Pick n Pay will refund Asap! deliveries if Proteas win Cricket World Cup

If the Proteas win the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC), Pick n Pay will refund qualifying orders made through its Asap! on-demand grocery delivery app from 30 October to 17 November 2023.

The retailer said to qualify for the full refund, an order must be valued at over R500, customers must link their Smart Shopper card to the app, and they must register their order via the Pick n Pay Asap! WhatsApp channel.

The latter will require entering a code that Pick n Pay will send for qualifying orders to the customer’s email address. All codes must be registered before 10:00 on 19 November 2023.

If the Proteas win the tournament, customers must also request their refunds through the WhatsApp channel before 3 December 2023.

Customers will receive their refund in cash, which can be redeemed directly from the till point at any Pick n Pay store.

There is no limit to the number of orders or their value.

Pick n Pay’s offer comes after Takealot and Samsung committed to refunding 815 customers who had bought TVs from its store during the weeks leading up to the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

The online retailer offered a second edition of its #BackTheBucks campaign, which promised full refunds for purchases of specific Samsung TV models should South Africa win the RWC again.

The Springboks emerged victorious against the All Blacks in the 2023 RWC final on Saturday, 28 October 2023.

Pick n Pay omnichannel retail executive Vincent Viviers said the retailer was fully behind the Proteas’ attempt to clinch a World Cup title for South Africa.

“Their performances on the field have been exemplary over the past weeks,” said Viviers.

“When the Proteas win the tournament, our customers will win with them. It is a win-win for South Africans.”

The Proteas are currently ranked second out of 10 teams in the group stage, having won all their games except for one surprise defeat against the Netherlands.

Their batting performance has been one of their biggest strengths, with a CWC record of 428 runs in their opening game against Sri Lanka and three batters currently featuring in the top 10 scorers of the tournament.

Among the latter, Quinton de Kock has scored the most runs of any batsman — 431 — across six matches.

The team has only three matches left to play against New Zealand, India, and Afghanistan in the group stage.

Should they finish in the top four, they will progress to the semi-finals — to be played on 16 and 17 November 2023.

If they beat their opponents in this knockout stage, they will advance to the final on 19 November 2023.
