Hmm, time to go spend even more money... - I'm sure the wife will understand
Stolen from slick deals, $14 off $60 on aliexpress (all kinds of ko's and such):
AliExpress Coupon: Additional Savings On Orders: $14 Off $60+
New accounts only.
Also: they won't ship to Washington state (without a workaround).
Interesting that they don't ship to Washington why is that?
According to Slickdeals it's for new and existing members. There's directions in the post on how to apply it.
Any good deals? Seems shipping kills most everything.
The short version is that WA has pretty strict escrow laws, and the way aliexpress works is similar to escrow (you pay Aliexpress, once you get your item you approve them to pay the original vendor, unlike eBay where you pay the vendor up front). Rather than apply for a WA escrow license for each seller, they just don't ship here.
That said, there's an easy work around: put your normal address and correct ZIP code but make the state another state. I like to use VA because it looks pretty close to WA. The post office sorts by ZIP so if anyone at USPS notices they think some guy in China put the wrong state in, since I have the city of Seattle with the right ZIP:
123 Main St
Seattle VA, 98104
(not my real address, obvs)
Sweet! I'll scope it out later
Let's continue the eBay bucks promo discussion. Here's something interesting I found:
(How to Get Targeted for Bonus eBay Bucks Offers - Doctor Of Credit)
You guys remember how I suggested calling eBay? THIS IS WHY. It's quite possible they can directly put you on this list, if you just take the time to give them a call. Seriously. It doesn't take much time to call, right?
Incidentally, I disagree a bit with this info. I think I used to receive the targeted offers... but I didn't use them a couple of times, and then they stopped targeting me. So... ???
If any of these methods work out for you, be sure and post about it here (to help your fellow boardies!). Thanks!
The best way to get the eBay deals for me so far is to check these threads!
Thanks to everyone who posts them! I need one now!
Only certain sellers. I use Aliexpress and ship almost exclusively to Washington state. Just received an item earlier this week.
I think this may be dead already. Didn't work for me.
Oh well thanks for sharing the coupon info. I've never used AliExpress so I'll just wait for the next Ebay flash sale.
Do ebay flash sale coupons work if you make multiple purchases that induvidually do not meet the specified dollar amount but the total price meets the requirements. Sorry if this has been addressed before.
Same, by the time I found something doesn't seem to work..lame.
Got an email from HTS with a 15% off coupon:
Likely stacks with free shipping over 49$, but we're probably not allowed to discuss it.
FFS. People complained when there were literally two entire pages discussing how to sign up for ebay bucks. You're certainly allowed to post a coupon and a comment that it stacks with another coupon.
