Get into the festive spirit
What would this time of year be without food and drink? Take your taste buds to heaven with this deliciously cool (and boozy) frozen Christmas pudding. Speaking of booze… have you tried frozé yet? It’s basically a grown-up slushy made with rosé. Sangria is another favourite summer tipple – find out why if you’re not already a fan.
Wine & Fine Club has a range of festive selections, including red and white wines, MCC, and food and wine combinations. Order before 9 December and you’ll get it in time for Christmas!
Shop till you drop
Pick up your copy of our gift guide (it’s in Club magazine) for present ideas for all the special people in your life. We also have a gift for our favourite people – that’s all of our members: R500 off your next pair of Polarized sunglasses from Sunglass Hut.
Family Living Pharmacy Network is giving your budget a bit of relief: R5 off Dr Lee’s pain relief spray and R3 off Dr Lee’s pain relief patch or cream. We’re also giving you R25 off when you spend R100 or more on front store merchandise at select Alpha Pharm stores.
Be a winner
One of the many perks of being an Edgars Club member is the prizes we give away. This month, you could win a R2 000 Sunglass Hut gift card, an Elie Saab gift set worth R3 900, or one of five Healthspas.co.za vouchers worth R500 each. How’s that for a Christmas present?
South Africa’s national parks are spectacular and you can immerse yourself in their beauty in a whole new way: from the saddle of a bike with guided tours. Another fun way to experience nature up close is on an inflatable stand-up paddle board.
If you prefer to drive, these camping sites with breath-taking scenery are all the roadtrip inspiration you need.
You’ll restore your soul when you gaze at the sun rising over the ocean or as giraffe munch on leaves. We’ve found the top spots for waking up to the sunrise.
For summer days at home, stay cool in the heat with a stylish and durable Cape Umbrella.
For the kids
Ster-Kinekor is showing two exciting animated adventures: Moana and Robinson Crusoe. The kids will love them – and you probably will too. Who can resist Dwayne Johnson as a singing demi-god?
Continue the movie music fun at the Frozen Northern Lights Singing booths at Edgars stores in Menlyn, Canal Walk and Gateway, where little ones can perform their own version of “Let It Go”.
Fill up their tummies at select Mike’s Kitchens, Spurs, John Dorys and save up to R100 on your second main meal with Club Dine. If they want pizza, remember that you also save 10% at Piatto from Mondays to Thursdays.
For traditional Christmas carols, take the family to the Beach Festival at Silverstar on 16 December. Yes, a beach in Gauteng, running from 8 – 22 December! From 8 December – 8 January, the youngsters can bike, skate and scoot at the Pump Track at Silverstar’s Globe.
Step into the party season relaxed and glowing with this special at Bakwena, signature facials for only R95 and half leg waxes for R96 at Bionic Hair & Beauty Studio, and 10% off all standard treatments at Mangwanani African Spas.
Remember that Club VIP members save 12% on all Healthspas.co.za vouchers, which can be redeemed at over 300 spas nationwide. They also make great gifts!
It’s a date
Now that you’re all glam, how about a date? Watch a show or movie and you save.
If you’re in Durbs, Locnville, Micasa and DJ Roger Goode are waiting to entertain you at the Durban Calling music festival on 17 December.
Of course, there are movies for all tastes at Ster-Kinekor. Office Christmas Party and Almost Christmas for laughs, and Star Wars: Rouge One and Assassin’s Creed to satisfy your action fix.
Montecasino is the place to be
If you’re in Joburg this festive season, head to Montecasino. For a romantic night, take advantage of the special rates at all three Tsogo Sun hotels there, and even run away with the circus. Cirque Éloize iD has a blend of acrobatics and dance that’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. For a more traditional act – with human performers only – The Great Moscow Circus is a must-see. Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Queen’s Diamond, a ridiculously funny play, will help you laugh off any year-end worries.
Young animal lovers will be delighted with the holiday programme running at Montecasino Bird Gardens from 12 to 15 December.
Premier Hotels & Resorts, one of our new benefit partners, gives a touch of luxury to your stay – without the price. Check into one of their game reserve resorts or city hotels for your getaway.
For an indulgent year-end holiday, turn to Legacy Hotels and Resorts. From a city stay in the heart of Johannesburg to a tranquil escape to the bush or cosmopolitan getaway in Cape Town, you can have the holiday of your dreams.

From jetting off on holidays to going to the movies and sending flowers to a special someone, we’ve had an amazing year with you.
Remember, Emergency Club has you covered. Keep our emergency contact list handy and give us a call if you need medical, roadside or home assistance.
