START 20 with free lifetime maps

Argos seem to be offering a START 20 with free lifetime maps http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/1337088.htm#pdpPromotions.

 

Is this a mistake on their advertising as I cannot seem to find any information about this on the TOMTOM website http://www.tomtompromotion.com/Maps/gb/.

 

Or is this a separate Argos only offer?

Good question. But also Argos is pulling your leg. They said it was £199. At no point it was £199. It always used to be around £120(ish).

Re: START 20 with free lifetime maps

Possibly they mean this price is the satnav and the price of lifetime maps? Although I agree this is misleading! The START 20 could be had for 100 pounds last year.  I might phone TOMTOM and Argos to clarify if the lifetime maps are part of the now expired promotion or if they are a separate offering from Argos. :-)

Hi :smileyhappy:

Argos like many retailers do not always get their sums right.

They did however charge £199 for the Start 20 "starter kit.

I believe this included traffic reciever.

So a bit misleading.

However would be about right.

Value wise.

As posted elsewhere.

A work colleague has just bought the £99.99 deal. 
Has the free case + free lifetime maps.

 

I believe this means that Argos & TomTom has struck a deal to help clear out this model.

Hey, thanks. I am guessing that it is not part of TomToms free maps promotion but simply Argos chucking in a free maps for life code with the device?
