12 Secrets That Aldi Employees Won’t Tell You
Once you learn these Aldi secrets, you'll want to head straight to the store for some grocery shopping.
Shop on Wednesday for the best deals
To score the best deals on Aldi’s products, visit the store mid-week. On Wednesdays, new products are released and produce goes on sale. But make sure you head there in the morning so you can grab all of your groceries before anyone else. Just be sure you’re picking up all things you should always buy at Aldi.
You won’t find better deals on produce anywhere else
In general, Aldi’s produce is cheaper than other grocery stores—and here are all the reasons why. Avocados have been reported to sell for as low as 39 cents!
Find discounts on baked goods
Bread and other Aldi baked goods go on sale a few days before their expiration date—just look for big stickers on the packaging. That’s still plenty of time to enjoy a loaf of bread, and if you pop it in the oven, the bread will be nearly as good as new!
Don’t like a product? Aldi’s refund policy might just fix that
Aldi’s refund policy is one of the best ones out there. Not only does Aldi give you a refund, but the store also gives you a replacement item if you’re not happy with the quality. Sound too good to be true? Well, we’ve checked it out and confirmed that Aldi really is this fantastic.
Aldi makes going gluten-free easy
If you’re trying to go gluten-free, it can be hard to determine what you can and can’t eat. There are plenty of foods that actually have gluten in them. However, Aldi has their own line of gluten-free products (called liveGfree) so shopping can be simple.
Can’t make it to the store? Aldi delivers!
Aldi is partners with Instacart, so even if you can’t get to the store, you can still buy groceries. You’ll have dinner on the table in no time!
Snag some award-winning wine
Great wine doesn’t need to break the bank. Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé is only $8 and won the International Wine Challenge’s Great Value Award. While you’re at it, pick up one of Aldi’s sangria kits. Although the kits don’t include the wine, you can take your pick from the store’s vast section.
Borrow a quarter for your shopping cart
One thing that makes Aldi unique is their shopping carts. Fans of Aldi know to bring a quarter to use a cart, but if you forget your change, you don’t need to go all the way home. You can ask an employee at the register to borrow a quarter so you can shop.
Get money back by using Checkout51
Checkout51 is a cashback app, which means that you can get cash back when you purchase certain products. Aldi uses this app (available for Apple and Android), so give it a download and get ready to save on all your favorite stuff.
The store donates food
Aldi works to give back to the community. The store partners with Feeding America, so leftover food is donated. Don’t have an Aldi near you? Don’t fret—just find the best supermarket in your state.
