Up to now, https://www.argos.co.uk/search/giffgaff/ would show three identical but differently packaged sims.
Currently, only one remains and that cannot be ordered for delivery, implying no stock in the warehouse. There might possibly still be some in individual branches, but most branches seem to be showing "not in stock here" where previously most branches had them.
It may just be a temporary distribution problem but the impression is that they won't be available from argos in the near future.
If it's a distribution problem, then I suspect other supermarkets may no longer have them either.
Well spotted @harrrrrry!!
I wonder why this is. How are the sims normally distributed to Argos and elsewhere?
I also wonder whether this scarcity is exclusive to Argos, or whether as you highlighted- if it is a distribution problem- whether it'll effect other supermarkets too.
It's harder to tell with other shops. Most of the others only ever had them at their checkouts -- there was no necessity to add them to their web sites. But argos is primarily built around knowing a catalogue number and/or using click and collect, and it was always possible to check stock and reserve one for 24 hours, rather than relying on chance at other stores.
They have not been available in our local stores for ages since the charging for them as preloaded according to staff when I bought a phone from them ,
more interesting to me was on your link if you scroll down page was giffgaff number rip off
How can they connect you to a none xsistent phone number
Probably like the other call-connect
services rip-offs out there, they connect you to O2 Customer Service.
That's marketing for you. I'm sure marketing people get sent to college to learn how to confuse and deceive people as much as possible without actually breaking the law.
But not quite as confusing as Sainsbury's. which will apparently sell you either a £10 or £15 goodybag for £1:
