Might be worth mentioning that it's from Anker themselves in case people see Alliexpress in the title and are worried about fakes. Looks a good price, especially with the first order promotion

Cheaper than their last lightning deal. Definitely no concern from ordering from AE as said above.

Good find!

Site is a little wierd to enter details. Clicked add to cart, clicked place order to think I'll have to add card details on next page and it just said order placed?!

Just for info, £26.41p via the app.

So what makes this better than the other Soundcore?

I'd rather buy from Amazon.

It all hinges on how much you think a warranty is worth.

Also FYI on a new account, with voucher, goes through at £22.63.

At roughly twice the price though? Even on a Lightning deal you'd have to pay around 40% more than this.

Where is the $5 voucher? I saw the 'Join us today and we'll give you up to $4 in coupons' and then 'Click to win coupons'.

Nothing under 'My Coupons'
???

6% cashback from QuidCo too.

Does this ship from outside the EU and so will attract import VAT and shipping carrier payment processing fee’s?

I don't know exactly what it was I did. My account wasn't new, but I had never placed an order before, then just signed up to email list now, but not sure if that added coupons or not. In coupons I had $4 off $5 (greyed out), $5 off $25 (and off $50, $100), and $25 off $150 coupons.

Plus an extra 1% discount for using the app.

Just tried again totally from scratch and the only coupon I have this time is $5 off $50, which is no use for this. Is it random?

As someone else mentions, it's a weird, awkward site - so that doesn't surprise me. Looks like it was maybe specific to the app. I used the website. Never mind, still a good price.

Was tempted yesterday but didn’t get round to it, was thinking the same as you but don’t think it’s worth the risk, adding the Royal Mail fee alone takes it to the amazon offer prices.

Keep your order below £15 and you shouldn't pay any tax

The thorn in many China shoppers' bed of roses is the customs charges. This is another reason why AliExpress is best for small, cheap bits. Buy goodies under £15 and you shouldn't pay any VAT, customs or Royal Mail handling charges.

What you pay depends on the item's value, but an easy rule of thumb is that above £15, customs, delivery and VAT charges can add around 30-40% to the list price. So first ensure you know what you'll pay – the pricier the item, the bigger the fees.

  • 20% VAT. Buy goods worth more than £15 online from non-EU e-tailers and you need to pay 20% VAT. This is calculated based on the total package cost, regardless of how many items are in it. It's charged on the full price of the package, not just the value that exceeds the £15 limit.
  • Customs duty. On top of that, customs duty applies to items shipped from outside the EU if they're above £135 (unless the duty comes to less than £7, when it's waived). The duty rate depends on where they came from.

    There are about 16,500 custom duty classifications for products, with average percentages between 5% and 9% on the kind of item being bought or imported. However, customs duty can sometimes be as low as 0% or as high as 71%, depending on the goods in question.
  • £8 Royal Mail handling fee. On top of this, Royal Mail charges an £8 fee if you need to pay charges. (Fees vary for other couriers.)

It's very hit and miss though, and depends on many variables. I've not ordered much, maybe only a couple of dozen items over £15 and out of those I've only been hit twice for any fee whatsoever. And, the fee I was required to pay was very minimal being around £2.50 ish and both times it was payable to the carrier (in these cases both DHL).

One item cost £20 the other £160, so I don't know what the charge was made up by, it was just labeled a handling fee.

do you factor in currency conversion rate when purchasing via ali? I noted i get charged on my credit cards a fee

Anyone received theres yet? Were you charged customs? And also how's the speaker?

This is direct from Anker so you get a warranty



But is it? There are plenty of instances on AE where so-called 'official stores' are nothing of the sort. But my post was actually suggesting paying the extra from Amazon for the warranty was actually NOT worth it. I'm a very frequent buyer direct from China...

Yes, it is. Initially I wasn't sure either, but I checked the Anker website and they have a link to all their official outlets. This is the only official Anker direct shop on Aliexpress.

Here's the page - anker.com/whe…buy

And, sorry I misunderstood your meaning
