On the other hand, Jumia has well partnered with MTN Uganda to give a special offer to all MTN Pulsers – a 50% discount on all Jumia services. Already signed up pulsers can dial *157*4# to redeem this offer while new subscribes should dial *157# to sign up as a new pulser and then dial *157*4# to redeem the offer as well.
For those that are unaware, MTN Pulse was launched in February this year, and its a community platform targeting the youth, giving them the power to be themselves, unleash their full potential and live life with No Fear. In addition, MTN Uganda also launched MTN Shortz last week as part of the pulse movement. MTN Shortz is a platform that allows subscribes watch videos of a maximum length 10 minutes on their mobile phones/tablets on an active data bundle limited to MTN Uganda customers. Its more of like YouTube, but limited to Ugandans, and doesn’t allow video downloads.
