On Sunday 9th August, people around the world celebrate Women’s Day. It’s an opportunity to honour the achievements made by women, while still bringing to attention the need for greater equality.

In South Africa, the public holiday commemorates a march in 1956, where 20 000 women – of all races and ages – made their way to the Union Buildings in Pretoria. They were protesting against the pass laws that impeded the free movement of black South Africans.

Women’s Day is a reminder of their bravery and it’s a day to recognise all women’s struggles and successes. How will you be treating the women in your life on the 9th August?


Luckily for GetMore members, you have access to a huge range of benefits and services that you can use to spoil the special women in your life. With GetMore’s Bag of Tricks you’ll be able to find something fun to do this long weekend.

If you’re looking for a fun activity, try dancing, wine tasting or hiking, and with GetMore PLAY, you’ll get up to R400 off the price of selected activities. Perhaps you’re a comedy fan, or you love theatre, now you can save up to 75% on ticket office deals, by letting GetMore negotiate the best price for you.

How about a Discount Dining experience? Let the special woman in your life choose from more than 400 restaurants around the country, and as a GetMore member, you’ll save up to R100 on two main meals. Fancy going to the movies? Watch the latest 2D or 3D blockbuster at a bargain, when you get 60% off the price of your movie tickets. For a proper treat, you can also look at a spa experience where you get up to R400 off your second treatment.

It’s also not too late to organise a sneaky weekend away, or a day trip to a nearby destination. With GetMore’s ASK ONCE service you can phone your own personal assistant, and they will find, negotiate and organise everything for you – at the best rate possible.

So, while you’re happy to have a long weekend, take advantage of the public holiday by celebrating all women – mothers, grandmothers, wives, daughters, sisters. Make Women’s Day a memorable day for the special women in your life.
