Argos sofa deals shopping advice

Argos is constantly updating its sofa deals, which can make choosing the right sofa for you and your home extremely difficult. 

Our advice for shopping for Argos deals is to dial in on what you need, as well as what you want. After all, you need to ensure that any new sofa you buy fits the bill in terms of practicality and aesthetics. So, go through and consider the following:

Size: How many people live in your house? How big is your living room? Will this be your main sofa, or will it be placed in the guest bedroom or your home office? You should ask yourself all of these questions before buying a new sofa, and make sure that you choose a size that works for your space. If you're unsure where to start, check out our guide on how to measure for a sofa.

Functionality:  There are so many different types of sofas out there, from sofa beds to recliner sofas. It's a good idea to go through and research these types of sofas to determine which functionalities would work for you. For example, you can weigh up whether you need a chair bed vs a sofa bed or whether you want a sofa with reclining qualities so that you can sit back and relax while watching TV. 

Style: A sofa needs to be practical, but nobody wants an ugly sofa in their living room. Because of this, you should try and tie your sofa style to your living room decor. If you have a modern living room, opt for a sleek and sophisticated modern sofa. If you've opted for cottagecore vibes, go for something softer and squishier. 

Material: If you live alone, you don't need to worry too much about sofa materials. But if you have children or pets or tend to eat your dinner on the sofa, you should definitely consider material when you're buying an Argos sofa. In most cases, it's best to go for something durable and easy to clean. But if you're not sure what your options are, check out our guide on how to choose sofa upholstery. 

Comfort: This is something that you really need to think about when taking advantage of an Argos sofa deal. After all, as Argos products are found primarily online or in Sainsbury's stores, you don't get the chance to try before you buy. This can be difficult for those who want to check the comfortability of the sofa. So, it's always a good idea to read the item description fully and read reviews to learn as much as you can about the comfort level of your chosen Argos sofa deal. 

When to shop

Argos really is in a league of its own when it comes to discounts. Sometimes, this retailer will offer random sales events without any notice - we assume to clear out their old stock and to make room for new on-trend pieces. 

But outside of these sales events, the retailer also follows in the footsteps of other retailers by using key dates within the year to plan its promotions. We've rounded up information about these key dates below, as well as how to snap up the best Argos sofa deals during these promotional events.

Bank holiday Argos sofa deals

In recent years, bank holiday deals have become a major part of the consumer discount calendar, with many retailers offering big discounts on these days. In fact, Argos even has a section on its website dedicated to its bank holiday offers

These discounts are especially prominent in July and August, when consumer spending often increases.

In fact, those who are looking for the best bank holiday Argos sofa deals should be able to snap up some serious bargains on these bank holidays. You'll find that sofas and sofa beds are normally discounted drastically during this time, as these products aren't affected by seasonal trends. 

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Argos sofa deals

The term 'Black Friday' originated in the US to denote the first day following Thanksgiving when retailers would cut prices to draw holidaymakers to shop their store's sales. Driven by global brands, the price-slashing event soon crossed the pond, and now Black Friday – closely followed by Cyber Monday – has become one of the UK's biggest consumer extravaganzas, rivalling traditional Boxing Day sales. 

Often hailed as the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday always falls on the last Friday of November, so the next time it will officially roll around is Friday 29th November 2024.

That said, in recent years, the event has spread to encompass more than just one day, with retailers starting Black Friday discounting earlier and earlier so that a full Black Friday 'week' of discounts isn't uncommon. In fact, in 2022, we saw retailers running Black Friday promotions throughout the whole month of November, and the same happened in 2023. Black 'month' now seems to be a thing.

Whether or not you agree with the rampant consumerism Black Friday has now come to represent, there's no denying it can be a great time for Black Friday Argos sofa deals and Cyber Monday Argos sofa deals.

Last year, Black Friday Argos sofa deals were the best yet. The retailer slashed prices on some of its best-selling and highly-rated sofas and sofa beds. This year, we expect similar discounts. In fact, we expect them to be even bigger and better!

We'll be keeping our eye out for all this year's top Black Friday Argos deals and Cyber Monday Argos deals right here, but make sure to bookmark the Ideal Home Black Friday home deals page to get alerts for all the biggest Black Friday homeware sales as they launch.

Boxing Day Argos sofa deals

In an effort to draw in the post-Christmas shopping crowd, Argos always goes hard with its Boxing Day sofa deals. They slash prices of corner sofas, sofa beds, recliners, and more. 

After all, hectic festive experiences force many people to re-assess their sofa situation - and Argos is on hand to help people buy something bigger and better for a fraction of the price. 

January Argos sofa deals

After the Boxing Day Argos sofa sales, you'd expect the retailer to put its sofa prices back up. But the January Argos sofa deals are just as impressive, and the retailer tries to take advantage of those looking to see in the New Year with a new sofa. 

In fact, January is the perfect time to buy high-ticket pieces of furniture like sofas, as these typically have the biggest discounts.  

You may also find that smaller homeware items make their way into the clearance section, too. This gives Argos the chance to make way for the new season's stock.

FAQs

How much should I pay for a good sofa?

Sofas come in all kind of shapes, styles, and prices. And while dedicated sofa brands will typically charge anywhere between £1500-£3000 for a sofa brand, homeware brands that sell a wide range of products (including sofas) sell them for much cheaper. 

This is the case for Argos. While some of the sofas in this Argos sofa deals guide can cost you less than £300, some will cost you over £1,000.

Ultimately, how much you spend on a sofa is down to personal preference. But if you're planning on using this sofa on a daily basis, we'd suggest buying from the more expensive end of the Argos sofa spectrum. 

What is the most long-lasting sofa?

In terms of durability, sofas with a solid base will always last longer. With this in mind, you should look out for a sofa with a base that's made from hardwood or metal. 

However, it's very rare to come across a poorly-made sofa nowadays. Most brands produce high-quality sofas no matter the price point, so you can almost guarantee that they will last a long time.
