Its not at any south wales stores

My argos full price still.

I picked up my Wii as an Argos manager's special back in August '07 for £150. it was an open box customer return but the console itself was sealed in bag and unused.

Did you check Cardiff City Centre?

Wow, this is a good deal. Wii + Mario Kart + broadband = all you need ;-)

Anyone confirm this price? Sounds like a bit of a wild goose chase to me....................:whistling:

Im not finding it at this price £159.99, all I can find it at is £179.99. Am I making an error or has the price now gone up?

On a slightly unrelated note but still Nintendo:

My girlfriend bought herself a silver DS Lite yesterday at Argos in Worthing and it only cost £87.97.

Could it be Argos are doing some unofficial in-store discounts on Nintendo consoles?

Just use Google maps, Search for 'Argos' and '' and the results should list a phone number too.

youll be lucky if your argos actually has any in stock though!!!!!!!!

Both Worthing stores have stocks of Wii consoles.

........at this price?

The only Bristol store with any is Emersons Green, but they can't be bothered to answer the phone so I can't tell you how much they are (but it's coming up as 179 on the web).

am i missing something cause i cant see it. item number?

How many times does this come up :sigh:

someone posted one of these before but it was isolated to one branch of argos, some one in the thread said it was because it was where a large number of units had come back to argos so they where all checked and sold off cheap. someone else said it was becase a manager had to meet some kind of target. Either way it was only in one outlet so if you don't live near this branch (Leicester City) then you wont get this deal.

Credit to the OP for finding and notifying people in Leicter about the deal tho.

Even so watch this end up going ballistic on the thermometer as everyone will vote hot

(btw Not voted as I can't take advantage of the deal)

wow. it was hardly worth the effort was it?

No idea, I'd have to call the store. The website just has the RRP.

Judging by the fact that no store I've called even answered the phone this morning I'd say that either their getting stacks of calls (from readers of this site !!), or their customer service is just **** at the store level. Any store that lets the phone ring unanswered for over 5 mins has a serious problem !

That's what happens when you mostly employ college and uni students at minimum wage.

Excellent find. Thanks

I can't understand why this is so hot if nobody else other than the OP managed to get one at this price? My Argos (Plymouth) didnt even know what a wii was until I gave them the item number... they thought I was being rude! 179.99 here

There are some available to reserve in North West but so as not to upset folks i have NOT reserved one, cos last time i did, the Saint shouted at me.........mind, they are the full RRP price

Good find if you're near Leicester.

Doing a stock check via the Argos website shows that all Leicester branches are out of stock now.. [sigh]

I got a wii at Argos Greenock on Saturday - full price sadly

I'd reserved one for pick up today at Argos Edinburgh, but that was full price too.

Have you had one delivered?

where is is at this discount price? and whats the item number if anyone has got it.

this isnt that good a deal anyway imo

if you go to zavvi u get a wii and no more heroes for £180

saves having to hunt down a argos that might have one as well

OWwwwwww, I just came from there, I went into town after UNI, I know the manager at the Leicester store, but has anyone tried ringing the the store in question?

Guys i work for argos.. think its just a store thing. popped in work today to get a few bobs for uni and there wern't on offer in telford area so guessing its a store thing. Good find from OP heat added.
