The great Argos rip-off sale?
Argos have some clearance items on sale, but what they haven't told you is that a number of the items were already reduced to a price lower than their sale offerings.
You'll be wanting some proof won't you?
Have a look at this tablet dock currently on sale for £6.99. That's half price according to Argos! Well, not too long ago, Argos were selling it for £1.99. In Argos' defence, in the small print on the item, it does say that it was for sale for £1.99, but it isn't exactly obvious.
Argos are selling a number of toys that were cheaper before the sale price too. One HUKD user said that they "ordered the Apparat 7" accessory pack [for] £1.99 I was a day late collecting it the price shot up to £35.99 .....inflation or wot?????"
OR WOT?????? indeed!
Of course, Argos won't be the last and certainly aren't the first to do something like this with sale items, but it is worth shouting about because, if you're thinking about getting stuck into the Argos clearance, it is good to know that you can check the 'additional information' just beneath the product spec, so you can be sure you're getting a bargain, rather than something that has been jacked up in the sale, when it was previously cheaper.
