    Ever wondered what happens to Currys, Comet, Argos Internet sales returns?

    Many items purchased from Currys' Comet & Argos are returned sometimes used but quite often unused as people simply change there minds when the item is delivered for reasons such as "it dont look the same as it did in the picture on the net" etc..

    Well I found myself asking what do the do with these returned goods? surely the cant scrap em cos most of the time the goods are brand new & in full working order. So I found myself searching about on the net (as you do) & I discovered that all the above have special sites where they auction returned goods. The Agros site only sell in bulk but the Comet & Currys Sites auction single items, some with no reserve set.

    If the goods are in anyway damaged, they will tell you exactly what the damage is, also make note of the delivery charge then its up to you to set the price you would pay taking this info into consideration. I bought a Stainless Steel Kenwood Dishwasher for 70 that reported multiple dents on front but when it arrived, it didn't have a mark on it. You can even purchase seperate extended warrenties on the goods, if you, Like I dont find the 6 month stantdard warrenty good enough.

    Anyways the Comet site is http://www.clearance-comet.co.uk/ Argos https://www.argosclearance.co.uk/default.aspx currys site is currently closed for a revamp but here's the addy anyway https://www.currysauction.co.uk/browse.asp

    Not necessarily...

    These are internet returns under the (statutory) return-7-days-after-delivery-for-full-refund-under-DSTR items.

    You do not get this ability 'in store', any 'no quibble' guarantee (e.g. Argos's 28days money back guarantee) is an extension of your statutory rights on top of the Sale of Goods Act.

    Those looking for single items from Argos rather than bulk would be best checking out their ebay shop: eBay UK Shop - Clearance Bargains: Audio MP3 Players, Digital Cameras, Laptop

    For info on IPTV hardware, software and even EPL streams... visit our IPTV sections.

    Known about this for a few years, had various results...

    Argos on eBay = Sold me a PSP Go! (GPS system), never recieved it, had to make a PayPal claim to get my money back.

    Comets Website = the Auction for a 42" LCD TV actually ended up more costly than the store retail price!

    Curry's Website = Got a Hotpoint Aquarius 110 cheaper than instore, machine was in pristine condition.

    We have got an Argos clearance warehouse in our town ,that sells returned goods and stuff thats no longer in the catalogue at silly prices . They rented the warehouse for a month in January 2006 to sell off the xmas stock and it was such a success it's been going ever since .
    It's in Corby Northants if your ever passing this way
