Argos is always one of the first retailers I think of whenever I am looking to buy a number of products. Their range of products is so huge and diverse that I'm almost certain to find what I'm looking for. From electrical items to home-ware and furniture to toys,clothes, jewellery,gifts and garden items - this store has it all and at prices that you can afford. I find using the Argos website is a easy way to purchase items either for delivery or for picking up. I also just use the website as a stock checker as it shows you exactly which local stores hold which products if you need to go and pick something up straight away or have a look before you buy.
The website is modern and well designed with an easy to read menu at the top of the main page. From the main menu you can go into smaller sections to narrow down your search for a product. Since the company often do special deals the drop down menus can look a bit confusing as they list all of the offers as well as subcategories of products. Alternatively you can search for a specific item or term in the search box.
Product information given is very thorough with full details and reviews from other customers who have already purchased the items. You can choose to either reserve items, or buy them outright for collection at a store local to you or get a home delivery. Delivery costs vary according to the size of the item so you'll be told during the checkout process what the costs actually are.
The site can find your local store if you type in a postcode or an area name. This store has many branches so chances are there will be one near you. I've had a couple of home deliveries and I find the arrangements are well managed, with the needs of the customer coming first.
I would recommend this site and this company to anyone looking for items like furniture, household furnishings, large and small electrical items and children's toys.
When I am looking for a product for my home one place I normally always looks is www.argos.co.uk. The range of items they sell is rather phenomenal and there is not much you cannot purchase from there website now from homeware to jewellery to toys.
There website is very easy to navigate around by either using the tabs to go straight to the relevant department or by using the ‘search’ facility.
I have used the Argos website several time but recently to purchase a new office kettle. After a quick search in the toolbar for ‘kettle’ I was presented with a whole list of different ones. I was able to narrow my search quickly and found a kettle in the sale.
As I wanted to pay cash for the kettle rather than to purchase it on my card from the website I opted to place my postcode into the website and clicked on the ‘check’ button to check the stock levels at my local stores. It then listed all of the stores in order of distance to me where the kettle was in stock. I then simply reserved my item for collection.
Almost seconds after I reserved my item I received a text message to my mobile phone with my reservation number on. I was then able to pop into the store and give my reservation number to one of the checkout staff members, pay for my kettle and collect it very swiftly.
You obviously can also pay for items on the website and have them delivered to your home address. I am quite lucky that I live close by to an Argos store so always reserve items and collect them if they are small enough to be carried.
Overall I have always been very impressed with the Aros website as not only does it have a vast range of items for sale, is easy to navigate around and very user friendly it also allows me to check stock levels at my local stores. I have never had any problems using this website and would recommend it to anyone looking, well for almost anything!
Over the past few years I purchased multiple items from Argos. I have one store about two minutes walk from my flat, however I rather order my items from their online store and pick it up in the store next to my home in 2-3 days. The reason is simple - the online store has bigger range of products than the local store. They offer a home delivery as well which is very practical if you do not have a store nearby or if you are ordering large and heavy items.
But Argos does not sell just through their online shop but through Ebay as well. They sell there especially returned items which lack of original packaging. These items are new (or tried once) and you can really snap a bargain from them if you do not need a original box. I snapped so my HP Headphones for only £6.99!
The original online store is very well organised in categories or you can manually search for specific item if you know already what you want exactly buy. I purchased once from them a Samsung chromebook, but when I tested it the charger was not working. I contacted their customer service, they were very helpful and resolved my problem very fast. I exchanged the laptop for a new one on the same day.
You can get cashback when purchasing on Argos.co.uk so I recommend to check it out.
I would recommend Argos.co.uk - they have a great range of products, reasonable prices and good customer service.
