Online retailers seem to be becoming more innovative and creative these days to score big with shoppers.
However, if you are a smart deal hunter or want to save money, try using these clever and helpful online shopping tips shared by Jumia, Nigeria’s no 1 shopping destination.
Take part in the ongoing clearance sales
The Jumia clearance sales is presently on and it features amazing discounts, flash sales and vouchers.
It affords you the opportunity to save a lot of money despite the fact that we just hit the new year. The clearance sales started yesterday and it will run up until January 31st. So, what are you waiting for? Download the Jumia App and start shopping and saving at the same time.
Organise your emails
Signing up to newsletters and promotion lists can save you a lot of money, but are you too reluctant about getting your email spammed? If this is the case, now is the time for you to organise your emails.
One important thing you can do is to unsubscribe from junk emails. Additionally, you should activate email notification so that you will be alerted as soon as newsletters and other promotions are sent.
Leave items in your cart
Leave the products in your cart for a day or two. Firstly, you’ve just avoided making an impulse purchase. Secondly, most retailers dislike unclosed deals and will try to retain you.
Remember the trick works only when you have an account on the merchant’s website and you are logged in when you leave your cart.
Shop at the right time of the day
Sometimes you have to be strategic when you shop online. There are certain times of the day when some product items are sold at give away prices.
For example, for this Jumia clearance sales, there is the Mega Flash Sales at 12 noon daily. To wow you further, a 92k Bruhm air conditioner was sold for 40k and it sold out within minutes. So, ensure that you shop at the right time of the day this new year.
