Ask your question

  • aldi does not have a loyalty card not even the staff has one too. (I did ask) there are things that you can not get there, you do have to go to other supermarkets to get them.
    I have tried comparing the price to low price at coles. Woolworth price is higher than coles price.
    aldi has great stuff to buy and better quality I have seen.
    you can take back products that you are unhappy with, please read your product label to see if they have a logo saying unhappy with product refund allowed.
    sometimes there are some faulty in meat quality and smell. I have taken 2 bags of chicken back before. mince meat- a lot of water pumped in.
    I now shop at coles because its closer to home and has flybuys clocking up. I do know the quality in cans, packets are better than coles.
    I missed out on the aldi cookbook. it would have been a lifesaver on savings. sometimes pinterest helps.
    if you have time, doing research comparing prices from different shops and aldi can save you, coles and woolies have specials, aldi doesn’t.
    once you go through some food at aldi, you will know or have an idea what your children likes.
    happy shopping at aldi and don’t forget to bring your shopping list and bags!

  • Aldi’s great and is just like any other grocery store except you won’t find all the brands/products found in the mainstream grocery stores. You need to take your own bags or purchase theirs and you need to pack your own groceries. They don’t have a loyalty program as their pricing is more competitive. You can buy most staple items there and twice a week they have what they call their best buys. So they may have ski gear, gardening tools, baking items etc.

  • They have all the basics and I find it is good to try what you like and a lot of their items such as biscuits . chocolates , cereals are good quality . I would go early as the Aldi’s in Sydney are crazy here and is always busy , and don’t forget to bring your own bags .

  • A good idea is to stick to your list when shopping at Aldi as there are temptations in middle aisles. Maybe leave a small budget for some temptations?

  • I found the aldi cookbook was awesome but I dont think they sell it anymore. Im sure it might be online. Mainly because i struggle to get everything together for a meal. Although they have become better over the years. The cookbook just made it easier for me. Its also got story about how to feed your family on $50 a week (2 kids 2 adults i think)

  • do they have online click n collect? sounds great!

  • Their party pies are apparently the best on the market I was told & have tried them out & they are delicious!

  • I’ve heard this from people in the know, that the yogurt in Aldi is from the same factory that produces one of the big brands they sell in the big supermarket chains.
    Similar with many other products on offer too.

  • I’m spoilt for choice with Aldi opening within metres of Costco & Coles. I have never been to Aldi prior to this & I was taken back on how small it is. I think if you really want to save on your shopping it is the way to go but in order to save you do forgo quality on some things. It’s really trial & error. I do love their special buys as they have things I haven’t seen in other stores.

  • Aldi sell a wide range of products. I do not know of a rewards card.

  • What I like most about Aldi is that it’s only about four or five aisles, so you get to know where everything is and can do your shopping really quickly.

  • Aldi is good for specials on food but not brand names as in Coles and Woolworths.Also sales on clothing and children’s items etc at certain times.

  • About the rewards card.. I’ve never seen one. But maybe things have changed. I bought in Aldi for the last time 4 years ago.

  • I live in Perth too. By the end of the year one Aldi should open in my area. Really nice!!
    I used to shop in Aldi when I lived in Sydney. The prices were really good. I generally bought cheese there, yogurt, canned fruit and vegetables. And at Christmas time I indulged in the beautiful German sweets like the Stollen with marzipan.
    They also sell articles for the house, stationery items, some clothes.. Always good bargains!

  • Alcohol, meat, veggies, fruit, usual supermarket groceries. Plus they have toys and homewares. These products change regularly and usually sell fast because they’re such good value for money. Best bit is it’s all Australian made products. Not sure about a rewards card
