Advantages: reserve, stock checker, sales and deals
Disadvantages: delivery charges
Argos.co.uk is a good way to purchase items from Argos easier, even if you dont want to have something delievered but want to collect it from instore instead. I use Argos.co.uk before I go to one of their stores to collect what I want because there is an option where you can see whether the item is in stock in your nearest store. This is very useful as you may make your journey all the way to your nearest store to find out your item isnt in stock. I have done this many times before I discovered this stock checker. To secure your item so you definitely get it, you can reserve it which they will give you your reserve code so when you go in store you tell them your code and you can then purchase your reserved item. This is handy if there are only a few of the items left in stock.
When you first go on their homepage you will usually see any deals which are currently happening or if there are any sales which helps you not to miss out on grabbing yourself a bargain.
If you are not sure where your nearest Argos store is or want to find some further out of town then you can use the store locator option which you can find all the information about that particular store.
Finding an item is fairly simple as there is a search bar which you just type in the item you want. If you know the item code then you can put this in which will bring up the exact item you want. You will find that if you type the item for example 'nintendo wii' it will come up with many things such as nintendo wii games and accessories.
If you want to purchase something from of their site then you will have to pay their delivery charges which is why I wont order offline especially since the delievery charge isnt exactly cheap and other sites such as Play.com will delivery for free.
In conclusion Argos.co.uk is a good to see if your item is in stock or to reserve it.
