Weird, that's exactly how much it costs to go to the dentist!

There have been 25 items by Kerig (Search limited from 12-June 20)
I made my first purchase today on Aliexpress, bought two small trinket items. Thought I would use Paypal like most places offer, but they didn't accept that, so I used a credit card that I only use for online purchases.
~6 hours later, my CC company texts me asking about some flagged charge attempts that they declined from doordash. I've never used doordash before, so it couldn't be from them directly.
In 25+ years of having credit cards, this is the very first time I've ever had a fraud attempt requiring the shutting down and reissuing of a CC.
25 years without aliexpress = fine
6 hours with aliexpress = fraud.
I looked it up online, and most people turn a blind eye, blaming computer malware and pretend that it's not aliexpress at fault. I did the aliexpress purchases at work, on a very secure network/computer.
With that said, I want to buy dumb cheap junk on aliexpress, but fool me once rules say no more using a credit card. Any suggestions on a foolproof way to buy from them without trying to have food delivered 2,000 miles away without your consent?
Also looking for confirmation of fraud or no fraud experience with them. Literally the 1st transaction rung my bell. Fortunately my credit card company was somehow smart enough to decline the bad transactions before they were charged. Kudos to Bank of America for letting me buy from China to Middle America, but putting the kibosh on ordering Chinese food from California.
I don't wander throughout the site or post comments much these days, but I still check CAG almost every day to scroll through the twitter feed on the right hand side to see videogamedeals, cheapyd, shipwreck, and wombat posts. I don't use twitter directly unless I'm trying to never win a CAG contest or reply to a compelling post.
Also: I have never missed an episode of the CAGCast from episode 1. It has been my favorite podcast for 10 years longer than I thought the show would exist.
Deals may come and go, but CAG will always be my home...on the internet.
Dragons Crown Pro is an excellent co-op game, so you can play with him.
From my experience over the years, they rarely ever discount season passes. I think that's their scheme, honestly. They discount the games frequently to "hook" you into buying them, knowing that you'll pay full price for a season pass when you're sick of waiting for it to go on sale.
I bought the digital deluxe version of Strange Brigade for $15 instead of the vanilla version for $10. That included the season pass which was well worth it. Funny enough, it's by the same people (Rebellion) not putting the Zombie Army 4 pass on sale.
Guess they just wait longer than most so they don't turn into Ubisoft.
EDIT/UPDATE: I suppose you could say they like selling the complete package cheaper, but not just the season pass to those who know they like the game. I took a chance on Strange Brigade, it's been a ton of fun.
I'm still waiting for Resogun to put their season pass on sale...from 2016.
That sucks. I enjoyed the first game. Guess I wont get this one.
Looks like the sale is live now with the games I've checked so far ending on 4/29, so it's not broken up into two separate halves.
