If you have been using the internet regularly in the last week or two, it is very likely that you may have come across the term “black friday” on some websites and online adverts. For those already familiar with this fairly new term, seeing it almost everywhere you go online would be normal for this time of the year.
But for those that don’t know what Black Friday is, don’t worry it’s not something bad (despite the word “Black” being in it). On the contrary the term is used to describe an occurrence that can turn out to be very beneficial to you if you take advantage of it.
What exactly is Black Friday?
Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States and is often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season (Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday of November). On this day, it has become customary for stores and sellers to offer large discounts on many items. Because of the discounts which are usually the biggest during the entire year, many shoppers descend on stores to begin their Christmas and holiday shopping on that day and the two or three days following.
While this practice started in the USA where it is now very popular, sellers in many other countries have gradually adopted it. In Nigeria big online sellers like Konga and Jumia amongst many others have also adopted it. These Nigerian online stores now offer big discounts and price slashes on many products and from events of the Black Friday of last year, many Nigerians seem to be taking advantage of it. In fact in 2013, the Konga website crashed in the morning of Black Friday due to the stupendous amounts of buyers trying to buy things on the website.
Why is Black Friday important to Nigerians?

What is On Offer this Year?
Black Friday this year falls on November 28 2014. Sites like Konga are offering discounts of up to 80% on items like Laptops, Phones, Tablets, Electronics, Fashion items and many other products. They are doing this through a special link on their site called “Yakata” and those that know this link can even start buying things at a discount now to avoid the rush of that day.
We were able to obtain that link and we now share it with all of you below:

Is it safe to Buy things online?
Konga is one of the biggest online stores and it is very safe to buy things from them. If you don’t want to take any risk you can opt for their pay on delivery where you pay them only when they deliver the thing you bought. We have been shopping on Konga for long and have never been disappointed. In fact we made a lot of money last year Black Friday because we bought many items at the discounted price and sold them some weeks later when the price was back up.
