    More deceitful, disreputable pricing practices from Sainsbury-owned Argos.

    Sainsbury should know - they're experts at it!

    They employ similar tactics when they offer the vouchers (e.g. spend over £100 get a £10 voucher).

    The real problem IMO is that people will blindly gravitate towards promotions without really checking for themselves to see if its good value. This kind of misleading prices is done by every retailer.

    Sadly, I expected this would be the case before I even looked at the site to check the price of a Lego EV3 Mindstorms kit. Before the promotion: £229.99; During the 3for2: £309.99.
    Buyer beware!
