ALDI deals

I’m excited to bring another store to Southern Savers! I shared with you recently how you can actually save more in the grocery store than you can in Aldi, but many of you still want the deals. So starting today we will share the best prices each week.

If your Aldi ad starts on Sunday these deals are already running, if your ad begins on Wednesday then these deals start tomorrow.

Remember that meat, produce and national brand items can be price matched at Walmart and Target. You cannot use coupons at Aldi, but you can when price matched at another store.

      Aldi is my “go to” store many times for fresh fruits and veggies.  I always find a few other things when I do go in.  Thanks for another list of shopping options. 

    • Anonymous

      Thanx for listing Aldi! I wish you would post the cheapest price at other stores on every list and not just pick on aldi though. ;)

      • Guest

        Many times she does :)

        • Anonymous

          she absolutely does, but never so fervently as this aldi list. It’s actually very helpful. It would be useful if it were done as studiously on other lists.

      • Cindy

        I see her list cheaper prices at other stores all the time  :o)

      • She does the same thing for Walmart. I think it’s mostly because of the stereotype that Walmart and Aldi are *always* cheaper. 

        Either way, it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth a trip to multiple stores depending on how much you’ll save. I wouldn’t go to a totally different store just to save 50 cents but if I was already going there, I’d know NOT to pick that up at Aldi.

        Thanks for posting Aldi deals though! Love their produce and meats!

    • Sbmcoupon

      Thanks for adding Aidi!!  They have great deals on fruit and vegetables.

    • CYR

      SSSHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
      I want to keep the aldi produce deals to myself.
      Darn it!  I only make the 70 mile round trip once a week and now they’re gonna be running low…. oh well…. others need the savings too.
      Its a good thing that this blog is so popular it helps so many… but sometimes it does get frustrating for those of us who do have to travel to the store. 

    • Preciousbaby821

      Thank you for adding Aldi! They are a staple in our house. My daughter loves their chicken nuggets and fruit snacks, so I make a trip to Aldi once a month to stock up.

    • Kelseyk112

      Jenny I wish you had Stop and Shop Giant……They have tons of deals too! I don’t believe they go down that far south! Mostly here in Va and Md.

    • Sarah

      Thank you SOO much for adding Aldi!

    • Missthemister

      I LOVE Aldi.  Yes, there are some better deals at the grocery stores, but I see you compare their Grandessa Salsa to Chi-Chi’s.  This $1.69 salsa is AWESOME…they have a garlic artichoke flavor that I use all the time for dip and cooking.  A salsa of this type at Kroger or Publix would probably be $3 or  $4.  I get most of my produce and my eggs here because the price is the best, but they have some items I just plain like better than what I get in the other stores at great prices.  I especially love the Fit & Active Mango drink.  0 calories, cheap, tastes GREAT.  Thanks for adding Aldi!

      • Asteff

        I agree that their salsa is way better! I’ve never found a matching quality in any store.

    • Diane Lyles

      This is great! Thanks for adding Aldi… one of my new favorite stores!

    • Anonymous

      $1.69 / lb for chicken is as good as Zaycon without the mess.  I am going tomorrow!!!

    • CJ

      Does anyone know if it’s boneless, skinless chicken breasts? Thx!

      • Loni

        Yes they are…in PA at least.

        • Tinalaynesmile

          Wed only though.

    • Loni

      I just picked up a 3lb bag of Cuties (clementines) for $1.69…actually I bought 2 bags….my kids LOVE them.  Thanks for adding Aldi.  I’m in PA so I’m curious if our prices will be the same or if their prices are regional…I’ll keep watching.

    • Glysergt

      how do you price match fruits and vegetables from aldi’s at walmart if their prices for those aren’t in the ad most of the time?

      • Lorrose57

        the paper that comes out in the local shopping guide has the produce prices, and you can print their ad on their website

      • You would only be able to price the produce in the ad. So, if Broccoli bushels are $0.99 at Aldi but they are not posted in the ad, then you can’t price-match.

