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.
Coupon Apps That Can Help You Save Money At ALDI
CoinOut earns you cash back with almost any receipt/purchase. You can choose from three cash out options (PayPal, Bank Deposit, or Amazon), and two of them have zero minimum earning amounts. There is a daily limit on how many receipts you can upload in a day but the receipts can be a few days old before you upload them–which is a nice feature for us forgetful folks.
It is super simple to earn points using FetchRewards, just shop wherever you shop for groceries and when you are done, upload your receipt to FetchRewards. Within 24 hours (sometimes longer) you will receive points for your receipt. What you earn depends on what you bought and what their current offers are.
Go here to sign-up for Fetch Rewards: Use my referral code RE9FU at sign-up and receive bonus points when you complete your first receipt.
This app is so simple to use. Upload a receipt by taking a picture of it with your smartphone and watch your points and spins add up in Receipt Hog. There are lots of stores that qualify. And it works at grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, clothing stores and more.
Go here to sign-up for Receipt Hog Use the code YECT1667 during sign-up to earn free spins.
ShopKick offers scan points at ALDI, not many but it is worth looking to see if there are any each time you shop and shopkick offers so many other ways to earn points you can trade in for gift cards. Here is a tutorial I wrote about the ShopKick app.
Makeena is an app I am just starting to explore. It offers rebates on organic foods including many “any brand” offers that include items like milk, eggs, and various organic vegetables if you buy organics at ALDI definitely download and use the Makeena app.
Go here to sign-up for Makeena and use my referral code TWNAVD during sign up to earn 1000 points (equals $1) once you upload your first receipt.
The Swagbucks Answer app has recently started giving users 2 SB points for every grocery store and convenience store receipt you upload. One SB point is essentially worth a penny so getting 2 cents per receipt might not seem like much but Swagbucks has over 20 ways to earn points and many of them are super simple. If you were to combine this way of earning SB points with a few others you should be able to earn a gift card or two a month through Swagbucks –and their selection of gift cards to choose from is huge.
