A multitude of brands, a variety of products
Argos is one of the biggest multiband stores in the United Kingdom. Located conveniently throughout the country, it serves millions of customers every year who want to find original items for the lowest price. It offers a variety of delivery and pick up options and makes shopping for literally any item - a breeze.
Argos is part of a well-known and much-loved group - Sainsbury's. With its wide catalogue of products, it's currently one of biggest retail groups in the country and rightly so - their dedication to customer service and offering their shoppers only the highest quality products brought loyalty beyond expectations. By being the most trusted seller in the UK and Ireland, it provides the customers with all the essentials by being accessible to everyone at the same time.
Store locations and shopping
You can find your local Argos with an easy-to-use search tool on the website. You will then see if it's possible to pick up the items you buy or if you need to go for the delivery. Over 800 stores offer more than 60,000 products from different categories and over 30,000 employees are always happy to serve you. The popularity of the store cannot be underestimated - it's currently got 1 billion online visitors. It's a staggering number, and it's no wonder people love it so much.
There are different ways in which you can shop at Argos. One of them is to pop into the store. You will find paper and virtual catalogues there, and you can fill out the order form on site. You will see the products currently available. On another note, you can always try shopping online with Argos' website. It's available anytime and anywhere, and you can quickly find everything you need. Even if the item isn't available in your local store, you can still order it for delivery.
It's not a surprise that in order to serve their customers the right way, Argos offers various delivery modes. Delivery of all items is available throughout mainland UK and Northern Ireland. In some cases, shipping can also be arranged to Scottish Islands, Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Man. There is also an option of having Fast Track delivery. It only costs you &3.95 and is available seven days a week. You need results - Argos has got you covered! What does Fast Track mean exactly and how fast is that? If you order by 6 pm, you will receive the item before 10 pm ON THE SAME DAY. You also have a choice of time slots so that you don't need to wait at home or the office for the entire day. This option is available for products which have the Fast Track badge next to it.
What if you can order and pick the product up yourself? Argos stores have created a special Fast Track counter which allows you to collect the product before all other customers. What is more, you can pay by the counter if this option is feasible in your local store and if your item is located in it. It's just so convenient!
Finally, if you're not in a rush and you are happy to wait, you can opt for Standard delivery in which the products are dispatched the next working day from placing the order or for Royal Mail delivery which will happen for you within four working days. The latter option is completely free!
Refunds and returns
Sometimes we might want to return an item. We simply change our mind, or it appears that the gift we bought isn't exactly to another person's taste. In the case of most products, if the product isn't damaged or used, you can return it within 30 days. What is more, you don't just have to bring it back to Argos - if you had it delivered, it would be picked up from you for free. You will be offered an exchange or a full refund.
You can return the item to any store. So, if you bought it in one location and you're currently in another, that's not a problem at all. It makes unwanted gifts management so much easier, doesn't it? All you need is a proof of purchase which may very well take the form of a receipt from the till or kiosk, a confirmation email, an electronic receipt or your order number. That's it!
The law states that you cannot dispose of certain products by placing them in the landfills. It sometimes makes getting rid of big appliances problematic. Argos wants to help you and the environment with the problem of excess waste so that whenever you have a new item delivered, the old one will be taken away. You won't have to worry about arranging for transport, and the new appliance will also be installed for you. It all depends on your needs because some customers prefer the installation only service - in which case they disconnect the old appliance themselves or installation and recycling in which everything is done for them. Choose whichever you prefer and enjoy more free time and a clean conscience!
Argos understands that their every customer is different and has got different needs. The variety of payment options makes it easy for everyone to shop there - from a student looking to furnish their dorm room to an elderly couple wanting to exchange a few items in their house.
Additionally, to regular types of cards, such as Visa, MasterCard or Maestro, and American Express, you have a few more options. You can opt for an Argos card, which is basically a credit card with 29.9% APR. Read more about it on the website to find out if and what benefits you can enjoy when you use it.
There are also various gits cards you can use. One of them, often used in a multitude of stores, Shop4all is a very convenient mode of payment. However, it's recommended to make sure that there is always enough money available on it.
You can also make it easier for yourself to buy a present for the person you love and appreciate by giving them a gift card. This way they will get exactly what they need and what they like, and you'll be happy that you didn't spend money in vain. With a gift card, the other person can pay for the products both in-store and online, which makes the entire idea even more convenient.

Those who have a pet at home, know very well how many smiles they can bring. The unconditional love we get from those furry or not creatures is priceless. However, as with any other family member, they might also require specialized care from time to time. To ensure you are always covered, and visits to the vet don't ruin your finances, you can choose your pet insurance from Argos.

Choose from four options - accident only, time limited/12 months, maximum benefit and lifetime.
