    It's the Opticon GPRS

    Unless you have absolutely zero phone coverage it sounds like a hardware fault or an issue with the SIM in it. Time to call the helpdesk basically/

    Yeah I think you're right, sent them an email. Will phone now and hopefully get it sorted.

    Just out curiosity I ordered over €100 in vouchers on the 7th and they still not arrived is this normal to wait this long. On my rewards catalogue it says processed order.

    Postal vouchers take rather a long time. Gave up and only use electronic ones now.

    Must add up the take over the time I've had it, it's approaching a grand anyway

    Thanks I hope I get them soon they are for Christmas presents.

    I recently signed back up for Shop & Scan again. Still awaiting the equipment but looking forward to having some vouchers to spend this time next year :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,482 ✭✭✭Gormal


    I got my Argos vouchers within a week. Never had to wait long for them, said when I ordered 5 working days.

    I would get in touch with them about the vouchers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,482 ✭✭✭Gormal


    Actually I just checked my emails and they have a backlog, I ordered mine on 23 Oct and it was just over 2 weeks before they came

    Got it eventually, messed up the scanning on week 1 I think (well we forgot to do the addtional "Organic or not" "Pre-packed or Loose" etc. scans for fruit and veg.

    It feels odd to just scan without entering individual prices which is what I was used to before. Still it's much quicker than before. Only pain is having to upload from PC, the previous one I had was just in a cradle plugged into the wall, I didn't have to think about it.

    I applied a few years ago (when I first read this thread) but never followed through and they kept emailing me. So a month or two ago I decided to complete the application and got the scanner (Opticon USB) today. An Post made a mess of the envelope but I think I got everything. :)

    Hi anyone who does shop and scan have you noticed your getting less points now. I always used to get 600 a month now I'm getting 570


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,288 ✭✭✭Virtanen


    Has always been 570 for me

    I've just been checking old statements and they all say 600 till now
    I've messaged them just to see if there is a reason why. Thanks for your reply.

    I've gone from 600 to 540, haven't had time to ask why

    They want me to call the help desk so I'll do that I'll let you know what they say


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,482 ✭✭✭Gormal


    That's odd, I get 200 a week, 60 and 140 one for data and the other for receipts.

    IIRC they run two separate panels, one where you take pictures of the receipts (the one I assume you're on) and one where you scan the barcodes with a scanner

    I also get the 200 points a week like Gormal, for scanning items and for sending receipt(s). It requires scanning the barcodes with a scanner and also scanning in/photographing a receipt(s).

    You assume incorrectly, I scan the barcodes with the small opticon scanner and upload the a copy of my receipts along with the data.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,162 ✭✭✭OmegaGene


    I’ve always been getting 540 points for scanning the shopping and entering the price on scanner

    The internet isn’t for everyone

    Correct. I stopped uploading receipts


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,062 ✭✭✭stargazer 68


    Is there any other way to submit the barcodes - do they have other equipment I can get? Having problems with both laptops - won't recognise the device. I know its the laptops so just wondering if I can continue with this any other way.


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Motoring & Transport Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 66,499 Mod ✭✭✭✭L1011


    They may still offer the landline or GPRS scanners if you ask. These don't need a PC at all

    Had that error before. Is the scanner charged?

    Yup. Fully charged. Have had those issues before. Learned from mistakes.
