One hack that can result in getting the freshest meat is to reach for the products that are placed on the bottom of the shelf.
“If your store is worth its salt, they will put the old stuff on top and the new stuff on the bottom,” Lesky confirmed in the clip to his over 300,000 followers.
“So, you can do that but it’s really annoying to us when you do.”
A Reddit user, who claims to also be an employee at Aldi, provided further details about the hack.
“When buying meat, look at the back of the cooler or the product on the bottom, we put the closest expiration dates in the front to rotate it. Same with bread. The deeper you go, the newer it is,” they wrote.
Another hack Lesky spoke about was shopping on Wednesdays as that is when the store restocks, ensuring you’ll get the freshest products.
“That’s true if your store restocks on Wednesdays, otherwise it’s gonna be a Sunday. You can find out by looking at the bottom of your ad.”
Reddit user AmiriteClyde said that Wednesday is “universally the best day to shop at Aldi.”
“New prices roll out every Wednesday and they have new ‘produce picks of the week,’ which means that you can get a steal on some produce and other products.”
Lesky also mentioned Aldi’s “killer” double money-back guarantee.
“Use that! Return stuff you don’t like…no reason. Just do it!”
Reddit users said the policy is great when trying products that you might be hesitant to buy in other places.
“If you don’t like it, bring it back and we’ll give you your money back and a similar priced product of your choice. It’s a win-win,” one user wrote.
“Example, you want to try our chips. You buy it and think it tastes like crap. We’ll give you your $3 back and a free box of cookies.”
