Mold on bread 2 days before expiry date
Bought my regular white bread slices but found mold on the bread 2 days before the expiry date! Photo taken on 20th Feb at 8pm! Recently their breads have massive difference in quality.
Great Beer and Wine at very low prices
I often buy my beer and wine at ALDI. The 12 packs of beer (Corona & Rivet Gold Mid strength cans) are always great value for very reasonable quality beers. The selection of Red and White wines is also good. ALDI doesn't chill their alcohol so you can't really buy beer and white wine expecting to drink them straight away. This is a small issue when you consider the great pricing for their alcohol.
What’s wrong with my favorite bread?
I purchased my favorite low carb bread yesterday and went to prepare a sandwich. Tiny slices! Never seen such a tiny loaf. Went back, told the store and took another loaf home. Photographed the size and weight difference. What’s going on with this huge discrepancy in size and weight for the same priced product? Has this been reported before?

Good for specials only
Easy to walk around and good when fruit and veg are on special. The special buys are good only if it is worth it or if you need the item. I like to pack my own bags, thats a plus.
Rip off fees
Aldi charge the same fee for using paywave and apple pay as they charge for using a credit card.
If card and pin in the terminal is used no fee.
I checked a lot of paywave and apple pay receipts with many other shops and petrol shops and none of them charge a fee for paywave or apple pay
Only aldi do.
What a rip off
Squeeze Mop Heaven
I recently purchased a squeeze mop from Aldi. I have in the past purchased dozens of these from cheap to expensive, and have always been disappointed.
Not this time, Aldi's mop is just great, thick multi layered cleaning pad, cleans leaving no streaks, and wrings out well.
Thank you Aldi, please keep these in stock.
International Cuisine Shepherd's Pie: So over-spiced I had to bin it
Aldi is my favourite first stop shop before any other. Recently, needing a quick easy meal, I bought the frozen International Cuisine Shepherd's Pie pack. I usually love Shepherd's Pie but this time the pie was so heavily over spiced with what tasted like pepper after two mouthfuls I had to throw it in the bin. I will not be risking buying this product again.

ALDI Fibre Powder - 100% Psyllium Husk - Do not dissolve completely
I have been using Psyllium Husk as a supplement as advised by my Gastroenterologists and normally buy the Metamucil but purchased the ALDI Fibre Powder of Essential Health that is also claimed as Fibre Supplement - 100% Psyllium Husk. However the problem with ALDI Fibre Powder is that it does not dissolve completely in Water and remain floated. It seems more powdery then the the Metamucil. ALDI & Essential Health might try to make it easily Dissolvable.
so i brought the small item potato chips (sprinters) while i was buying i didn't check the date cause i trusted the brand. today when i open it it was like too bad. like a chips from rotten potato. taste was so bad i nearly vomited. moreover there is no any expire date mentioned in the packet.
Terrible customer experience
Staff are being “audited” so they treat everyone as a criminal. The customer experience team need to look at the policies and how your customers are treated by your staff. Just terrible.
Pink Desk Lamp
This is an excellent student lamp as it faces downwards. It's adjustable and looks great! Soft enough pink that it's not overbearing. Could have been a bit cheaper but I am happy with it!
Useless staff, they don't care, no accountability.
As I have stated once before about ALDI at Glenquarie, again no stock when you shop there excuses of no staff to stock the fridges, on a wet day they refuse to go and collect the trolleys.
I end up having to go to the next ALDI at Minto and guest what all shelves stocked and fridges full.
What a joke, never again will I shop at Glenquarie. If I could I would give them minus 5.
Poor corporate citizen on recycled paper products and protection of wildlife habitat
- recent fires which are still raging in parts of the country (as at 7.2.2020),
- the appalling loss of wildlife and their habitat,
- the continuing clearing of virgin country for mining and building,
- the logging of govt forests and private land containing wildlife including koala colonies and dozens of other animals (kangaroos, wombats, sugar gliders, bats, possums, reptiles etc), and
- the most recent example of large scale animal cruelty at a timber logging project in Portland Victoria resulting in the death and injury of a few hundr...
off seafood - no accountability from Aldi
I purchased some off fish from Aldi and contacted their "customer service" team to advise of my food safety concerns. Aldi were only interested as to whether I could provide proof of my purchase to avoid the issue, despite my initial advise that I was snot chasing a refund.
Hurstville Not Advised On Surcharge
I've shopped in Aldi Hurstville for many years. I used to pay by inserting my debit card with pin# caused i was told by Aldi there was no surcharge. As technology progressed, i've paid with 'tap and go' which then followed with the current 'pay by phone'. Never once was i ever advised by the checkout staff that there was a surcharge, even after i said 'pay by savings', so i continued to use that method of payment. Recently my debit account only had the exact amount for the groceries in my card for payment, i used 'paid by phone' and it was decl...ined. That's when the staff told me there was a surcharge. After years of payment, NOW she tells me there is a surcharge? It was so humiliating! I later read online that after the 2014 inquiry on Aldi regarding surcharges, the checkout staff MUST advise customers on surcharges before payment. Yet the staff are still not advising customers & i reckon Aldi is doing it intentionally. Makes me wonder how much surcharges had been taken from my debit card throughout the last few years. I've now switched to Woolies and Coles caused I despised dishonest corporation like Aldi! It's all about principles. Shame on you Aldi for taking advantage of your loyal customers!!
What the hell are these sausages
So I bought the premium beef sausages at Aldi on the weekend for Australia Day. They were the most tasteless tough and gristly sausages I have ever had I pulled the grissle and bonney bits from a single sausage and it was equivalent to half the entire sausage it was dry and inedible. Lift your game Aldi at $5.99 this was disgusting I won’t trust any sausages from Aldi again it totally ruined my day!
The new dual-checkout is great, but when will you provide us with baskets?!!!
* aldi, when, when, when will you spend a few bucks and provide us with baskets, not just tanks...I mean trolleys. Many of your customers are single. It's just stingy.
* aldi is now famous for being out of stock. For example, at their heidelberg west store they are often out of orange juice and various standard types of alcohol. Hey I thought the germans were famous for their efficiency lol?T
* the new dual-checkout thingy allows two people to pack their groceries at the same time. Brilliant !
* yeah, the prices
I would just like to congratulate Aldi on their stores. I usually shop at the Banksia Grove store, though sometimes I do visit other ones. It took me a while to get used to the concept, but the staff is friendly and the prices are good. I also converted one friend to into an Aldi fan.

Questions & Answers
Bought a churros maker following instructions churros wont cook in side can anybody help?
Contact Aldi. Don't expect them to be much help though. They will find every reason to wiggle out of making good on it.
Everyone should hold their breath, engage their brain cells first, then come to the same conclusion any reasonably educated person would come to. That is, Aldi, just like around 95% of retailers, do not manufacture the products they sell and have no responsibility under Commonwealth law when the product comes with a warranty from the manufacturer or distributer. I.e.: if you purchase an LG TV from Harvey Norman, the warranty is with LG, therefore you chase LG for the repair or technical assistance. This applies even if the product carries the retailers own branding, however the enclosed brochure clearly states whom the manufacturer/distributer is for warranty or technical service. Retailers are only obliged to accept returned products if they don't meet a "fit for purpose", are "dead on arrival" and fail within the warranty period. On this basis, the retailer will provide a refund and they will receive a credit from the manufacturer/distributer.
