Just picked this up at Argos Rochdale for £18.99, on thier website this is £68.49, it was reduced to half price recently but has been increased back to the full price now. Anyway this afternoon, in rochdale branch I couldnt believe my eyes when i saw this on display as clearance with lots of other vacs. My beady eye spotted the brand and the model whilst the price tag & catalouge no was for the Pro Action CJ985 1600W Bagged Cylinder Cleaner cat no 406/2587

This was not a misprice on this particular box because they had placed a sticker with this catalogue no over the correct catalogue no for the vax as well as a separate clearance sticker displaying the price. Confused! well so am I. I grabbed it took it to the tills and it scannned in at £18.99..Happy Days! Now the ginger kid at the check out did tell me that this maybe a different colour to the one advertised, well as long as it 'sucked' i didnt care. bought it home and its in fact white & green instead of grey & green as pic . They had more in stock. Maybe this is the reason for the reduction due to the colour misdescription as this came up on the screen at the checkout. who knows..good luck.. If i were you i would reserve the pro-action ones and when they arrive for collection, they could be the vax boxed ones, there were certainly two more on display at Rochdale. oh and the reciept does state pro action..maybe warranty issues, but at this price who can argue

Was it wheatsheaf or matalan? parking tomorrow..displayed in the centre of the store.
I like the way the colour of the checkout operator's hair is relevant :)
Thanks, Roccostan! I could use a cheap vac, I may even be tempted to pay the extra £5 so that argos have to deal with it if its an unreliable "breaks down after 12 months + 3 days" job...
Have we a recipt?

i can scan the receipt no problem, but if you dont believe me now, you aint going to believe me when you see the receipt as the receipt has the cat no, description & price for the Pro Action model, in fact i will take a pic of the box & vac & reciept together..soon

Confirmed by putting supplied catalogue number (406/2587) into argos website's search box :)

--Edit... Of course, this doesn't guarantee that the other stores will have rebadged similarly, just that if they have been, that the price is correct.
ok, here is the link to the pic, ive squeezed the cat no on the box, the vac & the reciept in one for u.

edit...oops my card details are on it, must remove

I would, we've had 3 similar Vax's from Argos and all went back with faults, no power and no suction.

Have we a recipt?

Anyone who needs to ask for a receipt for a £19 hoover has trust issues and should be seeking professional help....

You are right! This site is making me paranoid... time to step back I reckon :oops:
got it in Edinburgh Straiton - only 2 left
has anyone bought any bags for this hoover? if so where from and how much.
