Nintendo DS Lite - £73.39 @ Argos

Found 7th Feb 2009Made hot 8th Feb 2009
Went into my local Argos store today - they are known for their managers specials, they had Nintendo WDS Lites for £73.39 - cheapest I've seen them anywhere. They had black and Pink - I managed to pic up a black one (Will scan the receipt in a min) - I'm not sure but think this might be limited to the Knaresborough (North Yorkshire) Store

Did you buy EVERYTHING in the store?

Good deal for the 2nd generation of the DS . . .the DS Lite but you have to remember that the 3rd generation . . . Nintendo DSi is due out very very soon in the UK

I have posted a copy of the receipt - so there is verification. I'm not self promoting - I dont work for Argos! I was just in there yesterday and they had what I thought were quite a few good deals - I thought that was the spirit of this forum, sharing good deals, but I'm obviously wrong

The 16gb ipod touch you bought is £214 at my local Argos. Methinks that you're using a staff discount. Why waste our time? Go and brag somewhere else! :x

The price paid for the 16g ipod touch on the receipt is a better bargain!

I can assure you that I am not using a staff discount, I don't work there and dont know anyone who does. I work for an ATM company which has nothing to do with Argos. If you don't believe me then call the store yourself and ask - I wouldn't post deals others could not get.

Not disputing the poster but the code referenced=s for Argos do not match up to the goods stated either on line or in the catalogue - DS Lite starts with 566 or 568 - - and ipod touch is 513/8496. Tried the refernces on the receipt and 'not known'

All three threads were on the same page, as they were posted within 3 minutes of each other Sherlock.

:w00t:Surely someone wouldn't fake a receipt using photoshop or something.

Original Poster

Receipt is not faked, I can assure you of that - i wish instead of doubting me all the time one of you would actually just ring the store and ask them - maybe then you would find out I am telling the truth, not self promoting, or faking anything at all!

Doesn't the receipt normally have the date underneath the store info?

It doesn't matter if it's real or not, it's one store in the entire country. The whole nation's attention is not needed. Go and tell local people, Cold.

People are just going to stop posting deals if this is the way you all get on! All I see is people being torn to shreds for positng what they believe is a good deal...This is the whole idea to share deals so people can save money.

people are so pedantic on every forum. if some one thinks its a good deal, it probably is because theyve checked other prices and this is the cheapest. dont rip on them, just tell them you think it could be cheaper somewhere else...

I work for argos and can confirm that the deal with the ds is correct. Managers specials are items that have been returned as faulty but when tested dont have a fault with them and so are sold on cheaper. Managers usually have to order the items in and so the deal will probably be restricted to just the one store and not nationwide. However with managers specials only £20 - £30 is knocked of the original price so the price of the ipod is a bit low. This person has not got staff discount as this is only 10%. The reason that the cat numbers dont match the ones in the catalogue is because they are managers specials and so not avaliable in all stores.

Hope that clears things up

It'd be underhanded of me, I suppose, to go buy a DS tomorrow and return it the next day as faulty. And repeat the process over several days. Then wait for the manager to put 'em all on special offer...

Rep to the OP - thanks for posting the deal. It may be extremely limited, but that doesn't justify the negative comments aimed at you in this thread.

it is not a fake receipt I do not understand why everyone is doubting me. Below are 3 images - 1 is the original receipt with my credit card details blanked out (for obvious reasons) the other 2 are of the 2 products on the receipt with the item codes clearly showing. Hope this finally puts an end to all the doubters

Also why has this deal been expired - as far as I am aware they still have stock unless anyone can confirm that they dont?

The ipod touch that you have is a first generation one and so is old stock thats why it has come out that cheap the newer ones come in a plastic case not a box.

Original Poster

I am aware that it is a 1st gen and stated that in my post about it - but still i cant find a 1st gen as cheap anywhere else

Cosmicdav3 you know the deal is a good one and so do many people there is just a minority of people who have nothing better to do than post comments to try and ruin a good deal. If it helps I voted HOT

Original Poster

As I'm fairy new still to this site can anyone explain to me why all of my deals i have posted have been spammed and expired - i have proved they are real deals, and as far as i am aware they have not expired, but someone has expired them?
