Standard Bank announces more Black Friday deals than ever before

Black Friday 2023 will soon be upon us with Standard Bank Black Friday deals in town. In the lead-up to Black Friday on November 24, we’re sharing the best early discounts for their clients to take advantage of. Specifically, deals on electronics, food and wine, beauty products and more.

Typically, the Black Friday sale, which has emerged as a major shopping event on the local calendar, begins on the Friday and wraps up the following Monday. However, you’ll be happy to know that the bank has various early offers and exclusive deals up for grabs, including SKOON and UCOOK, exclusively available to Standard Bank clients.

Whether you’re looking to stock up on essentials or get your Christmas shopping sorted early, and you want to avoid the frenzy of Black Friday weekend both online and in-store, but still save a lot of money in the process, shopping ahead of the main event is a smart move.

The bank has partnered with some of South Africa’s most loved brands and retailers to offer deep discounts to clients. “It’s no secret that South Africans have endured financial pressure this year due to tough economic conditions like persistent inflation and high interest rates,” says Tumelo Ramugondo, Head of Credit Card at Standard Bank.

“This means that consumers are hunting for deeper value and bigger bargains. We understand that clients are cautious about parting with their hard-earned money. This we believe is the right and responsible approach to take in the current environment.”

This year, South Africans will be spending their money wisely and taking advantage of deals that can accrue real savings. Many consumers will also opt to do so as easily and conveniently as possible, which might mean avoiding the shopping mall and nabbing great deals online.

With online convenience and value in mind, Standard Bank is upsizing their Black Friday offerings, giving clients more than they bargained for.