    • Guest

      Thanks Jenny! Your site is such a help. I guess I’m lucky to live an an area where we have a lot of choices. I have a Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo, Lowes Food, ALDI, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Target, and Food Lion (Yuk) all within 5 miles of my house so I can go to whomever has the best prices and your lists help me compare. We also have Trader Joe’s, Earthfare, BJ’s, Costco, and Sam’s Club just a little further away and we’re getting a new Publix at the end of the year. Any chance you can do a list for Trader Joe’s in the future? I usually get my banana’s at Trader Joe’s for $.19 each. What does ALDI charge for banana’s I haven’t checked them out yet but I guess I need to.

      • Yazpistachio

        You sound like you live in the Charlotte area. . .

        Our Aldi’s here charge 44cents/pound for bananas.

        • Guest

          Thanks for the price on Bananas. Your right Charlotte area, just over the state line in Fort Mill South Carolina so I get the cheaper gas also :)

          • Guest

            I live in Tega Cay.  I was going to say that it sounds like you live in Fort Mill.  We are so blessed to have so  many shopping options, especially considering that when I moved here we had to go to Charlotte or Rock Hill to go shopping.  Too bad Food Lion couldn’t get with the program.  I used to shop there all the time until Jenny taught me otherwise!

            • Guest

              Yes the options have expanded since I moved here also, thankfully. Looking forward to see what options Publix offers and I hear they will be doing improvements to our Harris Teeter to compete with the new Publix. All good for us. Also looking forward to check out Whole Foods when it comes to Southpark area. We certainly have choices.

            • Yazpistachio

              I know! I wonder when they’ll get on the ball with Publix. It seems like we’ve been waiting forever!

            • Guest

              They are working on the site for Publix @ Tega Cay at corner of Gold Hill Rd and Pleasant Rd.. land is cleared and they are putting in the infrastructure. Crews are there every day. Sign says late 2012.

      I’ve just recently added Aldi to my list of stores; usually, HT gets the bulk of our shopping budget because I can do so well there with doubles / SDs / Triples. However, the produce is awesome and they’ve got milk for $1.99 – awesome since my kids inhale the stuff. Also, I bought nuggets at Aldi and chicken strips at HT. Guess which ones my husband preferred? LOL.

      • Guest

        Milk is $3.49 at our Aldi – the same price as at Harris Teeter..  I wish it was $1.99.  That would be AWESOME!

    • Grocerys4us

      I made my first trip to Aldi’s yesterday. I had only been in an Aldi’s once in FL  when visiting my daughter. We had discovered that their brand of French Vanilla coffee creamer is so much cheaper than International Creamer. My
      “set-in-his-ways” husband loved the flavor and texture of Aldi’s brand.

      I also found some beautiful artisan lettuce and their hearts of romaine was also very reasonably priced.

      Sadly, the local store had greenish strawberries. As strawberries do not continue ripening after picking, I wasn’t sure about buying them.

      I appreciate the other posts as I like to try new items. The salsa sounds delicious!

    • valpal

      Thanks for adding aldi! I go here for many staples when I can’t find them on sale at a grocery store. I’d like to add that they have frozen ground turkey for $1.50 a pound.

    • beme2004

      This is good to know. I may just have to check them out. Jenny….would you ever consider doing the Piggly Wiggly ad?

      • I get lots of requests for it and I wish I could. The thing is that all of their stores are individually owned & operated so the ads are highly regional. It would be impossible for me type up the deals for everyone to use & would just cause a lot of frustration.  Best advice is to use the coupon database to look for coupons that go with your local store’s ad. Sorry :(

        • amanda

          Save-a-lot is another store like Aldi but they take coupons.  I know they are in TN but not sure how many other states.  They have bags and buggies but when I was a child they did not and had boxes at the door for people to use.  They have come a long way and take credit cards.

        • beme2004

          Thanks for the reply Jenny. I completely understand why Piggly Wiggly isn’t on the list. I don’t even know how you can manage all the ones you do figure out for us. I can imagine the hard work you put into it and it is so very much greatly appreciated!! Thank You!

    • 5higgins

      I will be price matching the cantaloupe, strawberries and pineapple at my walmart this friday!  I have done it several times now, I always bring the ad with me even though walmart says you don’t need it.  WM pineapples are usually $3 so 99c is awesome!  If you haven’t done it, you should try.  The produce is easy to match!

