To enter you must have completed in full a purchase of any item(s) from us (i.e. paid for in full) during the Competition Period (“Takealot Purchase”), and each such successful qualifying entry (collectively a “Qualifying Entry(ies)”) automatically qualifies the particular participant to stand a chance to win the Golden Ticket. Note that should you at any stage act in contravention of section 5 below, your entry will be withdrawn from the competition.

Please note that each additional entry to your first entry must be different.

 

  • Entry fees: There are no entry fees to participate in this competition, and no additional charges involved in acting as set out in section 4 above.

 

  • Prize: We will randomly select one winner from the successful Qualifying Entries received (i.e. to reiterate, one winner in total) at the Random DC; namely by inserting the Golden Ticket into a randomly selected participant’s Takealot Purchase at the Random DC and then delivering that package to him/her (collectively the “Random Selection”), after the end of the Competition Period and in accordance with section 9 below.

 

  • Winner: The winner will be chosen from the successful Qualifying Entries received by way of Random Selection, as soon as possible after Sunday, 29 May 2022.

Once we have received this information and validated the particular winner, we will deliver the corresponding voucher to him/her as soon possible, subject to section 10 below. We will select a winner who has taken the steps set out in section 4 above and who is in compliance with these rules by way of Random Selection, and subsequently in compliance with the steps outlined within the Golden Ticket, at our sole discretion. Regarding the application of these rules and the selection of a winner and his/her prize in terms hereof, our decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into with a competition participant other than the particular winner.

In the event of disqualification of a particular winner, we will be entitled in our sole discretion to select another winner from amongst the competition participants, or to not award that particular prize at all.
