Black Friday is almost upon us and there’s been a lot of griping about that fact that many SA retailers are wanting to get in on the action but aren’t really offering killer good specials. Not so with Takealot.com. They’re going to be serving up a wallop of products with slashed prices and this extends to fashion and beauty.
This means you can look forward to over 15 000 dramatically discounted deals, with retailers cutting prices by up to 60% and, if you find something in their Blue Dot Sale selection you could save by up to 80%! You also don’t need a credit card to shop as you can pay cash on delivery. Speaking of which, your first orders’ delivery is free and, after that, delivery is also always free when you spend R450 or more. You can also make free returns within 30 days.
So, how can you make sure you grab the best of Takealot’s deals before they sell out? I’ve got a few top tips, the first being to make a wish list online. This way, you’ll be ready to hit ‘buy’ the moment your item becomes discounted.
I made a wish list and it’s quite the mix, including a GlamPalm Magic Wand curler (R1 899)…
… as many pots of my beloved Catrice Camouflage Cream concealer in Ivory Beige (R56) as I can get my mitts on…
…and Gucci Rush 2 EDT (R649 for 30ml).
Another way to keep ahead of the sale is to set an alarm. Takealot’s Blue Dot sale starts at 00.01am on Friday the 24th of November and continues over the weekend up until next week, ending on Takealot Tuesday. Even better? If you download Takealot’s app, you can shop the sale early as they’re currently running app-only specials as I type.
You can also follow Takealot.com on all their platforms – Facebook, Instagram and twitter as they’ll be posting about new deals the moment prices drop.
Now let’s get to the super exciting bit! I’ve been given a R1000 Takealot.com gift voucher to give away. Entering is easy – simply tell me which item you’re most wanting to snap up for a song during Takealot’s Blue Dot Sale.
You can also enter via my Instagram (I’m @lipglossgirlxoxo) so be sure to stop on by!
This competition is open to South African residents only and a winner will be drawn at 8am on 24 November 2017.
This competition is now closed. Congratulations to winner Lynn Isaacs!
