Aldi’s Deals for the Week of 8/28

I recently asked for feedback about what changes or new things you’d like to see on my site and it looks like more grocery store match-ups is one of them!  By popular demand, I’m going to start adding Aldi’s deals each week!  This week’s deals are brought to us by Coupon Clippin’ Daddy!

If you are new to shopping, at Aldi’s, here’s their coupon policy: or lack there-of since they don’t actually take coupons!

  • Aldi’s does not take coupons of any kind.
  • At Aldi’s, you will have to bag your own groceries and pay a quarter to get a cart. The quarter is reimbursed when the cart is returned.
  • You’ll need to bring in your own reusable grocery bags or you’ll have to purchase them in the store.

Here are some of the Aldi’s highlights for the week:  remember to check out Coupon Clippin’ Daddy for the rest of the deals!  It’s hard to judge what a “good deal” is since cost of living varies so much in various parts of the country, but these are all “good deals” by my standards in a low to moderate cost of living area!

Kirkwood Chicken Breasts (48oz)   $5.99 (this is cheaper than Walmart in my area and I’m guessing better quality although I can’t say for sure since I don’t have Aldi)

L’oven Fresh Hot Dog or Hamburger Buns   $0.79

Little Salad Bar Garden Salad   $0.79 per bag

Salt Potatoes (5 lb bag)  $1.99

Sweet Harvest Chunky Applesauce   $1.49

Tuscan Gardens Salad Dressings   $1.29

Kroger deals

I’ve been so wrapped up in CVS and Walgreens deals and I’ve been living off my stockpile for awhile, so I haven’t really been follownig the grocery store deals as much. Kroger has an instant $5 off when you spend $25 on P&G items promotion going on through 1/10/09.

There are a number of loadable P&G E-saver coupons that will work well with this promotion. Unfortunately, you will have to act quickly because they expire tomorrow.

Here are a few things you need to know about this deal:

*You can use paper manufacturer’s coupons in addition to the P&G E-saver coupons.

*You can get up to 2 $5 rewards per transaction.

*The ad does not specify this, but the tags in the store do: The $5 reward is not applied to your P&G items. You need to buy $5 (or $10 if you earn two rewards) in additional merchandise which the $5 will be applied to.

*Check your receipt carefully. Some people are reporting that there is a glitch when you use the E-saver coupons and the $5 is not coming off automatically.

*If you spend $50 on items (pre-coupon, of course), send in your receipt for a P&G coupon book with $120 worth of coupons. Details are here.
