    Theres a lot more competition for the lower value pallets so maybe you have seen people bidding almost upto the retail value for some stock, but if you had £50k in the bank (and the storage) you could probably get some things for as low as 50% retail price as there arent many people out there to compete with you.

    Theres definately places to get better deals than the argos clearance site for sure if your budget is tight but you need to do some homework and know your product before buying it.

    Woolworths Jambo pallets are maybe a better deal if you have limited funds, these can be picked up for £75 per pallet and are usually current season toy stock (returns).

    They are raw returns, so they could either be 100% working or utter rubbish...Thats the chance you take im afraid...but...with the xmas season just gone i would expects some quality stuff to be on there.

    Its really hard to say though as it could all be broken goods.

    Unless you can inspect the pallets before you buy then its a lottery.

    The argos clearance website is not bad if -

    a/ you have a load of spare cash to buy a whole pallet fo iPods, LCD tv's or exercise kit, and

    b/ only buy grade A overstocks.These are as new unsold items.

    Grade B&C tend to be customer returns and faulty items.

    I've heard too many bad stories about people buying pallets off ebay. When the pallets are sold bty Argos and Woolworths, they are all similar stock. A lot of the resellers will split a number of B grade pallets, cherry-picking the best items, and resell the tat as a mixed-goods pallet on eBay.

    There are a lot of reputable companies out there selling genuine pallets of stock, such as http://www.xcatreturns.com/stock.htm, and www.marthill.co.uk
