This is my first post so please bear with me. Argos are currently advertising on TV a 80gb PS3 with free accessory pack worth £34.99 and Gran Tourismo Prologue and Little Big Planet included for £299.97. But in todays Daily Mirror they have it advertised for £229.97. They list 2 order numbers to use to buy it instore but one of them comes up unrecognised and the other is in reference to a Xbox 360 game bundle. I went into the Middlesbrough store today with the paper and they honoured it. Bit of a mess on at the till but walked out with a bargain. Funny thing is though they had a massive poster in the window with the deal at £299.97!!!!

Doubt many managers will honour this deal.
#2
Did'nt deal with management, that was my fear. To be honest the women at the till did'nt seem the most clued up about the current prices of PS3s!
#3
Will try on the way home! Haven't voted yet!
#4

Which Argos branch in Middlesbrough?
The one in the dundas arcade - opposite sainsburys, or cleveland retail park on the trunk road?

I'm about to leave work (5miles from both), and would like to strike while the iron was hot !!

Thanks

How could this be posted a couple of days ago if the advert is in the Mirror today?
#14
Can confirm, just bought it. Manager wasn't overly happy, started muttering "invitation to treat..." but honoured it anyway.

What was, the advert from the mirror?!?! or the same advert they had in the mirror was up in store for £229.97?
#17

#18

#19
+ a £10 voucher?
#20
voucher ? how
#21
I doubt they will honour this price at many stores, because the price is advertised at £299.97 and so they can just tell you outright no!

Yes but it is their own advert within the Mirror that has the price advertised at £229.97 that is what will attract people into the store to buy it, who is to say that it is an error? Its not a print error in the Mirror, it is the advert in the Mirror printed as Argos intended it, whether or not the advertiser incorrectly printed the price.

Argos cannot blame the Mirror for the price mess up if it is an error, and challenged I think they would be forced to have to honour the price.

The deal was advertised in store on posters I believe.

As you rightly said, the advert was released today.

I am sorely mistaken. My appologies! should read more and look less. Good spot!

In store posters list it as £299.97. Just been on TV again at that price, TV ad also says offer ends Tuesday.

just bought .one. manager was shocked and said it should be the 40gb for 299.99. im very happy
heat added
#27
I just tried my luck and an e-mail was produced from head office stating it was a misprice due to the paper & that they won't be honouring the price. Well done to those who managed to grab one at that price - absolute bargain.
#28
Tried in Lincoln tonight,no joy.They rang head office they said it was a misprint so would not honour it.
#29
Damn just reserved 2 at different stores just in case. Doubt theyll honour it now :-(
#30
Just been to the argos in tamworth and they knew it was a misprice but were quite happy to honour it, Didn't really have the cash but couldnt pass on a deal like this. Thanks to the OP for highlighting this. Now just got to convince the mrs that we really needed one of these :-D
#31
As some people are still having some luck, I might try another local Argos
#32
Im really suprised they honour it, as they are not legally obliged to sell item at an advertised price...suprised managers dont know this, but then it good for us if anyone get it!!!

I recommend bypassing the manager and just go to the most unsuspecting looking person on the tills. Thats what I did.
