There’s no better time to buy gadgets and other products in the year at almost half their prices than the Jumia black Friday sales month. And this year’s spree started two weeks earlier than last year’s event which started on November 13th. Deals started trickling in on November 2nd and people got a chance to buy high end products at discounted prices. A good example is the OPPO Find X which was sold for only 5 Kenyan Shillings. That’s a mad deal right there.
Now you will get the top secrets! These ideas will help you navigate shopping on Jumia Black Friday and reduce your stress levels because shopping can be confusing at times.
Mark these dates
Jumia Friday Deals started on the 2nd of November and will run throughout the month. If you missed last week’s deals, don’t worry you have time to win big on the remaining days since the deals will take effect on all Fridays. Meaning these dates: November 16th, 23rd and November 30th 2018. The product prices are slashed up to 80% off.
Allow the platform to spam your inbox with deals and ideas because they like sharing deals on email and other social media platforms. It’s important you do this as early as now for the emails to start to generate.
Jumia Kenya has a specific page on their website that has up to 99% discounted prices on different products. Each brand has a CODE that you will use when placing an order and the prices will be slashed to suit your pocket. For example there’s a web based card that will take you to Samsung products. Once you click on it, you have a chance to view the products and the prices. Jumia is already running a good number of offers like the Samsung J4 is going for KSh 14,999 instead of KSh 26,999.
Get the Jumia mobile App
The app allows you to shop on the go and the vouchers are available on mobile. In addition, the app makes it easy for you to navigate and view the top categories including the top deals that have a timer attached to them. And it’s also easy to refresh the latest deals on the app because these things change since people are buying all the time.
Have a shopping list
Jumia has almost everything so don’t buy something that you already have. Make a list of items you need to buy, check the top deals and then by order of importance. Then have a “must find” items at the top so you can first focus on finding them as you browse on Jumia. Thank me later.
Check date and time for treasure hunts
Jumia has this thing called treasure hunt. Where only one item is available for the hunt and it’s almost 99% off. And today guys are hunting the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 which you can have it for 5 bob when you find it. Jumia states that it’s easy to hunt on the app because the clues, time and dates are sent on the phone.
Shop with a friend
This is very fun because you will give one another tips and tricks. If there are a few must have items on your list, you can work together to find them. Your friend can visit top deals section for the TV you want while you are hunting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Wake up early in the morning to check the deals since these items are on high demand.
Check the return policy
This one can be stressful. Some items on Jumia can be returned after seven days under certain conditions. But the treasure hunts cannot be returned or exchanged. In addition, get the receipts for the items you buy. It will make it easier on your recipient, should a return or exchange be needed.
