So ds1 has been saving his money for a table tennis table. We order one a month ago, it arrives after 2.5 weeks and one of the table tops is damaged. Wrap it all back up, call Argos for replacement they say 28 days at least.


so it's been a month, give them a call and they say, oh well we have no note of a replacement being ordered that'll be another 28 days at least.

So I'm telling the woman (who is talking over me) that this is completely unreasonable and it's the summer holidays, the thing won't fit in my house and the summer will be over before we get another one. She's blah, blah, blah and finally I say, shut the fuck up let me speak to a manager.

the manager comes on, I explain situation and say, what can you do for me? She goes off, says it will be another 28 days but she'll make a note on my order that we can play with it in the meantime. When new one arrives I'll have to just exchange the damaged part.

Can you get a refund and buy it from somewhere else?

Go in branch and steal some tiny pens to make up for the bad service.

Leave a review on their website, mention when you ordered it, how it was faulty and still no sign of being able to use it
I did that for my oven, after repairman being back and forward for weeks, and was still waiting on the part
Got a brand new replacemant oven the next week

I've had the same with Argos many times. Write lots of complains and bad reviews. State where you will be writing reviews on your complaints.

huh, you can get pencils in Ikea!!

Never set foot in there after they wouldn't take back a karaoke machine which broke after 35 days..."oh it's over the 30 day limit"
It is shite.
Buy from John Lewis. If anything goes wrong they will sort it. I returned a lunchbox which had a straight exchange with no receipt...and a full refund as well.

no john lewis here in ireland
as a matter of fact there's not help line in ireland anymore either. i hate to pay a fortune to call their number in UK (it's toll free in UK but not for us!)

[blood boils]

the manager thought she was being helpful. ffs. did she say, oh we'll throw in a voucher for your trouble?

no she did not
