DEAL FAIL: Groupon Sells Overpriced Vacuum Sealer

Groupon is selling the Magic Line Vacuum Sealer for R380 which includes a claimed 46% discount.

If you google VBS-540 you will find multiple retailers selling this same product for under R300 as the normal price.

90 People have already bought this from Groupon. I urge everyone to please check prices before buying anything from Groupon. History has shown us that they inflate their claimed retail and selling price to lure people into thinking that they are getting a bargain.

Takealot has the same item for R264. Even though they don't have stock it is an indication of the product price.

Thanks for the tip Andre.


  1. I totally agree with you!
    Groupon inflate their price in most of their deals. Do your research ppl!!!

  2. Well spotted Andre!

  3. Seems the trend continues with this western digital passport drive deal

    On groupon for R649 ( a reported saving of 41% or R450)

    Yet TakeALot sells that exact model WDBKXH5000ABK (and many others I'm sure)
    for less at R629 (which has a WAS price of R799)

    Cmon Groupon, your integrity is at stake here and consumers are fast catching on that many of your
    deals are not in fact deals at all. Consumer watch anyone ? :/

  4. Totally agree. Thanks for pointing it out.Btw, my vacuum sealer is getting old and I want to buy a new one. Does anyone know where to buy vacuum sealer with good quality?
