally) 3 first party games, and a tenner voucher = a bargain.
If it's not in stock it's not a major differance compared to blockbuster & gamestation whom are doing 3 games at £349 (bb) and 2 game 2 movies for £349 (GS).
It's the vouchers that make this such a superb deal, but don't forget no cc protection on the purchase, and a refund in vouchers if it goes back.
Might be worth checking stock of games as well online as HS is likely to sell faster than the others due to being newer + having better sell prices.

If you buy 3 separate £100 vouchers you get 3 £10 vouchers = 330 plus the difference as op says.

#11

#12

Not sure why not, looking at their T & C's

Nearest thing is "Excludes the purchase of gift vouchers using gift vouchers as a method of payment. "...no mention of not purchasing gift vouchers with cash!!
#16
Last time this offer was around, people said they wouldn't provide you with the £10 voucher if you used it to buy vouchers, so you need to actually buy products.
#17
The 60GB PS3 has PS2 backwards compatibility but if like me you prefer a system that eats up less power, runs cooler and more quietly, the newer 40GB model is the better purchase even though it doesn't have PS2 BC.
#18
In an e mail from Argos they do stipulate :

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

Now that would have been a good scam ! Could have spent the day in Argos buying vouchers and collecting vouchers !
banned#19
So can someone confirm - will this or will this not work?

1. Can i get the vouchers?
2. If so, can those vouchers be used against this deal?
#20
If you are able to get free vouchers for buying vouchers in cash....

Buy 3 x £100 vouchers -> £300 paid-for vouchers + £30 bonus vouchers
Buy 1 x £50 voucher -> £50 paid-for vouchers + £5 bonus voucher

Net result = paid £350 for PS3 + £35 of vouchers left = PS3 for £315
banned#21
Wait this doesnt make sense.

If i buy 3 x £100 voucher and 1 x £50 voucher.

That means ive spent £350 plus the additional bonus vouchers = £35 giving me a grand total of £385.00 to speand.

So when i go and buy this PS3 with 3 games deal that means i bag the PS3 for £315.00

Now when i bag this PS3 for £315 - does that mean i will get an extra £30 back as i've technically spent £315 in one go, or is there some way that Argos knows i got m BONUS vouchers already?

From the Argos website

"Please note that the purchase of Argos gift vouchers is excluded from any promotional offers on Argos.co.uk. "

Therefore, you will not get the gift card for the purchase of the vouchers, you will only get a £10 gift card for the purchase of the console package, reducing the overall price to £339.96

You might be right, but I don't think that the 40GB PS3 runs any cooler or more quietly than the 60GB version, and it doesn't eat up less power either.
#25
What am I doing wrong?
I put the 4 items in my Argos basket and it is showing as £439
It does not reduce the price.

Help please?

EDIT.
Think I was using wrong special offer. In mine doesn't give choice of Heavenly Sword
#26
I've already posted this in the Wii thread but just to confirm you do get the free gift vouchers when you buy vouchers. When you purchase £100 voucher the till tells them to give you a £10 voucher. So don't bother asking the cashier and if you do and they say you won't get one they are wrong. I've bought 2 x£100 and 2 x £50 today and received 2 x£10 and 3 x £5 free.
#27
The choice of games fwhen I go to the Argos site is limited to


Resistance Fall Of Man - PS3 568/3776
£39.99
Motorstorm - PS3 568/3769
£39.99
Formula 1 Championship Edition - PS3 568/3745
£39.99
Ridge Racer 7 - PS3 568/3738
£39.99

Back to the drawing board as the only game my kids would want from that choice is Motorstorm

Therefore, you will not get the gift card for the purchase of the vouchers, you will only get a £10 gift card for the purchase of the console package, reducing the overall price to £339.96

having worked at argos previously, I know that you can purchase the vouchers and get a free £10 voucher. The system will allow it to go through.
Most of the cashiers are a bit dull (generally - dont take offence now!) and many don't care, so will allow the purchase to go through. This is particularly the case at the weekend where there are part-time and temporary members of staff. Most shouldn't have a problem buying these vouchers.

Not sure why so many people are getting confused with this deal, it is straight forward.

You buy £100 of vouchers for £100 in cash. You get your extra £10 voucher = £110.

you do this three times and you have £330 for £300.
Add another £20 and you have your £350 to make the purchase.

good deal! Heat and rep added :)
#29
still not worth it :)
#30
buying vouchers cleary not part of promotion as it does state it. Unless cashier stupid enough to give you one. cold
#31
If this does work what's the money back offers like at places like Game/Blockbusters fort them games as it would be for the kids for Xmas so they wouldn't be interested really in them games?
#32
Has this deal expired already?
'cause I can't see it anywhere on Argos site.
#33
I've tried adding them to the trolley and the total comes up £469.93

Can anyone tell me what is going on as the promotion for the offer is on the Argos Home page
