Nothing new to report today - the last set of deals from Raru seems like the last set from them this weekend.
Looks like the deals will hold till sunday/monday for most retailers.
Did spot a few things that I thought was intersting.
Bothners can't give this guitar away, I've seen this CortG260 in thier online store through a bunch of sales. I reckon an offer of R1500 in-store would buy this. Shedload of guitar for little $ - even if it's not a black friday offering, it's still a deal : https://www.bothnermusic.co.za/en/cort-g260b-black-electric-guitar
Ernie Ball Slinky bass strings ar R290 - sold out, but that was a good deal! : https://www.bothnermusic.co.za/en/electric-bass-guitar-strings-ernie-ball-regualr-slinky-bass-3-pack
Here's my laugh of the sale : Raru "versus"* Bothners
Raru Squire SS starter pack: R3499
Bothners Squire SS starter pack: R4320
*I say versus, because it clearly isn't - My personal opinion is that Bothners 'dumped' a bunch of stuff via Raru not to affect their ability to manage their pricing instore. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
I'd like to award Raru the online retailer of Black Friday award. Site was up, some deals were good (and varied) and they had pre sales and updated during the day.
The raazie goes to takealot that had literally one deal on musical instruments, which was cheaper pretty much everywhere else.
Overall, It was a improvement over last year - some things were actually cheap! As in slightly below what you'd expect to pay internationally. Although that was the exception - not the rule - I don't think many retailers covered themselves in glory.
