You don't need to have barcodes, there is a section for that sort of thing as well.

I'd probably lose interest! When I get back from shopping it's usually fairly late and I just to get it put away!

You have to scan your name, the store you visited, how much you spent, all the bar codes (or use the ones on the pages for fruit and veg etc) and then once a week upload it onto the website to collect your points.

I'm lazy, I don't know if I could be bothered! I know my mum has done it for years, but like I said when I looked at the website it said I needed an invitation.

I'm sure somebody posted that there was a way to do it. It can be a pain, especially if you have a lot of shopping to scan.

I used to do it & one year ended up with enough Argos vouchers to buy a Wii for my kids for Christmas which was a real surprise cos they certainly weren't expecting such an expensive present but packed it in cos I did find it time consuming.

I don't find it too bad - just scan the stuff as I put it away after shopping and then upload at the weekend. Doesn't take me long and helps fund each Christmas!

I'll find the time hopefully if I'm lucky enough to be selected. I'll have to wait and see. x

Hope you do Lesley - I really don't find it a bind. It's just a case of remembering to upload at the weekend!

thanks for these links, think its something I could do. Do you just scan the bar codes of each item you buy regardless or where you buy it from. I get from all over the place.


Ok I just watched the video on the website and it seems that you have to upload after each set of barcode scans/each shop. If I go to three shops in one week for different foods etc., then how do I do all of them. I understand how to scan each receipt but its the different sets of barcode scans I am wondering about
