Sofirn, this is not cool: some 11-11 deals have a higher price than this afternoon (DF10, SP36, and likely more). I’m getting less excited over the sale if the deals change for the worse.

Just wondering, are you sure the price was different or could it be currency fluctuation? I think the prices might be set in USD, and if you are viewing in another currency, they will change based on the exchange rate. Since you list your location as Amsterdam maybe that’s a factor.

Sofirn, Barry0892, Jackie Are there any codes for the SP40? This Canadian is looking to get his first Sofirn and since the Amazon deals were USA only, maybe codes + Aliexpress will make it happen? Smile

It is their store and their prices so it is ok to increase the deal prices after showing a lower price first, I just mention that it is not cool to do that and it is not good for the trust.

While there may be some special discounts in sales (a few cents there and here), don't expect this to be the rule. Some sellers raise the price of their stuff days before the sale, then lower it again while on sale period. When sellers do this usually the price doesn't gets any lower, but they do it to lure unaware people. In the eyes of those who are aware this is a moot point. I don't endorse these leg-pulls, of course.

There’s laws against that kind of thing in a lot of countries – I sincerely hope Sofirn doesn’t engage in that. I’d rather see a lower % off than an inflated % based off a jacked-up price.

I’ll base that off the USD price, and not AUD, as I know currency variations are fluid.

But only during sales there are the general ‘red’ Aliexpress Coupons and the 5$ off 65$ select coupons. This is why I prefer to buy during sales, not because of the slightly lower price in some shops.

The general Aliexpress coupons (those are the red ones, select coupons are white with red margin) can be used also in shops that don’t participate in the sales.

Agreed. The 11.11 prices essentially bring it back almost in line with the previous perpetual sale prices, and applying coupons makes it just about equal. Nothing special…

11.11 isn't the best price, its the worst; see above. I don't know what coupons you're speaking ab…

 

AliExpress Select Coupons? I think I have never used them. My balance is now €36.84, or equal to 4x 11.11 coupons. LoL! Big Smile

What happens if I press USE NOW?

How do I know what items from my wish list I can use that balance on?

I think what Jackie is saying is that 11.11 is the best price because you can use the coupons. Then the total cost is lower.

Without using the coupons, the price is not the best.

So if your not familiar with the coupons, of course the price looks high. Same for BLF related group buy codes. If you go buy a new light without the code the price looks higher. You have to know all the tricks to get the lowest price.

You have to use the 5$ off 65$ select coupons, the 1$ or 2$ shop coupons and a red Aliexpress coupon if you have. Then the price will rock. Sofirn’s Aliexpress store and some other stores allow you to use them all together.

It’s still very poor form to raise the price from (all prices USD) 48.99 to 61.24 (25% increase), and then advertise an 11:11 sale price of 40.42 (33% off, save $20.82) – when it’s more like 48.99 to 40.24 (~17.5% off, save $8.57).

While I don’t disagree that it’s still a nice drop from the average price, it’s nowhere near as large a saving as advertised, due to the immediately-before price jump. I know that laws in other countries don’t apply to AliExpress, but there’s definitely consumer laws against this in a lot of countries due to misrepresentation. Example here: https://www.accc.gov.au/business/pricing-surcharging/displaying-prices#t...

I’m just disappointed that Sofirn has chosen to do so, when other brands have not. I’d be lying if I said my trust in them hasn’t been shaken.

Wellp, I was hoping to get an item with a full Evil Love  discount, guess my balance will probably remain unused for now. Innocent

Less than an hour for sales to start. We should see the lowest price of the year I guess.

I don’t disagree that the prices will be the lowest of the year, or that they’re a good deal – they’re just far less of a deal than is advertised.

Everyone can enjoy the deals, but I’ll be a conscientious objector on this one.

Nice, you managed to actually score one of those? I tried multiple times but always got errors when I tried to claim the coupon as soon as they became available.

Hilarious using convoy as an example

Convoy doesnt even lower prices on aliexpress for 11.11 PERIOD

its the same price theyve always been

So folks love convoy NOT lowering prices, but hate sofirn for not lowering prices enought?

Hmmmmm

I don’t care about the level of discount, I care about the bait and switch. If you’re happy enough to ignore ethics for some cash off, you do you.

And yet i bet everyone here will ask sofirn for another sc31b 5.99$ code the next tine around Wink

“Ethics” is me not moaning about lower prices but setting my alarm to wee hours of the morning to collect these coupons, and playing aliexpress stupid game twice to get more of em

But then folks should boycott sofirn, till ive used the codes anyways Smile

Sofirn is trying to mislead their customers into thinking the discounts are larger than they really are.
Furthermore, according to djozz earlier message, they silently upped the promo prices as well, so people who put the items in their carts are likely to buy for more than they thought they would – and are likely to miss that.
Furthermore – in their store they showed a banner like “Click ‘follow’ to get a discount coupon”. The coupon never arrived….

Such attempts are not nice. They mean one must be always very alert when buying from Sofirn to avoid any traps.
I much prefer Convoy’s straight and honest pricing policy.

And I like deals. But I hate fake deals.

I thought it was understood that all companies raise the prices before a sale just to make their discounts look bigger. Isn’t this Advertising 101?

I’m actually shocked some countries passed a law to prevent this. Some type of “ethics” law to protect newbies who don’t know how things work. Television commercials are way way worse than this.

So what if someone doesnt get the “best deal” on a product? Sellers are under no obligation to give you the best price, they need to make profit.

This whole conversation is laughable. Ughh
