Yakata sales is Konga’s version of Black Friday
Access Bank Plc has partnered with Konga to unveil the ‘Konga Yakata’, Nigeria’s biggest sale of the year which goes live today November 11 and ends on Sunday, December 12, 2021, to offer free deliveries with a 10 per cent discount on every item purchased within the one-month promo period, this yuletide.
In a statement, Access Bank said this year’s edition of Konga Yakata is set to take on an extra dimension as millions of shoppers await what has been described for the first time as Konga Yakata Plus.
Konga Yakata is widely regarded as the biggest sale event in the annual shopping calendar in Nigeria.
The 2021 edition of the sales fiesta is set to run across the various platforms in the Konga Group including Online Offline stores across Nigeria, discounted flights tickets and hotels to various locations around the world via Konga Travels and Tours, as well as huge deals on KongaPay, its Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)-licensed fintech subsidiary, among others. In addition to the offerings such as flash sales, treasure hunts, freebies and bundled products, among others, the management of the e-commerce group has taken the 2021 edition of Konga Yakata to a new level with the addition of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative in partnership with Access Bank Plc.
Group Head, Retail Marketing and Analytics at Access Bank Plc, Chioma Afe, said: Access Bank is offering an extra 10 per cent discount to shoppers on Konga who pay for purchases with their Access debit card. This offer cuts across customers purchasing gift bundles of food items for donation to the needy under the Konga Kares programme and shoppers on Konga Yakata.
