Big deals from large South African outlets
On 23 November, South Africa’s largest retailers, including Makro, Game, Takealot, and Dion Wired, are going to offer major discounts on select products and services, most of which will be offering in-store as well as online deals.
Makro has extended its Black Friday deal by four days – two days either side of Black Friday – from Wednesday, 21 November to Sunday, 25 November. Mobile paypoints will be available in-store for smaller purchases to relieve congestion at main paypoints. Makro Riversands will have a drive-thru pick-up point where items purchased online can be picked up instead of waiting for delivery.
For gaming consoles, Makro is the place to go on Black Friday, offering the Xbox One S 1TB with a 3 month Xbox Live subscription for R3499, down from R5399. The PlayStation 4 500GB with 4 games (one of which is Spiderman) is advertised to go for R4499, down from R6499. Click here to see more specials at Makro.
Deals at Game apply to both in-store and online purchases but prices may differ close to the time. While all Black Friday deals at Game are on 23 November, certain items are marked to remain discounted until Sunday, 25 November.
Most TVs are on special for the weekend. For example, a Hisense 50” 4K TV is advertised to go for R5999 (instead of R6999) on Black Friday only while a Samsung 43” 4K TV will be R5999 for the whole weekend (instead of R6999). Click here to see more deals from Game.
Takealot, South Africa’s largest online retailer, will be having its Black Friday sale – called The Blue Dot Sale – starting at 00:01 on 23 November.
According to the online retailer, 10 000 deals will be available, with up to 60% off. Bear in mind that popular items and better deals will be sold out faster. And remember there may be a wait.
Separating its deals by online and in-store, Dion Wired will be starting its sales at midnight of 23 November and will end promotions at the end of the weekend.
Computers seem to be the biggest savings at Dion Wired this Black Friday. Online, the Dell Inspiron 3576 8th Generation Core i7 laptop will be going for R9999 (instead of R12999) this weekend. In-store, the Dell Inspiron 3567 7th Generation i5 laptop will be going for R6999 (instead of R8999). Click here to see more specials from Dion Wired.
