I had taken advantage of the current "Reserve for Store Pick-up" offer in Argos for the following items
PSP Base Pack
Tomb Raider game
The deal was, add all three to the trolley and get the game and travel kit free. All this for £149 which looked like a good deal to me.
Went to Argos to pick it up and they told me the till was saying you only get the game free and the price would be £164.
I asked if they had an internet connection which they did and I showed them the deal for £149. After some scratching of heads the sales person and what I assume was the manager disapeared for about 15 minutes. When they came back they told me Argos were covered because the small print says you have to pay the instore price when you collect. I tried to explain that I could accept that if the price on the internet had changed but that the offer was clearly still on and that the till was wrong.
We "discussed" this for some time and they wouldn't budge. They told me it was an internet only offer and that I should have had it delivered. They refused to talk about the fact that they were advertising an offer as collect in-store which they were unwilling to honour
In the end I walked out - life is too short (although I do have the problem of what to do with the £5 voucher I got for buying Robosapien V2 there last week)
Anyone else had this problem?
