Cheers!

Its kind of crazy really, I made the original version in a weekend or so just have an excuse to do some web development, it pretty awesome that people still use it 6 years later!

What is possibly more weird about it is the code for stock checking has not changed for the 6 years (well i moved from PHP to Node 2 years ago, but its still the same parsing logic), which says a lot about the amount the argos website has changed in that time!

€9.83.

Cheapest before this, according to checkargos, was €35.09.
When I go to order this, I get to the reserve screen, and it can be ordered for pick-up, but when I do, it just goes to the out of stock screen.

Apologies

I only went as far as seeing that it could be ordered for collection. Didn't actually try and place an order.

No need to apologize. Not your fault in the slightest. Seems to be a regular trick/error by Argos.

No joy collecting either Lego set,the lady at the counter showed me the company policy of paying the price on the day but seeing as I reserved to collect she's going to have a word with her manager about lost sales and get back to me..... there's still hope that I might get them.

Basically when you check stock on checkargos, it loads the same Argos page that you would load if you checked the stock on argos.ie and reads the stock level from that page. It does that for every store that you have selected.

I have not needed to change the above in 6 years, which means that page on Argos has not changed, significantly at least, in 6 years. For a website to have not changed in 6 years is pretty much insane!

You should head over to rte.ie if you want to see a website that hasn't changed. There's posts in the news/about us sections that are from 2010.

Not sure what you mean by trick!

I was online after 7 this morning and there was lots of stock to reserve. I reserved one and will pick it up tomorrow.

She asked did I not get the call, I said no and I'm after driving for 45 mins after getting the text. She said that they weren't allowed override the price in-store, but she talked to the manager, who eventually did come out and sold to me but only after stressing that this was most unusual and i was a very lucky ablelocks. Both staff very nice and professional....but it does look like there are new protocols for dealing with errors if the customer service head office have to be consulted...(I overheard the call..)

I still have to go in tomorrow to get the ninjago one though...
What happened?

I wouldn't have left it until tomorrow.

If they realise there's a mistake, they mightn't sell it to you.
