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

483 replies

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 feel like I really need a raven in my life.

Raven ordered. Likely to call him Steve. That's generally what we call things in our house.

PrincessHairyMclary · 23/10/2018 20:25

Those creepy houses on rightmove that always pop up on MN and we get weirded out by the owners random collection of clowns or odd ornaments tucked in the corner....this is how it starts!

50 people looking at the raven, 66 bought in the last 24 hrs.

I was going to suggest Christmas cards!

soupforbrains · 23/10/2018 20:45

Damn I was too late getting out of work so I wasn't able to pick Mortimer up today dammit.

Tomorrow it is.

Also kudos for John C Raven you little fucking genius!

I want a raven! Might have to change my halloween costume in order to incorporate it.

And i will name him Dun. Dun Raven

SwizzelsFizzers · 23/10/2018 21:01

I suspect the raven may be in the reduced section on 1st november

CarryOnScreamingValenta · 23/10/2018 21:03

SwizzelsFizzers Assuming there are some left after this thread, yes.

SoupDragon · 23/10/2018 21:04

I have just realised I should have named mine Russell as he is actually a crow. I feel so foolish.

Storm4star · 23/10/2018 21:17

So I asked DD to pick up my (already reserved) raven from Argos tomorrow and she looked at me as if I was absolutely mental Grin
I did try and explain the story to her but her expression didn’t really change!

Hollipopsmum · 23/10/2018 21:18

Love how menacing Colin looks peeking out the curtains 😂

CravingRaven · 23/10/2018 21:19

I need some inspiration for my Raven’s name, who I will be collecting in the morning....

And I finally have a Halloween name change Halloween Grin (was cravingcake)

TriciaMcMillan · 23/10/2018 21:19

Was just explaining at length to DH why we were getting a raven and he got annoyed about having to pause the telly to listen for so long and said 'enough about the bloody raven!'' I'll have to ltb won't I?

Storm4star · 23/10/2018 21:22

Sorry Tricia, definitely an ltb scenario!

KatyaZamolodchikova · 23/10/2018 21:25

Just about to order Quoth the Raven.

It will confirm to DP I have in fact lost the plot.

FlyingMonkeys · 23/10/2018 21:29

This is amazing! Excited for pic updates to follow... 😁

TriciaMcMillan · 23/10/2018 21:31

@Storm4star I know. I'll cite unreasonable raven related behaviour in the divorce. Steve the Raven and I shall live happily ever after.

ColinsVeryJolly · 23/10/2018 21:32


Colin is majestic

Why thank you 😊

IncyWincyGrownUp · 23/10/2018 21:33

Well fuck. Now I need a sodding raven!

(Anybody else follow the Ravenmaster on FB? Merlina is a proper troll!)

Fredathetortoise · 23/10/2018 22:00

I'm still hoping for the OP to report back on how effective her 'Ner ner ner' dance was at her DH when she took the batteries home

Rockbird · 23/10/2018 22:00

Ok hands up who's bought all the ravens from my local Argoses (sp?). There were loads when I reserved mine earlier and now they're all on order for Sunday.

BertieBotts · 23/10/2018 22:03

Storm :o
