Takealot are a bunch of scumbags, with FAKE Black Friday Specials.

I bought the exact USB cable for R123 about 2 weeks ago:

746701

Now its advertised at "Less 60%" at R99:

746703

60% off R123 is R49. Thats HALF of what they are charging now.

You should read the history of black friday. Its about retailers clearing old stock as we go into the new year and not making a loss on new items that are still in demand at retail prices.
Thought that was why they had clearance day in the US to get rid of the old stock for space for the new stock. Why have two days doing the same thing with different names?

Raspberry Pi 3+ kit? That is the normal price you'd pay. I'd have thought you'd at least get the Pi 4 for less on a black friday. What is this? WMC?!

When Inquired about their FAKE discounts this is what they replied:

It's always been that way. Their % discount is always based on the RRP, and not their own selling price. Almost every online retailer does it. Why don't people just focus on what you are paying at the end?

Find X products and run a Google search. Find it cheaper elsewhere, well move on and buy it there. Vote with your wallet.

At 2999 the dishwasher is good, but its clearly sold out now.

Dion Wired is the same as takealot with their black friday specials. Wen't in store and all the items they said will have on special on Friday has a much lower price than the price listed. They over exaggerate the saving
