Daraz Gears Up For Black Friday With A Special QR Code

Who hasn’t heard? Daraz Black Friday: the biggest, busiest, most stratospheric sale of the year is about to be unleashed into Pakistan’s e-commerce universe in T minus 21 days.

Calendars are being marked, wishlists drawn out and the uninitiated being educated and brought into the Black Friday fold! Word around the internet is that a QR code discount is doing the rounds.

Daraz’s adoption of the QR Code as part of its Black Friday 2017 sale has taken the country by storm. From a distance, QR codes appear as an interlocked grid of pixelated black and white dots. A maze of sorts – at the end of which lies a reward for Daraz’s code-breaking fans – an additional flat Rs. 500 discount that can be availed on the Daraz app during the Black Friday sale come November 20th.

What this means is that on Black Friday this year, not only will there be up to 86% off from brands and additional discounts from payment partners, but there will also be a Rs 500 discount on the Daraz app for those who scan the Black Friday QR Code.  

The Black Friday QR code is spreading in every direction to Tier 1 cities like Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Multan, and has also infiltrated the smaller cities including Faisalabad, Sargodha, Abbottabad, Bahawalpur, Mansehra and Mardan.  

Scattered across stores and venues Pakistan-wide, the code has caught on, intriguing and inviting fans in equal measure to take on Daraz’s tempting proposition.

  2. Scan the QR code. Your smartphone may have an in-built scanner, or you can download a QR code scanner from the Play/App store.
  3. Once the code is scanned, you land on a page that gives you your voucher code- save that code somewhere so you can use it on Black Friday.

Daraz has also partnered with banks and payment gateways such as Allied Bank, HBL, Silk Bank, MCB Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Easypay and Keenu that are offering additional discounts to their customers.

Faisal Nadeem Siddiqui, Group Head – Digital Banking said, “Allied Bank has always played its part in bringing in new technologies and has recently embarked upon digitization of payments. By becoming a part of this mega shopping event, we are confident that we will be able to move the populace more towards cashless spending trends.”


      • You should immediately change your name. People like you are a black dot on Muslims, inferiority complex ka shikar.

      • Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

        “The best day on which the sun has risen is Friday; on it Adam was created; on it he was made to enter Paradise; on it he was expelled from it; and the [last] hour (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) will take place on no day other than Friday.” (Muslim)

      • You are the only one who is making fun of himself here. These libtards don’t leave any opportunity to make fun of themselves hahaha oops.

      • The “Black” In Black Friday doesn’t refer to the color but the misfortune that happens on that day according to the west.

        • This has nothing to do with misfortunes if we are talking about shopping festival.

          It was a common practice for businesses to record their losses in red ink and profits in black. Thus ‘black’ in “Black Friday” simply denotes that owners of stores gain huge profits on this specific day after Thanksgiving and hence the name Black Friday took traction.

          For this once, the black doesn’t imply any calamities.

        • “Bazurag aik aur baat b kr ky gaye hain.. “”””Aqal na hoye tey moujaan e Moujaan”

          Read with open eyes below….

          The first recorded use of the term “Black Friday” was applied not to holiday shopping but to financial crisis: specifically, the crash of the U.S. gold market on September 24, 1869. Two notoriously ruthless Wall Street financiers, Jay Gould and Jim Fisk, worked together to buy up as much as they could of the nation’s gold, hoping to drive the price sky-high and sell it for astonishing profits. On that Friday in September, the conspiracy finally unraveled, sending the stock market into free-fall and bankrupting everyone from Wall Street barons to farmers.

          The most commonly repeated story behind the post-Thanksgiving shopping-related Black Friday tradition links it to retailers. As the story goes, after an entire year of operating at a loss (“in the red”) stores would supposedly earn a profit (“went into the black”) on the day after Thanksgiving, because holiday shoppers blew so much money on discounted merchandise. Though it’s true that retail companies used to record losses in red and profits in black when doing their accounting, this version of Black Friday’s origin is the officially sanctioned—but inaccurate—story behind the tradition.

          all the actual stories related to this event are from USA and all of those reasons were related to MONEY.. crisis etc. which happened.. all that could have happened any other day too…

          So, i request you not to come up with conclusions without proper research….

  • Post karnay se phlay sooch bhi liya karain k kiya post karrhay hai. Ak din marna bhi hai aur ALLAH ko jawab bhi daina hai

  • Har wo din jo kisi k liye gham aur dukh lata hay wo asal me us insan k liye “black day” hota hay.
    Friday bhi hamare musalmano k liye ek tarah se black day yani siah din hota hay, kyoo keh is din hamare musalmano par Qayamat ka khof tari ho jata hay, Jumma ki namaz k liye karobar band kar detay hain, jis se inka mali nuqsan bhi hota hay. Is se phir depression aur zehni tanao hota hay. Choti choti bato par ghusa aata hay.
    Matlab ye jani aur mali dono tarah ka nuqsan hua.

    • “Jumma ki namaz k liye karobar band kar detay hain, jis se inka mali nuqsan bhi hota hay. Is se phir depression aur zehni tanao hota hay.”

      Hosh o hawaas me ho aap ya wse hi tanz krne ka dil chah rha hai?

      • Sach hi to hay. Aap ko bura laga hay to is me mera kia qusoor.
        Ye baat to har normal insan samajh sakta hay keh jo kaam aap khof ki vaja se kartay hain, mind par us k buhat negative affects partay hain.
        Zyada mazhabi logo ki halat is ka suboot hay.

        • Karobar chorkr namaz k liay jaingain ap to jo us wkt nuksan hua bi hga, rest assured Allah rabul izat will give you a lot more than that afterwards in ONE way or ANOTHER. To apki yay bat ghalat hai, or yahi to hai imtehan. Kon hai jo hr fikr chorkr uske samnay jhuk jae?

          Your thinking is flawed and it is not anybody’s fault if you are not a religious person. Or mene ksi ‘zyada mazhabi’ banday ko negative halat me ni dhka :) There are also many other factors which contribute to what you have said.

          Khr ap kch na kya kro agr apko esi ‘choti’ cheezon s ‘depression’ hrha h khudko, there would be plenty of other things too which would depress you otherwise.

          • Dude don’t waste ur time with this jahil. I saw lots of libtards in negative halat wat abt that. These libtards sooner or later actually commit suicides due to can’t handle life’s pressure, the materialistic garbage life they are running after all their lives. Wat a shame!

      • Bhai iss banday ka masla ye ha ky he always targets Islam, Muslims ONLY. Read his post, koi serious issue hai…but dekh lo har aik ko azadi ha kuch be khny ki…..

    • People like you might be having this kind of feeling/trauma/pain on Fridays, Muslims feel blessed on Friday and happily go to mosques offering salah.
