In the picture, it seems the store has promised a R15 discount on Bran Flakes which are now being sold for R35. However, a closer inspection reveals the discount is only about R5 as the cereal was originally sold at R39.99. Hectic!
Naturally, social media users were not here for being scammed in broad daylight. One person hilariously remarked that customers should go looking for the manager.
Check out some of the other silly comments below:
"Shoprite should stop playing with people's minds, I visited the store yesterday for this red weekend they have been talking about, only a few items are on special but they put all prices on red stickers, if you don't check well you will go blind."
"Yho, I saw the same scam, went to buy noodles, the tag said R20 for 3 on single packs, when I saw the packet which has 5 single packs is R20."
"One teller told me, 'Customers swapped the price tag.' How on earth?"
"Use a calculator before you assume."
"Clicks always does that, scamming advertising."
Man treats bae to shopping trip, comically makes her solve equation for ATM pin
In more funny news, Briefly News previously reported that a local man has social media users laughing after placing some interesting conditions on his girlfriends latest shopping spree. It seems the gentleman will let his lady spend a ridiculous amount of cash on his bank card if she can solve his ATM pin.
Heading online, Twitter user @danielmarven shared a snap of the written message the hilarious lover-boy left his lady.
"This Guy knows how to treat his woman for sure," he sarcastically captioned the post.
South Africans were also super shocked by the post. Many ladies hilariously remarked that they'd get their brainy friends to solve the equation while some people argued that no solution to the equation would offer a 4-digit ATM pin.
Check out some of the reactions to the post below:
"She'll just call the mathematician she knows from next door."
"And I don't know of any bank account pin that is made up of only two digits."
"She must go and tap not more than R100 per transaction, eish she will need more than a year to make just 1 withdrawal."
"Ya'll please meet the man of the year..."
"Why is the licence there?"
"I don't know maths but I would get my friends to help me out with this one."
"I'm so confused nami."
