HOLD your Ali Express checkout until (EDITED: 180328)!!

There will be AE anniversary mass discounts in 18032928. You can see the amount of discount in your shopping carts. But the discount will only be given in 18032928. If you check out earlier or later, you won't get it.

I think it's a good idea for anyone who sees this post to "bump" this thread until 18032928 so it's visible to everyone.

EDITED: Its 180328, sorry guys. I'm not very good counting dates

Maybe this belongs in the "No Stupid Questions" thread, but...

 

As best as I can tell, AliX is located in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.

 

There's a 12 hr. difference between where I am (KY, USA) and Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.

 

When it's 08:30 today, 3/26 here in KY, it's 20:30, 3/26 in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.

 

If AliExpress is expressing the discount price for one day only (3/29), is it my 3/29 or their 3/29?

Great... Carnac the Magnificent tells me I just signed up for yet another expensive hobby.

Smile! It makes others wonder what you've been up to.

If I put it there, people can’t bump it to help others see it

Thanks for the reminder. Thinking of getting a Carnival watch if the discount is good enough.

do you guys have any amazing Aliexpress flashlight deals? Or electronics deals? With the exception of the Lii-S1 charger deal, all discounts are minimal, like pennies off on a cheap item.

I got 10-15% that results in almost $50 in total. But in my case I put many items in medium quantities each.

I believe the items you have linked do not offer any discounts. There is a little logo like this:

with discounted items

@Jon, try to find other sellers with the same item. Not every sellers join the promo.

On some items in the cart I have “get select coupons” button. There is an offer for a $2 coupon and a link to “more coupons” site.
On that site there are up to $10 coupons.
I understand that an item is “select” when they offer me $2 coupon. If I have a “select” item that’s over $10.05, I can apply $10 coupon to it, right? Or wrong?
Also, can I buy multiple $2 coupons, so I can discount more items or is it one per customer?

Yes I got some too. I don’t know and don’t bother too much about it. I usually cash all the coupons I have to get the lowest amount to pay, simple!
FYI, you can get more coupons just by installing the mobile apps and keeps checking in (open the application and login into your AE account) daily until end of this month. USD 2 worth coupon per day.

By adding stuff to cart you can get $10/day. It’s random, looks like every time you add something you get $1 with ~50% probability.
I prefer that to giving them access to my phone.

At time of writing, all the AliExpress anniversary discounts I’m seeing are counting down from 22 hours, 15 minutes. From that, I make the start time:

0700 GMT / UT on the 28th of March, 2018

i.e. tomorrow.

If it were not for Daylight Savings Time, which started last weekend.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I’m located in the exact same time zone as China (GMT +8), our time here is 6:45pm (March 27 2018), but it says the sale will start in 20:15 (20 hours 15 minutes) tomorrow. (ie, the starting time is March 28, 2018 15:00 for GMT+8 timezone).

Also, even though I’m located comparatively near China, I also get similar long estimated shipping times..

If using the App (I’m using Android phone), the time start should display properly there (unlike on PC web browser, which may or may not identify correct date/time of the sale)

I am new to Aliexpress, I would like to use paypal, some stores use paypal and some do do not. So that limits my selection? or is there a method to use paypal with all transactions?

I have the exact same question as Paul, above. Specifically for the Sofirn store and the great deals. I obviously would like to use PayPal, but if that’s not available for the Sofirn store, whats the next safest option? Thx

Just discovered this wonderful addiction.

Right now this is tempting, but without paypal for me I am hesitant.
On The Road M5

I have the M3 I like it a lot , I would like the AA 14500 version.

And this too SF11

the Sofirn store shows the PayPal logo while On The Road store does not

Hmm, I read this at the Sofirn store: “You can pay using Visa, MasterCard, Western Union, QIWI, Maestro and bank transfer.ect.All payments made on AliExpress are processed by Alipay.” But I see now that you mentioned it, there is a PayPal logo. I hope that works, thanks for info.
