Aldi insider on how to bag Specialbuy bargains early – like using pre-order tool

Usually when Brits hear of tips and tricks for supermarket shopping they source their info from the workers on the shop floors.

After all, they know when the bargains hit shelves and when prices are reduced.

But, a managing director for Aldi recently revealed some interesting insider secrets that could help you to bag a Specialbuys deal.

Everyone knows that Aldi’s middle aisle is often host to some unusual, or even downright bizarre, items.

Yet every so often we spot something that is perfect for our home, hobbies or bargains for a much lower price than anywhere else.

Julie Ashfield, Aldi managing director, shared some of her top tips for bagging what you want before it sells out with the Sun.

Here’s what she had to say:

Get a bargain before anyone else

Julie said: "Traditionally Specialbuys are found in the middle aisle of Aldi on Thursday and Sunday.

"But my top tip is to pre-order products online – that way shoppers can get their hands on the very latest Specialbuys before their on sale date."

You can often find out what will be in the middle aisle ahead of time on the website here or by picking up a pamphlet in store.

That way you can plan ahead and nab a Specially just as it goes on sale.

Secret sales

There’s a special section on the Aldi website that lets you buy Specialbuys at an even lower price after they’re removed from shelves in store.

So you never have to miss out on your perfect purchase again.

Currently, the reduced Specialbuys section includes Apple Airpods for £99.99, a Rattan Bistro set for £169.99, and even a churro maker for £9.99.

Plus, there's a gorgeous pink velvet shell chair, £89.99, and a kitchen trolley for £34.99.

Bag popular items

The most requested Specialbuy ever was an outdoor log burner from 2019 which Julie says is returning this year.

Popular items such as these fly off the shelves and quickly sell out online too.

We’d recommend googling any item you really like the look out to see wether it’s been a sell out in previous years.

If it made headlines then make sure you pre-order it as soon as the option is made available to avoid missing out.

Julie explained: "Last year, on the day of launch, we saw over 75,000 people queue online to get their hands on the new [Kevin the Carrot] toys.”

Bizarre buys

The managing director also revealed that there are some downright unusual Specialbuys – so never assume Aldi won’t have what you want.

Previously, they’ve stocked everything from egg chairs for cats to horse rising lessons, a hover board, 3D printer and even LED face masks.

And, Aldi once told a £999.99 Scheppach Dumper – that’s a mini motorised truck – as well as £699.99 e-biked and even an £899.99 thermal imager.

So if you’re looking to make an expensive purchase soon give the Specialbuys leaflet a flick through first!
