Win a R1000 gift voucher to blow over the 5-day mega Blue Dot Sale with Takealot.com

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)…

#want

… as many pots of my beloved Catrice Camouflage Cream concealer in Ivory Beige (R56) as I can get my mitts on…

My shade is always sold out in stores.

…and Gucci Rush 2 EDT (R649 for 30ml).

I’d loved this scent for years!

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. 

Love, love

Leigh

This competition is now closed. Congratulations to winner Lynn Isaacs!

    I NEED to snap up the Seagate 1TB hard drive , I have been keeping my eyes on one for the longest time and planning on using my ebucks and cash to purchase it . Takealot is the cheapest at the moment 🙂 All eyes on the BlueDot sale !

  3. so much stuff! But as much as I’d love to buy myself makeup and perfume as I haven’t in ages, I’d actually like to get Xmas gifts for my kiddies. So many awesome toys on takealot as well baby things for my LO who is now 4 months old. 💜 #Excited#BlackFriday#BlueIsTheNewBlack#BlueDotSale#

  4. Trying to get a couple of textbooks so I don’t have to worry about them in January (cause really who has that kind of cash in Jan) and maybe a Christmas prize or two. 😆😆

  5. My ears have been talked off by the Twins for the past few months about Ps4 Games, Gran Turismo Sport and Fifa 18. Mom, you can get it on TakeAlot Black Friday. Im like what do you know about Black Friday? Takealot advertised it on tv and its going to be so cheap, then we can get 2 games for the price of one🙈
    And you have the Takealot app on your phone, so you can do it quickly.
    Im like Quick quick. Yes, are you going to pay. Lol kids😂

Last week I discovered that my granny has lost her eye side Gosh I couldn’t help holding tears and now here is the heart breaking part she used to have a touch screen phone but can’t no longer use it all she asked me to do for her was to buy her a phone button where she would feel and know where to press when it’s ringing 😢 now if I won this voucher would definitely buy her a Mint M1 Dual SIM Black cellphone it’s now on special at Takealot and also buy her Chocolate Treat Box just to show her how much I appreciate her

  41. Hi, I love to spoil my furry baby for Christmas. His bed is tattered and old. I’d definitely buy the Rogz 129cm x 86cm Indigo Bones bed for him. He would absolutely love this.

  42. I would love to win some money to help my mom who just lost her job as a domestic worker start a small shop. Either than that, DKNY perfume would make me so happy😊

  48. I REALLY want this prize 😀 Theres so many amazing products at Takealot that its really hard to choose, i would love to own my very own Nutribullet to add to my workout regime and i would absolutely ADORE a nail lamp so i can finally start doing my nails again (working in scaffolding has its downfalls), i would love to get my hands on some amazing primer for my face! I absolutely LOVE takealots sales, got an AMAZING make up stand during their spring sale. If i have to choose one though i would say the NutriBullet because i REALLY need to adjust my nutrition and the foods i eat so smoothies would really help this and it may even get my daughter to start trying more fruits and veg (ALWAYS A FIGHT!!). Fingers, toes and all else crossed to be the lucky one

  49. 🙌 I love the Maxwell & Williams squared designed white plates set. I would so die to get my hands on them.
    Lovely giveaway

  50. The Argon Oil Steam Hair Straightener has been on my wishlist , literally for MONTHS now. The reviews & videos I’ve seen for this Straightener has me crying for this. Especially for my not so straight hair 😂😂
    I’d really love & appreciate this voucher MORE than you can imagine
    Also , I’d honestly wrap it & make use of it after Christmas- so therefore have it as a Christmas gift to myself lol … pleeeeeeeaaaase!! I’m really hoping I win this one 😭😭😭😭😭 TakeAlot has such a wide variety , but you know it’s real when I’ve narrowed it down to one item 😂😂

    Really crossing my fingers for this one! 💙💙💙💙 #BlueIsTheNewBlack #TakeAlot

  51. Wowzer, what a prize!
    I myself would love to stock up on the Skin Republic and Garnier sheet masks – they’re my favourites, and when they’re on sale like this, it’s great to stock up and put them away in my drawer 😉
    And the hubs has had his eye on a Biltong maker – something I’m not opposed to, as the idea of unlimited supplies of drywors appeals to me 😉

  52. Hoping to pick up a Nespresso machine at a nice price. Been wanting one since Jack Black appeared in the TV ads 🙂 I mean what else? lol

  53. For me I would have to say I would spend it on a FitBit, I have wanted one for a long time well since around June when I started gym again haha. Its something to motivate me a littel more. On a student budget I just cant spend that much.