      • Paige

        And, usually the pineapples are Walmart are huge!!  They are usually double the size of my Aldi pineapples.

      • CR

        My walmart (birmingham area) REFUSES to accept Aldi as a competitor!  Imagine, Walmart being difficult!

      • CYR

        The wal mart in Gainesville GA will NOT price match to aldi per customer service when I asked.  FYI anyone who lives in that area…

    • pennywiseinasheville

      Aldi brand potatoe chips are really good too, at 1.39 per bag as opposed to the Lay’s at over 4.00, guess where I get our chips? ;)

      • Guest

        I picked up a bag of their corn chips, like Fritos, today.  They are great and taste just like the real thing!  Much cheaper too!  I’ll have to try their potato chips.

    • Anonymous

      Aldi’s is a great store for so many reasons! I am glad you added it and I know others will be too. I think it should be noted that they have a “Double Guarantee” policy where if you don’t like the product(s) you bought, bring it in and not only will you receive a replacement but you will also receive back the full paid price! *The Double Guarantee does not apply to non-food Special Buy items and alcohol.

      I have to say that I have not ever had to use this guarantee because I’ve never had a bad experience worth complaining about. I have had several worth praising though! :D

    • Paige

      I just went today to get some produce and frozen veggies. Yes, the variety is not as much as other stores, but I got 8 oz baby bellas mushrooms for .79 and 1 lb of carrots (not baby) for .79, my bananas always for .44 a lb.  The 16 oz veggies, corn, california medley, green beans for .99 ( I never buy enough on the sales at other stores) and micro steam 12 oz. broccoli for 1.09.  Strawberries, 1 qt for 1.69, blueberries, half pint for 1.99. A large Fage greek yogurt for 1.99 too. Overall, very pleased.  I kind of like that there is not such a huge variety and our Aldi is so busy, I rarely have problems with “yucky” produce or veggies. Happy shopping!

    • GUEST

      Thank you! Aldi is one of my favorite grocery stores! I do most of my shopping there! Sure, some things I can find cheaper at other stores when there’s a sale and with coupons but many of the items I get never have coupons and it’s much cheaper to get them at aldi!

    • Emily

      Has anyone had success with walmart price matching Aldi’s produce? I’ve never tried and I’m nervous to in case they give me a hard time.

      • Janet

        Hi Emily,
        I match Aldi prices at Walmart almost weekly.  I usually use the “competitor” price on produce and sometimes meat from the Aldi flyer.  The Walmart cashiers are mostly familar with Aldi and do not think twice after looking at the ads.  Good luck!

      • grace

        Emily, I do it ALL the time, especially with their pineapple and Walmart is quick to match it!!

      • rascal15

        I match them at walmart every week.

      • Jbpersson

        I’m wondering the same thing. Will they take a print out from the computer? I’ve never seen an ad so don’t know what else to take in….

    • alison v.

      …AND THEY DON’T TAKE CREDIT CARDS!  that was an embarrassing trip!

      • tryn2sav

        Whew! I know what you mean, It happened to me one day also. And that was all I had was a credit card.

      • Laura J

        I think they are probably used to it, but I cant think of a way to let people know about the no credit cards.

      • Freedomspradley1

        They do accept debit cards and checks which most people carry.  I believe most credit card machines charge the stores around 6 cents per dollar charged.  Aldi does everything they can to keep the prices down including requiring a quarter to unlock the cart (but you get your quarter back when you return the cart) and not providing paper/plastic bags (cost $0.05-.10 each at checkout but I usually bring my own bags).

    • Tarac98

      Thanks for adding this Jenny!!! have you ever thought of adding Hitchcocks? Its one of the two stores in florida that actually doubles…Thanks for all you do!

      • Laura J

        Wait, you just said there are 2!!! stores in Florida that double!!! What is the other?!!!

    • Patty

      Thanks, Jenny.  Publix and Aldi are just a couple of miles from each other in my neighborhood.  I shop at Aldi for produce items most of the time.  Because Aldi is constantly getting stock in, the produce never sits there for long.  Over the holidays, a couple of the ladies shopping there and I were in absolutely astounded to see that a full head of cauliflower was marked as only 0.50 and so was a package of broccoli crowns.  I have only returned one product item.  That was pears and it was only because I found them to be tasteless and needed to use them in a holiday recipe but that can happen anywhere.

