      Watch out. I had two items posted using AliExpress Standard Shipping. AliExpress took more than 90 days from the time of order to delivered the item. The confirmation window therefore ended (so cashback rejected), but max delivery window hasn't finished (coz. seller took 3 days to ship). I raised the case and AliE somehow chased up the last mile delivery company and delivered it on the very last day.

      When I asked AliE for help on the cashback before closing the dispute, AliE wasn't interested at all and rejected the case. AliE was the accused and the judge. So AliE took advantage of the extended postage window, rejected the cashback and dispute team was on AliE's side (not a surprise).

      If you must do an AliE transaction for that $2, try purchase an item with a proper shipping method. AliExpress shipping method in my case meant: seller to AliE (nearly 2 months for the item to arrive at AliE Singapore), then the sending from AliE SG to AUS (took > 1 month).

      • Yeah people have had issues with aliexpress, but honestly I ordered a couple of things last month and they took maybe a day or two over a month to arrive.

        Seems to vary from person to person (even order to order) so I might've just been lucky. Hopefully the luck continues!

      • If you must do an AliE transaction for that $2, try purchase an item with a proper shipping method.

        Choosing a different shipping method doesn't make a difference. I've bought a few items recently where I've paid for upgraded shipping such as ePacket, for faster delivery and tracking. The seller has just pocketed the shipping fee and sent via standard AE anyway and is now refusing to reply to messages. AE won't do anything until the items are overdue according to the regular (ie slow) postage deadline.

        • If a seller's default shipping is AliExpress Standard Shipping, then currently, I am avoiding the seller. The reason is that there is incentive for sellers to do that as any issue with shipping essentially becomes you (buyer) vs AliExpress.

          The seller has just pocketed the shipping fee and sent via standard AE anyway and is now refusing to reply to messages.

          As the item is sent via standard AE, the seller simply cannot and won't help you. Reason is the seller actually sent the item to AE. AE then sends the item to you (probably going through AE Singapore). I am not sure what AE is doing, but both China -> Singapore and Singapore -> Australia are very slow with AE standard shipping. They are not the only one doing that. There are other online sellers doing that.

          AE standard shipping = fulfilled by AliExpress (after the seller sent the item to AE) and unlike Amazon (which cares about providing decent SLA and actually stock the items or let you know they don't have them in stock), AE just gone for cost saving.

  • +2

    I spent $3.90 at Aliexpress, plus 43c shipping, plus 44c GST. It tracked at US$2.83 (~AU$3.85). The T&Cs say shipping doesn't count, but GST does, so my spend of $4.34 should count.
    "Sales may report to Cashrewards ex GST so the amount shown in your account may be less than $4. You will still be eligible for the bonus."
    Hopefully this is true.

      You'll be fine :)

      • If i activate this offer and another popular offer ”spend minimum $20, get $20 back”as well. Then suppose, i spend in groupon minumum $20. Which cash back m i eligible for? Or i can get all three types of cash back?
        1. Regular 5% groupon cashback
        2. Activate, Spend $4 and get $2 cashback
        3. Activate, spend $20 and get $20 cashback

        *Note: At this moment “all three” offers are active. Thank you.

        • If you activate both bonuses and spend more than $20, you'll get the $20 bonus. You need to then make another purchase of $4 or more to get the $2 bonus. You will not get both bonuses with one purchase. A second purchase is required.

    Still 0% at Australia Post. Oh well, no gifts card this time either.

    Weird when shopback is still working there

    • +4

      For transparency: a number of valid Au Post SKUs are reporting to us with sales values of $0 (and therefore $0 cashback). Australia Post Shop has been attempting to fix this for the past couple of weeks. There's no point having them live until such time this is sorted, as it generates a lot of tickets for our team. The same issue exists for all publishers, not just CR. Hopefully fixed real soon :)

        AliE seems to report USD instead of AUD (even if paid by AUD). Do we also need to watch out for exchange rate?

    Thanks TA. If I'm eligible for the $20 offer, am I able to double dip with this offer? Or would only one offer be eligible. Provided the eligibility criteria is met, of course.

      Yes, provided you make a new and separate purchase…

      Cannot be used in conjunction with any other activation bonuses that may be current at this time (separate purchase required).

      • Is Menulog count as online store and eligible for this $2 cashback? Thanks

      • +1

        Got it, thanks!

      • If I have activated both the $20 offer and this one, which will be used first if I make a purchase? The one I activated first? I thought they would double up but just read your comment.

        • +1

          The first (providing it's $20 or more). Make two separate purchases for $20 and $4 for a win win :)

    I used to consider AliExpress a good alternative to eBay.. Not anymore as my last 3 orders haven't arrived in 3 months (though you can lodge a dispute and ask for refund). On the other hand, eBay isn't that bad - orders took long but they did arrive. I was assuming that they all use the same postal method for items that ship from abroad but it doesn't seem to be true.

    • Would you be able to let me know what type of shipping was used? Were they AliExpress Standard Shipping? I recently had a similar issue. In my case, AliExpress shipping team somehow got the last mile carrier to ship on the very last day before the final cutoff. Cashback rejected (the item did not arrive before the end of confirmation window - which was 4 days before the final shipping cutoff). AliE was the accused (AliE Standard Shipping - i.e. fulfilled by AliE) and the judge (AliE dispute resolution team).

