AliExpress: how to find the best prices with the AliPrice extension

If you plan to enjoy Black Friday on AliExpress, the AliPrice extension can help you find the best deals. Available for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera desktop browsers, the add-on lets you view product price history on the official AliExpress website. So, you can know if the promotion is reliable or if the seller has increased the value before to lower it on Black Friday.