    • Benandhansmom

      I love Aldi.  Great prices without having to clip coupons or run around to many different stores trying to get deals.

    • Lorrose57

      Love ALDI for produce and marked downs..  the frozen thin green beans are their best item…

    • Barb

      I think it’s hard to compare Aldi to a regular grocery because even Aldi admits most people will not be able to fill all their grocery needs there.

      I would be REALLY upset if I no longer had Aldi nearby. Many of their products exceed the quality of brand name and stay the same price long-term. For instance, their southern breaded chicken fillets have been $4.98 for a 2lb bag as long as I can remember. I’m not sure I can consistently beat $2.50/lb for flavorful chicken (way better than Tyson breaded chicken patties) that can be thrown into the oven for a quick meal.

      Their chocolate is better than any national brand.

      Their imported products are delicious as well.

      Their Tandil detergent is actually Tide and has been $6.99/100 oz forever. That’s like being able to buy Tide at $3.50 bottle all the time.

      I understand it’s a better deal to get name brands on sale/with coupon. But sometimes it’s a great deal of work.

      • Seeshellnc

        I “found” Aldi’s quite recently as Im new to NC and I really like the store for certain things.  Im wondering…. how do you know their detergent is actually Tide???    Thats 1 thing I ALWAYS buy (dont buy other detergents?.  Thank you!

        • PamAlabam

          I’ve heard that about Tandil being Tide.  Can’t prove it but it does a good job on our laundry and we get some tough stains.  Someone else told me their canned soup is Campbell’s. When a case of soup was opened, it had Campbells instead of Aldi brand in it.

      • I am surprised to read that some think Aldi’s detergent is Tide.  I thought P&G had a hard rule to NEVER do any private label business because it erodes their branded business.  Could it be that it is just Tide like?

    • C_hakes

      Before I started couponing and using Southern Savers, I shopped at Aldi all the time.  I have cut way back because I can do much better using coupons. Their milk, eggs and come cheese are cheaper at Aldi’s.  Just do your research and you can come out way ahead shopping Aldis and other stores using coupons.  I would be lost with out this website.  Jenny rocks!!  :)

      • Del

        What is come cheese?

        • Guest

          Maybe they meant “some” cheese.

        • C_hakes

          Yes that was “some” cheese.  Sorry.

    • Laura J

      As far as milk goes around here, Aldi is the cheapest  EXCEPT when I can find the milk at BiLo that is has the red tags due to it is about to expire soon.  I know some people are very picky about the date, but we drink a gallon a day with my oversize family, so it still is gone before the date.  As far as produce, I have started to go only to Aldi to get it and I rarely look at the other stores.  They are almost always the cheapest and if not they are so close that it is not worth my time to go somewhere else.

    • carmen

      I LOVE Aldi!! I usually do my main weekly grocery/couponing trip at HT but some things I only buy at Aldi because it’s cheaper AND better, like chocolate, parmesan cheese, frozen green beans, corn and peas, baby wipes, tomato sauce, etc. Even the Winking Owl Cabernet Sauvignon at 2.99 is awesome!!

    • Kcgardner

      Love Aldis, (especially when less than 1/4 mile from my house! Produce is such a good deal there! so excited about chicken tomorrow! woot!

    • Love at Aldi’s:

      Trail mix in the plastic jar with the screw top-I keep the nut and raisin/cranberry one in the car for a quick snack while shopping for all the deals at different stores and stay out of convenience that way. :)

      German bread, whole grain pumpernickel, rye, sunflower seed, etc. that has a good shelf life and is under $2.  Oyster crackers, nuts, etc. are cheaper at Aldi’s.  I like their marshmellows better than the Kraft ones.  Aldi’s taste the way marshmellows used to taste and Kraft’s taste funny now.

      Carrots and celery are usually cheaper than Kroger’s. Sometimes berries.  Romaine lettuce hearts for $1.99/3 pack.

      Special deals and some of the cookies; some  of the butter/chocolate cookies are the equivalent of the expensive imported ones at Kroger’s

      Did not like: bbq potato chips or sweet potato chips or Cheez it type crackers.  Easy returns, though.

