After reading a few reviews of others experiences with Argos, I thought I would do my own review as I have ordered a lot of things from them in this way for convenience.

Advantagesdelivered to your door

Disadvantagesyou dont always get what you ordered!

"...then buy items directly from Argos and it was logged on the website. I loved going into it to see what we had been bought! We were given loads of Argos vouchers for presents so that we could buy some furniture with them. Vouchers cannot be used online, however you can go into a store and place your order for home delivery. Delivery costs £4.95 with a further £2.95 for a saturday delivery.

Let There Be Sims!

AdvantagesPre-ordered item arrived on release date in perfect condition. Customer service was very helpful.

DisadvantagesSystem errors, inability to check order status, no dispatch notice, inappropriate packaging.

"...was prepared to see if Argos could do any better. When I placed the order, having entered all of my payment details, I was presented with an error screen - oh dear!

Argos Direct - never again

AdvantagesGood choice, reasonable price

DisadvantagesVery slow (ie non existent) delivery

"...Therefore I decided to use Argos Direct to get a bed, bedroom furniture, plus a TV unit for the living room. After browsing through the Argos catalogue I identifed the items I wanted, and then looked them up on the website. This was quick and easy to do. I selected the items I wanted and payment was taken. As all the items weren't in stock I was told that someone would contact me within 21 days to arrange delivery. I then realised I needed a couple ..." Read review

Do you want it delivered to you!!


DisadvantagesTakes a while to get to you sometimes

"...the ideal furniture was at Argos as it was the right colour,size and looked great. Ordering was easy to do,selecting the items you want and then simply adding them to your basket.I decided to order Pixel Chix house too as it was on sale as that is on one of this years xmas lists (not mine by the way) and i ordered some batteries that were on offer too. When all items are added to your basket you can see all items listed with the price at the ..." Read review

Worst Customer Service EVER.


Disadvantagesbad service, faulty products

"...parts was defective. I called Argos customer service line and they told me that I had to wait 33 days or more for a replacement of the machine because they didn't handle spare parts. I told them that I didn't want to wait and they offered me a a refund for the cost of the machine but they will charge me the cost of the delivery, I told them that I didn't want to pay for the delivery clearly because this wasn't my fault but they just didn't care and ..."