I have always loved argos, they have such a fantastic wide range of stuff, and everythings usually in stock or will be within a couple of times, i have used it numerous times over the years and very rarely been let down! Would reccommend this store to everyone and anyone looking to buy anything, always go to argos first! I have purchased things for myself, my partner, mother, father, daughters, friends etc and they always have what i am looking for and a wide range at that! They are very reasonably priced and have anything between a value range to a more luxurious price tag also! But they never fail to impress me and the staff are also always very friendly too :) overall i would have to say that argos would have to be one of my favourite stores out of everywhere i visit regularly, and they always have deals on, sonetimes really cheap too! :) and because they have so many stores, if the item i'm looking for is out of stock at one store then i usually find that there is a store not far from me that has the item in stock so i find argos very reliable and also really handy as they are ao close too, lastly i have to say that on the rare occasion i have had to exchange or return anything that i have never had a problem with that either, they are very helpful and have no dramas etc, they help you out no hassle, no mattet what the problem may be! :)
Argos have a great range of products in their catalogue and even more online. I often flick through the catalogue picking out everything I want and usually keep an eye on their prices online and look out for when they are on offer. Argos offers some great deals anyway, much cheaper than most retailers, but often have sales on meaning you can pick up some excellent bargains. I've seen furniture ranges, for example, could be reduced from £2000 to about £400. Large discounts like this are fairly regularly at Argos and on a range of categories. I often look out for these sale items and I regularly check the clearance page where I can check what is on offer specifically at my local store (or any other store). In store, the staff are always polite and helpful and the speed of service is excellent. I usually don't have to wait more than a minute to collect my order if I buy in store. I have used the Argos delivery service on many occasions and orders have always arrived on time (in a time slot of my choosing) and in good condition. The only negatives are that, unlike some other firms, Argos do charge delivery fees (which I sometimes don't really notice if the product is expensive but with cheaper items it could mean that it would be cheaper elsewhere). Also, some items are not always in stock at my local store, meaning I have to go to another Argos store, another store or pay for delivery.
Argos has become so ingrained into our social psyche that it has become a household name, much like Woolworth used to be. Growing up, I had always hunted out the Argos catalog to browse through possible Christmas presents that my parents could potentially be forking out for. Suffice to say, I never received everything on my wish list.
Every trip into town would be an experience as a child which would always include Argos and Woolies. Browsing through all the toys was a magical experience, especially since we would never own much of it. Argos was always a brilliant shop, even when I was in my teens and starting my first paid jobs; buying my first cd player was great when I was able to get this great big lump of a thing for twenty quid.
My family always ask me 'where is the best place to buy this?' and 'what can I get for what's her name for Christmas?', I always suggest Argos. I suppose I must have something called the Argos reflex ingrained into me which automatically alerts people to buy from there..I must be an Argos robot or something!
I must come accross as the Argos No1 fan, well, times change..and so did Argos. Recently I have become somewhat fazed by my childhood favourite, they don't seem to be the same anymore. For years I have been a loyal customer, but somehow, Argos have not been so loyal to me.
As a large Company, Argos have sought to move with the times and have invested heavily in financial products, which I had lapped up eagerly. Yes, evidently finding myself in debt and feeling my 'love' for Argos waning, I had found myself moving into a new house and needing some new equipment. Being on a budget, I could not afford the expensive fandangled brand names in the catalogue, so, I bought a load of cheap and cheerful stuff from the Argos value range.
Within a year of being an Argos Value fan, my gadgets started to die on me, outside of their warranties. Disappointed and out of pocket, I had to buy the fandangled stuff after all. It came to the crunch when I came home from work to find my man with half a shaved head, red face and broken argos value clippers. The poor man had been sitting there for four hours awaiting my return so I could get a replacement and shave the rest of his hair off! The replacement broke too so we gave up...
There are quality product featured in the catalogue which I do still purchase from time to time. Age has not been kind to the old giant of Argos, time has turned them into a company suffering a mid-life crisis. The recent recession makes people want to spend less, therefore, more prone to suffering Argos Value Range disasters. In order to avoid Argos value Range..save and buy something that'll last! Sorry Argos..I still love you!
I remember going through the Argos catalogue when I was younger and ticking the hundreds of thousands things I wanted. Now I'm all grown up and my habit is still the same. Argos for me is a one stop shop for presents, bedding, toys, lighting, furniture, etc. I purchase from Argos over and over again and I think I always will. I have bought numerous things from storage solutions, irons, a mini toaster oven, heaters and lamps. Not only for myself but I recommend Argos to everyone. Their value range has always proven to be great, well 98% of the time at least. I hardly ever regret buying from them.
