If only a lot of their stuff wasn't so overpriced in the first place...
I always thought Argos were cheap back in the day. But compare their prices these days and they are ridiculously high for many items. Many items posted here are often 2-3 times more at Argos.

They do have good sales though.
Now they're making some changes on their website so maybe some prices gonna drop finally

Depends what you're looking at really. They're not that bad, but we all know here that shopping online is the easiest (though not quickest) and cheapest way to shop.
This has always been around. And does no one use the voucher part of the site anymore? I fail to see a deal.

Nor is it the most convienant when it comes to returns. Argos has its place but it is certainly becoming less and less relevant.

Lets face it on most items they are expensive, they were cheap in the eighties when the high street was the only option. Customer service is very good though but they need to be more competitive with pricing. I very rarely buy from the store now unless it is a sale item that is hugely reduced. I would like to see argos survive for many years to come but I feel they need to be better at pricing, they can do it I am sure with their buying power.

but its not though is it? You only get voucher per spend, ie: spend over £100, get £10, spend £201 and get £10, its not £10 per £100 spend, if you know what I mean

Or is it?
Buy £100 of vouchers for £90, its the old trick.

If you plan on spending £90 on Argos products!

Do they let you do this, as most places wont let you buy vouchers/app cards/ittunes etc?
Yes they do let you do this, you cant then buy couchers with vouchers though, and wont get the discount using vouchers either (of late anyway)
Argos has got tight with their vouchers ever since they starting placing expiry days on them. Which are usual only valid for 30 days of buying them or only valid during a certain month.
It says instant discount, there seemed to be some confusion here instant discount means put an item costing £100 in your basket it shows up as £90
Shame you can't get onto the site to actually buy anything today !!

I work for Argos. If you buy something for £100, it'll show up in your basket/on the till as £90. Originally £50? It'll cost you £45.

Buy something for £150, it'll still just take £10 off and bring it to £140. Thats the way it works.
Edited by: "richyj91" 29th Sep 2011

how about 6 seperate voucher purchase transactions of £100 = £90and one £50 = £45, would that work?
then buy item in full with vouchers?

Argos are a joke.
