AliExpress coupons Grrrrrr! }(

Mmmkay so just got enough coins for a standard coupon, and saw some in this exchange coins for coupons page. Tapped over the coupon and it did nothing, it just showed the QR code scan crap and I already had the application installed. 0K, maybe I wasn't browser logged and it failed because of this.

May someone explain this a little bit further? Because I already feel like strangling them with this and all their bullsh1t€. Grrrrr! Thanks.

I think that is some sort of mistake, Lexel, but God knows. I see new red coupons appearing each hour or so.

I see a bunch of coupons in my account, but I have never been able to apply any of them to a purchase.

Bufff! I got it solved, even without Innocent rude names (I had a few cartridges in the Big Smile chamber). The standard coupons can only be exchanged in the application. However, I wasn't paying much attention to the app, first of all because I thought the coupons could be get in the exchange coins for coupons page, and later because the application's start page is so filled with ads I was ignoring it, you have to click in Coins & Coupons, then Coupon Exchange. Aaaaah!

Still, while the application has certain advantages over the browser approach (I gave a try to the product search by image/photo and it works rather well), it still is pesky because it takes hold of most AliExpress' browser links. Flat Stare

Me too. You need to meet whatever coupon requirements. Also, coupons expire if you don't use them. Getting standard coupons ($2 over $10 minimum and $10 over $69 minimum, the ones which can be applied to the whole cart) is far from free, you need to get coins which involves time and effort, and you need the app. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Coins are almost free. Just click and add coins to your account every day. I have a reminder in Google calendar for every day 11:00. I open the app and click on the Coin & Coupons icon. Subsequently to add coins. Five seconds every day. At the time of action purchases are coins for placing goods in the cart.
