I wont get into which is better this or a Dyson, needless to say this Hoover has terrific reviews, also has a 10 year warranty.... and a 2 year warranty from JL. Price on JL website is £299, so this is a cracking saving

Just had the email from John Lewis this morning to confirm they will price match this hoover, Argos have it listed but not for home delivery and no stock anywhere apart from one or two stores. you use their "never knowingly undersold" promise...

here is the confirmation email, I just phoned and all went through fine.

Dear Mr,

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the Miele S7210 upright cleaner.

I have looked into your request and will be happy to match the price of £159.99 for the vacuum cleaner seen at Argos. However, as Argos have a £5.95 delivery charge, I will need to add this to the price.

The total for the Miele vacuum cleaner is: £165.94.

To place this order with us please call on 08456 049 049 and quote reference number XXXXXX. Please note the price difference will be refunded onto the card used to make the purchase after the order has been delivered.

If you wish to view more information about Never Knowingly Undersold or our pricing policy, you can do so on our website.

If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Kenna Jagger

a week ago, believe me I let them know my feelings on them taking a week, I got told that they look at the "Price Promise" on the day you make it, not the day they authorise it. so to make it fair

John Lewis or Very...ummmm knockout in round one for John Lewis
I'm a lover not a fighter
The John Lewis promise really annoys me, They are always knowingly undersold, they just seem to be oblivious to it, lie, or say that because of their guarantee it doesn't count.

They know Argos are selling it for the lower price, but still have it listed as £299

Still good price, and other that their 'price promise' generally good service

"... this Hoover has terrific reviews..." It's not a Hoover!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely. They do this time and time again, and it makes a mockery of the 'never knowingly undersold' policy. They're always being 'knowingly undersold' - time to talk to the ASA, I think......
Price match has finally been done online now. £159.99 delivered.
Cheers OP, forgot to follow it up after Argos was out of stock.
With free 10 year warranty it really is a bargain.

£30 for the 10 year warranty, rather than free, but still well worth having, I reckon.

Thanks for posting that JL have now reduced their price (and to the OP for the original post). One delighted wife.

They hide it a bit on their website, but it does seem to still be a free 10 year warranty on any of the s7 upright models. Scroll to second from bottom offer on this page:

Thanks so much for that - you're absolutely right! The JL website talks about £30, and, as you say, Miele seem to be hiding it pretty well.

£30 saved - very much appreciated.
