And much like flight sales.. our local tech can't handle the load. Takealot is already putting up store full signs, PnP log in issues, Toys r us timeouts & slow or 502 errors etc

The Takealot one is a 'graceful failure' but others where u get 404 errors etc are just horrid. I wonder what the issue is? is it that our engineers suck? budgets wrong? yes men vs reality check outnumbering? <-- Something people need to re-evaluate as i see it as a failure.

They dont need to compete, people dont research and just go in blindly. TIA

Yeah Agreed fully ! We should come up with our very own insane 1 day shopping spree - the South African way - May I suggest a day in December - Say the 5th of December each year..... We call it - Shopaholic Madness - 1 Day only with absolute genuine 50% off retail prices on everything and I mean everything !! Every single store, no matter how large or how small, They need to sell their products and provide their services at half price , just for that specific day each year - They possibly won't be making any profit or very little profit, but the sales will be off the chart and it will be a day of Madness:D Not a day of stupidity and embarrassment trying to emulate the States :crylaugh:

Agree with you absolutely
Black Friday is for the benefit of the SELLERS / RETAILERS
USE the buying frenzy to make you buy stuff you do not really want ( or need )

I am not really that into crazy buying at ANY time of the year ( still hard to resist temptation :) )

At least with a 50% off EVERYTHING I could find the things I really want ( think I need )

As an example -- I have [entry-level] Telkom home unlimited ( monthly on the normal statement )
IF they had a special today ( one day only ) where I could bolt on another two gig onto the one gig mobile for say an extra R50.00 I would have clicked and ticked at 12h01 already !
One wonders WHO works out what is "special" for this special homage to the god of Mammon ?
