For instance, Jumia Nigeria plans to run black Friday deals every Friday in the month of November, meaning every Friday in November you have access to a wide range of products (smartphones, fridges, wears, phones, etc) to buy at cheaper prices.
Check what you’re buying very well, don’t be excited about the price. For instance, buying shoes online is a different ball game compared to other products.
Black Friday deals can be found at conventional shops and online platforms, whichever you choose try as much as possible to protect your debit or credit cards, and check the URL of the website you’re shopping from to avoid landing on a cloned website.
