KAMPALA – Diamond Trust Bank (DTB) has partnered with Jumia Uganda to bring its digital services closer to customers ahead of Jumia black Fridays in a bid to effectively serve its customers while prioritizing convenience and safety.
The bank has over the years encouraged customers to adapt to and embrace the convenience associated with digital banking.
Ahead of the Jumia Black Friday sale, the Diamond Trust bank digital savings account will be easily accessed on the Jumia Uganda platform with Jumia shopping vouchers up for grabs.
With the current unprecedented times, people are constantly being encouraged to limit their physical interaction and rather opt for online services to avoid potential risks associated COVID-19.
Speaking at the launch of the Jumia Black Friday, Mr. Varghese Thambi the Managing Director Diamond Trust Bank, encouraged the general public to embrace digital banking options to avoid physical contact and do shopping online on sites like Jumia Uganda.
“Such services are convenient and accessible and I, therefore, encourage our customers to actively use the bank’s digital channels while shopping. Jumia Black Friday is a countrywide campaign and we at Diamond Trust Bank Uganda are offering shopping vouchers to customers that sign up and open up Digital savings accounts with us during the campaign period ending on November 30, 2020,” he said.
This year’s Jumia Black Friday campaign set to run from 6th November – 30th November will feature discounts of up to 80% off on popular brands.
While the popular campaign is offering consumers affordable pricing on a wide assortment of products ranging from home essentials to the latest tech, it is also supporting SME’s and local vendors whose sales were greatly impacted by the COVID-19 restriction measures enacted earlier in the year.
The DTB Digital Savings account is a Zero balance Savings account, with Free Gold Master Card Debit (with on-line transactions enabled) and m24/7 Mobile Banking service, an option to have all Banking services at affordable charges.
Ron Kawamara the Jumia Uganda Chief Executive Officer said this year’s Black Friday campaign is different from their past campaigns.
“It comes at a time when a lot of our vendors are struggling to get back on their feet after being affected by COVID-19. This campaign will therefore help them to leverage the hype and excitement around Black Friday to reach more customers,” he shared.
