    Telkom Showmax promotion extension?

    Back in April Telkom sent out 3 month Showmax subscription codes. My subscription should end on 29 July, but I see that this has been extended until September. I don't see any billing for this, so I'm wondering if the promotion has been extended. Anyone else noticed this?

    Pick n Pay brand match discontinued?

    I have realised that in January my till slip no longer has a brand match calculation. At one point I got a random R10 off coupon, but it wasn't for paying more on my shopping than elsewhere. It looks like they no longer run this programme. The best notice I could find was this news piece from...

    Don't buy Bid or Buy gift vouchers

    Unlike other online stores their vouchers aren't emailed to you immediately. Instead, they need to be approved by someone in their accounts department, which can only be done during office hours. Compare this with Takealot, which emails you in seconds afters buying a voucher. My story: I won...

    Limpopo set for Vodacom Cup team in 2013

    Sport 24 This seems like a good move by SARU. If rugby is going to grow, the game should be spread as far as possible. While not too many people are likely to attend matches, it's not like the Vodacom Cup is a big draw for any of the existing teams. The only issue I can see with this is if...

    Football-rugby double headers?

    Times Live I'd be all for the double headers, but there will be problems about how to split the stadium rent and gate takings. it could wok, and should be really fun. Saying that they hope to model it on the Super Bowl would mean that they are looking to do it only a few times (or once) per...

    Will the World Cup sway you support the PSL?

    With the World Cup just about done, I'd like to see if it will have an effect on the number of people going to PSL games. The USA built a great league on the success of USA 94, and I'd love to see SA do something similar. So, for the last month we have all been very interested in football...
