I actually saved some money from an item on my wishlist before. The old price was more than the new.
It's just normal price fluctuation, supply/demand, R/$
You can always try and find it cheaper at a different store
Yeah, I don't know why everyone is continuously crying. So many options. I haven't had much problems with Takealot. Order from them almost every week. Kalahari was more expensive and their service was worse.
