Just a heads up that the Argos gift card promotion is back this week starting 16 September. Spend £50 for a £5 gift card and £100 for a £10 gift card. Not sure how long it runs for but wortth bearing in mind if you're heading to Argos this week.

I don't see why not.

Just looked, cant even find the PSP Go ******s!

Any questions? I'm your man!

Could i buy a £100 gift card resulting in it being a £110?

Officially, no. At least not on the old till systems but some Managers let the customer have one anyway. These new tills are much more 'by the book' so to speak so I don't think it's possible.

yes you can, i did this with a samsung tv a few months back... bought 2x£100 vouchers separately each time and got 2x£10 vouchers, so £20 off my final purchase

Sorry for being dense. it's quite late. Is this instore only?

^

Nope. Although if you buy online you get a voucher code for your next online purchase only.

Do you get £10 per £100 of your spend or only one per transaction? So if I spend £300 on one item do I get £30 of vouchers?

Its on for 5 days starting Weds btw =]

But if i spent 100 quid on a card, wouldnt i get a 10 quid card also because i spent 100 quid?

Like Gamerfreak said officially no, and also remember if you pay for something with a gift card, if you ever need a refund you'll get it back on a gift card.

That's ok they sell on Ebay really easily by the looks of it on there lol

Ready my previous post. You are both wrong...i have done this before buying £100 vouchers twice and recieving an additional £10 x2

Bought a samsung TV @ £229 and paid £209 thanks to some thinking ahead!

£10 per transaction. If you spend £300 in one transaction you will only get one £10 gift card.

I'm yet to read the T&Cs but previous T&Cs state that the purchase of a £100 gift card (EGC) doesn't qualify you for a free £10 EGC.

if you read the T&C you are not allowed to do that

if they let you get away with it brill but do not count on it happening

^

Wrong. Like I said, previous T&Cs have stated that you do not get a free £10 EGC when buying a £100 EGC. Likewise for £50/£5 EGC. I don't see the next promotion's T&Cs being different.

These are new tills that have progressively been installed in the last 12 months. With the old tills it was possible, even if against the T&C. Still... we shall soon find out. Just have to wait for our promotional bits to come in.

[EDIT]What alex3410 said, too. :lol:

[EDIT]Oh and there's been nothing in previous T&Cs stating that you can't buy goods in separate transactions to get more EGCs but it is a right PITA. It obviously takes longer to do just the one transaction which makes people have to wait longer in the queue. So we get more staff on tills which loses staff in other areas. Them areas then get bogged down resulting in a longer wait at Collection.

Can you buy a gift card using Nectar points?

No you cant, the new till system every store is now using will not allow it.
On the last promotion we had different tills, so your not going to be so lucky this time round.

wtf!!!!

Yes, you can. You just cannot buy a gift card with a gift card.

Great! Been waiting for this to come back for ages - I was on holiday when the one in April happened.

Why is this so hot? It's just like 10% off but not as good.

Thanks Gamerfreak. If I purchased an item yesterday using Nectar points, do these get refunded back as Nectar Points or cash or gift card?

Nectar points get refunded onto a gift card. Reason being Nectar points have a cash value of £0.0001 and the tills don't allow us to refund onto a Nectar card. Also, the card number doesn't show on the reciept.

Remember to take your value over the threshold (£50 and £100) make a donation to Lukemia research!!! Its on the bottom of every selection slip instore. It suggests 20p donation but you can make it to any value u wish!

Might be useful to add this to the OP

Was going to buy one of the new Nanos from the Apple Store but I can now buy at Argos and get a free tenner gift card! Result!
