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 those middle aisle random items, that are what make Aldi special. They can range from car maintenance to homeware and more. The beauty is that you can get them online ahead of their store release, and it means no unnecessary queuing. Having said that, don't be fooled into thinking this is a secret... those Specialbuys can sell super quick, so make sure you're poised on a Sunday morning.

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, so it's worth while heading down for opening time if it's something you really want.
Look out for those price drops in store. Whilst many reductions are rolled out nationwide, managers have the discretion of reducing stock that they have excess of.
Keep your eyes peeled for those bins dotted around the store for clearance items at prices your eyes won't believe.
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.
Here's this week's Super 6 offers is
- Easy Peelers
- Spring Onions
- Mange Tout
- Baby Potatoes
- Thin and Crispy Bacon
- Pork Medallions
- BBQ/Piri Piri Chipolatas
- Chinese Pork Pancakes
- Chicken Drumsticks
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.
Specialbuys appear online before they are available in store, so get in there before anyone else and snap up that to-be-bragged-about bargain!
It's also well worth picking up their Specialbuys Brochure when shopping in store, and if your local Aldi staff are as friendly as mine, then ask them if anything juicy is coming up.
