Exactly the same happened to me twice in the last few months.I hear you. I’ve had similar experiences as well. The majority of buyers are pretty thick so they get away with it.
Last month a resistive work out band of mine broke after 2 months.
I returned it asking for a replacement because the price had doubled (and they had stock).
Instead they said there is no stock and refunded me the lesser purchase price.
After I showed them that they do have stock and they are taking a chance, did they send me a replacement.
Point is, unboxed deal or not, takealot will try take advantage. They lean on the CPA which requires a minimum of 6 months warranty.
I actively try to avaod shopping at Takealot these days , even if I have to spend a little bit more elsewhere.
