Games Reductions, & Price Glitches @ Argos
Same thing happened last year - Argos have just reduced a selection of games across all formats, but it seems that they're not only reduced, but you can buy 2 of the reduced selection at an even cheaper price. Also, the more you have in your basket, the cheaper some then appear to become! eg

PSP: Pro Evolution Soccer 2008, Simpsons & Fifa 08 are all now reduced to £14.99 - but add any 2 for £20 - making just £10 each!

WII:
Fifa 08 is reduced to £14.99 but buy 2 copies and they're just £12.50 each - handy for a mate!

PS2:
Likewise, Fifa 08 is reduced to £12.99 but put 2 in your basket and it comes to only £9.00 each.

There are quite a few others too but am still 'experimenting' which ones and which combinations reduce further once in your basket.

I can't get this to work for any 360 games.


What section are we looking under for this? Clearance games? Can someone give me a direct link please.

I orderd 2off call of duty 4 on ps3 for £50, picked them up yesterday and they gave me the game of the year addition.

does work in 360 games, for eg. add pes 2008 with cod3 and cod3 will show up as 10.01 in basket. however you will have to purchase both games which will cost you a total of 28 quid. Bargain or not?????????

I got 2 cod 4 for the 360 and yes you do get the game of the year addition, They just dont advertise it for some reason!!

I got a few games last year when a similar glitch happened with them, but ended up being charged full price for all of them (over £60 more than the checkout price on 4 games) when they hit my card.
After a couple of phonecalls they did honour the original price and refunded the difference with an apology blaiming it on updates and changes on the website, but it did take a few weeks to get my money back.

Still its not going to stop me trying again

Cheers Op

I'm not quite sure what people think is happening here - there is quite plainly stated on those games mentioned that there is a '2 for £30.00' deal, so you added one for £19.99 and then the next shows as £10.01 to make the correct total.

There is also a different selection of games at £29.99, or 2 for £45.00, so adding 2 of these (eg Assassins Creed and FEAR) will make the 2nd item appear as £15.01 to bring the total to the correct amount.

No glitches I'm afraid folks (unless there's a different glitch somewhere?), it's just the deal! :roll:

Still, some nice titles anyway :thumbsup:

Taking into consideration 2 £19.99 PSP games for £25, when you add them to your basket they show as £19.99 and £5.01 respectively. Some of these £19.99 games have been further reduced to £14.99 and are still included in the 2 for £25 deal. However, in your basket they show as £14.99 and £5.01 making 2 for £20. On these selective reduced games, that's where the glitch lies.

i dont get it

but there are only 8 psp games in the offer of which some can be had for £8 delivered elsewhere so not great imo.

Yeah, you can mix and match the games (so no need to buy 2 of one). A bunch of PS3 games that worked for me are:

Kane Lynch
Condemmed 2
Dirt
Dark Sector
DMC 4
Need for Speed Prostreet
Sega Rally
Turning Point

GRAW 2
Assassin's Creed
Fifa 08

I am getting the 2 COD4 on 360 for £45 can get the glitch to work someone remind me how?

anyone help? Also how many people have had success acutally collecting them?

Just reserved the last 2 Fifa 08 (Wii) for £25 the pair, Thanks for posting

Ask someone who can get a five fingered discount:whistling:

I work for Argos (sadly) and the system for pricing that the internet uses is different from the ones the stores are networked to.

I think that many of these 'glitches' would be fixed on the till systems. The best way to find out is to reserve them and then use the Quick Pay machines to check the price its coming out at.

If you cannot get that price then I would suggest you take along a copy of your reservation. Although it says on the email that 'the price reserved at is not the price you pay in store' (along those lines anyway), some duty managers have the right to give a discount of up to 15% as a GOOD WILL GESTURE.

The other thought it to have them home delivered if you can make a big enough saving from the glitches of more than £5.95 (the delivery cost).

Heat has been added for a great deal

not workiing for me today :x
did this last time they had an offer on but they would not honour it in store.

The quick pay kiosk gave real prices. system had been updated, think you need to move fast to get this offer. thanks anyway, it was worth a try.

rep for the post.

cheers wiz - bought fifa 08 for wii for £15 squids bargain.

thanks

might not work in store as if the offer doesnt come up on the till then they dont have to honor the price.
Reserving items online is only reserving the items not the price. But if you print of your reservation of a correct price thats on offer and the next day the price goes up then they have a price promise for a week after the reservation if that makes sense.

Steal it.

Dont forget the Quidco...

I don't understand how this thread has got so hot... Argos always glitch on promotions on their website... but when it comes to reserve for store collection they do not honour... Besides the new Fifa comes out next month.
