Aldi often rotates bedding of all sorts into its famous middle aisle. Some of it is excellent, including large embroidered quilt sets, kids’ quilts, and comforters and plush blankets. On the other hand, some Aldi bedding might leave something to be desired, as was the case when I tried out a bedding set from the discount grocer last year. In general, Aldi bedding tends to have almost a cult-like following, with fans swooping in to snatch up products such as velvet comforters and reversible bedding sets when they show up in stores.
So we know that blankets, quilts, and comforters from Aldi tend to be good to great. But what about bed pillows from Aldi? Are Aldi pillows any good?
I’ve bought bed pillows from Aldi a few times. I have purchased Aldi bed pillows for my own bed or for my kids’ beds from time to time. They tend to be about as good as other bargain pillows from big box stores — not the greatest, and not the worst, but they do the job, and they usually go flat and need to be replaced after a year or two. I currently have a couple of Aldi bed pillows on the full-sized bed in my guest bedroom. The guest bedroom pillows are about a year old and get slept on several times a year, usually when my parents come to visit, and my family has not had any complaints about them.
My husband and I are currently sleeping on some mid-priced Target pillows that I bought a year or two ago and have long gone mushy. So when I spotted pillows at Aldi recently, I took a gamble on one. At such a low price, I figured why not.
The Huntington Home Luxury Bed Pillow cost $7.99 at the time of publication. That’s about as cheap as bed pillows get, and it’s certainly a lot less than other down alternative bed pillows on Amazon.
This is an Aldi Find, so that means it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment of pillows, and after they sell out, they’re gone until Aldi decides to bring pillows back, whenever that might be. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.
If you miss out on buying this pillow, keep in mind that Aldi tends to sell different kinds of bed pillows several times a year. Wait a few months and you’re likely to see a pillow similar to this one on the discount grocer’s shelves.
This pillow was very poufy and fluffy in the store, and when I got it home and removed the plastic packaging and slid it into a standard-sized pillowcase. It’s large and filled out the pillowcase nicely. Upon initial use, the pillow feels good. It has a decent amount of filling and doesn’t squish down too much when I put my head on it. I’ve been using it for a week now and it’s very comfortable. I sometimes sleep with two pillows, especially when they start to go flat, but I don’t have to do that with this Aldi pillow. Of course, the real test is how the pillow will hold up after some use. I’ll update this post with new developments as necessary.
In the meantime, here’s more information about this pillow, according to the packaging and the tags:
- Standard/Queen sized: measures 20″ x 30″ (50 cm. x 76 cm.) according to the plastic packaging, while the tag on the pillow states finished size is 20″ x 28″

The Huntington Home Luxury Bed Pillow features down alternative filling and can be used in any sleep position. It is comfortable and plenty fluffy upon initial use. Like many inexpensive pillows, I don’t expect it to last forever, but I’m hoping it will be good for a year or so.
