Not Just For Offices

Many local and district councils already rely on Argos to help save money on a wide range of items when equipping their premises. But you might not know we’re also making it easier and more cost-effective to distribute products or grants to individuals in need.

Argos Gift Cards – physical or electronic – are used by many adult services, children’s services, charities and other areas involved in management of welfare-related funds. So if you don’t want to stock, store or deliver physical products yourself – using Gift Cards enables beneficiaries to arrange pick-up or delivery of their items when it suits them best. And with Argos eGift Cards, you can send them straight to their inbox and they’re ready to spend instantly. Perfect for those emergency situations when you need to get items to those in need fast.
