Have a free day today and thought I would start Christmas shopping with toys at Argos.
But wait, I ask myself when will the 3 for 2 on toys be on?
Nothing worse than thinking you are bought and wrapped and then realising you should just have waited a few weeks to save a fortune.

I always get love to shop vouchers and wait for the 3 for 2 at Argos, I'm sure it's usually the end of October beginning of November and sometimes one in December, but it doesn't usually get announced till the day before.

I'm certain I read somewhere 25th or 27th September.

I've got my list ready and have picked some stuff up on other deals where it's cheaper but I am excited!

One of the items I had my eye on went reduced and is now out of stock so I'm hopeful that they get more in before the offer even at full price.

Have read it's next week.

Ooh good. Hope it's next week.

I've been wondering this too. I'm sure it's usually about now, because it's usually the first Christmas shopping I do each year!

DS1's birthday is on Tuesday - once we've had that, all thoughts turn to Christmas grin.

Are keyboards (musical) ever included? Or am I just kidding myself?

Apparently it's starting on Wednesday not sure how long it's on for tho

NapQueen Tue 20-Sep-16 08:14:39

Usually a week.

It's annoying me.

is it all toys? does anyone know if the Design a Friend dolls are included?

nic266uk Tue 20-Sep-16 20:52:25

Yes all toys, I got design a friend doll, car & wardrobe last year in the 3 for 2 if that helps!

ClosedAuraOpenMind Tue 20-Sep-16 21:01:03

Yes, confirmed on Martin's Moneysaver website.

Starts today ( 21st Sept) for a week. All toys and selected kids bikes ( up to 20" wheels).
Video games and consoles excluded.

Yey. Just reserved all my Argos stuff. Toy's are us are doing 3 for 2 on all lego and Thomas stuff too if that's any help to anyone.

NapQueen Wed 21-Sep-16 10:43:35

Been today and got a few bits. The playmobil blind bags are great for Stocking. 1.99 each and on 3 4 2.

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Wed 21-Sep-16 11:22:55

I have reserved six things for DD & another six for children of friends who we normally buy something for.

Some things are available immediately - others not until 4pm, so I'll physically go to town in the morning to pick it all up!

One of the things I've reserved for DD is a Lego Advent Calendar. They're great, but I do feel slightly bad spending £20 on an advent calendar. Not this year grin.

ReginaBlitz Wed 21-Sep-16 11:22:56

Not everything is included is it though but crap really!

NapQueen Wed 21-Sep-16 11:29:26

Yeah all toys.

ReginaBlitz Wed 21-Sep-16 11:33:45

And also a lot of the stuff in the offer were reduced already yesterday ! And now back at full price.. That's how they do it so you aren't actually saving, they tried to do it to me last year I reserved the day before when an item was £17 cheaper but when 3 for 2 started the next day it went up to full price, I told them I'd reserved it at X price so not paying full.

ReginaBlitz Wed 21-Sep-16 11:34:59

And it's not all toys.. Maybe you have got lucky on the stuff you want but the Bosch kids toolbox isn't in it, and a couple of other bits I've tried. Also bikes aren't in it.

Throughautomaticdoors Wed 21-Sep-16 11:39:58

I have 9 things but some are more expensive than others. Will they let me pay for them in three lots? So I can group the stuff that costs the most and least together - otherwise I will only be saving about £30 when I could save more like £70

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Wed 21-Sep-16 11:59:42

Through - I would reserve it as three separate transactions. So put the three most expensive items together & reserve/pay for them. Then the next three and reserve/pay for them. And then finally the cheapest three things as your third reservation number.

You can still collect them all at the same time if you are collecting.

Regina not much seems to have the "purple 3for2 splodge" next to it - no. But if you put the things you want in your basket, the reduction will show. Not absolutely everything is included, toys in the "Clearance" section aren't for example. Everything else is though!

I don't know about bikes, but I don't think they are actually classed as "toys" are they? confused

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Wed 21-Sep-16 12:04:57

Regina I've had a quick look at the tool box you wanted - it isn't included, but I think that's probably because it's a delivery only item.

The Black & Decker workbench is in the deal & also has £15 off to start with. Would that be any use?

ReginaBlitz Wed 21-Sep-16 12:41:22

Ahh that might be why the other bits aren't then.. I assumed bikes wouldn't be but saw someone mention on a different thread that selected bikes were or was it this thread?!! And also regarding the prices unless you do them in seperate transactions it will just take off all the cheapest things, so 5 things at £30 and 4 at £20 it will take off 3 things at £20... Bit crap doing seperate transactions online though as you are paying repeated delivery!
