Argos in cheap telco deal
Ring ring, ring ring
Argos, the UK's high street catalogue retailer, has become a discount telco offering punters up to 50 per cent off the cost of national phone calls.
Those signing up to the CallSave service from Argos Telecom are being offered up to 1,000 free minutes of local calls for two months as part of a promo to get people signed up.
Argos reckons that as the UK's biggest seller of land-line phones (it flogs 2.5 million phones a year apparently) it makes sense to offer punters a discount phone service at the same time.
Argos, which is part of the giant Great Universal Stores (GUS) group, already offers other services including insurance and loans as well as the many items contained in its catalogue.
Argos Telecom is operating the service in tandem with Quip! - the discount telco backed by BT and Unisys. ®
