All shopaholics know that November is by far the coolest month of the year, as numerous sales and promotions are on. Online stores try to attract as many seekers of Christmas presents as possible. That’s why they often sell products at low and even wholesale prices. And AliExpress.com is one of the best experts in this. When is the AliExpress sale in 2023?
Each sale in this shop is a colorful festival full of events, promotions, and fun. 11.11 Singles’ Day sale, though being not as popular as Black Friday, attracts millions of users from all over the world. Thus on 11.11 November 2017, the Alibaba sale amassed $25.3 billion – twice as much as it earned in 2016 from both the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
The representatives of the company claim that the 11.11 sale is the biggest one in terms of “scale and reach”. And it really is. The Alibaba Group earned $28 billion of total revenue on one day — 11.11.2018. In 2020, due to COVID restrictions, even more orders were made online, and the GMV of AliExpress from the Singles’ Day sale grew up to 74.1 billion! What do you think will the GMV be this year?
Does any of you remember that the Global Shopping Festival was created in 2009 by the person who became the Alibaba leader in 2019? His name is Daniel Zhang, and you can read 10 facts about him here in our blog.
AliExpress Singles Day 2023 in Detail
As Alibaba continues to make the Global Shopping Festival the biggest shopping event ever, the duration of the 11.11 AliExpress sale is extended to several days in 2023, just like it was in 2018-2020.
Within the time of the main sale you can:
- Buy products with 90% discounts.

But the sale is not the only constituent of the event, as all AliExpress promotions usually consist of several stages. This year you can take benefit of the following ones:
- Warm up: Nov 8-10 PST. To buy at this time is a good chance to save more and reserve goods at the lowest price. To do it, add products to the cart to earn coins that can later be exchanged into coupons. During this period you can also play games and win coupons.
- Sale: Nov 11-17 PST. Buy products at the lowest prices and get coupons from the stores.
Some Tips on the Presale
You can save extra money if you make a pre-order. The pre-sale will also help you reserve the goods that you might miss at the sale. Don’t forget to activate cashback before making an order to get up to 19.64% of the purchase price back in cashback.
Types of AliExpress Coupons
The coupons on AliExpress can be for a different sum (usually $1-$50) and can be used either in all stores or in the selected one only.
- Store Coupons can be won or got during promotions or on stores’ pages. You are also granted coupons when you buy from a store.
- AliExpress Coupons and Select Coupons can be used in any shop and are usually given out during and before sales.
What are AliExpress Coins and How to Use Them

- Open the AliExpress mobile app every day and collect coins.
- Play the AliLand game.

False Deals and How to Detect Them
A common problem with AliExpress sales is false deals and fake discounts. The only chance to detect them is to track prices before sales. It’s high time to start. Our Smart Cart will help you. Install our extension or the app, choose the products you want to track and learn whether the offer is real or fake.
Types of Offers
- No discount. The sellers increase the price before the sale, then decrease it at the time of the sale to the initial one claiming they sell at discount prices. As a result, you get no discount.
- Fake discount. The sellers increase the price before the sale, then decrease it at the time of the sale and say they give you say a 50% discount, but in fact, it can be a 10-20% discount maximum.
- Real offers. Many shops don’t “play games” with their customers, as they know it’s better to make a good offer to attract new clients than lie and lose more.
So what to do at the 11.11 Singles Day Sale 2023 to get the best of it?
