Here are the Super Deals on AliExpress. It’s updated daily with new deals. You can sort by category like clothing, electronics, jewelry and so on.
If you’re wondering if AliExpress is legit, the answer is yes. AliExpress is owned by Alibaba, China’s biggest online commerce company and perhaps the biggest in the world. Alibaba works much like Ebay where you have tons of different sellers to choose from. It’s a marketplace for products but mainly for bulk purchases. Many businesses use Alibaba to buy products at wholesale prices in order to resell and make a profit.
AliExpress is the retail side of Alibaba and is a place to purchase goods in small quantities. Just like Ebay, there are thousands of sellers and just like Ebay, some of those sellers aren’t trustworthy. Aliexpress does have buyer’s protection though to help reduce the risk.
There’s 2 guarantees that they make with their buyer’s protection:
1. Full Refund if you don’t receive your order.
You will get a full refund if your order does not arrive within the delivery time promised by the seller.
2. Refund or Keep items not as described.
You can get a full refund if your item is significantly different from the seller’s description, or, you can choose a partial refund and keep the product.
If you’ve ever bought anything on Ebay, then you know seller ratings is important. To make sure your purchases on AliExpress goes smoothly, make sure you buy from established sellers with good ratings.
You can find the store/seller rating at the top of the page right under the search bar. It’ll tell you how long the seller has been selling on AliExpress, the percentage of positive feedback, and if you hover your mouse over the store/seller name, you’ll be able to see more specific ratings as well as their contact information and what country the seller is from.
As long as you avoid sellers with bad ratings or new sellers with no ratings, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Plus, with their Buyer’s Guarantee, if something does go wrong, you can just get a refund.
Keep in mind that many of these sellers are from China which means if you live in the US, it may take a couple of weeks for your products to be delivered if you choose the free shipping option. The “express” part of the name probably doesn’t make much sense unless you live in the same country the seller is from.
Now why should you buy from AliExpress if shipping can take weeks? The prices. A lot of merchandise we buy in the US are actually made in China but because it’s sold in the US, due to middlemen, the prices can be much, much higher. People who don’t need the items right away and want to save money by buying directly from China or other countries love buying from Aliexpress.
