DEAL FAIL: Groupon 80% More Expensive than Competing Website

Even though this deal has just been sold out on Groupon I thought that I would post the comparison just to inform my readers of the misrepresentation of discounts on the Groupon website.

Below you can see the Pockets Chairs on the Groupon site for a claimed 40% discounted price of R299.

Wicount is selling the exact same Pocket Chairs for R165 making the Groupon price 80% more expensive.

I feel sorry for the 15 people that bought the Groupon deal. My suggestion, ask for a refund.

DEALS: Xbox 360 250GB plus Forza Horizon for R1950 (30% off)

This bundle would typically go on sale for R2500 but at R1950 it is a bargain.

I'm sure this will be sold out in an hour or two.

DEALS: iPad 4 with Wifi and 3G up to 23% off @ Groupon

On the stranger side of things Groupon actually has a product deal that is worthwhile.

The are offering:

Below is an extract of what they offering with my comments in green regarding the discount and over embellished recommended retail price.

"Choose between these options (my comments in green):
  • Pay R4 999 for a 16GB iPad 4 in White or Black, valued at R7 399 (actually RRP R6499 making this a 23% discount)
  • Pay R6 499 for a 32GB iPad 4 in Black, valued at R8 399 (actually RRP R7499 making this a 13% discount)
  • Pay R7 500 for a 64GB iPad 4 in White, valued at R9 499 (actually RRP R8599 making this a 13% discount)"

Apple products such as iPad and macbooks don't usually go on sale in the stores so unless there is something that i missed in the fine print this deal is definitely worthwhile.

You can go to ZASTORE to compare prices.

DEAL FAIL: Want it All's 20% Discount Vouchers Misleading

Want it All sent me the discount voucher as shown in the image below this morning.
The first time I received one of these was quite a few months ago and I got very excited and search their site for something large and awesome and eventually found an R8000 piece of equipment that I wanted only to discover at check out that there was only a reduction of R150. That's when I read the small print.
If you look at the bottom of the screen capture you will see that it states a "Max discount of R150".

I was so furious that I emailed wantitall.co.za and expressed my feelings to put it mildly and requested that they stop bombarding me with these misleading offers. Well it seems that they are at it again.

All I have to say is that I do not respect a company that uses small print to mislead their customers.

This might be worth your while if you found something for R750 on the site that was actually competitively priced.

Challenge to our readers: Find something on the wantitall website for R750 or less that is competitively priced and post it in the comments section.
