Bargain shopping on steroids

Online shopping has really been on the up and up, and has made the lives of South African’s so much easier. No more queues, no more looking for the right size or waiting in anticipation to see if there is stock of your chosen product. Its really is amazing.

 

Cyber Monday is a term that is known very well in the US and last year made its way to the South African market. It’s a day that offers customers the opportunity to shop top local and international brands at up to 80% off, for 24 hours only. Cyber Monday follows Black Friday which is the day all the brick and mortar stores in the US have sales of the same nature.

 

Last year saw sites like Style36 and 5rooms join this trend but since then these stores have closed their proverbial doors.

 

Who will join the trend this year? We are just going to have to wait and see. My money is on www.superbalist.co.za, www.spree.co.za and www.takealot.com but hopefully there will be more.

 

Cyber Monday always takes place the Monday after Thanksgiving, meaning it will take place on 1st December but start looking out for the sales from Black Friday the 28th of November.

 

Save the date and Happy Shopping!!!
