What can I buy from Argos for £4ish to win a bet?

Shocksandboooos · 23/10/2018 10:40

I have £4 worth of Argos vouchers that run out on Friday.
Dh tried to throw them in the bin this morning, saying that I wouldn’t be able to get anything worth having with them without adding a lot on.
I need to win this bet as I lost the last one and haven’t lived it down.

I thought I’d cracked it when I found a pair of slippers but you have to pay online for TU clothes and the vouchers can’t be used online.
We have a 2 year old so stocking filers are a possibility. Please hit me with your best suggestions so that I can wipe the smug look off dh’s face. Grin

I think Beth from Argos has really excelled at the Question answering. bravo her.

Mortimer was very much in a flap this morning. I think he's a bit over excited for Halloween tonight.

Beth is fab - is she a MNer? And, if not, she should be!

I am a bit in love with Beth, she's doing a sterling job answering all those questions! Obviously Dave gave up after answering the first one.

Beth has to be a MN member, the answers are too good for her not to be.

I was In Sainsbury's earlier and there, all alone, was a raven on a shelf. I couldn't leave her. 😢 So Balthazar now has a wife, Merle. ❤️ It was love at first sight.

I discovered this thread too late and now no stores nearby have a raven left Sad

My life will always feel empty now.
