I've joined takealot in the start of the year, i've bought alot from them, but never recieved a voucher
Even ebucks havent sent me any vouchers
I keep saying it, one or two getting vouchers from them doesn't change that they generally send out vouchers to people that don't buy from them. Takealot doesn't have a loyalty program.This is really crap.
I finally got the "Great ways to spend your eBucks" email but it didn't include any voucher
Then a family member that doesn't use Takealot gets "Takealot World Cup Shop Launched | Your R50 Coupon Inside!" coupon.
Why should we support Takealot if they don't support their loyal customers? Especially since lately their pricing sucks.
It worked thanks bud. My voucher dry spell is finally over.Ok, right, I don't know when mubeend is going to use it and feedback if it works or not ...
I have ONE more. R50 off R150, use by 16 August.
First person to post which digit the "?" is:
I wonder if they perhaps also use them to manage cash flow, cash resources running low, send out a few thousand vouchers and watch orders spike for a few days, get back into the red.
You forgot about the other type of customer, the one who only buys when it's below cost. Takealot has gathered too many of those with their and Kalahari's voucher war. It's better to have 1 once off customer than any of those. I don't know what you mean by net price. I like Loot more because they are well priced and have a lot of delivery flexibility. Takealot is still not using postal delivery claiming it's because of last year's strike.Maybe you picked that up from "Running an Online Business 101" but those of us with doctorates in the subject know that it's better to have 1 loyal customer than 10 once off customers.
Vouchers are what got me using Takealot (Kalahari) but they are also what made me keep using Takealot.
Actually to be more accurate, when I say vouchers, I mean net price.
Regarding Daily Deals: I'm not a fan of having to stop my work (yes Takealot, most people are working at 9am!) and all other commitments to do online shopping at 9 in the morning. If you don't prioritise Takealot above all other things, then it's most likely that anything worth buying is going to be sold out by the time you check the daily deals in the afternoon/evening.
