Yep me too.

For Takealot's sake, I hope they don't make a loss on any of the products sold. If this is the case, it will explain why they are not releasing that many vouchers.
Of course they are. The voucher was initially intended for Beats headphones. I can see a 30% markup on that. There definitely isn't a 30% markup on a PS4.

I had a 128gb flash drive in my cart last night but couldn't pull the trigger.

Flame away, but wrong is wrong.

Indeed... intended for Beats headphones and then abused... just because you can does not mean you should.
Always the me-me-me minority that stuffs things up for the rest, and then these few manage to rationalise their behaviour and do their little victory dances of their "I win-win-win you lose" chest thumping... then whine about the lack of valid vouchers and promotions in the future.

Yeah some people took massive liberties here which I do not think is right.

They've made a lot of people happy and some good things are being said about them. That's probably got more long-term value than the small loss they might have suffered from the vouchers being used.

Edit: Ah - I didn't see the headphone voucher abuse thing.

I've used Takealot for around 2 years and there service is really impressive.

I only buy from them these days.

Vouchers entice me to buy the things I 'want' but i can do without them haha.

So all in all, the vouchers help convince people to buy a lot more than we would normally do, sounds like a successful marketing campaign to me.

But at prices below their profit margin in some cases I'm guessing.

Until the next round of vouchers I'll add to the praise :): Ordered an item this past Saturday, got called by the delivery ppl on Sunday, and had my item Monday morning at 09:30. It's nice consistently getting that kind of quick service from them. By far my favorite local online retailer.

Well, you said you were waiting for R299 refund. That means that you either stacked vouchers or used the voucher along with a special. Otherwise, you wouldn't have been able to get it that low.

You could have used Ebucks, but I don't recall you saying anything about that, so I guess we can rule that out.

I used the voucher. Kalahari had an additional special that was not labelled as such on the website.
When I applied the voucher it gave me R150 off which was R75 for the voucher & R75 for the Kalahari special.

Listening to my Logitech Z623's now.

Nice sound, although I think I'm happier with them due to the R700 discount :D

I think we should let somebody at Takealot know about this thread, perhaps they might be kind enough to reward us with some vouchers ... :D
