Same day delivery from Argos?
They've announced that they're trialling a same-day delivery service for online purchases in certain bits of the UK. It'll be running via their 'Fast Track' service.
So what's the scoop? Well, there's going to be three delivery slots per day, 7 days a week for £3.95. If you order something before midnight, Argos can get it to you the next morning between 7am – 1pm. If your order is placed by 1pm, you can have it delivered on the same day between 2pm and 6pm. For any orders placed by 6pm, they'll offer you a delivery slot between 7pm and 10pm.
At the moment, it'll only be available in the South East, but it looks like a nationwide roll-out is likely. That won't stop your cynicism about the whole thing, will it?
In addition to all this, Argos already offer the Fast Track service for in-store collection in selected stores, for purchases that you have made on the internet.
