have you tried contacting the member, we all mis-type things

Send a PM to the member asking for the correct reservation number,maybe?

Well get down to the store first thing in the morning and buy it once it's off reserve.

Camp out with a flask if you have to(you will be the only one in the queue!:giggle: )

if you know the members name just mention that at the argos store and they should still let you have the tv. they dont need the reservation number.i went in after reserving an item.i told them my name and they where able to give me the item.

Does ask for an email address though. Do you know what that is, or could be?

no feedback, so no help there, maybe a thread does anybody know scooter

Hold on, are you making this up, or i am confused?
You say you took a day off, so i am guessing you are at or near the store, but yet you say you've phoned the store and they won't help?

Took day off, headed up the argos at 9, takes 30mins to get there, was checking all the systems in there but the TV had been removed then tried different reservation codes as he only gave me 5 letters and it should be six. Came home and got the catalogue number off here phoned the argos i had just been to and they said yes we do have 1 on reserve but cant give it to you unless you get the reservation number.

Sorry, makes a bit more sense now.
Well, based on having 5, needing 6 digts.
How's about, and yes, it will take TWENTY attempts,worst case.....
Add a leading 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9 to the start of the five digits you have, if that doesn't work, add a 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9 to the END of the five digits you have.......

I asked the woman at the store to do that but she said she didnt have enough time

If you use the quick pay machine, you can enter any number at any time.
Makes a mockery of the reserve system

It was, thought you were on to it for a minute oh well, everyone line up the mass PMage for when he gets onlien so he doesnt miss my little PM.

Blowing your own trumpet, sassie. :roll: That's not good.:-(

I assume these reservation numbers are done by area then. I'm in the south west so if scooters in the around the same area as you, you can be pretty sure your number starts 30024??

Argos customer service are normally pretty good instore, I can't believe they wont go through 10 numbers for you ?

Tell them your 90 year Gran wrote it down and it's for her birthday or something

they will ask for an email address, and he cant give one, they will first ask for reservation number, then if cant give that they will ask for email address, or even postcode and the op cant give any
