Free delivery

Promising  up to 50% discount

We have prepared some tips that might be handy during the period.

Compare prices and Value
before you make a purchase, be sure what the percentage slash means.
Does it include no return policy?
Does it include shipping?
Do you get a free gifts from that purchase?

Just make sure there is a value for your money.

Have a shopping list
Make a list of items you want to buy and stick to it. Sales on some items might last up to a month or more. Put those items on hold and shop for them later.

Watch out for exaggerated prices
Record the prices of the items you want to buy and crosscheck during the sale to determine the actual discount offered.
Some stores can say 60% slash, whereas the actual slash is 10% knowing a lot of shoppers won't bother checking the prices. Also some items might retail lower in other stores not participating in the sales.
Using price checker websites will help.

When Paying with Your card, Lookout for Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
In this case we can authoritatively say sites like Jumia, Konga and Yudala are safe.
If you are using any other sites participating in the sales, make sure the URL starts with HTTPS://  with a padlock icon instead of HTTP://.
