Brandhunter Launch

Last week I was invited to attend the soft launch of an exciting new members-only flash-sale site, Brandhunter.
Now as I grew up in the 90s where the teen movie genre was immortalised and the majority of my book collection  consisted of The Babysitter's Club all I wanted to do was be a member of a cool club. And here was my chance! And even better I didn't have to worry about annoying kids to be part of a club :)

Along with one of my fab friends, we headed to 15 on Orange (swanky hotel) to learn more about the site and its products. On arrival, we were able to register and join the site. Brandhunter will only be taking 5000 members so if you're keen to join, sign up now. After December, there'll be a waitlist to get on. And there are no opportunities to flirt with a bouncer for admission. Not that I've ever done that...

How awesome are these key flashdrives.
Unlike other flash sites (still a new concept in South Africa but cray cray around the world) Brandhunter sells a range of premium brands including fashion, gadgets, accessories and electronics at discounted prices. Emphasis on premium. At the launch we spotted massive discounts on Lipsy, Hussein Chalayan for Puma, Paul's Boutique and Big Blue Furniture.

The peeps behind Brandhunter are Eugen Petersen  and Caroline Nixon, both of these guys have massive retail, online and marketing experience and can count Edcon, Zando and MIH/ as former employees. Eugen talked us through the beta version of the site so we knew what we could expect.

Like the majority of flash sites, the designer sales will only last a couple of days. Delivery will be a door-to-door courier service at a flat rate of 35 ronds. If you signup now and want to treat yo self, you can find sales from PUMA, Dell, Paul's Boutique bags and After Eden. And you can look forward to more Lipsy, The Lisa King Collection (footwear and bags), Samsung, Polo and Ferrari just to mention a few delectable brand names.

So what are you waiting for? Go on and signup!

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh!
