It is Takealot’s 8th birthday. Yes, the local ecommerce platform feels like it’s been around forever, and for this year’s festivities Takealot has decided to have a massive sale discounting a range of products between now and the end of the week (24th May).

Discounts vary depending on the product, but up to 55 percent off is available on the site.

Takealot has also four specific sections for its 8th birthday, with daily deals, top picks, bundled tech and big beauty brands.

The daily deals are fairly self explanatory, featuring products from most of the departments on the Takealot site and changing each day, both in terms of the items on offer and the discount percentages.

As for the top picks it appears to be a list of the more expensive items mixed with those products that don’t always receive discounts.

The bundled tech hub looks to be worthwhile for gamers and those interested in picking up some computer hardware.

Rounding things off is big beauty brands, with Takealot (and Superbalist) having recently added a number of well-known cosmetic brands to its ranks. From what we can tell this section is focused on fragrances for now.

If nothing catches your fancy right now, we suggest creating a Takealot profile and signing up for alerts, if you haven’t already, as it’s the best way to get up-to-date notifications for the sale.
