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
Sofirn shows the PayPal logo :” Sofirn”:https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Powerful-LED-flashlight-Cree-XPL-1100lm-Torcia-High-Powered-Flashlight-Torch-AA-14500-with-Light-Indicator/2933049_32796254593.html?spm=2114.12010606.layer-43txss.4.5b5c16cdsuhpQb&scm=1007.14677.92202.0&scm-url=1007.14677.92202.0&pvid=62825472-7428-4aa2-a693-45d910c579ff

But when I click on “show more” the logo is gone. Dang
I don’t want to use my CC, unless I buy a “burner” one time use gift Visa card that may work. I haven’t tried that

Some suggestions of the hottest items?
I see SF10 for $6.12 which looks superb, but I’m not into 14500.
ADDED:
C8F host $13.05. And you can get $1 off with a coupon. https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Sofirn-New-C8F-triple-reflector...

I added SF34 for my next lantern mod host. Looks like it uses a boost driver (4× 18650 in parallel) to feed 10x XML clone LED. I could be wrong but at USD 19,11 this is a good host no matter how bad the LEDs are. Imagine 50+ Optisolis in it.
I’m not into “medium” big thrower. I prefer pocket thrower or go big “giggle-ing” all the way.

Should we get select coupons now or wait until the sale starts?

I think once you cash it, you can never get it back. Better keep it until you’re ready to check-out. Just in case you changed your mind later.

Hmmm….AE should pay me for this LOL

I’m really torn on LX1330B
$29.45 is the lowest I’ve seen and can be reduced by another $2.
But I’ve watched the price too shortly to know if it’s a real deal.
And I’d like to phase my tooling investments.

TASI632A/B is much better in my opinion. I’ve been using it for a while and Djozz also tested and made some calibration to his expensive Mobilux light meter. The built in USB interface is very very useful.

I’m confused on the date. The anniversary sale is supposed to be on the 28. Why are you saying the discounts will begin on the 29th.

I found some interesting products if anyone is interested:

There’s also a $4 off $30 coupon and I believe you can score some coins and get some free additional coupon codes by installing the aliexpress app on your phone.

I see that I should have a “Apply AliExpress Select Coupon” checkbox.
The checkbox is not present. I even tried 2 different browsers.

My coupons applied automatically when checking out with Sofirn, got $2 off a purchase just under $30.

In total I paid $33.27 for a Sofirn SF11, an SF14, and two Liitokala Lii-S1’s.

Beam me up!

The game is on! Ordered a LiitoKala Lii-S1 for €2.29 AKA $2.80.
Free shipping. That is even better than $0.99 and then forced to pay for shipping!

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

Sorry, really can’t explain. I’m confused too. But looks like once you comitted to cash your select coupon to a particular store/product, it can’t be retrieved. I could be wrong

I don’t know how, I just went through the checkout process looking for somewhere to apply coupons, and there was nothing, but when I got to the summary with the pay button at the bottom, the “sellers discount coupon” -$2 had already been deducted, taking it from $29.95 with shipping (which was $0.85 on one item) down to $27.95

Beam me up!

I see there’s lower limit of amount that needs to be spent on an order. This limit depends on shop, in my cart it’s $15-$65.
None of items in my cart reaches the limit, so I can’t use any of my coupons.

You can use as much coupon as you want after you convert your coin. The coin gained before this sale begin

Example:

See “Save up to US $2.00 on orders over US $15.00”?
That’s the problem.
