If you've seen that you have a few AliExpress coins accumulated and you don't quite know what to do with them, in this post we'll explain everything you need to know.
What are AliExpress coins for?
Coins are rewards that AliExpress gives you for completing tasks or making purchases. Once you have a few coins accumulated, you can exchange them for coupons and get discounts on your next purchases.
First, we'll see how to exchange them for coupons and then we will go over all the ways you can use to get them.
How do I redeem my coins for coupons?
To redeem your coins for coupons, you have to log in here.
Every hour there is a new batch of coupons available that you can redeem depending on the coins you have:
- 200 coins = $2 discount
- 300 coins = $3 discount
- 500 coins = $5 discount
- 600 coins = $6 discount
- 700 coins = $7 discount
You can only redeem the coins from the app, so if you enter from the web, when you click on “Redeem coupon”, AliExpress will redirect you to the app.
Keep in mind that these coupons are limited and the ones that run out first are usually the ones with lower value.
We recommend to keep an eye out for the next round in case the coupon you want is currently sold out. Make sure to click on “Redeem coupon” when there's a few seconds left to start the next round.
How can I get more coins?
It's important to note that you can only get coins through the AliExpress app. With that being said, you can get more coins by doing these few things:
- Doing a daily check-in.
- Through AliExpress games.
- With daily tasks proposed by AliExpress.
By checking in daily
On the home page of the app, click on “Coins” (top bar).
On the next window you just have to click on the chest icon at the top right.
You will be able to add coins every day and each day, the amount of coins you get will be higher than the previous one (if one day you forget to check-in, you will have to start the game again).
We recommend you to set a reminder if you're a bit forgetful. You can do so by clicking on your coins (next to the chest icon) and activating the “Daily Reminder to get Coins” tab.
With AliExpress games
There's quite a few AliExpress games you can play to get more coins. We explain some of them below.
To find this game, go to “My Account” and go to “Games”.
This game is one of our favorites when it comes to earning coins quickly: the game costs 5 coins and you can pick up 2 cards each time. You almost always get back the coins invested in the game and you will usually get a few more when you play.
Interestingly enough, you can play up to 10 times a day.
Wheel of Fortune
If you haven't tried AliExpress' Wheel of Fortune, you shouldn't miss it! Apart from coins, you can also win discount coupons (1 ,3 and 50 €) and other very interesting prizes.
The playing rules are a little different from other games: to get a spin in the roulette, you will have to invite one or more friends (who are registered in AliExpress) through a link (you can send it to them via WhatsApp). Then, your friend will have to click on the link to confirm their help.
In addition, they will also receive a coupon or some coins in exchange for their help.
If your friend is a bit lazy, encourage them to play! It will surely pay off and the best thing is that these coupons have no minimum purchase. So if you get the 3 € coupon you can make a free purchase.
No matter how unlucky you are on a roll, you will get at least 100 coins.

Flip ‘n' Win
You can find this game in the “Coins” section of the app (just like the daily tasks).
To play you need to redeem 10 coins, but in exchange you can win items, coupons or more coins.
The mechanism is very simple: click on play and the roulette will stop on the prize automatically (you can spin up to 10 times in 24 h).
Although you can get several prizes, it is not one of our favorites to get quick coins.
To play, click on “My Account” and look for “Games”.
In this game, you will have to take care of a plant by watering it daily until it grows and as it grows you will get rewards such as coupons or coins.
Be careful not to forget about it because otherwise you will lose the game and you will have to start over.
Every 3 hours free water is available so you can water your plant, although you can also get it by doing different tasks.
This game reminds us of the classic “Tamagotchi” when we were kids. Were you able to take care of it without starving it to death? Maybe this game will be a new challenge for you.
AliExpress Daily Tasks
First go to “Coins” and click on “Daily Tasks”.
To get the coins for the daily tasks you will only have to complete the tasks that AliExpress prepares for you (like adding an item to your cart, bookmark something in your favorites list, follow a store,…).
Add items to your cart
During special sales, you can get extra coins by adding items to your cart.
You don't need to buy anything, in fact you can add them and then remove them, but this way you get a lot of coins quickly.
