Argos Price Policy?

Looked on the site but i cant see anything.

Something i bought 8 days ago has come down in price? Only £11, but its still £11.

Some shops/amazon do a price promise sort of thing?
Just wondering if argos do?

If it's portable (ie not furniture!) just take it back - you have 16 days (i think) to return it for a full refund, unless it's earings. so take it back, get a refund at full price on your receipt, then purchase it agin at the reduced price!


hope you're feeling better now, Joshanna!

Its excluded from the "now" 30 day guarantee :geek:
This is why i asked or id have done that :giggle:

perhaps it could accidentally break?

so is lowering a price so drasticaly and not expecting them to "fall apart"!

depending on what it is, could there be a big ish scratch on it!???

ask them fopr store credit (more chance of getting it) as your not sure if you still want that version / style!

buy the new one, then take it back with the old receipt !!!

if the item is exempt from the 30 day money back guarantee, buying a new one won't work, Joshy will be stuck with 2 of the items.

Not sure what you mean JDeal? Argos would know the age of each receipt, but not necessarily which item belonged to which receipt?

most stores offer a price promise...even against themselves. just ask nicely.......and if that doesnt work...ask a manager.......they will nearly always do it, goodwill gesture and all that. remember to tell them you shop there regularly.

Well im back

I took it back saying it was faulty, saying it kept skipping, and had reserved another already, asked if i wanted another, but turned out they were all reserved :giggle:
TBH, i knew they wouldnt look into it as it was a busy saturday afternoon.

So got a refund, went outside, gave my mum the cash, she went and got my reserved one and i walked away with £11

Little bit naughty, but i dont think £11 in 8 days is on really, and couldnt find anything about a price promise, and it would look dodgy if i went and asked, then said can i return this then please.....

So, are you going to tell us what it is?

> keeps skipping?.... either argos now stock over-playful children, or i'm guessing electronics... CD based hardware?.....

:giggle: it was the twin dvd players i posted last week now just paid £48.99 for them, not bad at all really :giggle:

Even better when you get £11 back, when they were already reduced from £100 :giggle: now thats gotta be a hot deal

so not the over-playful children then! - thank goodness!

Nah, already got one for free!
Can i take him back saying hes faulty?

it depends.... if he's not skipping, you'll need a different excuse..BTW still got his receipt?....

Sadly, as hes a boy he doesnt skip, although i guess i could arrange it?
Dont have the reciept, hes just over 2 though, so wont be able to return to the shop, it will have to be the manufacturer - oh crap - thats me LOL!

well technically there should have been some outsourcing during the manufacturing process, you could try enquiries down this avenue, but those providing the outsourcing generally have no further input in the manufacturing process and provide very little in the way of after-care for the end product once delivered to the market .......

...oh dear!!.... ;-)

PMSL! what a thread this is turning into :giggle: get us being all technical :giggle:

what's pmsl?

It may be worth you holding onto him, often they can increase in value over the years, and can turn out to be a good investment later in life, providing some good returns!

Hmmm, just wondering if i can get shares, anyone care to invest

I believe this can happen in a similar situation to when building societies de-mutualise - if the parent company splits, there is usually an opportunity for shared-ownership, however - this is not always a good thing - remember - the value of shares can go down aswell as up - you may not be able to recover the whole of your investment.

if you are not an industry professional, you should not rely on the advice contained in this thread.
