As you may well be aware, I am a massive fan of Argos and their ability to stay ahead of the times. Their original concept of catalogue shopping in 1973 was light years ahead of all the other stores, with shops like Screwfix only just beginning to catch up with them 40 years later.
Argos have just given the competition even more to chew on after opening a new digital concept store in Old Street (ironically), London. The store is packed with the latest and most cutting-edge technology to make the shopping experience even faster and more seamless, by promoting the FastTrack system.

This advert is actually getting on for two years old now but I still love it and thing it pretty much sums up everything that's so good about Argos. I've never actually seen this in the TV, as it's a minute long I suppose it's probably too long as TV adverts tend to only be about 30 seconds long. Maybe it's been played in cinemas? Either way it's been viewed by over a million people online, 463 of which have given it a thumbs up on YouTube - including me. Enjoy.

Despite the fact that I know it has been possible for at least a couple of years, I only used the Argos Click and Collect service offered on eBay for the first time last month. Needless to say I was actually very impressed with it, and as per usual Argos has not failed to disappoint me.
I was not actually expecting my item to be there if I’m honest, as lately whenever I shop at Argos I online shop online so I have not actually been to my local Argos tore since I moved into the area almost 3 years ago.
However I went to collection point and there was my eBay item – a new car tyre – waiting there for me to come and show my order number so that I could collect it.
The Argos Click and Collect service offered by eBay is a very good idea because as you may well know Argos has over 750 stores across the country, which means there is no shortage of safe collection points that you can get your eBay items delivered to. This is particularly handy if you have to work so will not be at home to sign for your parcel, and you have an Argos store nearby. There’s hardly a town in the country which does not have an Argos so it’s good that they now offer a handy collection network. I’m so impressed with the whole system that I think I might add it to my list of things that are unique about Argos!

Did you know that whenever you make a purchase online at argos.co.uk you can save money on the overall cost of your order by using an Argos discount code? Also known as voucher codes, these alphanumeric strings of text can be exchanged for money off of your next purchase – however much you decide to spend. Just search online for ways to get money off at Argos.
If you’re new to the concept of voucher and discount codes, then don’t worry because I will tell you everything there is to know about the Argos discount including where to find one, how to apply it and how to ensure that you never miss a great deal or sale at Argos every again. It’s an extremely simple process, all you need is a computer with an internet connection, as you would if you were shopping anywhere online.
The first thing you need to do is to complete your online shop at Argos. So, go to argos.co.uk, browse or search the website for the things that you want to buy whether it may be things for the home, gifts for a loved one on their birthday, garden tools, pet accessories, Christmas decorations – you name it, they have almost 35,000 different products to choose from so I guarantee that you’ll find something that you like. When you find something you like, click the relevant button in order to add it to your trolley. When you’ve made your selections, click on your trolley which should be at the top right hand side of the screen. Click the checkout button and look for the total of all of the items within your trolley, including the fee for delivery. Take not of this number, because you won’t be paying quite this much and it’s fun to see how much you can save!
Next you need to actually find a working Argos discount code, so head over to voucherlsug.co.uk where you’ll find an up-to-date list of all of the voucher codes and deals that you can take advantage of today. Scroll down the list of voucher codes (there could be quite a few), and look for the one that will save you the most money. In the unlikely event that they do not have any promo codes available, check the official Argos promo code page.
Once you’ve found the code that you like the look of, click the ‘Reveal Code >’ button and a new window will open with the Argos website open and your trolley full of items that you’ve selected. Go back to the voucher code website page, copy the code which has now been revealed, and paste it into the relevant box on the checkout page. Click the ‘Apply Code’ button and you should see that the total of your order has decreased.
And that’s it. That’s all there is to it. You have now used a discount code and saved yourself some money in the process. All you have to do now is bookmark the voucher code website so that you can go back and have a look whenever you need to find another Argos discount code.

I love Argos – as do many of the important people in my life. I’ve always loved the way that it has been completely different to virtually every other shop out there on the high street. Despite this, it’s managed to become one of the largest named brands of homeware in the UK with over 750 stores nationwide – without bowing to the pressure to be more like any of the other shops (many of which have since gone bust). So in tribute to Argos and the fact that it’s not afraid to be different I have compiled a short list of things that Argos are renowned for.
1. The Pens. My earliest memory of the Argos pens is in the early ‘90s when they were dark blue and were of somewhat much better quality than the turquoise pens that you see in Argos shops today. At one point every kitchen in the UK had at least a couple of these pens stashed away in a drawer somewhere – and they were pretty handy too, except if you need to write more than a phone number down with them because they were far too short to hold comfortably.
2. The Collection Point. Back in the old days you could spend as long as an hour waiting at the collection point for your order if you visited during the busiest time of the year on the approach to Christmas. Nevertheless they still never put out more than about four chairs, one of which would always be broken and the others so close together that you would rather stand up than sit in such close proximity to a fellow Argos shopper.
3. The Batteries. One of the only things that Argos ever did display like a regular shop would be batteries, along the area where you would queue to pay for your goods. They were quite pricey but at the time you couldn’t buy anything from Argos that didn’t need batteries – especially children’s toys.
4. Elizabeth Duke. My local Argos and the larger one in the closest shopping centre had an Elizabeth Juke counter with its own dedicated team of staff who were separated by the other Argos employees by the fact that they wore a different uniform and name badge. Although I only ever purchase small silver rings for about £7.99 for my mother at Christmas there, I always loved to have a quick look at the jewellery on display while my mother would be standing at the collection point.
5. The catalogue. It’s not possible to leave an Argos store without taking a catalogue – even if you already have several at home already. They are usually dumped next to the exit on a huge pallet where it’s a free for all to get the newest edition so that you could take it home and circle all of the items that you want for your next Birthday or Christmas.
And there you have it – five things that make Argos, Argos. Shops like Screwfix have adopted the Argos approach to selling, as it involves managing a lot less floor space that gets trashed by the general public, but they don’t come close to Argos. Argos was the original, which is why it took the others who have copied it almost 40 years to catch up and use the idea. God bless you Argos.
