Thanks for the headsup, that's 20% off a few bits I had just sitting in the basket

I wonder if they are trying to retract some of the 20% sales due to demand?
They adjusted some of the prices when I had a look. Someone linked PS4 deals for £299 prior to discount. When I clicked on the link they had increased to £350.

Looks like demand was strong for some things.

I didn't get an email. Maybe the codes were shared more than predicted?

I haven't used eBay for ages due to numerous issues. Hopefully customer services are better than they were and your 27 minutes isn't a waste.

Just got off the phone to them, funny 27mins hey Kerr?

Anyways, the transaction went thru but was refunded some time later. Ebay are honouring the discounted price but I now have to speak with Paypal to have them resubmit the payment again.

Strange. What if it's the seller who has pulled the plug on the sale?

Hopefully it's sorted ok.

I've been watching some wheels for a couple weeks, nearly pulled the trigger boxing day, glad I didn't! Deal went through with discount, got a shipping notification today, well chuffed.

I bought a salad spinner at 16:47 yesterday using this code and it arrived at 10am this morning! Crazy fast.

It was Ebay who cancelled my order, nothing to do with Argos or Paypal.
They actually pay Argos the full price for the goods with Ebay taking the hit for the 20% discount.

Ebay are refusing to honour the 20% discount as the code has expired, they have refunded the £107.99 back to my Paypal account which I now have to wait 5-7 days for!!

I've escalated the complaint with Ebay but they weren't interested at all, simply standing by the 'code has expired' quote.

I've asked numerous times why the order was cancelled and they will not tell me why.

Carrot dangling at it's best by Ebay as some Googling say's they do it all the time, offer discounts and then cancel orders without customers knowing until the codes expire.

Wrong on so many levels as the order was placed, paid for and in stock and is still in stock, the only thing now missing from the equation is the Ebay discount code!
