    Takealot Vouchers (Begging) Thread

    Relax. You saved some money. You'd have purchased some piece of junk if you had that voucher, and now you can keep it and hopefully use it for something meaningful or at a better merchant, Amazon and Ebay come to mind.

    Not "free-loaders" but customers. Those people still spent money at TakeALot, money they would not have spent otherwise. The purpose of those vouchers is to get people to spend money at TakeALot, they're not really gifts for you, otherwise they'd give you actual cash or store credit not linked...

    One can buy shoes online. I usually import my Mephisto shoes. Once you get the size right, and keep the model the same, the rest is easy.

    LOL, actually in the above case it's cheaper to go direct with Amazon and Amazon Global.

    It sounds like a dodgy phishing mail. We have this R500 voucher, just send us R100 to "assign it" to your account. LOL. But yeah there will be fewer discount coupons.

    Takealot Vouchers (Begging) Thread

    I can understand that for goods either not available in B&M which is the main reason why I shop online - usually foreign imported goods OR significantly cheaper stuff. When it comes to home delivery-- don't you people work? :) Well one has to do grocery and pharma shopping anyway. I have free...

    Takealot Vouchers (Begging) Thread

    Nobody cares. If it's not cheaper than B&M people won't bother. If I have to drive to Take2 to collect I may as well drive to Century City or Bayside to buy. If I must wait 24h for courier and I need it today the price difference needs to be large. But give me a significant reduction in price or...

    Sure but you get your item immediately at IC, even on Sunday evening. :) Where is Takelot then? :)

    True TAL is the only large retailer like this. Raru is a competitor but much smaller. Less competition is almost always a bad thing for consumers.

    Is this different than paying with Ebucks on TakeALot?

    It's not like anyone is entitled to stellar service either.

    Takealot Vouchers (Begging) Thread

    Days of free vouchers are pretty much over guys. The big guys got together and made a deal. The competition in SA is pitiful, but it's to be expected, we're a small country with red tape, which is poor and where the prevailing attitude is that people who buy online are loaded with money and will...

    Superbalist is a waste of time. They don't sell attractive stuff - unknown labels. Where's Ted Lapidus or Ben Sherman? And the gadgets they sell are dildos and "cock" rings. I'm sorry. They are definitely super-ball-ist.

    O/T: Notice how weird Takealot prices are. Bought some Canon ink the other day, the original toner at Takealot was about R200+ cheaper than at Makro. Coincidentally the two stores are close to each other. Anyway last night I was looking for a cheapo ironing board as a spare. Makro and Takealot...

    Note how FedEx, DHL and other couriers don't accept COD anymore for incoming shipments (although you can pay cash for outgoing ones) in order to protect their drivers? Takealot has a COD payment option. That probably puts their drivers at higher risk of hijack.
