Big Aliexpress sale coming up again!!

Aliexpress is having one of their big deals again soon. I know many of you guys have gotten in on their deals the last couple times. I love these sales! In fact I put items in my watch list way in advance just so I can use coupons from this sale on them. I will be picking up emitters if nothing else.

http://activities.aliexpress.com/the-seven-seas-sale.php

For people who don’t know the deal on these deals it’s pretty interesting. They offer a bunch of stuff for 50% some of them are good deals many of them are inflated prices and dropped down to ok prices. So you really do have to do your shopping. Also take advantage of their coupons to get the best prices.

Right now the games start so that you can win points for coupons. Also keep an eye out for the free coupons they post just before the sale. These will make some good deals great deals and the coupons are good for all kinds of things.

Ali-express is basically the e-bay of China. Lot’s of suppliers put their stuff on there for sale so check their feedback. They don’t take paypal but they DO hold your money on escrow and they don’t release it until after you get what you buy and approve it. I have never lost my money. I have had to wait and get my money back though and that is a pain in the back side. So it does pay to check feedback. Now I have also been shipped junk or lights that are not as described. Each time that has happened I have gotten my money back and ended up with the light. They have never made me send it back to get a refund.

Good luck and have fun and PLEASE if you find a super deal post it here so that others can see it and take advantage of it as well, even if you don’t buy it yourself post it if you think others might like it.

I’ll start with a good supplier of emitters.

This guy will probably have some of his on sale but even if he doesn’t the coupons will still work anyway and bring these prices down. Also he has the lowest price on emitters around to begin with.

Thank you for heads up. I have never participated in this kind of sale before. How does his coupon code stuff work? Seems a little silly right now but... A buck is a buck Big Smile

Once you get enough points you cash it in for a coupon. Or if you catch them the day before the sale and during the sale (start of each hour) they will have some free coupons and some coupons for sale. Usually for a dollar. They will announce the deals sometime along the way but even then they are not close to telling you about all the deals that will be on sale that day.

The day before their sale starts they modify their search engine to include a drop down menu for sales only. So I type in flashlight (or whatever I’m looking for) and then hit the sales button. Then only the sellers who are participating in the sale show up on the search. I have gotten emitters price super cheap, lots of flashlights, fishing stuff and even a 50% off android gaming console. I even picked up a BTU shocker for $75 on one of these sales that was when they were still $150. Ric will probably have a couple lights on sale.

Also if people are looking for a cheap tablet this is probably the sale to get one.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

I never bother voting for any of them. That part of the sale is like wallbuys Instant Kill thing. Only so many people get them at that price. But the ones who do get them get unreal cheap stuff. Pennies on the dollar. For me it’s about the 50% off stuff and that won’t be announced until later and most of the good 50% off stuff you will find using the search engine. Also some stuff will be for sale that day for 20 or 30 percent off too.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

You’re welcome and hopefully you will find some good deals. One of the stores to check out is the Yupard store they usually have some really cheap lights. Not usually 50% off but good deals and then with the coupon some really hard to beat deals.

Don’t bother with the “Gaga Sale”. There’re only 5 pieces or something of each and always some Russian using automated bots will get them all. This is even more popular than Wallbuys so there’s almost no chance to get.

But the regular sales are to go after. Cheap even before coupons. But make sure to double check during the sale day to make sure seller hasn’t inflated the price.

Yep that’s exactly right. Normally I find more lights I want to buy than my budget will allow. But always from normal lights that are on sale for that day only and I also use a coupon. There won’t be many 50% off lights but lots of them will be 10-30 percent off and with a coupon you can pick them up even cheaper.

No BLF coupon, you have to play their silly game. That or normally just before the sale starts they offer some for free or during the sale they also give some away at the start of the hour. Limited quantities. They also sell some coupons for a buck.

Are the coupons only for higher prices like 30$ and up like the game coupons or for the small lights as well?
I have some lights on my watchlist, but most are cheap ones.

The coupons have a minimum purchase requirement although if you purchase from the same seller you can combine them to meet the minimum. Also make sure to put anything you see that you want in your watch list because the day before or the day of the sale some of them will probably be discounted. So even if you don’t hit the minimum you will most likely have a couple that are on sale. There are several sellers on aliexpress that you probably know already. Wallbuys for instance has a store so does Ric who sells the Shocker and other lights. I mentioned the Yupard dealer earlier for this reason as well. They have several nice lights for cheap already and combining a few of them can allow you to use a coupon and get a super good deal.

Last time on sale I used two coupons:
2$ off 10$
5$ off 25$

Now there is only 3$ off 29$ (smallest total).

Doesn’t look that good anymore but lets see on 19th.

It’s quite good if you already have something on your mind – e.g a tablet at $80. During the sale it probably drops 10% to $72. Sounds like wishful thinking but this actually tend to happen since there are so many sellers. After that you can also apply $10 coupon at the price, making it $62. That’s close to 25% discount, very good deal I must say.

Aliexpress also don’t seem to mind multiple accounts, so practically no limit on the coupon (as long as you don’t mind playing the silly games).

Yep and I think I have about six accounts now. I’m not even sure why I ended up with so many but I think it was just that I changed e-mail addresses a bunch over the years and it was easier to just start a new account than keep track of my old addresses and check them all the time.

Does it include a plastic tube to fit an 18650?
Does anybody own this light? Is it any good?

My English isn’t perfect but I’m trying to improve it. If you see something that doesn’t sound right or is just plain wrong, please feel free to point it out! Smile

This Aliexpress looks interesting. Definitely a differnt way of doing things compared to Alibaba years ago.

Freeme - it is not bad but not the deal they claim.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QO9HGO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s0...

Do understand that it is not a leatherman (nor the one you show) but nowhere near the cost. I use my snap-on every night.

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most

I have that multitool from WB promotions a while back for $5 (at lease very, very similar). It’s still good deal for $12 but main problem for my unit is that there are no lock mechanism for knife and other tools and they tend to open by themselves. That’s such a PITA. I haven’t tried to tighten a screw though because on other side a screw is tighter (should be) and it’s not easy to open tools there. You get what you pay for.

looking through there upcoming 50% off sale for lights, i couldn’t find anything that was worth buying and the prices were hugely inflated
I really hope they announce more items as this year will be a huge dissapointment.
