12 days. 12 categories. One epic 2016 Jeep Renegade that could be yours. Are you ready for Jumia's Black Friday shopping marathon?
How is it that, not too long ago, we got the news that Egypt's automotive companies are no longer selling cars, but somehow Jumia has managed to not only get their hands on a 2016 Jeep Renegade, but for some reason they're choosing to give it away? We had to call them up and make sure they're not absolutely crazy; apparently they're not – they're just pretty badass. So, what's the deal with this free Renegade? Well...
You know how Americans charge like an untameable stampede on Black Friday, their eyes practically twitching with 'Oh my God I've gotta have it' because they only have one day to get their hands on crazy discounted deals for things they didn't even know they wanted? We feel sorry for them, having to risk getting their eyes jabbed with a hanger while fighting another shopper over the last cashmere sweater. Over here, we do things bigger and better.
Instead of a one-day in-real-life fiasco of deals where you risk being run over by a herd of angry shoppers, Jumia's Black Friday sale is a 12-day from-the-comfort-of-your-pjs-sipping-wine-on-the-couch shopping marathon. Starting right now and until November 25th, be ready for a giant shopping marathon of epic proportions. There are 12 days, each day packed with a thematic sale based on one of Jumia's online categories. There's a whole day dedicated to fashion sales, a whole day dedicated to food sales, a whole day dedicated to health and beauty sales... That right there is three days' worth of marathoning for us. You can shop for as many days as you want – one, two, or all 12 – but, as with most things in life, with hard work comes great (Jeep-shaped) reward.
Every time you make it to the finish line – the checkout, that is – you get automatically entered into a lottery where the winner gets a 2016 Jeep Renegade. Yes, the only way to land that hunk of steel as your trophy is if you shop hard enough. To make your marathon easier, Jumia gives you options – you can pay cash on delivery, credit card on delivery, or credit card on the website.
Today's the day, so you better be prepared – order lots of pizza, stretch your clicking finger, and prepare to take on the 12-day marathon from the comfort of your couch. Then, when all is said and done and you've given this marathon every ounce of online shopping you could ever give – you take a deep breath and release a sigh of relief as the fruit of all your hard work gets delivered to your doorstep or at the nearest hub.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
