Kenya’s top online retailer Jumia has launched a mobile week megathon in a move that will see smartphone buyers get deals on phones for as cheap as Ksh 4,000.
The firm says thousands of mobile phones will go on sale at steep discounts during Jumia‘s Mobile Week Megathon sale set for between the 2nd and 8th of June.
Unlike the Black Friday Sale which lasted for a day, the Mobile Week will span a whole week and will feature some of the world’s most renowned mobile brands including Innjoo, Infinix, Samsung, Fly Mobile, Microsoft and Tecno with deals which will sell at ‘jaw-dropping prices’.
In a statement, Managing Director Parinaz Firozi said, “I am confident no other company can match the prices of mobile phones Jumia will be offering during the mobile week since we are working directly with the brands to get exclusive deals and even launch new handsets.
Customers who download the Jumia application for Android, IOS, Windows or Black Berry will receive exclusive early access to the deals from 5:00AM in the morning before the deals go live at 9:00AM on desktop.
To ensure that customers don’t miss out on their favourite brands, Jumia will offer a different brand every day.
Among the most anticipated deals include Infinix Hot Note to sell at 10,499 down from 20,998, Tecno Y4 at Ksh 4999 down from 6,899 Samsung J1 at Ksh. 9,999 down from 10,999 and Fly Mobile Thunder 3 at 4,999 exclusively to Jumia among others.
A press conference will be held in early June to mark the start of the promotion with the launch of an original white paper on the “Growth of the Smartphone Market in Kenya”.
