    The old thread can be found here.

    Please use this new thread to report any good finds in the Discount stores Aldi & Lidl.
    You can also report any not so good deals as a warning to others.


    The Stollen bites and other xmas food was being given away FREE in my local Lidl this morning, plenty left and they want it shifted by next week.

    I wish they would have an explicit link on the website, I find it a complete waste of time to navigate.

    There are many things in life that can be questioned but does that stop us taking the risks.

    Unless you are going to eat this chicken everyday of the week, I don't think it will kill you. But the billions and billions of germs and viruses in the air might.

    Can someone remind me please what Aldi's policy is on returning part used goods if you're not satisfied with them?

    I really can't get on with the new Lacura face cream with Argan oil. Even using the tiniest smidgeon makes my face feel slimy and oily not long after applying it and forget trying to wear any make up on top of it.

    From this link they will always have at least 2 weeks of leaflets ( as long as you have a home store selected )

    I was v pleasantly surprised by the Aldi plums on offer for the previous fortnight. They actually ripened, and were delicious at 5p each.

    Take it back with your receipt, if you have it, within 60 days. There is a no quibble policy with unsatisfactory goods.
    I've not had to do this very often, once only I think, but when I did it went through without argument.

    Today I was able to get to a Lidl - I last went in one about 4 years ago, I think, before our Aldi opened. There isn't one that is easy for me to get to, but I've joined a shopper's group that has a regular minibus.

    Well, they have upgraded, haven't they? A lovely in store bakery, an unbelievable amount of fresh fruit and veg and some smashing reductions on special offers.
    There were a number of things that Lidl stock as standard that Aldi only stock as specials or not at all -and one vice versa. I'm sure there are others. . To be fair their store is larger than my Aldi.

    Rollmops.. Salamis .. Lidl had them in abundance. Ready to use chopped chillis and chopped garlic, get in! I use these a lot.

    What they didn't have - surprisingly - was Danish bread, though a very acceptable 400g seeded loaf was a decent substitute.
