Pick n Pay Happy Hour??!!??
I thought that it was a bit of a gimmick, but there were a lot of signs in the local supermarket, so I updated my app, allowed notifications, and…
…then I forgot all about it.
But this morning: PING!
Happy Hour between 2pm and 3pm this afternoon. Get R250 off when you spend more than R500.
Well, there are two parts to this. Firstly, I needed some stuff from Pick n Pay anyway, and secondly, who turns down the chance of R250 off in this sort of economic climate? Or indeed in any economic climate?
The timing of the Happy Hour wasn’t ideal, but it was certainly doable, and so I thought I’d give it a go.
And… it worked:
R250 off, just for doing the shopping I was going to do anyway, but checking out at 2:06pm instead of a couple of hours earlier.
R250 is comfortably two meals for a family of 4. It’s 7.5kg of washing powder. It’s 10½ loaves of bread. It’s 14 litres of milk. Or slightly less of each of them if you share it about a bit, obviously.
I’m not sure how Pick n Pay gains from this, but for a family like us, who always have something on the shopping list, and usually have room in the freezer, this might actually be a bit of a gamechanger.
Add in the R115 of Smart Shopper points that I used, and that’s 46% off my R800 shop this afternoon.
That’s pretty amazing.
