ALDI is our family’s favorite low-cost grocery store, and I have found a way to make it, even more, cost effective.
This is one way that I think some ALDI customers are overlooking and it could add up to several dollars saved each week.
One Way To Save Money At ALDI That Is Often Overlooked
ALDI shoppers know that ALDI doesn’t take manufacturer’s coupons, but some ALDI shoppers are missing out on a way to use a different type of coupons at ALDI.
Did you know that you can use coupon apps to claim rebates on products you buy at ALDI? These coupon apps allow you to bank your rebates until they hit certain cash out totals at which you can then get your money either in the form of a rebate check or a gift card.
You need to look for coupon apps that are not store specific and offer rebates on nonbrand specific grocery items like, bread, milk, and vegetables.
Here are Three Coupon Apps That Can Help You Save Money At ALDI
Checkout 51: With Checkout 51 new deals are listed every Thursday morning and they are limited in number. I tend to not even look at the offers until after I have already finished my ALDI shopping. That way I am not tempted to buy an item that I don’t need just because I save an additional .50 cents. Still, most weeks I have been able to cash out at least one or two rebates. Cash out is at $20 with Checkout 51 and is sent as a check in the mail (here is my tutorial on how to use Checkout 51).
Receipt Hog: Another way to earn a rebate on your ALDI shopping is to use Receipt Hog (earn extra points by entering the code found through the link when you sign up). With Receipt Hog you don’t need to purchase any particular item–you simply upload your receipt to earn points or spins.
You can trade in your points for Amazon gift cards or for a Paypal deposit. You can also get additional spins by sharing your referral code with friends, my code is YECT1667 . When you enter my code at sign up you get to start your account with 10 spins that can lead to points. I earned 60 points with my first spin and 15 points for the first ALDI receipt I uploaded.
Cash out at Receipt Hog begins at 500 points for either a $5 Amazon gift card or a $5 Paypal deposit.
ShopKick: offers scans at ALDI, not many but it is worth looking. Here is a tutorial I wrote about the ShopKick app. You can sign-up for Shopkick here.
