While Black Friday is usually a one day event on 29th November, South African businesses are taking a different approach to their sales. Case in point is Makro, which will be running promotions for the shopping “holiday” starting on 27th November and running until 1st December.

As Makro sells just about everything, you can find a massive amount of items which will be included, from flip flops to air fryers and even game consoles, there’s a bit of everything for everyone.

Thankfully Makro has put their specials together into a pair of brochures which you can browse in this Google Drive folder.

We’ve had a quick look through to see what would catch our eye, and arranged it into a neat list below. This is influenced by the amount of discount as well as our personal taste, so you should give it a gander yourself so you don’t miss anything.

  • DStv Explora 3 decoder – R649
  • PS4 Pro + two controllers + God of War + The Last of Us Remastered – R6 999
  • Power AirFryer Oven with Rotisserie – R1 999
  • 12000 BTU Split Unit Air Conditioner – R4 999
  • LEGO Classic Creative Brick Box – R399
  • Ryobi 5.5 kVA Petrol Key-Start Generator – R7 999
  • Two1 Hoverboard – R1 999

On top of all of what we’ve mentioned here, many groceries and other consumables like alcohol are on sale too.

We’ve neglected to include the amount of money reduced from each item as these are usually a bit iffy around big sales like this. As always do your research before parting with any money.

Other brands who have announced their South African Black Friday specials include Builders, Comic Con, Xbox and Nedbank.
