The word “free” when used as an adverb means “without cost or payment”. Essentially, this means when you want an item, you do not have to pay for it.
Apparently, in the world of E-Commerce (according to Jumia) the word “free” means something else. Look at the screenshot below:
Jumia is selling the BlackBerry Z10 at N43,995. Jumia is selling the BlackBerry Z10 with free Aerial7 Headset at N49,495. I’m confused. How is the Aerial7 Headset free if there is a price difference of N5,500. A quick search of the website for headset reveals headset within that price range.
Somebody, please explain to me.
