Argos card overpayment help!

Yesterday I paid £430.00 off my Argos store card using my credit card (didnt think it would work as many people say they don't accept credit cards as a form of payment), today, I paid £430.00 again, this time using my debit card, only to find that my credit card payment had gone threw and appeared on my Argos card online statement. Having then paid the amount again it will put my Argos card into positive credit (above my credit limit.) I tried to ring my bank to cancel the debit card payment but they said it has already gone threw. Does anybody have any experience with this and know how I can get the amount refunded to either my debit card or credit card. Any help will be much appreciated.

    It may bounce back automatically within a few days, but otherwise you'll have to ring the card issuer and request a refund, or just spend it.

    just call argos and ask for a refund
    Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.
