As title says, spend £150 or more on a Vax hoover at argos and receive a £50 gift card.

If your ordering your Vax online you need to enter code 19088 during the checkout process, or print the page off if your ordering for in store pick up, but it tells you all the details if you click special offers on the page.

Seems like a decent deal to me, especially if your thinking of buying one.

Hmmmm..... most Vax pruducts get reduced by around 1/2 during the argos sales!!

if you buy 10 and get the vouchers then send them all back do you get to keep the vouchers?

Nah I'm sure argos have a policy of needing to return the vouchers with the product.

With their usual gift voucher promotion (buy over £50 get £5, over £100 get £10) returning items without the free gift voucher means the amount is deducted from the refund. Eg you purchase an item for £100 and get £10. You then return the item without the voucher and they will refund you £90.

I'm pretty sure the same will apply for this promotion unless it's an unplugged loophole.

if you are going for item number 088/3227 , it on has £100 off at currys which works out a better deal.

If you've got 150 quid to spend on a vacuum cleaner, it means you needn't buy a Vax! That's worth £50 of anyone's money! :-)

Comet have at least 2 of the Vax hoovers half price. The one I brought was £74.99 and they had another for £99.99 (both half price).
This would work out cheaper then 'Ar-goose'

I bought a top of the range vax before, but I found them to be no where near as good as dysons.

I made the mistake of buying one of the first Vax machines. They haven't improved!

Vax make awful hoovers. I used to think Dyson were the best until I bought a Bissell, Dyson's DO lose suction without a doubt even with new filters! The Bissell was a bargain I posted on here approx 18 months or so ago for about £30 (£180 elsewhere at the time), best £30 I ever spent!
£50 voucher or not, this is cold for me.

where the heck did you get a bissell for £30? i bought one in currys in the sale £89 & it was the best vacuum i've ever bought. i went to get another but the cheapest was £169.

Dysons suck

All form, no function.

That was pretty much what I said until an ex-mother in law brought her Dyson (the firs first model!) over to prove her point and merely ran it over my NEWLY vacuumed living room floor, on a year old carpet.

Embarrassing would not adequately describe it!

Like others have said, save yourself a few bob and dont buy a VAX hoover. I can't believe how bad they are, replaced it with a dyson in the last few weeks.
Have also heard from employees of argos not to buy VAX from them as they dont take the product back if anything goes wrong, you need to go back to VAX - something VAX specifically has asked argos to do. Hope this helps someone.

That is correct, the policy changed in the last few months, after 30 days, argos isnt permited to replace the item, the customer must call VAX, we have leaflets instore to give customers if they ever bring a VAX hoover back.

Apart from confirming that Vax is dross, as is widely known on this site; that kind of finishes off the entire Argos ethos then.... buy it, take it back if it is bust.
That is the whole point of catalogue shopping, as you can't even see it before you buy it! Once you do it with one product, then the whole concept is dead.

Now it means buy it, get messed around when it is dud.

Might as well just go to DSG retailers (Currys, Dixons, PC world!), or Comet who have always messed customers about - but at least you might get to look at it before you buy it there, and odds on it will be cheaper, with a shorter wait to get it!

Direct from Bissell, they were refurbs but were like new. It was a very popular post on here :-D

]Here's one for £49.95 delivered.

There's ]reference to my original thread but it doesn't come up in a search for some reason.
