    argos clearance 12th Sep 08 at 1:54 PM
    Just thought you might be interested in Argos' 'outlet' shops. They are called 'Clearance Bargains' and are usually situated on trading estates. All of the goods have either been returned or are end of line. If they have been returned 'opened' but unused then they are 'Manager's Specials'. The rest have just been returned but Argos can't resell them in their shops because they are considered 'second-hand' regardless of whether or not they have been opened. None have been returned faulty (because they can't sell them on of they are.) I have bought loads of stuff (electrical items are particularly good buys - e.g. 42" sony bravia lcd tv with freeview - £399! works perfectly.) Google it for one nearest you - all of you in county durham - there's one in Stanley! Check them out, some super bargains.

    I just wanted to say that I bought a Indesit cooker (moonstone) fully wrapped never used for £249 at the clearence shop in stanley, in the Argos catalogue it was for £499!!! I will always shop there before I ever buy any goods.

    To reply to CHRISSYG I agree but the shop isnt always full of tat they change goods everyweek but for xmas presents for kids its excellent!! if your a single parent this shop is a godsend!

    We have got one near us (Walsall). I agreed that some of the prices are high compared to online, normally electronic goods as they are using RRP from the catalogue and prices can change a lot in this time. I suppose if you are looking for something in particular it is good to have some prices from other stores and not to get carried away with the RRP. It is also worth remembering that they do not have the same returns policy (e.g. 30 days if you do not like it) as Argos.

    If anyone's interested, the seller
    clearancebargains-uk

    on ebay is, in my opinion, selling ex-stock Argos items.

    I think the opening hours are 10-6 and 8pm on some nights. Open 7days a week. Also it is definitely them on ebay. As for the 'tat' it depends on what you think is 'tat'. I reckon you get what you pay for and to get bargains you have to be discerning about what you want - if you like it and you think its a good price - then its a bargain! I have definitely had some very good deals there.

    Hi All
    Forgive me father for I have sinned, its been about 6 weeks since my last post and since then i have
    1, claimed back some ppi
    2, found a site called www.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and its all about free stuff and what you have to do to get it. Im still looking in to it at the moment so, Il keep ya posted
    3, Filled in more surveys than I care to mention
    4, Complained to Mutual Points because I registered 3 cards (all in use) with their site about 4 months ago and no points have been added after 4 emails to them. I did recieve 1 reply after my third email asking me to be more specific about my query...... Grrrrr
    & MY GRAND FINALE
    5, I for the very first time in my working history "Got the sack" and have no idea what to do to pay my rent except sell my worth - Im 28 and dont have the first idea how to sign on so burying ones head in a bucket of sand hoping all will go away whilst mending ones pride feels good enough right now. Not the right answer I know

    Anywho, my nearest dearest would like me to ask if there is an argos clearence place anywhere near Gloucester???

    Peace out for now and thanks for listening.... Hope everyone is doing well


    big kiss

    Just be careful though - just because it's in one of these shops it doesn't mean to say you can't get it cheaper. So it's worth checking out the price in store and then check a few price comparison sites to see if it's cheaper.

    Clearance Bargains also have an eBay store: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Clearance-Bargains_W0QQssPageNameZstrkQ3amefsxQ3amesstQQtZkm

    Yeah I purchased an iPod Shuffle a while back and it was fine. I think it's all stuff that gets returned to Argos within the Argos 14 day money back period. It's a proper company. For memory cards I either use Play.com, Amazon Marketplace or mymemory.co.uk. I always buy Kingston because they're quality when it comes to memory.

    The shop is in Erdington high street, its not far from the city center really.

    The shop is called www.xcat.co.uk yes that is what its called, and its next to the Abbey bank, on the opposite side to Thorntons.
    Not got much to say really.

    You do need to watch the auctions set yourself a limit and wait till you can get what you want for the cheapest price.

    Brought it home looked it up online to see how much we had saved
    compared to other stores

    and am amazed -

    but when we googled it Argos them selves came up
    and the TV is on sale for £189.99..

    not happy at all...
