Must be a price glitch or something currently trying to get John Lewis to price match!

why even bother when it doesn't add to basket and is oos everywhere

Doesn't go through...but they would not honour even if it did...

Same problem here, doesn't recognise post code. Amazing price, but could be a marketing ploy...

Dead link.

If you go the home page and search it's still there but you can't buy it. Or rather I can't. Ymmv

iCheckStock can't find it so doubt it is going to happen.

Cannot add to basket neither

Its a pricing glitch and they won't let anyone buy it until they fix the price

hahahaaha,right coz they are really going to honour that one!

I reserved one this morning while looking for a more basic model and spotted this as a less than half price clearance offer. 50 mile round trip to collect this in stock item but the store declined to honour the reservation and chat with head office drew a blank. One too many Argos price glitches for my liking. I thought perhaps this was too good to be true but not out of the realms of possibility given the spate of heavy reductions at this time of year.

Let us know how you get on with price match with JL, OP!

Good luck OP with JL. Doubt they will honour it.

It would probably be £1399.

Damn! I would have bought a few of them!! For eBay, obviously.

Did you use the pay kiosk or go to the till?

Tactile

Did you use the pay kiosk or go to the till?



I tried the pay kiosk, price showed £1449 which I believe was the normal price so with a sinking feeling went to the till. Will be interesting to see how long the reduced price is advertised! Lesson learned after wasting time and 2 gallons of fuel. I would have paid more if still a genuine reduction but this does not appear to be the case. Argos pricing of Apple products leaves something to be desired, discounts on iPads with supposed sale prices at normal Apple Store prices can't be ethical.

I managed to get one now Argos are not honouring the transaction

It was a cracking deal, - it probably should have been 1330 or 1399/ I have no intention of buying it. But it's worth a laugh. The specs are so decent apart from the resolution and that it is not i7!

Amazing deal if it works for anyone

Use tinypic.com/ . really easy to use. Just upload the picture, then you will get a url. Then just copy and paste the url into here. So where did you get it from Argos ? John Lewis? and did you reserve it online?

OMG WOW, what a deal! How did you manage to talk john lewis to give you that! Did you literally just go straight to john lewis as soon as you saw the deal on hotukdeals?

Went into John Lewis showed them argos price on phone they were shocked so they got manager involved and he came out and said looks like it's argos error but as a good will he will do it for the same price in and out of the shop with a new iMac within 10 min then John Lewis pulled out this particular model from sale

I did same as suriajega and they honoured it for me too in Derby

Hi, I actually "bought" one of these from Argos over the phone. The money left my account, but nothing came. Then I saw that they had refunded the money back into my account. Are they allowed to do that? Don't they have to honour the transaction?
