Hi,

I was just looking at the Argos Sale and found these; Product Number: 875/2800

They are a set of three Banana Leaf Baskets (Brown). They were £14.99 and are now half price at £7.49. They are also on BOGOF.

However, when I added two to my basket (as instructed to get the BOGOF offer) it did not work, just added two at £7.49 each so £14.98 for two sets.

I was getting a bit annoyed at this point so decided to try and add another set to see what happened and to my surprise it then makes the total £4.99. So it comes to £7.49 for one set, £14.98 for two sets but just £4.99 for three sets? Odd!
It goes on to become £12.48 for four sets, £19.97 for five sets, etc. Most peculiar!

I have reserved three sets for £4.99 and I am going to "attempt" to pick them in a little while and I will report back as to whether they honour it or tell me to get stuffed!

:santa: Great spot!! Have just reserved 3 sets for collection tomorrow.
#2
9 sets = less than £15 :)
#3
keep us updated!

9.98 for 6 sets and 14.97 for 9 sets!
#4
I just ordered 3 sets off the website and had to pay £4.95 del, not bad though considering 3 sets with delivery is less than a tenner!

I got this message though:

Thank you for placing your order.

Unfortunately we cannot confirm your order straight away, but we will send you an acknowledgement email shortly (this may take a couple of hours during busy periods).

There is no need to re submit this order

Thank you for shopping at argos.co.uk

PLease note from the website:

This reservation relates to the item(s) only, not the price. The item(s) have not been paid for and the price you pay is the price valid in store when the goods are collected. This may result in the price being different, for example after a promotion that was valid at the time the goods were reserved has ended. Please take your reservation number to the store as you will need it to collect your item(s).

i always get that message when i place an order so thats nothing to worry about
#7
Thanks for the heads-up. Just ordered mine & they seem to have gone at the £4.99 for 3 sets. have printed my receipt out. Usually my Argos honours the e-mail, so fingers-crossed :)
#8
This is a similar issue to the XBOX 360 game thread at Argos, by adding different quatities up to 10 games can come up free, and the reservation email shows this. But once in store the quick pay machine refers you to the tills, and the tills charge full price (or in this case the true offer price).

Just unlikely to work unless maybe you convince them the email you have is correct and they are feeling generous!

I ordered three, let's see :)
Thanks

Comes up as zero like the recent 360 games post, unlikely to get if you reserve though maybe the chance if using the home delivery.. someone this morning tried to reserve and collect but the price was corrected instore
#11
Beat me to it :)

But anyway, how about 14 for free :)

tried this, when you collect it defaults to the correct price of 7.49 for 3, although you do get bogof still
#13
Just placed an order for 3 using home delievery hope they turn up. :thumbsup:
#14
Nice, but I have no use for them and it would only be a waste. shame.
#15
mine says 14.98 for two items? no bogof?
#16
put 3 in the basket

dont waste your time though

you now get an out of stock email
#17
I have 3 reserved in Argos Portlethen, hubby on his way to get them with e-mail in hand. Fingers crossed. Will report back.
#18
reserved 3 in epsom but came up at £7.49 each so no luck, still worth a try
#19
I just reserved 3 sets at £4.99 in Hull, collect tomorrow so lets wait and see. Always decline to buy if different.
banned#20
Well, it'll be another one to decline then. Out of stock email when ordering so save your time people, theres not much chance the store will let these go.
#21
just reserved some, but, can someone please tell me, what is BOGOF??

thanks

BOGOF (Buy one get one free) :whistling:
#23
buy one get one free, still is a good deal for 7.49 for two packs, the tills and self serve collection will default to correct price, so if you'll need to place two sets in your basket.
#24
Mostly because some people order too many and that caught their attention, so, better buy on a reasonable amount.
#25

rofl, it works for pretty much anything that is on a "buy two, save xx" "buy two for £xx" or "buy one get one free" on the argos website.

I've just ordered 7 sets of seagrass boxes (supposedly £15 each) for £0. I'm really not expecting to receive them, I just find it funny :)

Hi,

Just got back from Argos. Put my reservation number and it didn't work. The baskets went through as BOGOF for £7.49 for the two sets and £7.49 for another set so in total it was £14.98. I had my order confirmation so I went and spoke to someone but they won't honour the "reservation" as it is a pricing error. As I had not paid for the goods, they didn't have to do anything about it.

In the end I just got two sets for £7.49, which is still good. Not as good as three sets for £4.99!!

I guess if you ordered them and had home delivery the price would be £4.99 for three sets but if you reserve in store they will not honour them!

Ordered! Rated Hot! Available at Sutton Coldfield.
#31
No go I am afraid, came up full price instore, didn't honour e-mail, it does state that it isn't the price you pay.
Oh well worth a try!
#32
Wasnt honoured in Bexleyheath, Kent either! The manager was quite rude, so OH took his name etc. He said that it had been flagged as many people had ordered loads.

On our email it did state total price for 3 was £4.99.

VOTED COLD!! Dont waste your energy going to Argos.

Glad they honoured it. They would not honour mine. I had some snotty cow telling me that as I had not paid for the items, they did not have to do anything and that if I wanted them " I would have to pay the same as everyone else!" Charming!

I got two sets for £7.49 which is all I really wanted anyway but still, they confirmed the order, they should have honoured it.

Glad it is working for some people! :thumbsup:
#36
Had a reservation for 3 sets at 4.99 - but when I went to pick them up they came up at 14.97 for 3 sets. Got them anyway as I had been looking for similar for some time.
#37
Well done for spotting this I have ordered will see if I will get 3 sets on collection
#38
Derby also would not honour, so 7.49 for two sets but still a good deal :)
#39
Thanks For Letting Us Know How You Went On.
#40
if you get it delivered shouldnt they send you the 3 sets ?
