    Reclaiming from Argos additions 10th Mar 17 at 11:54 AM
    Hi, I was wondering who I would write to about finding out about claiming back ppi from the Argos additions catalogue. I had this years ago and I'm sure I had ppi on the account? The catalogue is no longer around so had a look and saw it was with Shop direct, who have no customer service details.

    Thanks for any help.

    Argos is not and was never Shop Direct.

    Shop Direct is/was Littlewoods.

    Argos continues...

    Argos Additions was launched in January 2001. In January 2004, Argos Additions was bought by Shop Direct Group (previously Littlewoods plc). Their name then changed from Argos Additions to Additions Direct until 2009 when Very was introduced.

    I also had an Argos Additions account and Very (Shop Direct) were only able to go back as far as April 2003, I seem to recall that the account numbers changed too. It's worth a shot contacting Argos themselves and seeing if you can claim the PPI back

    No such thing as 'claiming back'
    You make a complaint about the way it was sold to you and you need to have proof that backs your complaint up .

    If you are not sure if you had ppi , how can you say it was miss sold ??
    make the most of it, we are only here for the weekend.
    and we will never, ever return.
