South African retailer Ackermans recently launched the Ackermans Connect Online – a tech store with a wide variety of products at affordable rates. And the best part? You can peruse their wares from the comfort of your home.
You will be able to purchase the same cellular products available at Ackermans clothing stores, as well as other high-end devices. Here’s what you need to know.
Ackermans Connect Online – Overview
User-friendly and easy to navigate
The Ackermans Connect Online is user-friendly with a secure and convenient UX (user experience) design to make navigation a breeze.
The store showcases all the latest deals and promotions at a glance and features a selection of cellphones, tablets, laptops, accessories, routers and decoders on the front page. Don’t forget the Promotions sections, which is packed to the brim with the latest mobile deals at the best prices.
“It is our hope that the online store can be seen as yet another convenient means for customers to purchase Ackermans’ range of cellular and tech products at great prices”.Ackermans’ Cellular Manager, Michael Grace
Convenient, safe, and secure
Ackermans’ Cellular Manager, Michael Grace explains that the retailer needed to offer customers easier access to cellular and tech products after lockdown was implemented in March 2020.
Grace said that even though “customers were subsequently unable to access [Ackermans’] stores, the demand for connectivity increased as consumers were driven online”.
“We needed to offer customers easier access to our cellular and tech products, through a convenient, safe, secure and easy-to-use shopping portal,” he added.
The curated selection of premium products will also be exclusive to Ackermans’ cellular online store, and Grace says customers will have access to exclusive competitions and promotions as well.
“We will consistently strive to present our customers with a fulfilling online experience, which includes more choice and an online offering that continues to evolve in line with changing customer needs and preferences”.
The range of high-end devices and gadgets listed on the website were previously only available from Ackermans’ Connect stores located in Gauteng. If you’re looking to buy a new gadget, you can’t go wrong with Ackermans. Why?
Well, cellular has been a key component of Ackermans’ retail offering since 1998 through its physical stores, and the retailer sells more than 2.5 million handsets every year. With that in mind, it’s clear to see why Ackermans’ slogan is “Bringing Value to Life”.
Bring value to your life with these notable deals:
Some of the specials from the online store include the Samsung Galaxy S12 for only R3 299, while the Huawei Y5 Lite is available for a low R1 599. If you’re looking for something more higher-end, I suggest taking a look at the Huawei P40 Lite on an MTN package for only R5 999.
Ackermans also has its own in-house brand – Premio – available on the site. It’s a cellular brand packed with premium features at affordable rates. You can, for example, get the Premio X83 or the Premio X82 on MTN (both carry a price tag of R1 399) while the Premio S82 sells for only R1 099.
The Premio S73 is available for an unbelievable R840. The device is powered by Android 9, with a six-inch screen, 2GB RAM, a rear camera with an 8MP lens, a front-facing 2MP camera lens, and a 3 000mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy A21s
And let’s not forget one of my favourite devices: the Samsung Galaxy A21s, a mid-range smartphone powered by an Android 10 operating system. It has a notch-less design on the front, along with a quad-camera layout on the rear.
The front-facing camera lens is discreetly situated in the upper left corner. On the rear, you’ll find a 48 MP main camera that supports pixel binning, along with an 8 MP ultra-wide lens, a 2 MP macro lens and a 2MP depth camera lens.
It’s not only an affordable device, but it’s also beautiful too. When light hits the back, it becomes refracted and creates a stunning rainbow effect.
