Shop Black Friday specials whilst staying safe


After lockdown, you might be missing the experience of heading to the mall. With Black Friday South Africa coming up (this year, it’s on November 27th) you’re probably getting excited about all the great Black Friday deals heading your way – we definitely are! However, this year there are more reasons than ever to shop online rather than in store.

Why queue? 

To get the Black Friday specials in-store, you need to get up ridiculously early and stand in line outside your chosen mall or store. Some shoppers even choose to camp out for a night or two beforehand, to make sure they’re first in the queue.

With coronavirus still a thing, stores will have to make sure everyone is following social distancing rules. That means that lines will be even longer and slower than last year. Plus, you’ll be doing all this while wearing a mask – it really doesn’t sound like any fun at all.

By shopping online, you can snag great deals while you’re sitting on the couch, relaxing in your garden or even enjoying a lie-in – we know where we’d rather be! Plus, you won’t have to worry about coronavirus. Oh yes, and no driving, parking or trolley dramas!

Be a savvy shopper

Shopping in store on Black Friday can be quite a hectic experience, and you risk coming away empty-handed if someone else grabs the last discounted laptop or smartphone

By doing your bargain hunting online, you can take your time to find the products and Black Friday deals you most want – and focus all your attention on them. You won’t get distracted, and you won’t have to elbow anyone else out of the way!
