A DEAL expert has revealed his top tips for finding little-known deals at Aldi.
Aldi is known for its low-priced groceries and bargain shopping, but Tom Church, co-founder of latest offerssays there are ways to save even more pennies.
Posting on TikTok, the 31-year-old revealed how he can save up to 75% when shopping at the popular budget supermarket.
Tom has shared his favorite tips and tricks to help you conquer the aisles of the German discount store.
shop on a wednesday
Aldi is known for its low prices, so any day you visit the budget supermarket, you’re likely to find a good deal.
Tom says that a Wednesday is the best day to shop because that’s when all the reduced prices go live.
Prices drop overnight, and shoppers often run to their local Aldi early in the morning for the best deals.
But this is not the only opportunity to get a bargain.
Every two weeks, Aldi carefully selects six products to include in its Super Six offer.
But since the offer is updated every two weeks, buyers only have a short period to take full advantage of the offers until they are changed.
However, you can claim this one in-store or click and collect for an additional £4.99 charge, but you can’t have the discounted products delivered to your door as Aldi doesn’t offer the service.
Watch out for the red stickers
Yellow stickers are the key to a store’s success for most customers, and Aldi also has its own version of tagged deals.
Tom says not many customers know that the stickers are red at Aldi, so they need to be on the lookout if they’re looking for discount food.
He claims you can often save up to 75% on products marked this way at Aldi, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the store.

Aldi discounts other products by 30% if the packaging is also imperfect.
However, what is offered may vary from store to store and will be subject to availability.
Save on “fakes”
We all have our favorite brands that we know and love, so it can be hard to branch out and try something new.
But with the cost of living crisis, many shoppers are looking to find the food they love for less.
While Aldi is known for its scams, like its Cuthbert the Caterpillar cake, Tom says not many shoppers realize that they can also find takeout versions of their favorite food.
Aldi revealed its take on some McDonald’s favorites, including the Big Mac and hash browns for breakfast last year.
The Big Stack, a copy of the Big Mac, is priced at just £1.49 compared to £3.49 at McDonald’s.
And the hash browns come in a pack of 10 for £1.59, while at McDonald’s they’re 89p each.
How else can I save when shopping at Aldi?
Every two weeks, Aldi picks six of its favorites to offer shoppers at low prices.
Right now, for example, you can get cucumbers, apples, pears and tomatoes each for 59 pence a pack.
You can also get oranges and potatoes for as little as 79p a pack in this part of the fortnightly offer.
Each of the fruit and vegetables usually costs 95 pence a pack, so this time shoppers can save up to 36 pence during the limited run.
The prices do not change during the two weeks that the offer is active, so you can really cash out at any time, although what is offered will change every fortnight.
But if you want to make sure you’re getting the best of the bunch, then heading to the store at the start of the week to pick out the freshest items won’t hurt.
What About Aldi’s Non-Food Bites?
Aldi has a great dining deal throughout the week, but what about the other things the thrift store sells in store and online?
Well, that’s easy to answer: You should head to your nearest Aldi on Thursdays or log in on Sundays to take advantage of the best deals on patio furniture, kitchenware, toys and more.
If you want a special item from the nifty center aisle, you should visit the store right after they get new stock.
That means leaving on Thursday morning; otherwise it could be lost.
For online shoppers, it means being online at 8am sharp to get the latest news from Specialbuy.
It really has to be quick, though, as shoppers have been disappointed in the past when popular items like the store’s hanging egg chair sold out in less than an hour.
