Have you started saving for Black Friday deals?

After my whole ordeal with Makro, I'm not all that keen on Black Friday. Makro never paid me my money back.

Just a heads up to those who are thinking about buying from Makro on Black Friday, their support is the absolute worst. I've completely stopped buying from them.
That is actually seriously bad on their behalf...

Already bought all I need on regular promos. Will give this one a miss.

No, I have a credit card and know how to use it, but I’m not going to be part af the crazy people.

I’ll take a 50gig from MTN, or a new iPad Pro (if there is a October event), and maybe some Thule stuff.
I am also waiting to see what MTN does ;)

No I have not been saving for Black Friday... the deals always end up disappointing. If the deals are not disappointing, the website cannot handle the large influx of web traffic.

MSI Radeon RX 580 MK2 hopefully. Last year I got a Galaxy Tab E for R2000.

Nope. That's what my credit card is for. And no, I don't intend to commit financial suicide. My only interest at this point would be to get decent Lego sales. If none, I have lost nothing.

Is there such a thing? I mean price wise. It's just insane.

Agreed. Prices are steep. But I'm looking for sets I can pay out and get a reasonable return on in my Bricklink store. Always looking for clearance sales where there's 50% off. Never know what can be found.

My mtn 50GB deal and snazzy new (well 10 months old now) volvo says different.
+1!!! Got 3 of those MTN 50gb promos! Possibly the best value for money purchase of my life!! Gutted that the contract is ending soon! Waiting eagerly to see what MTN offer.

I bought an SD card from them earlier this year. After they couldn't hand over the package they didn't contact me afterwards and has still failed to refund me for the purchase, which one of their people said they'd do.

I'll never buy from them online ever again. I've had great after-sale experiences with Takealot and Zando in the past.

Yearning for a pair of the Plantronic Backbeats Pro2. A good price on these is around R3500... let's see...

It was the same for me. They kept promising they would pay me but never did. I eventually just gave up. They lost much more from what I could have spent there than just paying back the money they owed me. Screw them.

Put a few skekles aside - not looking for anything too specific, but if pricing comes in right on something that I didn't know I was wanting, its paid for
