AliExpress

Anybody else using this?

It's like a cross between Amazon and Ebay with a bit of suspense thrown in because the things are shipping from China. Actually, it's mostly like Amazon, for a lot cheaper, because the stuff is new, but you have to be patient and confident because you might see your item in a week or maybe two months.

I bought a tent from AliExpress. Good deal. Nice tent. Under $100 (shipped) for something that would be $400 if bought from a US outfitter.

I was just looking at cheap watches because I want to leave my Fitbit at home when I go on a long hike later, and see that my Fitbit, which costs $150, has a very close competitor that actually has more features for $30. I wound up finding a cheap Casio style watch for $1.50 instead of $10 on Amazon.

If you are patient, they have pretty much anything you might want for pretty low prices.
