5 Crazy Sales to Look Out for On Black Friday

Because who doesn’t love saving money?

Staff Writer

Black Friday is no joke – not only is it the biggest shopping extravaganza of the year, but there’s also no time to waste if you want to save some cash. If you don’t quickly buy up that item you've been eyeing for a month, someone else will and there you go – just another item in the collective graveyard of purchases you didn’t buy and might later regret - or have to pay full price for. If you don’t want to deal with the chaos of crowds in shopping centers, which let's be honest, nobody does, online retail giants have some crazy Black Friday offerings that you can access from the convenience of your laptop while you sit in bed eating your ninth Todo brownie and wiping the crumbs off your face with the wrapper.

So to facilitate your shopping from the comfort of your couch, we went ahead and made a list of the best promotions Jumia has to offer this year. Their Black Friday isn't just a Friday; it's an entire month. So from the 12th of November, until the 12th of December, it's sales galore! But between TODAY and the 18th, here are the best daily sales they've got going on - so you know exactly which day to shop for what! Enjoy. 

1. Perfumes

Your signature perfume is like your iPhone background or your elaborate coffee order; it’s the scent that defines you. But if our ‘signature perfume’ costs almost a quarter of our salaries, then you're inclined to stick to soap… or wait until the 15th of November when Jumia slashes prices on all perfumes by up to 70%.

2. Hoodies

Winter is around the corner, but that doesn’t mean our style should take a backseat. Hoodies are the perfect mix of looking good and feeling good. Also, you never have to wear a bra underneath, for like, all of winter, and no one will ever know; in other words, they are the perfect winter wardrobe so stock up on these babies. The discounts Jumia's got come Black Friday will be sure to make a sizeable dent on your winter clothes expenditures. Also, investing in a few hoodies now can help you cross a ton of people off your gift list - who wouldn’t love a new sweatshirt for Christmas? It's like the epitome of cosy.

3. Electronics

On the last day of Black Friday, Jumia offers discounts on the big-ticket items like mobiles and tablets, which means you won’t have to sell your kidney to buy a new gadget. Brands with top offers include; Samsung, Xiaomi, Infinix, Lenovo, One Click, IKU, and Motorola. 

Whether you're after a more powerful phone to keep you streaming and surfing the internet while you pretend to work, or feel like treating yourself to the latest technology (for the sole purpose of being awesome), the iPhone X 64GB is being sold at the same price as abroad. Yes, you read that right.

Also, this Christmas you can eat, drink, stay cozy and binge-watch Netflix on a new Smart Samsung TV, because at 40% off, you should really just gift yourself a new TV set for every single room of your house. Careful to not choke on that ginger cookie as you watch Hugh Grant just being Hugh Grant in Love Actually - in perfect resolution, as god intended him to be. Thanks to HD led technology and Black Friday, the fairytale happy endings to your favourite movie can come as close to reality as humanly possible.

4. Makeup

If your makeup bag is your treasure box and it's so big it takes up more room in your suitcase than your actual clothes (because what kind of savage lives off one shade of lipstick?), you may or may not have a problem. But we're not here to judge; we're here to tell you that your problem is about to be 50% off on on Black Friday as Jumia are set to radically slash prices on all Maybelline cosmetics. Men just don’t get it; they don’t understand the joy that comes with buying a new eyeshadow pallet or the quest to find a shade of foundation that truly covers your uneven skin tones. Being unable to buy the makeup you want is a fate worse than death and for one day, 16th of November, Jumia's got you covered.  

5. Bean Bags

After all that shopping, you might want to kick back and relax on a comfortable bean bag - and possibly spend the rest of winter there as you binge watch Gilmore Girls - and prices start at LE 199, so buying one definitely won’t break the bank.
