How to reserve online with Argos

Reserving products online is a fast and free* alternative to having them delivered with Argos. The catalogue company have over 800 stores in the UK, so you are always in close proximity to one.

By using one of the two Argos collection methods, you will receive faster in-store service and be able to pick items up at a time of convenience. With 50,000 products online, you are able to get the most popular of them immediately, and any others can be transferred from a bigger store range to a smaller one on the same day if needs be.

With both options, you simply add items to your online trolley as normal and choose which store you would like to collect from.

The Fast Track service

This online facility means you pay for the products beforehand in order to receive a faster and efficient service in-store. This is the quickest option, as when you place your order you receive a confirmation email or text with a customer order number and collection code and take it with you when collecting from a dedicated Fast Track counter.

The service enables even further flexibility as you can hold the item for 7 days and pick it up when it suits you. If your items aren’t available for immediate collection they will be moved to the store of your choice and you will be sent a confirmation email/text to inform you when it is available.

Reserve now and then pay in-store*


This is a free service which allows you browse online via the website or the app and check availability of your desired objects. It is available on all items that can be reserved in store and don’t require home delivery and once reserved, are held until the store closes the next working day.

As above, you will receive a reservation number on your confirmation email or text message which you take to the till or quick-pay kiosk in store where you can pay for the items and wait for them to be ready at the usual Argos collection point.

Occasionally, some products that need to be moved to a chosen store will not be available for reservation and Argos will ask for you to pay first. Then it will be sent to the store you choose for collection and you can go to the Fast Track counter to collect it.

If your make your reservation before 1pm it will be ready the same day after 4pm, and if done before midnight it will be ready to collect at in-store from the opening time the following day.
