Tracking down Argos clearance bargains in your town

6 September 2009

rockpaperscissorsWhile you've long been able to find Argos in-store clearance bargains by searching out the Argos Online Clearance Shop, it is only recently that you could find out what you really needed to know: whether you could get it in the store nearest you. Argos has fixed that, allowing you to search out clearance bargains specific to your postcode or town. You can also still search by category if you are able to travel to grab a clearance bargain.

To maximize your chances of getting a great deal on a clearance item, use a three pronged approach:

1. Search by category or postcode on the Argos Online Clearance Shop.

2. Also check out the official Argos Clearance Outlet on ebay. Some of the items are new, and some are refurbished. The refurbished items are clearly labeled. (Beware: they only take PayPal, and you won't get any Section 75 protection.)

3. Turn loose a couple of shopping bots like moneysupermarket.com or pricerunner.co.uk on any deals that look promising and see if they can find the same thing cheaper elsewhere.

Let us know in the comments if you have other tricks up your sleeve for getting the best clearance bargains.

    "Search by category or postcode on the Argos Online Clearance Shop" Sorry it doesn't work! Most of the stuff I checked for on my postcode, are not in stock when you check....

    pricerunner.co.uk can't be called a 'shopping bot' - merchants pay to list their products on it, same with similar sites (never looked at MSM to be honest, however). Make use of it for sure, but search elsewhere also 'cos there's plenty of other places that won't be marketitng on shopping portals!
