4 days only: 3-for-2 at Argos

Posted by ,
Millennium Falcon

From now until Sunday, it's 3-for-2 on all toys at Argos, in-store only. You can reserve online and pick up at store of course, and if you're hoping to buy three of the same set to maximise savings, it will be best to do so before the weekend for your best chance to find the stock.

Mysteriously, the Black Pearl has disappeared from their system. I can think of three reasons why this might be:

  • They don't want it available whilst this offer is on;
  • They weren't supposed to be selling it yet. The latest shop.LEGO.com catalogue states that it'll be available from the 1st November, so someone in LEGO probably read of its availability here and asked them to stop selling it;
  • It's sailed into the Bermuda Triangle never to be seen again...

Actually I think the second one is most likely. You could try your luck and ask for it I guess. The stock number is 901/3823.

Thanks for that BP stock number Huw, wanted to ask them directly and having the code should give me a better chance of acquiring it, they definitely had it in stock at my local store when I checked online the other day.

I was hoping #8043 would be available for 3-for-2 when they said ALL toys. Maybe they don't sell that set in-store :(

Argh.... Why do they always have these promotions on mid month??? As it is I've already spent my small lego budget for October. Why cant they do them at the end/start of the month when people have been paid! I'd take advantage of it then, but as it is will have to hide my wallet again unless I want more nasty letters and charges from the bank.....Don't they understand its an addiction!!!!

3 for 2 saver:
Alien Abduction + The Knight Bus + Creator Log Cabin!
Thankyou Brickset for the brilliant shopping tips all year. Its a shame Argos still tortures us with 3 year old collectable sets that they no longer stock but there are still some good deals to grab.

Boots have their Christmas 3 for 2 deals going but the Lego selection is not much to shout about just yet, worth a very quick look in store. Actually Boots online says free delivery + 3 for 2 so perhaps worth a look indeed for specific sets. Oh dear, just 1 large item per customer.

If only I knew a couple of people I could split the price on the unimog with. :/

Thanks for the Black Pearl stock number, I'm going to give this a try and see if they let me have one.

Hello there citizens of LEGO! You can reserve and collect the Black Pearl using the Argos telephone Check-and-Reserve system. If you can, get 2 more LEGO fans involved and you could use the 3-for-2, getting a Black Pearl for £56!

Strange - the Black Pearl is already on sale in the United States at the Lego stores. It's funny seeing it next to Queen Ann's Revenge I think it's called... because for a while I wondered how the Black pearl could be less. But side by side, Queen Ann's Revenge really does look better.

@avacadoturban

I'll go in with you for a black pearl if you want. Do you know anybody else who'd have one?
If not there's a couple of other things for a similar price I'll have!
Let me know if you wanna do it.

^ I don't think you have any chance of getting a BP anywhere, I cheched last night using checkstocknow.co.uk and not a single store shows any stock. Even the listing on the Argos site is odd. Shows the item but no option to buy!!! If I were a betting man I would say they have held it back while this short 3-2 is on and it will show available next week ;)

I managed to get a BP today in Bracknell, so some Argos may give them out. Shame that there was nothing else available in store for same price so I has to get a couple of pricier things. Still happy though. Just need to convince wife it was a can't be missed offer

I struggled today to find a store close to me today with lego in stock, last night before the site went down i was just reserving the police station,port and fire station when it went down. now nowhere near me has the police station and all the prices have gone up. Hope to have better look in the manchester store tomorrow.

If your local argos has a touch screen stock checker and the black pearl is out of stock, you can then use the option to check other stores nearby. It will show you the quantity each store has. I bought mine the other day so they are out there!

Agree with @jongoodall. I was in Argos Swindon Greenbridge last night and you could pick up 2 Black Pearl's in-store.

Plenty of Black Pearls in Exeter just need someone else who wants one!

Just out of curiosity, is the Argos 3-for-2 as difficult to make good on as US TRU's version of this promotion? It doesn't sound like it from the comments here.

@sinfanti - Argos are much better at giving you any 3-for-2 without any restrictions. It's just hard to find a single store with 3 of the same items.
