I’m an Aldi worker – a customer had such a cheeky request, I couldn’t believe it when I saw how they arrived at the shop

ALDI is a store known for its low prices and affordable deals but a worker was left stunned when a shopper tried to save even more cash.

The Redditor, known only as Droolycat, then revealed they turned up in a pricey car to collect their shopping.


A shopper ordered five bottles of mango-flavored water and 10 bottles of raspberry-flavored sparkling water.

They requested: “Give me a case if able to avoid need (sic) to purchase a bag."

Staff were instructed to look out for a blackTesla Sedan in the parking lot, according to the employee.

Droolycat vented: “You can’t make this s**t up.”

Fellow workers took to the Aldi employees' discussion forum to say they would’ve been told off if they gave shoppers a case to pack their groceries instead of bags.

Droolycat said: “Some customers try to get us to use only boxes. Which I totally understand but we aren’t allowed to do that at our store.

“Then others get angry if I use a box for bulky items. I can’t win.”

Other Redditors claimed that: “People with money make good financial decisions… why waste money on the bag if a case isn’t an inconvenience.”

Meanwhile, a shopper known as Kati revealed on the True Money Saver blog that customers can use empty boxes to pack their groceries.

Using an empty box is cheaper compared to buying plastic bags which can be purchased for 10 cents.

And, a paper bag costs around seven cents, according to the shopper.

We revealed how a former worker revealed that Wednesday is the optimum day to shop at the store.

They said this is the time new products are released and when produce goes on sale, according to Taste of Home.

If you can make it to a store in the morning, you’ll beat everyone else to the best bargains.

This applies just to the US as the UK operation of the brand is a separate business.

'WEDNESDAY'S THE WORST DAY'

But, some employees dread Wednesday the most as customers line up outside the store before it opens.

One worker vented on Reddit: “Wednesday is obviously the worst day – literally 20 people will wait outside, same on the weekends.”

Another vented: “This is a regular occurrence for us.”

And, a third employee compared Wednesday to the Black Friday shopping craze.

We revealed how shoppers in the US can take advantage of the Twice as Nice Guarantee.

Customers can return items they’re not fully satisfied with and will be able to exchange them for something else and get their money back.

But, some items such as alcohol are excluded from the scheme as state law may ban the replacement or refund of booze.
