you should have ordered yours and received it before posting on here, if it is a misprice most likely to get cancelled due to loads of orders

Not expired

It is instore only, the item on the net is £579.99 but when it was put onto the store system it was keyed as 279.99 hence the misprice.

I made a mistake of alerting the sales assistant in the first Argos i went to who then refused to sell me the item.

However as shown above the reciept has the item/catalogue number on it and they take payment there and then so legally they now have formed the contract and that £750 item is mine for £279.99 and its free delivery all weekend and a £10 voucher.

Win win!!!

£750!! lol you can get a decent make for that...samsung, miele, liebherr, etc...280 is prob near normal price

If it's distance selling (online or whatnot) then the contract is formed when payment is taken, isn't it?

i think thats a clearance item and hence why its excluded from 30 day money back guarantee. Will be difficult to find this offer nationwide

No contract is not formed when money taken as many deals on here have been cancelled and monies returned, when shopping online.

With online purchases the contract is formed only on despatch.

Can't find it for less than £500 anywhere else. £750 is a bit over the top but this is cheap for a nice looking fridge/frezzer. Shame it's too wide for my kitchen.

Italian made junk tbh, not worth 750, not worth 500, 400 tops.

Grab a better one for that but dont buy a Samsung even worse quality

why expired ?

indeed the contract is formed in store once money(cash or cheque) has been taken, if this takes place you are legally allowed to purchase elsewhere and will successfully sue the seller for the cost difference.
the law would also apply to on-line where it not for the banking system(co-incidental) where cash is not actually taken from your account the second the card details are entered,
This practice in banking is called earmarking, so funds are earmarked for making payment and this is organised on an account basis, technically the funds are there in your account but are not available for further withdrawal if they are "earmarked"
hence no payment has actually taken place until some time after the intitial sales transaction allowing on-line e-tailers to withdraw from the sale at this point.

you think you getting a bargain, your not. the product is faulty due to the wiring on the left hand door breaking, Argos know this and are getting rid of them on the cheap lol:

Similar problem. My fridge was tripping the electric every time I closed the L/H door. The cable running from inside the fridge compartment and into the door had damaged by the door hinge, leaving bare wiring. This happened when the appliance was 15 months old. Because I didn't know what was wrong at first, I accidently touched this cable which give me an electric shock. As far as I'm concerned this is a poor design. It should be common sense that you don't run electric cables alongside metal moving parts or crush points. This fridge is not only a danger to it's users, it is also a fire risk in this state. I think they should be recalled.

Hotpoint FF4DX :
Hotpoint Quadrio FF40x Dangerous DO NOT BUY

Missussmith's review of the March 7, 2010 11:13:38am

I too had the bad luck to purchase this dangerous fridge freezer. Sure, it looks stylish and is spacious but it in my opinion is dangerous and could have electrocuted one of us had we not had a circuit breaker. I bought this fridge freezer on Feb 27th 2009 and it blew up on March 16th 2010. I paid nearly €800 for it and certainly expected it to last more than 12 months. Basically the Fridge freezer exploded with a loud bang and visible flash tripping the circuit breaker. We called out an electrician who advised us than the fridge had this door wire design fault. I have yet to contact Hotpoint as it''s a Sunday here and i can''t get through to them, so now i have to go any buy a new fridge and all Hotpoint are likely to do is repair the existing fridge freezer. Having read reviews of it on here and knowing that it happened twice in quick succession to one reviewer, i dont want this unit at all, repaired or replaced. I think hotpoint need to recall this product and compensate those who have experienced this problem before some one is killed.

Pros and cons by Missussmith

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Dangerous design flaw in the door

Have been down this morning to buy one - thanks for the shout out

narrowly escaped buying it after reading the feedback,
better not to have such a fridge than have one sending an electric shock down u

Comes up at this price in Fareham - Titchfield store. Why expired?

Because you must be crazy to buy this fridge after reading the reviews.

Saw one at John Lewis and it does look amazing.
