A customer wanted to buy a Berlinger Haus Mable Coating Cookware set on Black Friday because it was advertised as a huge bargain.
The set was offered for a special price of R2,512 while the supplier set the normal price to R6,028.
The customer approached Takelot and asked “what kind of joke this is”, since the same set was offered earlier this year as R2,512 and this was the normal price. “Where did the price of R6,028 come from?” he wanted to know without getting a concrete answer.
The person says his respect for the webpage is gone for good, and he will not order anything there again.
Die Vryburger has repeatedly warned that buyers should do their homework and not accept all kinds of advertising as truth, and thus wait until sufficient funds are saved before buying expensive items with a credit card.
Die Vryburger has learned from several readers that fake information was used to lure people to the stores, and others claim that they could buy certain goods on Saturday significantly cheaper than on Black Friday, which is again proof of the need to to do thorough homework.
