You can not expect all items to be dicounted all of the time and how do you know it was at £48 on the 24th as i have not seen anywhere that says that and if it was that price on 24th and you wanted one then you should have got one as it was over 50% off the rrp so how much more did you want off?
I am sure that there are many 100s if not 1000s of items that are cheaper today at argos then on the 24th but you have just found one that was on a very good special off before xmas and has gone up more since then but is still over 25% off the rrp
One thing that I did notice with an Argos promotional leaflet a few weeks ago. The item was advertised with a £68.00 saving, making a total of over £360.00 required for the purchase. Yet in small print it stated 'sold previous £298.00'. So perhaps one can assume the item was £428.00.
But Argos do make it quite clear, the price you pay, is at that days price when buying from a store, or on-line if the item is being delivered.
I know because I looked at the price on the Argos web site on the 24th. Obviously Argos have now removed the cheaper price from there website. Also on the Argos site is a note in the additional information that reads
* Please note item 4230522 has previously been on sale at £48.89.
Silly me, I didnt see the point of a round trip of 100 miles to buy it, when i will be passing the shop on the 30th anyway.
100 miles round trip? where do you live, think i have about 10 stores within a 10 mile radius.
is there any chance that argos had a specific coffee maker sale before xmas as i noticed this is not the only one that was alot before xmas.
this machine is still at a good price because i can not find any store that has close to the price it is at now. or you could wait to the 16/01/09 as it states that how long the current price is valid and hope that it goes up and not down after then. I also imagine that before xmas it would have stated that the price was only valid to a certain date but i guess that is easily missed.
