    I wish you would educate your staff then. I was asked my age (61) by the cashier at Fourways Builders Warehouse who said I didn’t qualify as you must be 65

      Dear Mike

      Thank you for taking the time to send in your query.

      The information on all businesses on the YEI website is verified by the business concerned. We have alerted Builders Warehouse to your query, and have asked that they let us have updated information, if the content above is indeed outdated.

      As soon as we hear from them, we will update the information.

      Kind regards
      Marilyn, YEI Editor

    YEI received the following comment from a reader, Henning:

    At Builders Warehouse, The Glen, when enquired about a Pensioners card at the information desk, I was informed no such card is issued or exists. Please train your employees to know the services you offer.

    Builders have responded as follows:
    The age is correct being 60 or older. I will send a communication to the stores just to update them on this information

    Kind regards
    Marilyn, YEI Editor

    Re the above:

    I have just been in touch with Builders Head Office and unlike the comment above, where they said that they would inform the stores about the card, I have been told that no card exists and that the above advert is “third party” and Builders have no control over third party adverts.

    Please note that although not said on the posters in store, you can only get the discount if you are in receipt of a South African Pension, so if you are one of tens of thousands of Pensioners who get their pension from another country you will not be able to get it.

    Note: Many Ex-Pat Pensioners live in the South Coast region of KZN and Shelly Beach branch has been able to circumvent the ridiculous rule by aligning themselves to the Shelly Center Mall Pensioners Card, and they honor that one for purchases on Wednesdays at Builders although the card is valid for the Mall on Tuesdays.

      Thanks for your comments, John.

      We have just emailed Builders Head Office to confirm if the information in the listing above is out of date. I think you might be right and that one does not need a card, purely ID book, but we need to have this confirmed by Builders themselves.

      We will update the information once we receive a response from Builders.

      Kind regards

    I applied at the River Horse Valley branch for a pensioner’s discount card between Christmas and new year 2016. I was told that the card would be ready in 10 days and to come and collect it. Being back at work I could not call before today, 5 February and made a special trip in order to do so. The lady at the courtesy counter searched through two batches of cards and could not find it. She said that it would not have been destroyed yet as uncollected cards are only destroyed in not collected in 3 months. She asked me if I wanted to re-apply but I said I would rather apply at the Pinetown branch because it is closer to home to collect the card – and I was a bit peeved at the fact that after 5 weeks the card was not available and I could possibly have the same thing happen again.

    I then called in at the Pinetown branch on my way home and asked for a form to fill in for a pensioner’s discount card. I was told that they are out of forms but I could come in and buy any Wednesday and produce my ID and I would qualify for a discount – until they got the new forms in.

    I am extremely dissatisfied at the quality of service given to me and I don’t think that I will bother to apply again.
