R70 in Montague gardens, not worth your drive
You have obviously little experience of what some people do when they see a potential "saving" - cue any filling station at every petrol price hike, or so-called "bargains". They will literally drive to the next province for a "saving" of R10 on an item ...

Stuck in Limpopo, Day 2. I found that prices range from R100 a pack to R45 (depending on brand and seller) took me all of 10 minutes to find 1st seller in a town I don't know.

Best is I found a spot that selling Sharp for R45 a packet. Just did not bring enough cash to buy stock to take home and I am pretty sure putting it on the corporate card is a big no no :(

Don't you have a bank card of your own with you? Do you keep your money under your mattress?

2 weeks ago a box of Chicago was R180, last week R170. Today R140. Anybody have a hook up in Southern suburbs for a better price a DM would be great.

No, I flew in for something simple 20 minute job. Left my wallet at work as I did not expect to stay for 2 days.

Chelsea R60, not too bad actually. :thumbsup:
I'm guessing from Zimbo originally.

Rg Blue, Caesar, Caesar pop - R80 each.
