Ah, yes. The really important bit. Once we have received and checked your phones we promise to make/post you payment on the same day!! Snappy.

We'll send you an email to confirm payment has been sent.

I've received an email confirmation that payment has been made but I've not received it?

We post all payments via 1st class post. If your payment has not arrived within 5 days, it may have been lost in the post. In this case, please contact our customer support team and we'll reissue payment.

Where can I use my Argos Store Card?

You can use your Argos Store Card in any Argos or Homebase store in the UK.

When can I use my Argos Store Card?

Once you have received your Argos Store Card, you will be required to activate it prior to use. This process ensures your card value is protected if lost in the post.

Once activated, you will be able to use the card within 24hrs.

How do I activate my Argos Store Card?

To activate your Argos Store Card please call 0345 640 0879 (charged at local rate). You will be required to have your Argos Store Card and reference number to hand.

I've lost my Argos Store Card, can I get it replaced?

We can only replace cards which have not been activated.

Once your card is activated please be very careful not to lose it as it cannot be replaced!

Where can I bank my cheque?

You can deposit your cheque into any UK bank that you hold an account with. It should normally take 3 working days to clear.


I've lost my cheque, can I get it replaced?

The good news is - yes we can reissue a replacement cheque.

The bad news is - a £6.00 charge will apply and will be deducted from the cheque value. This charge is to cover the fee we are charged by our bank to cancel the lost cheque.
