You know how i managed to purchase all that bedding for a tenner the other day? Well I needed a new home phone….my old one was faulty and there was this terrible crackle on the line whenever i dialled out or anyone called me. It was seriously annoying.
Well i found another bargain this week, this time on a new house phone…
I saw a home phone at Argos.co.uk. for only £17.12 p….and it should have cost £68.49 at proper price.
Only that price wasn’t for one phone, and it wasn’t for two phones, it was for three phones!!!
Only when i got to the store to collect them….they hadn’t got any left, despite my reserving the item online!
My heart sank…and then the cashier said, ‘so instead, we are going to give you the set of 4 phones instead…is that ok?’
What did she mean ‘is that okay’?
Be still my beating heart.
I smiled and tried not to show how thrilled i was, ‘that will be fine, thank you’ i said.
I can only guess, since i can’t find the quad set on the online store, that the price of the quad phone set must have been about £75.
So not only have i saved one heck of a lot of money and eliminated the problem of awful crackly telephone syndrome, but this set also has an answerphone facilty. In addition to this, since i only had the one landline phone in the house, i would have to try to get downstairs in time to answer it when it rang with the old phone …..and wouldn’t you just know it, on the ocassions when i had to try to get downstairs in time to answer it, it was invariably a cold calling telesales clerk/message.
And i have an ex directory number.!
Anyhows, now i have one phone in my bedroom and one in the kitchen and one in the lounge and no longer have an asthma exacerbation trying to get to the phone before it rings off!
Am i good at finding bargains or am i good?
Here is a pic of the box my phones came in (click to ‘go large’).
4 phones for £17.12p!!!!
Spying a bargain doesn’t get much better than that!
