Same day delivery from Argos?

20 August 2015

argos logo Even though Argos can be a bit 'free jazz' when it comes to delivering your goods, they're not letting a little thing like that get in the way of their ambitions.

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.

    I'd be up for that - if I order something whilst I'm still at work it will turn up in the evening and is cheaper than me needing to get a taxi to carry something heavy home. That's if they open their eyes and realise there is life outside the M25.

    Went into Argos and found they've replaced the catalogues with Samsung tablets. Just like the internet site, fine. And then you find out you can't actually pay there and then like a website and have to join a massive queue to pay at a till! Argos - combining none of the upsides of Internet shopping with all the downsides of a bloody shop.
