30 deals from Takealot’s Ultimate Checkout sale that are actually worth it

fitbit versa

Here at Gearburn, we generally run a weekly deals guide that help you to sniff out the marketing from the savings oppotunity. Today, we’re doing something a little different, looking at deals specifically on Takealot.

The SA retailer is currently hosting its Ultimate Checkout Sale, a three-day sale that it told Memeburn would aim to bring Black Friday to South Africa in the middle of July. But as things stand, we’re not really seeing Black Friday-like discounts. And finding deals that are actually worth is is quite a chore.

(Trust me, after combing through the site last night four three hours, I would know).

But, if you just can’t wait for pay day tomorrow, there are some worth spending your money on.

So, without wasting any more of your time, here are some of the tech deals we found particularly good from the Takealot Ultimate Checkout Sale in a day-by-day format. Oh, and in easy-to-click bullet form.
