    Any Argos staff on here?

    I am looking for some help on a product on the Argos website.

    The item i am looking at has this at the bottom of the page...

    Current selling price valid until 08/12/2009

    This is not showing as a reduced item or sale item. What does this mean? Is it going to go up after this date?

    Can any argos staff or anyone that has any info on this please help?

    I don't know but I would guess it may be reduced after that date..

    if its not marked down then i doubt very much the price will be going up as that wouldmean changing all the catalogs

    Do you think i should wait then if it will probably be going down in price? Or might it be that a new catalougue is coming out?

    New catalogue usually comes out around NY? So could possibly become stocked no more. Which would suggest it would go down in price if wanting to shift stock. But not altogether sure.

    just a suggestion but reserve it on the 8th and reserve it on the 9th that way if it goes down on the 9th you get it for that price but if it goes up you can still collect the 8th's reservation at the original price, you will probably have to see the manager and speak nicely though as they normally say price paid is price in store when you collect but like I said if you ask nicely for tthem to honour the reservation price they normally do

    Thanks michelleleemoo, it is certainly worth think of but i don't hold out for them letting me have it for the cheaper price if it goes up as it is £400 at the moment. Also the reservation code does not show the price and at the momnet i don't have acces to a printer to show the reservation with price showing.

    use the text and reserve facility for a record and like i said they dont normally but I know someone recently put on a similar thread on here that they do have the discretion when honouring reservation prices and that person was a Argos manager, I will see if i can find the thread

    they have over stickers for the in store browsers when a price changes or if there is an error and the online price is easily changed.

    as for the question about "Current selling price valid until 08/12/2009" it means they have lots of the item or it's an end of line product, on the date shown they will re evaluate the stock levels and change the price accordingly, the price will probably go back up once they've got rid of some of the excesss stock. unless like i said it's an end of line product.

    Thanks michelleleemoo i have just had a look and it seems that it works for some but not for others i have tomorrow to think about it, if i can manage to get my printer set up i might give it a try. :thumbsup:

    As a thought could you not buy it and then return it if the price goes down??

    Thought of doing that but it is exempt from the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

    If it states...

    Does that mean i would have to reserve it today or tomorrow? Does it include the 8th

    i would reserve the item today and tomorrow and the 9th, that way you will have 3 different reservation codes, use the one that is applicable to the day with the cheapest price when asking store to honour it :thumbsup:
