Customers love Aldi for its many affordable items that often rival big name-brand products in terms of quality. It's no secret that the discount grocery chain seems to prioritize customer satisfaction, both through its low-price products and the attentiveness of the staff. For instance, you may be able to score a deal on an item simply by speaking with a manager at the chain.

If you find a product you love, but would love to get at a cheaper price, locate the nearest manager and inquire about when the item will be on sale. In some cases, managers are more than happy to reduce the price of the product right there and then, as opposed to making you wait until it's officially on sale. It must be said that not all managers will reduce the price of a product when asked. Accordingly, don't be too surprised if your request is denied. In this case, you can save money on much of Aldi's inventory by using alternate methods.

Planning your shopping trip is always a good idea, especially when it comes to saving money. For example, checking out Aldi's weekly ads on the German-based grocery chain's website allows you to see which items are currently most affordable. The weekly ads feature all kinds of goods, including meat, fruits, vegetables, bread, dairy products, and beverages, as well as housewares and décor. To keep up to date, shoppers can check each week to see what new items are available for a notable discount.

If you want to be ahead of the pack when it comes to new specials each week, consider signing up for the chain's weekly emails. You'll automatically receive a listing of the weekly deals right in your inbox, which means you won't miss out on popular items. Similarly, visiting the store on Wednesday can also help you find significant deals on high-quality items. Some even consider it the best day of the week to shop at Aldi, as Wednesday is when the grocer restocks its shelves.

Other Ways To Save On Groceries

Because Aldi is so invested in customer service, the chain offers lots of ways to give back to shoppers. Take its price adjustment policy, for instance. In the event you purchase an Aldi Finds product (meaning the weekly listing of items available at more affordable prices) and the price for the product is reduced within 14 days of purchase, you can return it to the store with your receipt and the manager will provide you with the difference. Keep in mind that only Aldi Finds are eligible for price adjustment.

Because much of the store consists of private-label products, Aldi is able to offer quality goods at a much less expensive price than you'd find with name brand items. Additionally, Aldi also offers shoppers a Twice as Nice Guarantee in the event a product doesn't meet your expectations. If you bring the product back, Aldi will refund your money while also replacing the item with one of equal value. Aldi seems to go above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction, and its numerous great deals are evidence of that commitment.
