Takealot — false advertising
I've been keeping a close eye on some of the ‘specials' that takealot punts and noticed that while the percentage discount changes, but it barely impacts the base price of the product.
Over the last year for instance, the Taurus Hexa Striker automatic vacuum cleaner has been on sale for R999.00 (even when there is no discount) - I know this because I was interested in purchasing one.
Magically, today it was declared on the daily deals as being 50% off and has dropped to R849.00 with the ‘normal price' being R1699.00. Either someone is not mathematically inclined or they're taking clients for idiots by inflating the ‘normal cost' to accommodate the supposed discount.
Is it normal for Takealot to over exaggerate their deals to attract unsuspecting customers?
