Aftersales, returns, refunds & exchanges

CORONAVIRUS – SERVICE UPDATE

To avoid any non-essential journeys and ensure the safety of our colleagues and customers, we have extended our returns policy and made changes to the items you can return in-store.

Please see below for more information.

Returns

To avoid any non-essential journeys, we have extended our returns policy. Any purchases made from 1 March 2020, can be returned up to 30 days from our standalone stores reopening.

You can return to any open Argos store, or Argos store within a Sainsbury’s - visit our store locator to find your nearest option. In line with our returns policy, any products you return will need to be unopened, unused and in their original packaging, with proof of purchase.

When returning an item, make sure you have proof of purchase, such as your store receipt or confirmation email. The item (and any free items that came with the product) will also need to be:

• unused (with any tags still attached) • in original packaging • in a resaleable condition

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. PayPal refunds can take up to 30 days.

Please note, for the safety of our customers and colleagues, 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.

For further information on returning Tu clothing orders, see below.

Exchanges

To avoid any non-essential journeys, we have extended our exchange policy. Any purchases made from 1 March 2020, can be exchanged up to 30 days from our standalone stores reopening. In line with our returns policy, these products will need to be unopened, unused and in their original packaging, with proof of purchase.

In the meantime, we are accepting exchanges at our Argos stores in Sainsbury's stores, which you can visit when collecting essential shopping.

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.

Tu clothing

Tu clothing can be returned to Argos stores within Sainsbury’s, whilst you’re picking up any essential shopping.

To avoid any non-essential journeys, Tu clothing orders purchased up to and including 8 June can be returned within 100 days of purchase. For orders made from the 9 June, our standard returns policy will apply.

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.
