Could Sainsbury’s Be the New Owner of Argos?


In a sudden turn of events it emerged recently that Steinhoff,  – a South African company that was interested in purchasing Argos – has decided that it will not make a formal approach to buy the retail giant as it pulled out of the proceedings just 2 hours before a deadline to make a bid against Sainsbury’s.

This means that Sainsbury’s bid of £1.4 billion to purchase Home Retail Group (the parent company of Argos) is the only one at the moment and they are currently free to buy Argos for this amount.

If the sale goes ahead it could mean that we will see some Argos stores closing as Sainsbury’s plan to open Argos concessions within their own stores, saving an estimated £160 million each year.

It is however important to note that this isn’t a “done deal” and Sainsbury’s have just as much scope to change their mind as any other company has to come foward and bid. Only time will tell…

The Best Places to Find an Argos Discount Code

If you have been looking online to find the latest working Argos discount code then I should imagine that you’ve found quite a few disappointing websites. There are many sites out there who will claim to show you the voucher codes and deals that will offer you the biggest savings the next time you shop instore or online at, however when it comes down to it many of these websites simply cannot deliver.

Luckily there are a few good websites out there that show codes that will actually work. VoucherSlug was one such website that showed working Argos discount codes. It’s actually quite a good discount code website in general, as I managed to find voucher codes for a few other websites that I often visit – most of which I could not find codes for anywhere else online.


Occasionally when you think you’ve found a good promo code that’s worth applying to your order, you add the products that you want from Argos into your shopping trolley and fill in the lengthy checkout form only to find that once you go to enter the promotional code it’s expired!

However more often than this it seems to be that the code never existed in the first place. This has happened to me a few times recently where I’ve had to call Argos themselves to try and find out if the code I was trying to use had actually expired or whether it was just a glitch. I then on more than one occasion got put through to a senior manager who informed me that the code never existed and that it was made up.

I also found Groupon to be a good website for these voucher codes. I must admit it’s been a while since I’ve used Groupon and I didn’t actually know that they started to offer useful codes such as Argos discount codes, as it used to be daily deals for spa weekends and electronic devices to remove leg hair.

There were a couple of other websites out there that had Argos discount codes but to be honest I hardly think they were worth mentioning because they just seemed to be scraping them off of other websites so it was a bit touch and go as to whether or not they would actually be reliable. If you’re looking for a code, discount or deal that you know will work though, you can’t go far wrong with a reputable website such as VoucherSlug for your Argos discount codes.

Argos Bank Holiday Deals


The Easter bank holiday for 2016 may already be gone, but there are still another two approaching in May and a further one in August before the excitement begins to bre for Christmas 2016. That means that there is ample opportunity to save big the next time you shop online at Over the Easter Argos had their Bank Holiday Extravaganza where they were offering a free £10 voucher for spending £100 or more as well as a free £5 voucher for spending over £50. As per previous years it is highly likely that this deal will continue into the early and late May bank holidays, when the majority of us are beginning to think about buying things for our gardens in time for the Summer.

The cool thing about the Argos Bank Holiday Extravaganza is that they don’t only last for the bank holidays. They usually tend to start about 2 weeks before each bank holiday so you have plenty of time to stock up and make your purchases and still get those free £5 and £10 vouchers.

There are no voucher codes needed, you will automatically receive the vouchers when you spend over £50 or £100 in store or online at If you have an Argos store card you can also have the money credited to the card to make life even easier. If the Bank Holiday Extravaganza isn’t running the next time you shop online at Argos, then read about the best places to find an Argos discount code.
