Buy-2-Fly with Jarir Bookstore

How the largest retailer of books and consumer electronics in Saudi Arabia managed to shoot up sales with a powerful Free Flight Incentive


Client Profile
  • Jarir Bookstore is the largest retailer for books and consumer electronics in Saudi Arabia.
  • The business has 42 showrooms in Saudi Arabia and 5 showrooms in other GCC countries (Kuwait, Qatar, UAE) and is one of the most recognizable brands in the Gulf.
  • Jarir sells roughly half of Saudi Arabia’s laptops and a third of the market’s tablets.
  • The company expects to continue to grow its offline presence by having more than 60 stores by 2018.
  • At the same time, Jarir is continuously improving and extending its online presence as Saudis are among the highest Internet users per capita in the world.


Objectives & Performance

The objective was to run a tactical short term promotion to both increase sales in general and to tackle a 17% sales drop in December 2015. The Promotion had its desired effect and resulted in a sales increase of 27% (against the market).



We created a Free Flight campaign  tailored to Jarir’s specific needs: each customer who spends at least SR 2,000 / QR 3,000 ($530/£380) received a free flight voucher. Customers could either shop in one of over 40 Jarir stores or online.








“Spend at least SR 2,000 / QR 3,000 on products of your choice and receive a free flight voucher.”

Marketing Collateral & Media

Jarir created a variety of marketing collateral to promote the campaign on- and offline.
