Argos Crazy Code toy deals
Argos has already launched its Crazy Code toy deals. Every Wednesday for ten weeks Argos reveals a new voucher code that customers can apply at the checkout to get a discount on selected toys. Each code lasts for a week. The online retailer has already had LEGO sets discounted. The current code is TOYS20 and gives you 20% off toys when £20 or more on toys. The deal runs from Wednesday, 6th November to Tuesday, 12th November.
The promotion is running on a range of toys including the Complete Barbie Home Set with 3 Dolls and Pool (was £55, £44 with the code) and the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron Collector Model Car (was £270, £216 with the code). PAW Patrol Mighty Lookout Tower is also included (was £100, £80 with the code).

Argos Black Friday deals 2019
There were plenty of offers on laptops last year, the general rule of thumb is a 20% discount from it’s RRP. For higher discounts we recommend you check the spec of the laptop. The Lenovo IdeaPad was one of Argos’ best selling deals last year, and we expect to see the Lenovo IdeaPad 330s, which already has 20% off at £399.99.
Apple could also be in the Black Friday sales, especially since Apple’s Black Friday deals at the Apple Store don’t offer discounts on products but offer giftcards instead.
The 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro could be on offer and the 13-inch MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro is already at a pretty good price at £949 – Argos’ lowest price ever. Buy it here.
PS4 Pro bundles
Argos said itself “Black Friday was [its] biggest day ever for video gaming,” so it’s likely to push the games console packages again this year, with a variety of bundles. Last year, the PS4 with Red Dead Redemption bundle dropped from £299 to £219. Games dropped in price too, with Tomb Raider down to £11.99 and FIFA from £52 to £38.99
With Fortnite still flying high the PS4 500GB and the PS4 Pro 1TB consoles are worth looking at, both come with Fortnite Neo Versa in bundles already.
PS4 500 GB and FIFA 20 bundle is currently £249.99 and the 1TB is £349.99 which we’d expect to see come down a bit.

PlayStation VR PS4 Camera VR Worlds
The VR headset on launch was £350 by itself, but last year Argos sold the PSVR PS4 Camera with VR Worlds bundle for £179.99. The package includes the PS4 Camera, which you need for the PSVR function, as well as a copy of VR Worlds. There’s plenty of minigames to keep you busy too.
The bundle is currently £259.99, but we expect the price to go down for Black Friday again.
- PS4 and Pro Black Friday deals
- Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals
You’ll see a pretty good XBox One deal this year judging from previous deals. The 1TB XBox One S with Minecraft and Forza Horizon came down from £249 to £179.99 and Battlefield V and Fortnite XBox One S bundles were also £179.
Controllers dropped in price too from £249 to £179.99 for the 1TB XBox One S and XBox One games were on offer, with Call of Duty: WWII cut from £49.99 to £22.99, Forza Horizon 4 went from £40.99 to £26.99. We may see price drops again as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available to pre-order.
While the latest iPad isn’t likely to be on offer the older versions will be. Argos has even flagged up the iPad as a possible Christmas gift.
The store has the iPad 2018 6th Gen 9.7 inch, which was in the sale last year, with £20 off it came to £299.
but it has a range of storage options and colours on iPads and tablets.
