Aftersales, returns, refunds & exchanges


Following guidelines, our stores in Wales will close from Friday 23 October at 6pm, until Monday 9 November, and we’ll be unable to accept returns to store during this time.

You can still return item(s) to any open Argos store or Argos store within Sainsbury's supermarkets across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, in line with our returns policy. Visit our store locator to find your nearest option.

Please see below for more information.


We hope you’re delighted with your purchase, but if you’re not completely satisfied there are lots of ways we can help.

Start by visiting our Product Support site. Here, you can access frequently asked questions about your product, receive set-up advice, download a manual and much more.


If you've changed your mind and need to return an item, we have extended our returns policy - any purchases made from 18 October 2020 can be returned up to 24 January 2021. Item(s) purchased before 18 October 2020, will still fall within our usual 30 days returns guarantee.

Simply, take your item(s) to any open Argos store or Argos store within Sainsbury’s supermarkets. In-line with our returns policy, please ensure your item(s) is:

  • Unopened
  • Unused
  • In its original packaging (with the tags)
  • In a resaleable condition
  • With its proof of purchase
  • You’ll also need to return any free items that came with the product

Refunds will be processed by the original payment method. If you paid on card, it can take up to 7 days to appear back in your account, with PayPal refunds taking up to 30 days.

We're currently unable to accept returns of large, 2-man items in store, but you can arrange a collection via our Live Chat team for both small and large items delivered by home delivery.


To exchange an item, just visit any open Argos store, or Argos store within a Sainsbury’s with your proof of purchase. Use our store locator to find your nearest store.

Exchanges are dependent on current stock levels.

If we’re unable to offer an exchange, we can process a refund via the original payment method.

If you paid on card, refunds can take up to 7 days to appear back in your account. PayPal refunds can take up to 30 days.

For further information on Tu clothing orders, see below.

Faulty items

First, we recommend you check our support site to see if we can solve your issue and save you the trouble of returning your item.

If you do need to return a faulty item, you can bring it in to any open Argos store, or Argos store within a Sainsbury’s, and we'll process it in accordance with our refund policy.

We’re currently unable to accept larger 2-man items in-store. You can arrange for collections of large items, however these are subject to delays:

Collections for items delivered after 1 March 2020: Have your order number handy and call 0345 600 4408 if…

  1. You purchased your order after 1 March 2020
  2. Your order was originally delivered (not picked up from a store)
  3. You’re returning your ‘whole’ order (all items on this order)
  4. You’re returning your item/s for a full refund (not exchanging for another product)

To arrange a collection for a ‘part’ order or an order before 1 March 2020, please speak to our Livechat Team.


If something goes wrong with your product, we may be able to have it repaired or arrange a spare part. And depending on the product, repairs can often take place in your home and save you the trouble of returning your item. Sometimes, calling the aftersales helpline can lead to resolving the issue without the need for a repair. Check out our Support Site to find the helpline number for your product.

Tu clothing

Tu clothing can be returned to any open Argos store, or Argos stores within Sainsbury’s, within 30 days of purchase. Please follow official guidelines for your local area, and wear a face covering when shopping in our stores in England, Scotland and Wales. Thank you for helping us keep our customers and colleagues safe.

We are still receiving Tu clothing postal returns. Just repackage the item(s) you want to return and post it back with the completed returns form.

*Return postage costs £3.50 which we'll deduct from your refund amount (unless of course it's faulty). If you no longer have the returns form, don't worry, grab a copy of your confirmation email/order number and get in touch.

Things to note:

  • Some items like food, pierced jewellery and underwear can't be exchanged or refunded, unless they're faulty. Our website and catalogue indicate which items are non-refundable.

  • If you're returning a DVD, music or software product, it must be unused and in its original sealed packaging.

  • If the item or packaging has been handled excessively, we reserve the right to reduce the amount we refund you.

  • We might ask for the product serial number or similar, to check the item was supplied by us.

  • Naturally, none of this affects your consumer rights.

Small item vs large item deliveries

Small items will have been dropped off by 1 person whereas large items are literally so large they need to be delivered by two people.

For orders that have been delivered, either by an Argos van or by post, there are a few items which can't be returned to store. If an item you've ordered falls into this category, you'll have been sent some additional paperwork that will suggest alternative options for returning it.
