3. Is it really worth buying 11.11 at Aliexpress?
At the beginning of the article we mentioned a great browser add-on AliSuperstar. Now let’s see how the add-on 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.
Who says, that on 11.11 there are no discounts on Aliexpress? This can be just a person, who very probably don`t know right tricks, how to buy on Aliexpress. Also read the article about Shopping myths on 11.11
Use historical graphs in Aliexpress tools also during the year. AliSuperstar shopping tool is used by over 30 000 users. The tools also have many other functions, which we described in individual articles. You can find out more about the browser add-on in the Aliexpress History and Price Comparison article or the Aliexpress Superstar video.
As you can see, there is a large offer of items and discount coupons. From our own experience we recommend to buy on 1.11. – 13.11. mainly because of discount coupons. And if you still have item for a real discount price verified by a price chart, than it really pays off.
4. Choose the right shipping so you don’t have to fill out a customs declaration
From 1.7.2021, a new VAT law is in force throughout the European Union. Therefore, from this date we all buy goods with VAT. Aliexpress is registered in IOSS and if you choose the right transport, you do not even have to fill in a customs declaration. The goods will arrive directly at your home without further worries and fees to the Post. It will travel through a warehouse or logistics center in an EU country. So ideally choose the form of transport Aliexpress Standard Shipping. The new Aliexpress service with a delivery guarantee within 15 days has also proven to be useful for us. More in the article: Guaranteed delivery within 15 days from Aliexpress.
5. Why were discounts on the 11th of November?
This day in China, they chose as such an anti-Valentine’s holiday called Singles day (Guanggun Jie). It is a day of shopping, especially when young Chinese people celebrate being free. The 11.11. was also chosen because the number 1 symbolizes exactly one person. This day has become the largest offline and online shopping day in the world.
6. Will the ordered goods arrive by Christmas?
Most likely YES. But of course it depends on the seller, on the choice of transport and also on your local post. From our experience, we have goods at home in 10-14 days. We recommend that you track your shipment, because sometimes it may happen that you are already waiting for you at the post office and only the post office forgot to inform you about it. Choose the transport for which you can track your shipment – Tracking available.
