Always Keep Your Receipt
Aldi has a “Twice as Nice Guarantee” If you aren’t happy with a product, Aldi will allow you to return it, as long as you have your receipt, any unused product, and the packaging. If you have a bad product and your receipt, Aldi will replace the product and give you a refund. What happens if you shop and you don’t keep your receipt? This simply means that you cannot take advantage of the Double Guarantee Policy at Aldi.
Bring Your Own Bags
By bringing your own bags with you to Aldi, you are going to save yourself a lot of money and a lot of hassle. You can also use the brown boxes that are all over Aldi’s sales floor. I’ve always found it easier to shop by bringing my own bags. The cost of bags can add up too if you shop at Aldi a lot. Tip: KEEP BAGS IN YOUR CAR!!!!!!!
