    Takealot CEO says it will be profitable in 2 years

    If you are buying books them Loot is the way to go. Takealot has no idea how to package books property and you are pretty much guaranteed that they'll get dinged in shipping. Have had great packaging from Loot, their delivery is great and prices are often better than Takealot.

    Fnb cards

    You have to put the account holder's name in the name block. The card description is just something for you to know which card you are using if you link multiple cards. Something like "My FNB Cheque card", "Cheque Card" or anything you want should work. You'll get an OTP when doing the...

    Takealot returns damaged item as the replacement item

    I returned the item and they made a new order. I was under the impression that I will have to wait until they received stock, which I was fine with. When the replacement shipped within 5 days I should've smelled a rat as the normal lead time is 7-12 days. The first thing they said is "kindly...

    Takealot returns damaged item as the replacement item

    Thanks. For the life of me couldn't find a number on their contact page. Got sorted through Twitter and have logged a return and requested a refund. They still can't explain how it happened. Doesn't inspire much confidence in getting a replacement.

    Takealot returns damaged item as the replacement item

    I'm planning to. Just waiting for them to confirm that I will get a full refund and how long this process will take. The sad thing is that you can't even call Takealot to complain since they don't provide any contact details.

    Takealot returns damaged item as the replacement item

    I couldn't find a better spot for this, but have to share. I recently ordered an expensive omnibus from Takealot. The book arrived with damage to the corners of the hardcover due to the totally inadequate packaging Takealot used. I logged a return and today received the replacement. I was...

    What book are you reading at the moment ?

    For those of you still in the physical book market I've posted a comparison of my experience with the book packaging quality of three of the online retailers I use the most for my book orders. This is taken from my experience of (far too many orders) over the past 2 years or so. I would love to...

    2019 Takealot Thread (Only 4 Beggers)

    So there is no minimum spend to earn the R200 promo voucher? You can just buy a R50 Takealot voucher and pay with a VISA card and you are golden if I understand correctly.

    Personal Laptop for work

    Most laptops should also have a battery conservation mode. This charges the battery to 50-60% when it's constantly running on AC power to enhance the lifespan of the battery.

    Telkom to migrate ADSL customers to wireless and fibre

    This is horrible. Finally cancelled my landline after being forced to go to the wireless phone. Cell towers go down in a blackout and the phone doesn't work. This make the Telkom phone useless as it was kept as a backup for just when the cell towers go down. In our area Telkom roam on another...

    What book are you reading at the moment ?

    If you guys are looking for a fantastic fantasy series that brings something new to the table I can highly recommend Adrian Tchaikovsky's SHADOWS OF THE APT series. Personally I think it's a better read than Wheel of Time with actual dynamic sword fighting (not just switching from this stance...

    What book are you reading at the moment ?

    Yes, it's brilliant. When I read it I wondered how much some characters are self-referential. Love the touch of magic thrown into an otherwise normal setting.

    Calls from 084 145

    I'm also receiving multiple calls from 0084145. Today alone they phone 4 times with the last call being at 18:48. When I answered I heard a female voice and then they hung up. I did not consent to be contacted and this is really getting on my nerves now.
