8 People You Should Avoid During Black Friday Sales

It’s mid-November, which means two things; detty December is close by and it’s time for the annual Black Friday sales galore.

This year’s sales are extra special because it’s the first sales we are having post-COVID-19 (well, it’s post-COVID 19 in our minds) so everyone is going all out to shop for things without worrying about lockdowns or its hassles.

As you go about scouting for the best deals, there are certain people you should avoid like a plague, because their bad luck or vibes can affect the deals you may get. We compiled a list of the types of people that you need to hide from right now.

1. Slackers

These guys cannot be bothered. They don’t understand that Black Friday is a serious business. If you want to get the best deals, avoid them or they will drag you down. These are the ones that will remember Black Friday on November 26 and will ask you to chill till then. My friend, rebuke them all!

2. The Ever-ready

This set of people are always ready, especially for special deals like those on Jumia. They are logged in on their laptop, tab, and phone at the same time so they can get to the special deal of the day first. So, these people are good on their own, just move far away from them. They are the kinds that find the ₦5,000 iPhone 12 while your internet is loading right beside them.

PS: You would both be using the same internet but their jazz is always on overdrive.

3. Bulk buyers

Avoid them like you avoid semo. These ones will buy seven shirts in eight colors and not leave anything for everyone else. They are the ones that bought all the Adidas Core Sneakers Grand Court Base at 59% off during the Adidas brand day yesterday and are still looking for more. Why would you want to be friends with a greedy person?

4. Smart and tricky buyers

These people and the people that reminded teachers of assignments are in the same group. They’ve been planning for this day for months, they know what they want to buy and head straight for that section. They are spending ₦365,78.97 exactly. They are that good.

If you are not serious, you would even help them buy some of the things they want but have not ‘budgeted’ for. If this person is your bae or boo, just accept your fate. It’s also a good thing!

5. The ‘forgetters’

On the list of people to avoid, these people are the worst. Anytime there is a special deal, they always ‘forget’ to tell you and then come to lament on the big deal they got, when they wanted something even bigger. These ones are the generals in your enemies’ army. We hope you know.

6. Window Shoppers

These are professional stockers. Their cart is never empty but they always seem to disappear just before it’s time to checkout. Enough said…

7. Voucher Vultures

These ones have been hoarding vouchers worth hundreds of thousands of naira and best believe they are getting the best deals for next to nothing while you are trying to make sure the number of items in your cart qualifies you for free shipping. They are doing #BigDealMoments, #WhatsYourBigDeal and getting vouchers of up to ₦50,000. (#ICYMI, people are sharing their mishap moments and carting away Jumia vouchers each week)

8. People who do not believe in Black Friday

These ones no sabi better thing at all. Imagine being able to get the best deals from your favorite brands and not getting into it.Now that you know the people to avoid, you are almost ready for Black Friday. The last step is to head over to Jumia or better still, download the Jumia App to secure the biggest and best deals, you might just be able to purchase an iPhone 12 for only ₦5790. Don’t forget to share with your friends, you don’t want to end up like the people you are avoiding.
