Argos pulls out all the delivery stops to offer 12:01am slot for avid Samsung S10 fans to get their hands on the new handset

Argos is showing just what it can do with delivery by creating a special 12:01am delivery slot for avid Samsung fans keen to be the first to get their hands on the new Samsung S10 handset hours before anyone else.

 

A limited number of customers who pre-order the handset and who are successfully chosen to be part of the special service will receive the Samsung S10 at exactly one-minute past midnight on the day of the phone’s launch - Friday 8 March 2019. The phone will be delivered directly to the customer’s front door by the Argos Fast Track team, making them the first in the UK to enjoy the phone.

 

Argos has seen huge demand for pre-orders of Samsung’s flagship phones over the past couple of years, and with the leap in functionality from the S9 to the S10, Argos expects customers to jump at the chance to get the new handset first.

 

The service will be offered to customers living in London Zones 1-5. To apply for one of the limited delivery slots customers need to visit the Argos website after 8am on Thursday 21 February 2019 where details will be announced.

 

Phil Elford, Head of Technology at Argos, explains: “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.”

 

Those who miss out on a minute-past-midnight delivery will be able to purchase the Samsung S10 for delivery through Argos’s existing Fast Track delivery service, which offers same-day delivery in as little as four hours if customers order by 6pm. Fast Track delivery covers more than 95% of UK postcodes and costs just £3.95.

 

The Samsung S10 is available for pre-orders from Thursday 21 February and goes on sale across the UK on Friday 8 March 2019 at a retail price from £669.
