How To Snag Those Aldi Special Buys Before Anyone Else!

Aldi is a supermarket with a cult following. It's not just because of their quality groceries and low prices, but mainly thanks to the Aldi Specialbuys. Think Jo Malone smell-a-likes, Urban Decay Naked Palette dupes and all of those cut price baby, gardening, homeware, DIY (and more) bargains!

What are Aldi Special Buys?

Aldi Specialbuys are items, ranging from anything like make-up to tools, fitness gear to candles, and more. They may seem random to you, especially when nestled between the egg aisle and frozen foods, but they are limited edition items that are available at great low prices.

Aldi Special Buys Online

How To Snag Those Aldi Special Buys Before Anyone Else!

As you may already know Aldi sell their Specialbuys online as well as in store. Shop online for them and you can not only pre-order them before they hit the stores, but you have access to many "online exclusives" too.

Aldi Special Buys Instore

Aldi Specialbuys hit stores on a Thursday or a Sunday each week. Some Specialbuys can sell out within an hour of opening (Kevin the Carrot), so it's worth while heading down for opening time if it's something you really want.

A positive to picking up Specialbuys in store, is that they often reduce them further, if they need the space for the next range of Specialbuys. I have seen discounts of up to 90% on large items such as travel cots and garden equipment in my local store.

Aldi Offers

Aldi don't tend to do the whole "Buy One Get One Free" offer thing, but they do cut prices across the store weekly.

Each fortnight, you can expect to find a different selection of foods, in the Super 6 Fruit and Veg Deal*, as well as the Super 6 Meat and Fish Deal*. These deals allow you to bag groceries with significant savings.

Note: due to COVID-19, restrictions and availability on these in-store items will be limited.

This week's fresh offers are:

  • Chestnut Mushrooms
  • Butternut Squash
  • Tenderstem Broccoli
  • Chantanay Carrots
  • Savoy Cabbage
  • Mangetout
  • Rump Steak XXL Pack
  • 6 Pack Salmon Fillets
  • Riverway Pork Sausages
  • Seabass and Butters
  • Chicken Mini Fillets
  • Lambs Liver

Aldi Upcoming Special Buys

If you want to be ahead of the game when it comes to Specialbuys at Aldi, then it's worth bookmarking their Specialbuys Coming Soon page*, where you get a sneak peak of what's coming next.

You get the opportunity to pre-order Specialbuys too online, before they are available in store. This is a great way to pick up those items that sell out fast when they hit the shops.

It's also well worth picking up their Specialbuys Brochure when shopping in store, and it doesn't harm to probe the staff either. I have had many a tip-off of what's to come well before I have seen any details elsewhere.
