A Roundup of the Most Expensive Aldi Finds We’ve Ever Seen

Aldi is the place most of us go to for deals on groceries and necessities. It used to be known as the stock-up store, where you could buy inexpensive staples such as canned goods and baking supplies, and it’s still a great store to purchase food from.

But of course, these days Aldi is just as famous for its rotating stock of non-food products in the middle aisles. Many of the non-food items at Aldi have low prices, such as reusable drinking straws or cookware or exercise accessories.

So it may be surprising to see Aldi also sell some expensive products, including furniture, large exercise equipment, grills, air conditioners, and outdoor items. If you buy any of these, you might be dropping several hundred dollars. Nevertheless, Aldi still offers some of the lowest prices around, even on big-ticket items. You’d often be challenged to find similar big products for less money.

What follows is a roundup of some of the most expensive products we’ve seen Aldi sell in recent years. Many of them were sold in the last year but there are a few older items on the list, too.

Belavi Outdoor Rattan Sectional

Belavi Outdoor Rattan Sectional

Cost: $449.99

Thoughts: Sold in May of 2022, this sectional is the most expensive product we’ve ever seen Aldi sell. It comes with the sectional couch, which features a reversible chaise lounge that can be configured to fit your space, and it includes a coffee table.

Belavi Patio Egg Chair

Belavi Patio Egg Chair

Cost: $449.99

Thoughts: This showed up at Aldi in June of 2022, and it’s the same price as the Aldi sectional that seats more people (and the sectional even comes with a coffee table, too). This seems like a lot of money for just one chair, but it does appear to be on the larger side compared to egg chairs we’ve seen at other retailers. Of note: Aldi almost immediately discounted it down to $300 in many stores, maybe realizing it would be a tough sell at its normal price.

ProForm Cadence LT Smart Treadmill

Pro-Form Cadence LT Smart Treadmill

 

Cost: $389.99

Thoughts: This was sold in April of 2022 and is the second-most expensive price point we’ve ever seen from Aldi. It’s also the second treadmill we’ve seen Aldi sell in recent years. ProForm is not an Aldi-exclusive brand, and the Aldi price was similar to what other retailers sell this treadmill for. This treadmill is on the lower end of the price range for treadmills, though.

Belavi Large Fire Pit with Wood Storage

Belavi Large Fire Pit with Wood Storage

Cost: $219.99

Thoughts: Aldi sold this in June of 2022, and it’s unique because it comes with its own built-in wood storage under the fire pit. It’s middle-of-the-road in terms of cost compared to similar fire pits on the market.

Aquacruz Inflatable Stand-Up Paddle Board

Cost: $199.99

This is the most expensive one we’ve seen to date, but it still cost less than comparable name-brand models. It functions as an air conditioner, fan, or dehumidifier and can be installed in a window or sliding door.

Belavi Two-Pack Padded Rocker

Cost: $179.99

Belavi Patio Dining Table

Belavi Patio Dining Table

Cost: $169.99

Thoughts: Sold in August of 2021, this was a popular item among Aldi super fans and prompted quite a bit of chatter on Aldi social media pages. This table was nice enough that many people purchased it to use as their indoor dining table. The only downside was that Aldi sold chairs for this table separately.

Belavi Gazebo with Netting

Belavi Gazebo with Netting

Cost: $169.99 in April of 2021

Thoughts: Aldi sold this gazebo again in the spring of 2022, but because they stealth released it due to supply chain uncertainties, we don’t know if the price is the same as in 2021 or if it’s increased. Our readers generally seem to like this gazebo, but some advise taking the canopy down prior to inclement weather.

  1. I bought two WORKZONE 2000-watt Portable Inverter Generators when they marked them down to $249.99. One has already paid for itself by saving a refrigerator/freezer full of food during an extended power outage.

  2. Why does The Aldi Reviewer find it necessary to use an anemic gray colored font for the body of its articles? Anemic gray may sit well with the average reader, but for persons like me with limited vision, it would be far better to use full black instead.