It's as easy as tapping your item catalogue number into one of the docks in store and paying for it. The store is very organized, with staff always happy to help. A token number is provided and when the sales assistant calls out your number, all you have to do is pick up your item and leave! Really quick and simple, noting complicated at all.
It seems only fair to tell you about my regrets with Argos after much praise! Although I sincerely mean all of the above, if you're a busy person like me, then you need a quick solution rather than roaming the shops Argos is the one stop shop for anything other than groceries and clothing! I do however regret purchasing a duvet from their everyday value range. It just wasn't good quality. I am hoping it was a one off but I won't be trying it again. It wasn't warm although it was 13.5 tog. It was stiff, hard to get comfortable in and basically it just wasn't any good. I took it back the following day and thank goodness the sales assistant was really helpful and gave me a refund even though I didn't pack it up like it originally came. It was just impossible for me to roll it back up and put it in its original plastic covering. Argos has a policy that they will return things as long as they are packed up properly. I can't complain though because after much effort from me and the sales assistant, it was impossible to return the duvet to its original packaging.
I hope this review helps. If you're not happy with a purchase from Argos you can always get a refund. I would recommend it though 100%. And No, I am not affiliated with them in any way, just a happy customer!
Argos.co.uk provides a great service for anyone browsing the internet for products that they later wish to buy from the argos shop, or online. It's fairly easy to use and work your way round to find the item you want as there are different sections of the website for different items e.g. jewellery. Within these categories you can then go into further subsections by price or type of item.
The argos.co.uk website enables a customer to see whether an item is in stock at their local argos branch which is helpful in case the customer does not wish to pay delivery charges.
The website also gives the customer a much more wide ranging choice of items which cannot be done in each argos branch as items are often unavailable.
Through the website argos deals can be seen clearly which enable the customer to get a great deal for their desired item.
If you are thinking of buying something from Argos, dont just go into the store and select it, make sure that you go online first to the website as you could save yourself a fortune.
Almost every time I have wanted to buy something either toys or items for the home, I have checked argos's website and the item I have selected is on sale. You can then reserve the item in your local store so that you dont have a wasted trip. The website is very easy to use and is the same process for checking out without paying if you are collecting in store.
Online you can browse thousands of products for your home, garden, toys, sports equipment the list is endless. It also saves paper and having to carry that catalogue home from the store.
If the item is out of stock then you can get it delivered at a later date, or collect it from a different store. You must go the next day otherwise the item will get put back for anyone to buy.
The website sends a text message to you with a code, this code has to be given to the staff at the till when you go to collect the item if you are paying with cash. If you want to pay by card and there is a long queue then use the machines with your code and this can sometimes save time.
I would recommend going through quidco as well as you may get cashback from your online purchases.
Argos is a great place to buy most of the things for your home. Whenever I need something bigger, like sofa, new bed for my daughter, or a sideboard I first check on argos.co.uk and usually I decide to buy from them as I can find something I like for affordable price.
It's worth checking out their latest price cuts as they have quite big reductions sometimes which makes their items even more affordable. They always state how long the offer is valid so there will not be disappointment if you plan to buy something, because you will know if the item is still on sale.
I have got Argos Store Card which is the best credit card I have ever had. I always pay it back before I have to pay interest so it's really useful if you don't have money at the time you need to buy something, but you get an offer for 6 months interest free credit (or 3 months for cheaper items - as I noticed it changes sometimes for how long the interest free credit is valid) And if you spread the cost for the 6 months it will be a lot easier to pay for your item.
If I want to buy something I can pick up in store I always check the website if the store I'm going to has it on stock to save time and disappointment.
I have bought most of the things for the house from Argos and was quite happy with the products I have chosen. The only thing I had to bring back was a table light which only worked for 2 weeks, so I reckon that's not bad in 4 years.
I would recommend it.
