Takealot’s Big 5 Birthday Bonanza Sale – Price Check

Takealot has launched its Big 5 Birthday Bonanza sale, which promises “5 crazy birthday deals, every day for 5 days”.

The birthday deals fall under Takealot’s Daily Deals section when navigated to from the home page, with five deals forming part of Takealot’s top picks section.

Takealot has faced criticism in recent times for punting items as being “on sale” when other retailers have the same product for cheaper.

The Advertising Standards Authority of South Africa ruled in April that a Takealot Daily Deals discount on an SSD was in breach of the South African advertising code.

This was due to the “original price” of the sale item being higher than what it usually sells for.
