Ahoy Matey! If ye ‘ave ever wanted t’ feel like a pirate, then yer time be now. Ok, let us translate that for those who don’t speak pirate: “If you have ever wanted to feel like a pirate, then your time is now.”
Jumia Mobile Week is coming up and historically, this 7-day event has been characterized by discounted smartphone prices, a few smartphone launches and the mother of all, the daily treasure hunt that sees one lucky shopper walk away with a premium phone at a throwaway price, every day. Well, Jumia is not abandoning tradition this year and Mobile Week returns as from March 19th to March 25th, 2018.
The highlight of this year’s Mobile Week will be the treasure hunt and inside the chest, there’s the all-new Samsung Galaxy S9 that will be going for Kes.5. The treasure hunt begins on Sunday 18th March at 11:59 and the rules of the game as are simple, browse through Jumia catalogue and spot the phone. If you think that’s easy, here’s the tricky part, the device will be hiding under a different name in an unexpected category, for example under women’s clothing. The first person to spot the phone and successfully checkout gets Samsung’s latest and greatest phone at the price of a lollipop.
Aside from the almighty Galaxy S9, the OPPO F5 will also be put in the treasure chest for the same price of Kes.5 bob, in alternating days.
