With five days of amazing discounts starting on Black Friday, throughout the weekend as well as on Cyber Monday and Takealot Tuesday, there’s truly something for everyone. But how do you get the most out of our biggest sale of the year? Easy! Follow our simple guide of do’s, don’ts and how-to’s and you’re guaranteed to land great deals. Step 1 - Start Shopping Before Anyone Else (Requires an Download the App button). Psst! Want to know a secret?

 Step 2 – Set your Alarm. The Blue Dot Sale goes live at 00:01AM on Friday, 23 November. All stock is limited, so the sooner you get shopping, the better. We suggest waking up at least half an hour before to get your device ready. Remember, if you snooze, you lose!
 Step 3 – Be Prepared. Just like a trusty Scout, be prepared. Load takealot.com vouchers ahead of time, and charge your smartphone, laptop or tablet. Be sure to double-check all your details including your preferred address. Remember to make sure that you’ve got enough data or a reliable internet connection, and whatever you do… don’t forget to get the kettle going. You’re going to need a strong cup of coffee (or your favourite energy drink) to be on top deal-hunting form.

Step 5 – Know the Small Print. Takealot.com generally offers customers hassle-free returns, but this can depend on the product. Be sure to check whether your Black Friday purchase beforehand to make sure it’s returnable. But let’s face it… you’ll fall in love at first sight.
 Step 6 – Be Quick… On your marks, set… go! Stock and prices are only secured once payment is received. So, warm up those thumbs and check out as quickly as possible! Simply adding a product to your cart doesn’t secure it, or its price.
