If the Special Buys bug has not yet bitten you let me explain what the attraction is all about. More importantly, let’s discuss how to make the most of these Best Kept Secret items and how you can snap up a bargain at fabulously low pricing.

Remember it is under one hundred days until Christmas so… time to shop!

What can you expect from Aldi promotions?

Aldi has a range of special items on a variety of promotions. They do 7 Day Deals on produce which includes fresh meat, fruit, vegies and also delicious products in the fridge.

No doubt the promotion that has most of the attention is their Wednesday and Saturday Special Buys. Beware, the specials are available while stock lasts. More often than not, the doors open to an eager queue of Aldi devotees ready to run in and snap up a deal.

No doubt some of my favourite Special buys categories are;
• home electrical
• homewares
• gardening
• children’s toys and books
• festive occasions (Ocktober fest, Halloween and Christmas to name but a few)

So how do you get in first on the upcoming deals?

When instore at Aldi they will offer you their catalogue with the upcoming specials. There is another way to get the insider information. The die hard Aldi shoppers will tell you that being on the Aldi mailing list will ensure you get the latest and greatest in your inbox. Head to their website to register, it is worth it even if you just find one fabulous deal a year!

What if the item I am after has sold out in my local store?

I was recently at an Aldi Saturday store opening for Channel 9 Weekend Today chatting about the amazing home electrical bargains. One of the items was an amazing 65″ Ultra HD 4k LED TV and it sounded like such a bargain at $799 so I bought it. You do know that I am the Savvy Shopaholic right?

That day there was another fabulous Special buy – a model ship. One of my team was leaving our office and had confided this item was on his wish list. By the time he divulged this desire, days had passed since these fabulous Special Buys had launched. The big question was would I be able to source this item days after it launched?

To my delight, I found that clever Aldi have a fabulous customer service team. They will help you find Special Buy items even when they are sold out in your local store.

I visited a neighbouring store, purchased Tim’s present and felt like I had conquered Everest!

OK Aldi Devotees, I now get it!
