Jumuia Kenya online shopping tips
Buying appliances and other commodities online can really save you a lot of money and time as compared to taking yourself to retail outlets. This is because brands tend to capture the attention of buyers by selling their items at a lower price. You can save additional money in Jumuia travel, food, and so on if you follow the tips below.
- Compare online stores
This is the first step to saving more money when shopping in Jumuia Kenya. Go to numerous stores like Killimall, Kaymu, and so on. Get the average price from each store and compare them with local retail outlets. Also, check the reputation of the store that has the cheapest offer.
For instance, you can’t purchase a 43-inch television from an unknown store just because they are selling it at Ksh. 14,000. Chances are that you will receive a faulty TV which you will never get compensation. Go for quality and not the price if you do not want regrets.
- Look for online coupons
Go to social media and search for topmost brands of the item you wish to purchase. This is because retails can offer discount coupons on their pages. You can also subscribe to their mailing list to receive any alerts to your inbox. Companies like Kaymu, Killimall, and Jumia mainly offer Ksh. 500 coupons and above. This is a pretty reasonable amount you should save.
- Look for Promotions and hot deals
Jumuia Kenya offers promos like clearance sales, mega sales, buy 2 get 1 free and so on throughout the year. Like and follow their Facebook page to stay updated on their current offers. Don’t get confused, like “Jumia” Facebook page and not “Jumuia.” Also, remember to follow various retailers as they also offer discounts.
- Use a credit card
A credit card usually has spending limits. With it, you can easily control temptations to purchase unwanted items. A debit card, on the other hand, is linked to your account and doesn’t have any restrictions. For this reason, you can spend a lot of money on items that were not on your budget.
