It's pretty clear that AE registered to claim their $2 BLF New User coupon, and left. Big Smile

WTF?

welcome back coupons can range from 2 off of 4 to 3 off of 5 or similar.

How much time is required to avoid logging in AliExpress for such a thing to work?

It can be as short as 3-4 weeks. But you can’t be logged in on the app. you have to be a “userloss” and they are trying to win back your business.

The best coupon I have ever gotten was $6 US off of 6.01$ purchase.

recently an aliexpress order showed it was delivered to another state

(tracking)

if it really was, then i need to reorder and get a refund

how can i be sure if it really was shipped elsewhere, or is the tracking just wrong?

i would rather start the process now if it was shipped somewhere else
otherwise i can wait i guess
if it is still coming to me

Most likely the seller gave you the wrong tracking number. Try to contact the seller and ask him if he has another tracking number.

Maybe the parcel will still arrive or the seller needs to reship it. As long as the purchase protection is still active you can always apply for a refund.

yes, thanks but i don;t want to wait

though it sounds like no choice, since your solution would require a lot of back and forth communication and good english with the seller

unlikely!!

“These coupons are no longer available …..” — that’s the “welcome back” coupons that pop up. Try one and pfui, it’s no longer available.

AE coupons are almost a joke. $1 off $20 is ridiculous amd covers my sales tax most of the time. $5 off $199 is even worse.

AE, please give us useful coupons.

Dogpiling on, I recommended Facepalm AX to someone because I saw a blurb for “20bux-off” coupons for new users who’d sign up. Figured 20bux off a Q8 or whatever she wanted might be worth it.

Uhhh, yeah, something as useless like 20 separate 1buk coupons that could only be used one per order.

Uhh, yah. Don’t think I’ll be doing that again…

I get these all the time, every other week:

Many times it is 3 $US off of purchase of 3.01 $US minimum.

The landing screen looks like this for me:

their ‘sales’ are the same thing

just wander aimlessly in their back room – thousands of unsellable items, hoping you actually need some of it for 3% off

I’d like to know where you got those. I get useless promotions for stuff I never buy and coupons that have restrictions on them that render them equally useless. I don’t usually spend over $25 on AE, so $1 or $2 off is a joke. I’d buy more if I could get $3 off any amount over $3.

I click on this link after not having logged on for a while:
https://sale.aliexpress.com/__pc/userloss_pc.htm

What I also like about AliExpress are the store coupons. Before you click on products, add them to your cart or even purchase/pay: look at the main storefront whether the shop has store coupons (ie 1 off of 10 or something).
Also, AliExpress select coupons are great for some purchases.

The one big advantage at AliExpress is that you can “stack” all of these coupons.
I just bought a tactical backpack, the same model was available for 18.34 and also for 19.21 or something.
Picked the more expensive one and got 2$US off of it because it was over 19. Then there was my personal coupon (-3 $US) and the AliExpress select coupon.

Including registered shipping I had to pay aroun 13.10.
That’s like six dollars off of 19.21

All of this inspired me to spend a lot more time and money on AliExpress than planned.

only the increase in shipping fees are super inconvenient, but you’ll have those in many shops now.

I've been taking peeks in AliExpress the last months, and can't say that I like what I see.

Overall, shipping costs have increased. To the point that the offers of some sellers, as I see them, are outright wrong, with ridiculous shipping cost quotes. Take a look, for example, at this (fake batteries) advertisement with a €15.77 Facepalm shipping cost to where I live. This probably is in part caused by AliExpress being draconian and inflexible with how sales are managed. Sellers should be responsible for everything concerning their sales. In fact, China is responsible for whatever is going on with their government, and in my opinion they could choose a lot better.

I really wonder why is it so hard for me to find sale advertisements using the “seller's shipping method”. An inexpensive but with 0K speed shipping method can be had.

I think it is to do with the guaranteed delivery time or full refund. Basically they are charging you before, just in case it doesn’t arrive on time (and then have to full refund) – kinda wrong, unless you actually WANT it to be in your hands by a certain time, in which case you are covered for a full refund – ironically that doesn’t help if you needed it by that time and it didn’t arrive lol! A refund won’t power your device and you are let down either way.

In my opinion, item costs are up. shipping costs are up. but, delivery time is down. across all my purchases the average delivery has gone from 16.5 days to 14.3 days. (mathematical average, not exact numbers)

AliExpress' user last post was 24 days ago. It is to have had some other contribution already, just consider why it didn't happen. Don't lose your time here trying to span AliExpress user's attention.
