Yes, that is the one I'm planning on getting. Eternal Team & HongKong Goldway seem to be most reliable resellers from what I've seen. Eternal Team will likely be one of the cheapest tomorrow :). Hopefully I can stack a bunch of coupons as well.

Either in the app (you get coins, and exchange for coupons), or through the 11.11 homepage, you're looking for the "Select Coupons".

DHL. My order (free shipping) is still in limbo after it arrived in BC on Oct 18. Canada Post has no update since it picked up the package and numerous call and even submitted a ticket, they still have no clue where my phone is :(

I'm surprised people are so caught up with NFC. I personally thought NFC was neat when it first came out, but never use it. To each their own i suppose.
You should use it.

I've never bought anything from ali express before. If I choose DHL, do they charge on top of customs fees and such, or is the price I'm paying on the site all inclusive? Also I'm assuming if there is ever an issue, I need to ship it back to China.

Based on what I've seen there's usually a ~$25 customs charge.

I just ordered mine and this is what they sent me....
Since you chose DHL shipping, a customs declaration needs to be completed. As a result, here are a few things we need to let you know in advance.

1. There is 95% that you will need to pay customs tax.
2. Normally we declare a value of $45 for each cellphone and list it as a cellphone. We declare the full value for orders (total amount including freight) when we ship to Belarus, Israel, Chile, Portugal, South Korea, Greece.
3. If you have any special requirements, please reply to us within 24 hours. If we do not hear from you, we will make the declaration as listed above. If any additional taxes or charges are applied, you will need to pay these. Please note that DHL will not ship if the declared value is less than $30 for each phone.
4. When shipped to America, Singapore and Australia, the odds of being charged tax is very low, but still possible.
5. When shipped to United Kingdom, the customs office requests a full declaration of value and the recipient name. This is done because customs will check the transaction screenshot.

We sincerely hope that you do not consider any additional import costs or customs clearance delays as a reason for requesting a refund or leaving negative feedback./:022

I got the same form letter/message. I bought mine from Eternal Team on the 3rd but just got a text from DHL this morning that it left Hong Kong.

When you get your email with the tracking number, log into your ali account and check to see if the tracking number in there matches the one in the email. Mine did not which caused me a bit of confusion for a few days. It does have the tracking number in the email listed, but it's crossed out and another one was generated for some reason.