I find the Argos website much better to use for finding good deals than going to the store and flicking through the catalog. You can search for the item you are looking for and then either order it for delivery or reserve it for store pick up. You can enter your postcode and it will let you know which Argos stores near you stock the item and gives you the ability to reserve it for about a day. I find this saves a lot of time and effort.
The website also has reviews by people who bought the item. When you pick something, like a dresser for example, it shows you related items or items from the same range. It also notifies you of any deals related to your item.
Delivery charge is the same no matter how many items you order. It's 5.95 for small items and 8.95 for large items. This makes it really cheap when you are buying furniture or appliances. On the other hand if you are just after one small item, you are better of picking it up at store. I have ordered several times and they almost always deliver on the day you pick. The items come packaged well and I only had a problem with them delivering the wrong item once. I didn't complain though because the missing item was very cheap and not worth the hassle.
One thing I don't like about the site though is that in the sales section a lot of items are sold out. To be honest almost 80% of items are sold out and you get excited over nothing. You would probably miss some good deals as well because it's just boring to go through pages of sold out items to find one that is not.
They tend to have good deals on electronics and appliances but sometimes I find amazon or ebay to be cheaper. So it's always worth it to check on all three. Usually they give you a 10 pound voucher when you buy so you can save on your next purchase. As for furniture, It's cheap and looks ok but I always find their stuff shaky no matter how careful I was putting it together. In one dresser the drawers kept falling out of their place and I had to put cardboard behind the things that hold the drawer into place so it would be the right size.
Argos' website is actually one of the better retail websites in the UK for me, the simple reason for this, is because it allows you to purchase items for delivery, but equally it allows you to purchase items which you can subsequently pick up in store. This is a simple premise but one which many companies fail to implement meaning online and store prices are different.
With Argos this isn't the case, although they do encourage you to collect your purchase in store by charging for delivery.
The website itself is easy to navigate, offers a full range of movement, from finding items through word search, through to looking in categories. There are special sections for offers as well as links to items which will soon be gone.
The Site is fairly well set out with decent navigation buttons at the top, which then take you to specific sections such as furniture, games, kitchen etc, these then devolve into equally large sections, or you can use the free typing box in the top right hand corner to type something in to see if they have it.
The main part of the front page will have any special offers on it, whilst there are also sections for clearance goods and items they want to get rid of.
The site is functional, easy to follow and everytime you add something to your basket you can see in the top right hand corner the item has been added, the site tells you whether you can purchase online for delivery (Explaining the delivery fee) or tells you that you can immediately reserve the item for a number of days, for collection from a nearby store, it tells you where the product is available in your locality and lets you pick your best option.
I've found this great, especially for special offers like Xbox controllers which sell out everywhere quickly when they have a sale, using the reserve for purchase instore is great, you then go in, take your reference number to one of the instore machines, type this in and pay for it, which works perfectly.
You can follow the website on Facebook or Twitter, the only downside i'd say about delivery is that £5.95 for a small item is incredibly expensive and I would definitely mark the site down for this, when competitors deliver for nothing. Overall this is the biggest downfall of the site, its great for reserving collections, but delivery is pointless as the product value then becomes much greater than rival stores.
I have found that Argos.co.uk have such a wide range of products that you can pick up pretty much anything your looking for, especially if it's something for your home. They have quite stylish collections of things for your home too at a very reasonable price, my personal favourite being the 'Inspire' collection. The website is easy to navigate with everything being organised into separate departments and categories, their search facility is also good and you can usually find what you are looking for by typing it into the search bar on the site.
Argos have their own value range too so if you are on a tight budget and are looking to buy appliances for your home you can pick them up very cheap. For example they sell their own make kettle and iron etc. for £5. When you place an order online you have the option to select a local store for you to collect your order from which is free, or you can opt for home delivery which i believe is £4.95 - reasonable if your buying something large like a sofa, but expensive if it's only something small your buying. They also have online exclusives so that you can get some special deals by shopping on their website.
