Let me explain how this works.
You can See Treasure Hunt as the hide and seek game we played as kids.
The only difference here is that you are doing it online.
In Treasure Hunts, Jumia deliberately hides a particular item in a category you least expect to find it on their website.
They will provide you with relevant information that best describe the item they need you to search for.
You are expected to start searching for the item within the specified time. Fastest finger wins.
Let’s just assume that the iPhone 11 was shortlisted for Treasure Hunt and you are expected to find it.
We all know that the iPhone 11 is a smartphone and all of us will expect to see it when searching under smartphone category on Jumia website but guess what?
Jumia can decide to hide it in clothing category.
For more insight, Here are the rules and eligibility criteria Jumia presented as a guide for the Treasure Hunt this year.
There will be a second Treasure Hunt in the evening by 6pm.
Those who missed out in the morning have the opportunity to participate in the evening by 6PM.
