People who preorder the Samsung Galaxy S10 from Argos will potentially have it delivered at 12:01 on launch day, making them some of the first in the country to get the phone (those pesky influencers have theirs already).
If you’re located in London zones 1-5, you might be able to take advantage of the super-fast delivery, but only if you’re one of “a limited number of customers… who are specially chosen.” Helpful.
The offer is part of Argos’s Fast Track service, which delivers some items on the same day to 95% of UK postcodes for £3.95.
If you’re not chosen for the midnight delivery, you will still get your S10 the same day.
Phil Elford, Head of Technology at Argos, comments:
“Argos is all about getting you what you want, when and how you want it, so we’re delighted to offer a selected number of our customers the ultimate in convenience – one of the most sought-after new handsets delivered right to their doorstep just after midnight. We’re confident that Samsung fans will be thrilled to get their hands on the new handset before anyone else
Our Fast Track delivery service is already market-leading, offering customers nationwide delivery in as little as four hours, and we’re excited to see how customers respond to this special service.”
Apparently, lots of people have been ordering their Samsungs from Argos in previous years, and they’re expecting high preorders again.
Still, even if you live in the designated area, we wouldn’t recommend buying it from Argos specifically for this promotion unless you won’t mind if you’re not “specially chosen,” because it’s not at all clear who will and won’t be picked.
