Argos Clearance Bargains

Many years ago (more than I care to remember, if I'm honest!), I used to work for Argos. My job was to maintain the smooth running of the warehouse, first of all in their Felixstowe store, and later in the busier Ipswich store. Even though I say so myself, I was quite good at it! In fact, the powers that be thought so, too, as they used to send me to other stores that were experiencing problems with their own stockrooms and I became quite a good troubleshooter.

As most of you probably know, the Argos system of shopping centres around its in-store warehouses. These are these the hub of each store and not only does the person in charge have to make sure that they work efficiently on a day-to-day basis, but he or she also has to completely revamp them every six months, when the latest Argos catalogue is launched. Of course, they also have to cope with various seasonal supplements along the way. It's quite a complex process!

Because of this change and because of the restricted space in stores (and because of the fact that Argos has such huge buying power!), any stock that is surplus to requirements is sold off cheaply, often at a huge discount!

As staff, we used to love this, as we'd often bag the bargains in our own stores. What we didn't realise, though, was that the main Argos warehouses must have been brimming with surplus stock sometimes, but it was a logistical nightmare to sell it.

THEN SOMEBODY INVENTED THE INTERNET.....AND THEN EBAY!

Nowadays, the Argos Clearance eBay Store is one of my favourite pages on the internet. I subscribe to their newsletter and often find myself buying items at 60% or more off the normal retail price. Often, these also come with FREE DELIVERY!

The Argos Clearance Store sells all manner of brand new items, from very small things like make-up and toys, right up to expensive items like cheap hi-fi systems, pressure washers and more.

And they don't just sell brand spanking new stuff; Because of the Argos Promise, too, many perfectly good items are returned to stores and sold via the Argos eBay page as refurbished. I'd hazard a guess that many of the refurbished cameras and refurbished vacuum cleaners etc. have probably had to have no refurbishment work whatsoever. My guess is that most of them are as new, but have been checked by a proper engineer and are exceptional value. As they come with a guarantee, I would have absolutely no qualms whatsoever about buying refurbished Argos goods!

SO, WHAT ARE THE BEST ITEMS TO BUY FROM THE ARGOS DISCOUNT STORE?
Well, just like the High Street and out-of-town Argos stores, the Argos clearance outlet on eBay stocks a wide range of stock. Personally, I usually find myself drawn to the audio, home electric and camera sections, as well as the camping accessories on occasion. It is also very good for cheap mobile phones, sat-nav equipment, jewellery and watches.

The best idea would be to have a look for yourself CLICK HERE to visit the Argos Clearance Outlet on eBay.
Happy bargain hunting,

Another great way of finding cheap eBay bargains is to look for items that haven't had many bids. Just because they haven't received bids, it doesn't mean they aren't any good! Quite often, the item will be poorly described, have a bad photo or just finish at an unsociable time. Use the drop down box below to find items in each category that finish soon and have had 3 bids or less:

Items With 3 Bids Or Less



And here's a favourite for many....the good old 99p auctions! A lot of people start their auctions at 99p or less, partly because they believe that they'll attract more attention if they do and partly because there are often promotional incentives to do so. The result is a LOT of items sell for a pound or less! Select a section below to see what I mean:

And here's one more trick to use. Type your search term into the box below. Select your postcode and distance you'll travel and get the results. If any of them take your fancy, check the descriptions and if it doesn't say that they'll accept collection in person, ASK THEM.
Not everybody does accept collection, but there is no harm in asking. I've bought plenty of stuff like this and you'll often find you can save a lot by cutting out the postage.

A few buying tips:

bullet Only fools rush in - don't grab the first bargain you see...however tempting!
bullet Don't avoid Ebay - if a seller asks you to buy direct, avoid them. You lose all your protection from Ebay.
bullet Pay with PayPal - again, you get extra protection this way.
bullet Read the small print - be SURE that you know what you're buying!
bullet Make sure you can pick the item up - bulky items often need a van and some muscle!
bullet Make sure you can store it - bulk deals sound great, but ever tried fitting a million widgets in your hallway?
bullet Have fun - buying a cheap bargain can be great fun. Enjoy it!
