“Living on past glory, now absolute pile of ****”

Written on: 14/04/2017 by Melvin141 (1 review written)

Waited in all day on my one day off in months - Bank Holiday - didn't even go in the garden in case I missed delivery and get a text at 15:23 saying can't be delivered - why offer a same day service if you can't deliver, total joke! That's a day of my life I will never get back. Sad, sad service!… Read Full Review

“Never answer the phone !”

Written on: 12/01/2017

I bought a large item as a Christmas present which ceased working a week later. I called customer service who said I would have to speak to the store I collected it from. Tried several times over 2 days but no answer! gave up, called the manufacturer direct and had a replacement delivered to my door in 48 hours. Well done to them - Argos please take note… Read Full Review

“Argos Norwich Longwater”

Written on: 19/12/2016 by nickst17 (10 reviews written)

Two things: Firstly, when you try to order online on a Sunday morning and the item is unavailable, the system tells you that it will be available from 4pm that day..........a little tricky when the stores close at 4pm.......so this is very misleading. This is the best bit - went into the Norwich Longwater branch today and what I bought was the last item currently available in stock. Having watch one member of staff throw the item - in its box - on to a shelf, I moved forward to collect it. I… Read Full Review

Sometimes the wait times are crazy, they seem understaffed when it gets busy and other times i see 100 staff when there's 0 customers in so maybe they should work their rota a bit better… Read Full Review

“Terrible Customer Service - won't ever shop at Argos...”

Written on: 24/11/2016

Having had several very reliable Panasonic microwaves in the past I chose a Panasonic made combi as a present for my daughter. After a month the house fuses tripped and the microwave went dead. Argos replaced it. Nine months later the fuses tripped and microwave went dead. Rather than replace like with failing like, Argos suggested a refund and said it would collect the microwave. The date arranged for Argos to collect the microwave came and went. No collection. Phoned and arranged another… Read Full Review

“Better than John Lewis for kitchen appliances”

Written on: 19/11/2016 by 268Shields (1 review written)

I bought a Delonghi toaster from Argos.com using their fast track. The item was available within hours of placing the order, I picked it up within minutes using the fast track queue. Perfect. John Lewis on the other hand were terrible. Took a few days for the item to be available for pick up, and then took 30mins for them to find the item when I went to pick it up. Argos wins hands down… Read Full Review

“Terrible delivery and extremely poor customer service”

Written on: 24/09/2016 by mcfathy (2 reviews written)

Arranged delivery for Mon 19/09/16, upon arriving at my flat with the fridge freezer, the two men declined taking it to my kitchen upstairs, then get me to speak to their manager on the phone. He agreed to send 3 men the next day to take it to my kitchen, agreed time from 12.00pm. The 68kg fridge freezer was left downstairs in my flat at the bottom of the stairs, with it clearly blocking our bikes, shoe box, frequently use storage, partly blocking our constant use bedroom, access to under stair… Read Full Review

“Missed delivery dates and poor customer service.”

Written on: 21/04/2016 by CWBW (1 review written)

On 24th November 2015 I made an order online for a three piece suite and was given a delivery date of 18th December between 10am & 2pm. I recieved a text message confirming this and my old suite was taken away the day before the expected delivery. The delivery never happened so I looked online and found out that the delivery had been re-scheduled for a date in January and at no time had I been informed of this. I rang the Argos customer service number and eventually got to speak to an Argos… Read Full Review

“Fast Track Mobile Phone”

Written on: 22/03/2016 by Allisonjc394 (1 review written)

Yesterday evening I ordered a mobile phone under their Fastrack system for collection at a local store. This morning I received an email telling me they had cancelled the order and refunded the money, without giving any explanation as to why. I looked on Argos's web site to find that the special offer had expired and the price had risen by £40 from £280. I phoned customer services only to be told that there wasn't sufficient stock and the order shouldn't have been accepted by their system. I… Read Full Review

“Mobile phone returns ”

Written on: 14/01/2016 by moby79 (29 reviews written)

I would like to update everyone regarding the 30 day exclusion policy for argos for mobile phones. Argos States once you purchase a mobile and unless faulty they will not exchange or refund . The terms and conditions surrounding there unlocked phones is vague as they do not garuntee that the network you require will work on one of there unlocked handsets. The store managers will insist that once purchased you cannot return as I experienced at the burton branch. I was advised I must be sure… Read Full Review
