If you love an ALDI Special Buy - and let’s be honest, who doesn’t - here’s how to never miss out on what you’re after again.
If you’re an avid ALDI's weekly Special Buys shopper, you’ll know you usually have to line up before 8:30am in order to make sure you bag your bargain.
If you miss out at one particular store, driving around to other stores to search out what you're after is the next best option. But not anymore!
One mum has shared her genius hack for knowing exactly how much stock is left in each store within a 20km radius to where you are.
Sharing her find to the ALDI Mums Facebook group, she revealed her secret tip to always finding her Special Buy products.
“Not sure if any of you know, but if you message ALDI on Facebook and type 'Get Started' it'll bring up a few weeks of special buy catalogue dates,” she wrote.
“Just click what you want and type your post code it'll see if any stores within 20km have stock!
"Managed to get some goodies I couldn't find a few weeks back!"
Other Aldi fans in the group shared their surprise and delight at learning this handy trick, with most users saying they had ‘no idea’.
"Love it, I checked with this function and got something I wanted today," one user commented on her post.
"That’s a great idea, I used it and went to the store where stock was available," another added.
While it may not be a well-known feature that Aldi offers, they do mention it on their website. Simply click on the "Check Stock Availability" section and it explains how the function works.
They even share this video on how to use the function.
"We want to save you time. That’s why we’ve created a chatbot that checks Special Buys stock availability,” it says on the website.
"To get started, open a chat with ALDI Australia on Facebook. Choose an On Sale date from the past 6 weeks, the theme, your desired product and provide your postcode. We’ll let you know if an ALDI store within 20km of your location had any stock as of the night before."
Well it looks like shopping at ALDI just got a whole lot easier!
