AliExpress has currently improved and modernized its member program that already worked within the platform, with the purpose of rewarding its loyal buyers and hooking future customers, improving the quality of services and the benefits obtained for frequent purchases.
Previously, the point accumulation system was based solely on the number of annual purchases.
The previous program offered a total of 5 levels, with the lowest positions (Level A0 and A1) being the amount of 0 to 100 points, and the highest (Level 4A) being the amount equal to or greater than 2,000 points.
What is an AliExpress membership? How does it work? What levels does it have?
As a result of the latest configurations, it’s a system that works on the basis of collected points. To participate, all you have to do is register. Once you start shopping and interacting daily through the portal, you’ll accumulate more points.
This program consists of 4 levels and unlike the previous system, it’ll be much easier to reach and maintain the maximum level by reducing the number of points accumulated and increasing the ways to get extra points.
What are the benefits of each level?
Depending on what your position is, you’ll have different benefits. Some of them are:
- Silver Member: You’ll get 5% discounts on weekly top brands, birthday, and registration anniversary coupons.
- Gold Member: You’ll get discounts of up to 8% on weekly top brands, birthday coupons, and registration anniversary coupons.
- Platinum Member: You’ll receive 10% discounts on weekly top brands, birthday and registration anniversary coupons, event benefits, and fast cash back.
- Diamond Member: You’ll earn 25% discounts on weekly top brands, limited daily coupons, event benefits, fast refunds, and birthday and registration anniversary coupons.
What does each benefit consist of?
We’ll give you a brief explanation of each benefit, depending on your membership level:
Weekly Top Brands
Every week, AliExpress will choose a featured brand, and depending on your membership level, you’ll have more discount opportunities.
This benefit is only available to members of higher ranks. They can claim faster refunds on purchases of $25 (platinum members) and $100 (diamond members).
Registration Anniversary Coupon
Every time you reach a new year of AliExpress membership, you’ll get a personalized message and various coupons for discounts. Available for all membership levels.
Just on your birthday, you’ll receive a personalized message, as well as special discounts on items from top brands on the website. For this, you must have your date of birth updated.
During big discount festivals such as 11.11, and Christmas, among other sales times of the year, you can have exclusive prices on selected items.
How to earn points and level up?
Regarding the member rank, this modality collects your accumulated scores throughout 12 months, during the whole year, and at the end of each month, it makes a count and is updated. This means that, if in the last month you haven’t made any purchases, and you were totally inactive, you have to consider that your position will probably go down.
Getting points without so much effort, with this new mechanism, is possible and very easy! It can be done in several ways, among them:
On this platform, you earn 5 points for each successful purchase you make of $2 or more. But, if you present a problem and return the item, the transaction will be considered fraudulent, therefore you’ll lose any points accumulated so far.
At AliExpress, they value the loyalty and preference of all their users. That is why they award 1 point for each review you make of your products received and 1 point for visiting the portal daily.
You can accumulate up to a maximum of 10 points per month.
You get this bonus every time the website offers promotions or discounts on special days such as 11.11, Christmas, and other sales periods.
Not only that, but you also get bonus points for:
- Buying items from different categories on the same day (1 point).
- For posting in the AliExpress Club (you will receive 2 points and can accumulate up to a maximum of 10 points per month).
Keep in mind that having a good membership level gives you access to benefits throughout the year!
AliExpress’ membership level: How to know it?
Once you’ve become a registered user of the platform, the steps to follow to check your membership status are as follows:
- Log in to the portal and enter your account login information.
- Once inside, go to the “My Account” section.
- Then, click on the tab that says “Member Center”.
And that’s it!
If you’re accessing it from your smartphone, go to the My Account > Partner Program section.
Is there any way to lose all the accumulated points?
If you’re already a maximum level holder, but you haven’t had any interaction with the platform for quite some time (and this great feat was achieved more than 12 months ago), surely all the accumulated points will gradually disappear from your total.
You may end up dropping in rank until you reach the minimum. The best way to prevent this from happening is to shop frequently on AliExpress.
It’s understandable that this “membership” and benefits program is mainly aimed at those customers who usually shop online. If this is your case, take advantage of the benefits and get benefits for the frequency of your transactions.
