    Aldi now selling wine online with free delivery

    Aldi now selling wine online with free delivery 19th Jan 16 at 9:07 AM
    I was just about to browse the new special buys on Aldi's website and couldn't help but notice the new design and new pages to nose through. Looks like they're selling all their fancy wines by the case online and even free delivery, hopefully see more things online soon this is great!

    Does seem a bit odd that a discounter is doing this though, what are the chances that Lidl will follow suit quite soon?

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert Tue 19 Jan: Standard delivery is normally £3. Aldi has told us there's no end date at present for the free delivery offer. Aldi currently has wines by the case starting at £21 for six bottles and a six case of champagne for £66 (£10.99 per bottle).

    Big thanks to xeonander for the original spot!

    The free delivery is described as a "launch offer", though I cannot see how long they are offering it for. In the Help it says Standard delivery is £3

    And imagine how much busier it would become if home shoppers started to clog up the aisles with trolleys! Nightmare! It's never gonna happen. There's a reason why Aldi works as well as it does. Don't change it!

    Boxed wine and none-grocery items can be selected and shipped direct from the warehouse so no impact on other shoppers.

    The free delivery is a limited promotional offer and will soon revert to standard, next day and named day delivery fees, starting from £4.00.

    Ah I missed that, glad to see the cost of my wine shouldn't be going up when I go shopping then. :-)

    I saw this post last night, ordered 2 cases about 5 pm, and they were delivered by 9am this morning! Parcel force, so received emails and texts confirming delivery day and even a 1 hour slot. Just ordered the same type that I buy in store, seemed to be the same prices. Have to say I've been impressed!

    Wine Offer with free delivery
    Saw this tonight on HOT UK Deals and ended up ordering a couple of different cases.

    https://www.aldi.co.uk/cambalala-south-african-pinotage/p/000000019525700

    Looks like some nice wines and the free delivery is a real bonus.
    Stopped smoking 27/12/2007, but could start again at any time

    Hi folks
    I ordered a case of wine with the free delivery and, guess what, Yodel lost it 'in transit'! Aldi apologised and it could take 10-14 days to refund the money.
    Hope other people have been more successful.

    placed my 1st order Sunday afternoon, wine delivered today with yodel & other bits are with hermes, delivery within next 2 days at a guess.

    added: hermes delivered the rest on the 7th, very pleased with the bath sheets & bath mat, both great quality for the price
