Getting coupons and discounts on AliExpress is the dream of any regular shopper. And, unlike other pages, in this store it is very easy to get them, either with the games of its mobile application or with welcome coupons for new users.
But today we are going to talk about another way to get discounts on AliExpress: the game called Bonus Buddies that we can find in the AliExpress mobile app and in this link.
What can we earn with the Bonus Buddies game?
This promotion to get discount coupons called Bonus Buddies offers you an initial discount and three chances to get the jackpot, which is up to $200 in discount coupons.
If you don't get those three chances, you can also share a link with your friends to get extra games. You can get up to $200 to shop at AliExpress on a daily basis, so keep an eye out if you don't know about this promotion, because it's really easy to get it.
How to play Bonus Buddies to get $200
If you want to get a good discount, this is one of the best opportunities because it is very easy. To play Bonus Buddies you have to access from here or through the AliExpress mobile app. Look for the Bonus Buddies button on the app's main page. The icon may vary with different updates.
You just have to enter and you will get an initial bonus for participating. Then AliExpress will tell you what is the jackpot you can get, the maximum is $200 and will give you three games to spin the roulette.
By spinning the roulett, you will be able to get:
- Lucky points: They represent the percentage of chances of winning the jackpot. For example, 80 lucky points means that you have an 80% chance of winning the jackpot.
- Tricks to win: These are hints that explain how to win the jackpot.
- + Bonus: This is extra money that is added to the total amount. When you reach the target you can claim your prize.
- Prize: If you manage to land here, you will be able to claim the amount of the coupons directly, without having to spin the wheel more times.
The best outcome is if, when spinning the roulette wheel, it falls on “Prize”: you get the money of the final prize directly. But usually, it falls on + Bonus, making you add more money to the prize. With the three possibilities, you can get to add a lot of money but surely you need extra games.
To get more games, the game page will offer us to browse specific articles or pages for 20 seconds. Then you will have to invite friends to get an extra turn, there is no limit of opportunities so invite as many as you can.
Inviting them is very easy. You will only have to share the link via social media: Instagram, Facebook or Whatsapp. You can also send the link by e-mail, in QR code format or copy the link to share it in forums and other platforms.
It doesn't matter if your friends are already registered on AliExpress. You will be able to help them too. But keep in mind that one person can only help three different people each day. And if, during the 24 hours after the start of the game you have not reached the final prize amount, the game will be restarted.
How to activate and use your coupon up to 200 dollars
Once you have reached the final prize amount, you will be able to claim your discount coupon. If in 24 hours you have not reached the minimum amount, the counter will reset and you will have to start again. If you have already reached it, just enter the promotion and click on the “Get Bonus” button.
This promotion is linked to AliPay so when you request the coupon they will make you pass a security check, which consists of connecting the bank card and confirming the coupon request. The prize amount will be sent to you in one or more coupons.
The coupon can be used for all items in your shopping cart and will be valid for 20 days from the date of activation. After 20 days the coupon will expire and cannot be used.
The discount coupon you will receive is not exchangeable for cash or transferable to another user. If you have any problem with the purchase and you open a dispute, you will be refunded the proportional part you have paid but not the coupon, which is not refundable. Nor will they refund the coupon if you cancel the order before it has been shipped.
Beware of tricks to get your Bonus Buddies prize
The final prize is very interesting, but keep in mind that AliExpress has implemented some measures to prevent people from using them fraudulently.
1. Having other accounts: risk of cancellation
Knowing this, having a second account on AliExpress can be very tempting to get more items. For starters, the platform does not allow to have more than one account per person, so it can block your account if you have the same card linked to another AliExpress account.
2. Foreign credit card
The bonus can also not be activated if the issuing bank of the bank card is not the same as your country of residence, as the bonus is only for certain European countries such as Spain, France, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. It can fail, even if your card is not issued in the same country or district where you are located.
3. Using fraudulent methods to obtain items
Ultimately, AliExpress reserves the right not to give you the coupon or even not to be able to play. The best trick to get your discount coupon is to invite your family and friends: you just need to send them the link and if they click on it, you will get points.
