8. Is it really worth buying 11.11 at Aliexpress?
At the beginning of the article we mentioned a great browser add-on AliSuperstar and AliHistory. Now let’s see how the add-on or application will help you 11.11. while shopping at Aliexpress. Sometimes sellers are not very fair and try to fool you on an artificially created discount. But using price history you will discover these products with a fictitious discount right on time. We have prepared for you two examples, when it is disadvantageous to buy and when it pays off.
A. ARTIFICIAL DISCOUNT BY THE SELLER
In first example, we found the Autum dress that seller wanted to fool us with fake discount on 11.11. The seller usually sells clothes from the picture for about $17.50 . On the price history chart below you can see that the seller increased the price to $20.11 on 20.10.2019 and increased the price again on 2.11.2019 to $20.90. But as you can see seller tell us that on 11.11 he wants to sell it for “super special price” $18.28. What a “great deal :)”. In this example, we see that it’s an artificially created discount. It will only pay off to buy this dress if you use the discount coupons on 11.11.
B. REAL DISCOUNT
Another Aliexpress seller wants to offer his customers real special prices for his products. As example, the lowest price of the sweatshirt was $20.16 . Today the price is $21.62. During the Aliexpress Shopping Festival on 11.11, the sweatshirt will sold for $17.96, which is a really big price reduction compared to the retailer’s normal prices. This we call real discount. If you additionally use discount coupons, you will save a lot of money.
