Nook Simple Touch E-reader £19.99 - Clearance Bargains (argos) Walsall, Corby & Stanley instore only

37
Found 24th May 2013
Clearance Bargains in Walsall, West Midlands has Nook Simple Touch E-Readers available for £19.99, was told they were refurbs but the two I looked at were brand new , easily had over 50 on display on the electronic counter. I think these are new because they have a big 'Managers Special sticker on them and the till op did not know.

Plenty of other bargains instore – too many to mention and some were one offs- mobiles, Ipads, Tablets, etc

Not available via Argos clearance website, in store only.

'Managers special' stickers on the front of the boxes
Store specific - great for people around Walsall

Refurbs are generally ok, usually ex display or store returns, although 50 is high for one store and media items are generally non returnable. Where they ALL in clearance? If Manufacturer refurb you will get warranty but could be 3,6 or 12 months

Wonder if these are part of the US stocks that Argos got by mistake instead of the UK versions they were supposed to get.

I personally do not think they are refurbs but new as they had a manager sticker on them and they had loads.

Does anyone have a store list for these?
I've not heard of the shop itself...but hell....I'm free over the weekend so may have a day out somewhere!

these have 12 month guarantee

think we need a separate 'deal' for every argos clearance branch that has these

Fabulous deal. Hope these are snapped up by ordinary people before some eBayer get down there.

over 2 and a half hours and nobody has asked for ......


"proof"

because no one really cares about these, hence the price.

Incorrect. Lots of people care about these, hence the umpteen threads during the past few weeks, being heated well past 1000 degrees.

Paid 29 couple of days ago. Hot

No way... Purchased 2 for £29,i should have waited for longer

Don't have an Argos clearance store near me, but if I did, I think I'd probably even buy one at this price even though I have absolutely no need for one! X)

Best thing I bought. It has really got me into reading. Rooted mine and now I love reading no hassle just press the power button and I am right back to the page I was last on amazing. Can only be good for my Vocabulary.

How do you root one and what do you gain?

Does anyone know where I can find a list of all the Clearance Argos outlets in the UK?

True, this. Either a refurb or an opened box customer return. They may be repackaged with shrinkwrap to look brand new but they won't be. I found lint and grime on opening a Manager's Special which wasn't visible from the see-through packaging when I bought an mp3 player at Walsall.

Manager's Special Sauce?

I think the meaning of refurb these days has become really skewed. I just bought one and it looks brand spanking new. there is nothing looking 'refurb' about it. .Well, there are legal reasons why they are sold under such references. go figure. HEAT added

As good as the Kindle! Great find!

has compiled loads of info from the numerous recent Nook threads. I got one of the £29 ones, went to gutenburg and am making my way through loads of free classics. Also via the Nook store you can get 14 day free trials of loads of magazines (Ive got cycling, photography and film mags waiting for me).

£19.99 and people are worrying about length of warranty!

how long did everyone have to charge theirs before it would fire on ?

mine's been charging for an hour or 2 and there's still no sign of life

There's a few simple YouTube videos on the topic, linked in the Nook discussion thread, and doing so enables you to install apps from the Google Play or Amazon stores, and use your choice of Launcher for a proper Android home screen.

You'll need a class 6 microSD card and around ten minutes,

bought 2 a couple of weeks ago (for me and the missus) at £29and that was a good price,so £19.99 is excellent... a throwaway price! heat added

Thanks op, got one lunchtime today, still loads left.
Looks like new to me apart from the 2 big Argos stickers across the box, one with the catalogue number and one saying " Argos Managers Special".
For £19.99 can't be beat.

At least 25 in the walsall store on top shelf of electricals sectipn this lunch time. Wife bought one.....great deal.

Even though I listed this I finally bought one today !

Thanks OP, just got one today, they are behind the counter on the highest self, reachable only by ladder. Hence I could not properly see how many they had left, I would estimate about 15.

oops sorry did search before posting but didnt see this, never mind sorry for the duplicate deals

I picked up one today. It was a customer return - not shrinkwrapped and the usb cable had been quicky coiled and forced into its compartment without the plastic sleeve. Also it was already on firmware 1.2.1, whereas these ship with 1.2.0. From what I could see of the others on the top shelf, they looked to be the same. I think I may have seen solid88 buying one at the same time.
