Does $100 Off at ALDI Sound Too Good to be True? It Totally is
We’re ALDI lovers. The low-priced grocery store doesn’t disappoint when it comes to price or quality. With the help of the German grocer, we made an entire Thanksgiving dinner for only $85 — and it was delicious!
But could you imagine getting your hands on a coupon for $100 off at ALDI? I don’t know if I’ve ever actually exceeded $100 while shopping there!
Apparently, a coupon claiming to offer this massive discount has been going around — but is it too good to be true?
Don’t Fall for This Fake ALDI Coupon
Unfortunately, it is.
On March 24, ALDI USA released a statement on its Facebook page that read, “There’s a fake ALDI coupon making its way around the internet…again.”
WSYR in Syracuse, New York reported that Facebook user Melissa Sheriff saw the $100 off ALDI coupon circulating on her Facebook news feed. After further investigation, she found more posts with $60-$100 off coupons.
In its statement, ALDI explained that it doesn’t offer electronic coupons or gift cards, and they “won’t be accepted at our stores.”
ALDI also encouraged users to help spread the word about the fake coupon by sharing the post. As of today, it has more than 9,300 shares.
For now, it looks like there are no ALDI coupons in the near future. But don’t worry — we’ve uncovered a few ways to make it cheaper to shop there than it already is.