      So many shipping methods from AliE sellers. China Post based shipping methods tend to be better. A lot of other shipping methods are eventually gone through China Post. However, AliE standard shipping seems very weird. Some shipped by AliE standard shipping has the ETA of 1 month, but mine took exactly 3 months. I tried to find out from CSRs whether there are different grades / levels of AliE standard shipping, but the CSRs have zero idea.

      • I had cheap items shipped through standard post by AliExpress - I remember the courier company was ePacket in one of these orders. In some cases, their in-built shipping status shows 'delivered' but I had no delivery. Their customer support wasn't able to confirm if it was really delivered, where and when. It all looked messed up. Most of eBay international orders are shipped via untracked method so it never shows 'delivered' in that case anyway.

        • +2

          Interesting, in my case, the whole dispute case was quite unpleasant. I got to raise the case two days after the confirmation window ended. The case was immediate put in "invalid" status as it hasn't been exactly 3 months yet (because it was basically me vs AliE standard shipping team (NOT the seller)). Literally hours before the delivery window was about to end, they showed up. Then, the dispute team wanted to close the case completely and indicated that if I cannot provide evidence that I haven't received it, they will proceed with closing the case in 3 days.

          Yeah, throughout the tracking, there is so little information, but just before the case was to be judged, the delivered status was added, but in my case, they did finally deliver them.

          The whole thing feels very different when AliE is the accused and the judge. The joke is other cheaper items using cheaper delivery companies arrived 1 month before those 2 shipped through AliE and they were ordered after those 2 items.

          For now, I refuse to buy anything on AliE shipped using AliE standard shipping. I will pay more to switch to something else and if the difference to switch to China Post is about 10 cents or less, I would use that and pay the difference. Shipping using AliE standard shipping means: Seller to AliE Singapore (which could take close to 2 months) and then AliE Singapore to Australia through some weird last mile carrier. And, I do agree with you, that last mile carrier does give zero information other than marked the item as delivered when it reached the 3 months mark.

        • I'm not going to blame AE for problems caused by a massive downturn in international flights caused by a pandemic, although it's quite grating that they haven't knocked out the window for indicating package acceptance to 6 months when they know just how slow things re at the moment.

          • +2

            @Koffee: Majority of cheap postage services used by AliE sellers goes China -> Australia. Even if that didn't end up going by air, it is still China -> Australia.

            AliExpress Standard Shipping goes like this:

            • Seller sends the item to AliExpress (China).
            • AliExpress China preps the item and sends to AliExpress Singapore.
            • Either AliExpress China is choosing some sort of super cheap air (and on standby class) or by ship.
            • Then AliExpress Singapore processed it then re-sends it to Australia.
            • Again, not exactly sure which method, but slow.
            • Last mile carrier either received it very late or not getting pay enough to deliver the item quickly.

            The problem is AliE's standard shipping has 6 parties involved (7 including the sender): 4 carriers + AE CN + AE SQ. 50% of the delay is caused by AliE's decision to route AU orders via AliE SQ. AE needs to stop doing that.

    I'll probably be negged into the ground for this but this is a bargain site and i think this is a good bargain similar to this.

    Topcashback UK is offering £2 bonus with min spend £10 (A$3.62 off $18.11). Once your bonus is available, you can redeem it immediately without needing to reach a certain amount.

    Here's how it works for ebay. Find an item on ebay.com.au and then change the .com.au to .co.uk and add the item into the cart. Come back to Topcashback and then click via ebay UK and transact like you would when using CR or SB.

    I've used the money that I've earnt from cashbacks there to redeem ebay UK gift cards which I can then use to purchase items there.

    Anyway, just another cashback provider for consideration. The positives from the above experience is the 1) not limited to small purchases, 2) cashback can be redeemed immediately and 3) using the cashback to redeem gift cards (for ebay anyway).

    • +1

      Topcashback do this regularly and have done £2 bonus on even a £5 spend. It's a good post to let others know! :)

    • When redeeming ebay UK gift cards does it allow Australian shipping addresses? because ebay AU giftcard strictly AU addresses.

      • -2

        You are transacting for the ebay AU good via ebay UK. The ebay UK gift card can be used on the ebay UK site.

        And yes, the goods get sent to AU address because its an AU seller.

        • eBay AU giftcards are restricted to Australian addresses, surprising eBay UK giftcards doesn't have that restriction.

          I tried searching for eBay UK giftcards, can't find them.

    • Tried topcashback UK before, not a fan.

      They have no bargaining power, or even basic respect, from their partnered sites, which was evident when I followed up on missing tracks. They quoted their partner's responses, which only came after 3 months, and they talked to TCB like an abusive boyfriend, and TCB couldn't do anything and didn't even cancel their partnership.

      Of course TCB didn't restore my tracking out of 'goodwill' either, so bad experiences all round.

  • Should the browser extension notify me if the purchase was successfully tracked in realtime?

    I've still got a tick after purchasing but it didn't say "confirmed!" or anything


  • I clicked the "Shop Now" button on cashrewards mobile site, it then opened Aliexpress mobile app and I made my purchase thru the app.

    Can rep confirm that if the cashback will be tracked? Bought more than 2.5 hours ago, and still not yet received tracked notification.