    • MK

      The Hormel Turkey Pepperoni is not printed in our actual ad but listed on Aldi’s
      website under Special Buys. Do you know if WalMart will still price match it?

    • Ginamity

      Aldi is a great place for certain staple items.  Milk, eggs, butter, (they had cream cheese for $.87 during christmas).  Their Fit & Lively brand fiber bars are the same as Fiber One – delicious. The devil’s food cookies are just like Snackwell’s.  DO NOT get the juice that they compare to V8 Fusion… it is disgusting. 

    • Guest

      Well I went to ADLI for the 1st time. I guess I’ll have to give it more than 1 try but I was disappointed on this visit. Milk was $3.49/gal not $1.99 like some said. I really went for the produce, granted it’s not prime produce season but the .99 cantaloupes were VERY small and VERY green. Pineapple was also small. Celery was similar price to elsewhere. They did have a bag of potatoes that looked good but didn’t need potatoes. This is the season where I’m looking for good prices on produce since most of the year I get it locally from our various Farmer’s Markets. I still think I can do better using coupons and it doesn’t take me long to cut the coupons I need from the  Sunday paper or print the ones I need but I don’t have a large family. I think the prices and produce quality must vary by location/region.

      • Daberson77

        There produce can vary a lot from store to store and sometimes even in the same store …yes a lot of times the pineapples are small but for .99¢ thats ok with me …i drive by an aldi 5days a week so I run and by what looks good and is cheap …i love them for produce eventhough it can be hit or miss …luckly the one I go by is busy so their produce is fresh

      • Reynoldsja

        I have gotten the pineapples there and the very first time thought wow, these are kinda small and green.  I waited a couple of days.  They were still a little green, but soft so I went ahead and cut into them.  They were some of the best pineapple I have ever eaten!  I have to try to hit our Aldi right after the paper comes out because they run out quickly!

    • Ashley

      I am new to posting on this website but the Aldi brand coffee and creamer is also fantastic! I gave the “donut house” version a try and it’s very similar to Dunkin Donuts coffee and for $1.49 a bag you can’t beat it! French vanilla creamer is every bit as good as international delight. Also their frozen berries are a great deal and substantially cheaper than any competitors. Frozen chicken prices are always competitive and only beat in my opinion when Winn Dixie has BOGO on their meat/chicken. Thanks for adding in ALDI! 

    • Amynycol

      Does anyone know if this is correct?  I can’t find it in my ad.  Was wondering if it was worth my drive over there. Thanks

      I love Aldi’s.  They have very high-quality items, not like other discount stores.

    • Anonymous

      Can anyone comment if their frozen chicken is good? $1.69 if a great price. 

    • rascal15

      Just left my local Walmart 634 Camden, S.C. , and they no longer will match ALDI’s ADS. I have already put in a call to 1-800 walmart, they promised to resolve the issue within 3 Business days. They said at the store that Aldi’s was a warehouse. I told them to take their ads off TV, they will match any competitors Ad, because it is a lie. I will advise when I get an answer.

      • rascal15

        I got a call from Walmart, stating that they will honor all Aldi’s Ads. Looks like I just needed a little OIL on my wheel.

    • Taniayaris

      Tried Aldi’s last week for the first time and loved it.  No you can’t get everything you might need but defiantly most things.  The strawberries were deliciously sweet and cheep I have never found them this good especially not as cheep as $ .99.  Pears were great too!  I really like this store for goodies for my kids and my husbands cookie loving sweet tooth.  The snacks and chips are cheeper and taste just as good as leading brands.  Milk is cheeper at Aldi’s too.  Plus it’s worth going there to get your needed deals because the store is so small it won’t take you long to do so.

    • busymom2

      Thanks Jenny for adding Aldi, I do not get thier ad where I live but I go right by an Aldi at least 3-4xs a week. I was pleasantly surprised after reading everyones posts and I decided to try Aldi this week. Its now my favorite back up behind Publix, the price and quality was great. I bought the store’s fresh pizzas(4.99),oranges $1 a bag, the artichoke salsa someone recommended, strawberries(.99) All of the items were excellent quality and now I am hooked.
      Thanks everyone for your posts….
