Argos Enter Mobile Market

Argos has launched a new contract mobile phone service to customers available now through www.argosmobileshop.co.uk.

Customers are able to browse and buy the latest smartphone handsets from all the leading handset brands and choose from a range of contract tariffs with all of the main mobile networks including Vodafone, Three, Orange, T-Mobile and O2 through argosmobileshop.co.uk.

Tariffs start from £10.50 per month and customers can benefit from a special offer of up to £100 in Argos gift cards on selected handsets (subject to availability).

Once a customer has purchased a handset, it will be despatched for next day home delivery (subject to availability). Customers also have the option of purchasing insurance for their handset through the site.

Simon Barry, Technology Trading Manager at Argos, said: “We’re responding to the continued high growth in smartphone usage in the UK as more and more of our customers are demanding the convenience of shopping and keeping in touch on the move with portable devices. The number of sales made by Argos customers shopping with smartphones and tablets grew by 114 per cent in the first quarter of the current financial year and account for 14 per cent of our total sales.

“The service we are launching today offers any customer looking for a new mobile contract even greater choice and a great deal, all conveniently available through a dedicated website.”

The new offer builds on Argos’ existing Pay As You Go and SIM-free mobile phone range currently available in all Argos stores and online.

Argos has partnered with A1 Comms to launch the service.