I have to say i've bought many things from Argos, mostly on their website and i've had no problems. I even got my corner sofa from Argos for £300 and it's fantastic considering the price. They do try and tempt you with an Argos store card so that you can spend quite a lot on their website, but it has a pretty hefty interest rate so be aware of that. I do reccomend Argos especially if you are looking to buy things for your home or to buy toys for the kids.
The catalogue firm Argos has been around for many years and sometimes just the thought of going into a town centre to browse through their latest offers and items can be just silly so you want an easier option so the website they have definitely assists people in making a purchase decision.
I have found that the website is easy to navigate around with a search feature at the top of the main page and this makes the whole process of searching really good but if a product you are searching for cannot be found by name if you know the catalogue number this can work in your favour because the item is located immediately.
If the item has an offer on currently you have this on their website browsing for you to look at so that makes it very good indeed. The items you look at can be easily reserved at a local store and you do this via the option of buying and reserving the item. You usually get told if the item is in stock and you reserve the item so when you go into your local store you hand over the reservation number the item is there for certain as you have reserved the product.
The website lets you look through items in terms of price and this can help you looking for alternatives and if there are any promotions they display them on the main page of the website so they are there straight away and you cannot miss them at all.
The payment part is done via the reservation or you could order items directly to your home and some items are exclusive to purchase online so you cannot obtain them inside a store they have in your town so that does not help much as the postage can seem pretty expensive for some of the smaller items.
All items in the catalogue you get from the store are online which is good and if you manage to find a bargain even better. I find the layout very easy to look through and most links take you directly to a page you want to find. I do find occasionally if you are after an item and you type the word in exactly as you might expect it to appear sometimes the website cannot find any results. This can easily frustrate you because these results in you losing an item you might want.
I think the website should try adding more keywords to searches so you can find items even when you might not have had an exact match. I feel the website colour is good and it is easy to work your way around and there is plenty of help on offer as well.
I shop at Argos stores regularly, even though I have to return or dispose of 1/3 of the things I buy because they are either broken or have been clearly used and not properly restored. But, for some reason I keep shopping there!Anyway I needed some curtains to go with some new blinds and straight away though Argos. As curtains could be heavy and the ones I wanted weren't in stock at my local store I wasn't keen on the thought of lugging them around so decided to order them online.
Finding the curtains on the website was no problem, and I was able to place the order fine and received a confirmation email. I was very disappointed to learn that for such a small item they still charge a £5.80 delivery fee (more on Saturdays) which by todays online standards is terrible. When buying I was also given the opportunity to pick when I wanted the curtains to arrive (not when I would like them from or after etc, but the actual day I would like them). I can't remember the exact time frame but it was similar roundabout the usual 8am-7pm times. So anyway I chose the next Wednesday as the delivery day which was the earliest available. I was up early on the delivery day waiting for them to arrive. I waited, and waited, and waited and guess what? No curtains! Of course I couldn't phone the customer services because they close before the delivery timeslot closes.
The next day I phoned them up and got through to a lady who just said 'they haven't sent them out yet' and she would have to place the order again. Once again that's another day I have to wait in for them. Yet the day came, I waited and waited and once again no curtains! Back to phoning customer services the next day. She said 'for some reason they aren't sending them out' and all she could do was re-order them again. I told her to forget it and I wanted a refund. She said this was fine and processed it, and to wait up to 2 weeks for it to appear.
2 weeks passed and no refund appeared so once again I'm back onto the 0870 customer service number. I was put through to a thoroughly unpleasant man who asked me a total of 4 times if he was speaking to the person who placed the order, as he clearly didn't believe me. He made no effort to be pleasant and after going in circle with him I hung up and phone back and got through to someone a lot more helpful. She checked my order and said lots of notes had been placed on it but nothing had actually been done! She was the first to actually apologise and said she would issue the refund.
The refund appeared in about 5 days, but they didn't refund the P+P charge! I also received a letter the same day with a £10 Argos Voucher attached. This letter was the template of template letters, incredibly generic, made no actual references to what happend or why they were writing, and the signature wasn't handwritten either. I threw this straight in the bin. So in closing, I had an absolutely terrible time with the Argos website and will not be using it again.
