The best Aldi Specialbuys to have on your radar this week
If you’ve ever shopped at Aldi, it’s likely you’ll be familiar with its middle aisle, which has earned the budget supermarket a cult following in recent years. Home to what Aldi calls its “Specialbuys”, it’s filled with practically everything you could ever need, from cordless vacuum cleaners and silk pillowcases to fancy pet beds and even barbecues.
Delivering an exciting mix of great-value products that cover a wide range of activities and hobbies, such as sports, camping, DIY, beauty and much more, the bargain buys are available to purchase in Aldi stores.
But, if you fancy skipping the queues and being first in line, you can shop many of these deals online through the supermarket’s website too. By shopping online, you get to check out which products are up for grabs before they land in stores – which usually happens every Thursday and Sunday – and order them up to a week in advance.
This week, the supermarket has brought back some fun bits for the garden including an inflatable shark water slide and a four-person hot tub for alfresco entertaining. Meanwhile, those looking to spruce up their garden – despite the dreary weather encouraging us to do otherwise – you’ll find buys that are just the job with many discounted by 40 per cent when you use the cose “OUTDOOR40”.

The budget supermarket launches new Specialbuys every week on Thursday and Sunday morning.
The time that these items become available to purchase online depends on which day they are launching. Aldi Specialbuys launching on Thursdays can be bought at 8am, while Sunday’s deals are available from 10am.
If, in the rare instance, some items are left over, they will remain on sale until they are sold out. There is also a chance that some Specialbuys could be discounted every four to six weeks, depending on how much stock is remaining.
Aldi’s special deals are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so shoppers need to be one of the first online, or through store doors, to ensure they get their hands on their item of choice. You can either buy direct from your local store the day they go on sale or order from the online shop.
The supermarket delivers an exciting mix of top-quality, great-value products that cover a wide range of activities and hobbies, such as sports, camping, DIY, beauty and much more.
Yes. Shoppers can place an online order for any Specialbuy items up to a week in advance. However, the products will not be dispatched until the launch date.
Due to increasing popularity, many of the supermarket’s deals sell out within a matter of minutes. But, fear not, because you could get another chance to snap up one you missed. While some of Aldi’s Specialbuys are limited-run and only launch at a specific time of year, some are brought back, owing to popular demand, such as its famous Gardenline egg chair, which has sold out every time it has been relaunched.
To help you decide which products to add to your shopping basket, we’ve rounded up our picks from Aldi’s latest arrivals.
When it comes to entertaining little ones in the warmer weathe, it won’t get much more exciting than an inflatable water slide. Once inflated, which, according to the supermarket will take less than two minutes, the fun starts with a slide, water cannon, a climbing element and a shallow pool for splashing about in. Guaranteed to provide hours of outdoor fun (and induce a few squeals of excitement) it’s designed for kids aged three up to 10 years old (sorry adults, you’ll have to sit this one out).
As with many of the middle aisle buys this week, just use the code “OUTDOOR40” when you buy for 40 per cent off.
Bring the calming experience of a soak at the spa to your garden with this hot tub. Roomy enough for four people to relax in, you can take a dip in the octagon-shaped tub with 135 jets blasting heated bubbles and two headrests for the ultimate alfresco unwind session. Said to feature a control panel that’s easy to use, the tub should also be easy to keep in tip top condition owing to limescale protection, filter cartridges and a lockable cover.
Should you be looking to include homemade pizzas on your cookout menu this summer, Aldi’s wood-fired pizza oven is now back in stock. This sounds like a serious bit of cooking kit; heating up in as little as 10 minutes it also comes complete with everything you’ll need to become your own personal Pizzaiolo, from a handy shelf to an ash brush, pizza cutter and pizza shovel for serving up. Not just for homemade margaritas, it can lend its hand to roasting, baking and even making dishes such as lasagna too.
