Whether you’re after One Direction tickets (and we’re not in any way implying that you are) or a quick transfer of pin money to your dear old Mum in northernmost Limpopo, Shoprite have always been quick to step up to the plate, offering value-added services above and beyond the call of duty to SA’s deserving. So it will not surprise you to hear that they’ve entered into a JV with M4JAM, a micro-jobbing platform which offers really small amounts of cash for really small jobs, like popping your head out of a window to verify the accurate positions of local landmarks for Tom Tom, or filling out a quick mobile survey. Now you’ll be able to get your M4JAM payments in cash at all 990 Shoprite supers around the republic. And perhaps spend a bit of it there, too, all the while helping Shoprite get some of that pesky cash out of their system, a problem we wish we had.
Comment: Win, win and, as far as we can tell, win.
