I don’t know about you but I’m a serious online shopper. If I can buy it with just a few clicks and have it delivered to my door the next day I’m in consumer heaven. Also, even when I am faced with the odd delivery cost (which is thankfully getting rarer in South Africa these days) I don’t mind too much as I’m saving on petrol and parking, not to mention precious time.
If, like me, you often buy things from overseas stores, you’ll know Americans are all about coupons. So much so that, before I pay for my purchase, I’ll always have a google to find a coupon code online and more often than not I do. The last one I used saw me score 20% off on a slew of Forever 21 cocktail dresses so that was a real winner. (For the record, Forever 21 online offers sooo much more than the dregs served up in our local store.)
But ja. Let’s cut to the chase – there’s a new site in town called Picodi that features a host of local coupon codes and they relate to stores we all love. Think Spree, YuppieChef, Makro, Takealot and Loot!
Just a quick squizz this morning reveals up to R1 500 off a Nespresso machine at YuppieChef…
While many of the stores will tell you about their specials on their site, it’s great to be able to hit up Picodi first to get an overview of what’s going on in all your favourite stores before you head off to the ones offering specials that temp you to break out the credit card.
Speaking of which, don’t forget that this Friday is Black Friday. While we don’t celebrate it in SA, it’s America’s biggest ‘shopping holiday’ so pretty much every US online store is going to be holding crazy rock bottom sales. If you were planning on grabbing a little somethin’ somethin’ from off shore now’s the time to do it. As it is, Amazon’s already started their sale!
