The US is very well known for killer deals on the friday following the Thanksgiving holiday today. Sadly, many of the items are mostly out of our reach as vendors refuse to ship outside the US or accept credit cards not from the US. Good news is that PayPal and Aramex are coming together to offer you a US address and order from any place that accept PayPal. If you don’t have a Shop and Ship account, you’re in luck to open a new one at half the costs using the coupon code SNSPP50. For shipments, you can use SNSPP10 to get a 10% discount.
Users in the region will now finally be able to enjoy amazing deals from US websites on November 29th* and December 2nd* – also known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, respectively.
Black Friday marks the beginning of Christmas shopping in the United States, and retailers, both online and offline, often offer deals that can get shoppers up to 70% off on leading US brands ranging from clothing, to furniture and even electronics for the day.
Similar to Black Friday, Cyber Monday is an opportunity for consumers who want to buy electronics in the United States at a bargain, with major retailers placing special offers on a wide range of their products.
Up until today, those who wanted to enjoy the great offers had to buy a very expensive flight ticket to the US. This year however and thanks to cooperation between PayPal and Aramex Shop and Ship, shoppers in the region will now have access to the hottest and best deals on both days. Paying with PayPal on all the big US brands allows you to shop from your couch at home without having to stand for hours in time-consuming queues in malls and popular shops only to find out your favourite product is long gone. Aramex Shop and Ship is making it possible to get your shopping delivered to your door step despite the fact that most US online merchants only ship domestically.
“We’re very excited about our continued cooperation with Aramex,” commented Laurent Wakim, the Regional Manager of PayPal MENA. “Historically speaking, users in the region and other parts of the world were missing out on opportunities for great deals on top American brands. We’re happy to be able to allow our users this level of access and promote e-commerce.”
To mark the occasion, Aramex is offering a 50% discount on lifetime membership to Shop and Ship in addition to a 10% discount on shipping costs for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Signing up is very easy:
- Visit www.shopandship.com
- Click “I want to Join”
- Use this promo code: SNSPP50 and use PayPal to process the payment to get 50% the lifetime membership
For shipping, users can use the code SNSPP10 to get a 10% discount of shipping costs when processing the payment with PayPal as well.
“In the region, shoppers are increasingly forgoing traditional in-store interaction for a true value exchange online. Shoppers are far savvier than they ever were and know that the best deals today can only be found online and not in brick and mortar stores. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are landmark shopping events and we’re delighted to have partnered with PayPal to bring shoppers in the region and bargain hunters the best possible deals and promotions outside the region. Our goal is to always create the best possible shopping and shipping experience for consumers in the region, “said Hassan Mikail, Global Ecommerce Director and Aramex.
“Thanksgiving is a US holiday, however there is no reason why consumers in this region couldn’t enjoy the great offers on a wide range of exciting and sought-after products,” added Laurent.
“There are many reasons why shoppers in the region should make use of this partnership, not just for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, but also for all online shopping:
- Historically speaking, the address system in the region has been very different from other parts of the world, making shipping a logistical challenge. Aramex has worked tirelessly over the past years to build a strong network of deliveries, ensuring you get your products even from e-merchants that don’t necessarily ship to the region
- By using PayPal, you are adding a layer of security to your financial details – you don’t need to enter your financial details every single time you buy an item. Instead, you use your PayPal account details, making the process faster and more convenient. PayPal users also get access to a number of great deals from our large network of e-merchants around the world
- Our ‘Buyer Protection’ program is in place to ensure your rights as a consumer are protected in a number of different situations”
This joint promotional effort is valid for PayPal users in Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, and Oman and is only valid to users processing their Shop and Ship payment using PayPal. The offer is valid from November 29th to December 2nd.
