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 School Uniform Specialbuys 2020
Waiting for news of the Aldi Back To School Event? With a bit of detective work we can bring you the date for your diary before anyone else! Aldi's Back To School Specialbuys*will be online on Sunday 9th August, and in stores on Thursday 13th August 2020. Prices have yet to be revealed, though we do know that the School Uniform Bundle will be back, and hopefully around that £5 price again!
Here's a sneak peek at what's coming in Aldi's Back To School Event 2020:
For the past few years Aldi have sold a School Uniform Bundle for under £5*and it will be returning for 2020 once more, though the price has yet to be confirmed. This year's Aldi Back To School Event is almost a month later than it usually starts, and in 2019 it was 11th July, which we believe is due to manufacturing and distribution delays following the Coronavirus pandemic.

Aldi Special Buys Gardening
Aldi has an online Garden Shop*that opened on Sunday 29th March 2020. You can find offers on plant pots, power tools, greenhouses, lawn care and more all summer long, plus extra new Specialbuys released throughout the season.
Aldi Special Buys Online
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 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:
- Iceberg Lettuce
- Shredded Kale
- Mixed Chilli Peppers
- Beef Tomato
- Chicken Fillets
- Hot Smoked Salmon Fishcakes
- Chicken Drumsticks
- BBQ Pork Fillet
- British Wagyu Burgers
- Cajun Beef Sizzle Steak
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.
