It’s that time of the year when KCPE and KCSE candidates are preparing to sit for their final exams. In preparation for these exams, Jumia has launched a campaign that will see the candidates purchase examination materials at huge discounts.
The school candidates will from next week get a chance to purchase mathematical sets, calculators, log books and other school essentials for up to 60% off during the Jumia Back to School Campaign.
“We understand the stress parents face when preparing their children to go back to school – such as hiked prices and long queues. We invite all parents to save time and money, and find everything they need on Jumia,” said Jumia MD Sam Chappatte.
All school essentials under Jumia Express orders will be delivered next day, and orders above Kes .4,000 will be eligible for free delivery in Nairobi.
In the future, the e-commerce site hopes to partner with schools so that it can package particular school kits like books and personal care items, as recommended by schools. This, according to Sam Chappatte is to make things easier for busy parents.
During this campaign, customers also stand a chance to win school fees totaling up to Kes 450,000 by participating in daily Treasure Hunts.
Jumia has partnered with various vendors like Nairobi Sports House, Uniform Distributors, top Book Suppliers, Unilever and Kiwi for the Back to School Campaign. The campaign runs from the 20th – 26th August 2018 and will see over 200,000 school essentials discounted up to 60%.
