We're your new best friend! We get hold of a product, slash its price and then offer it to you for OneDayOnly. You've got 24 hours to take advantage of our generosity and then the deal is gone forever. Sad, but true.
Not only are we generous but we're also slightly psychic and know that you're about to ask what products we sell. We offer products from a range of electronics, gadgets, cosmetics and sport and lifestyle items at the lowest price you will find in South Africa.

What are Group Buying or Social Buying websites?

Every day, dozens of websites in South-Africa offer special discounted deals for products, services and experiences. These include deals for restaurants, spas, clothing, sports and much more. The discounts on these offers range between 50-90%. By selling large quantities, the merchant is able to provide higher discounts - thus the name Group Buying, Social Buying or Collective Buying.
