Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as today, Sunday.
This week’s theme is exercise equipment, bedding, bathroom accessories, home organization aides, houseplants and other items for around the home, and food highlights that include special meals for Valentine’s Day.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Pro Form 205 CST Smart Treadmill, $249.99. We can’t recall Aldi selling a treadmill in our recent memory, so this is very intriguing to us.

It also features 0–10 mph speed, two manually adjustable incline positions, rebound cushioning, an integrated device shelf, 0–6% manual incline, a 1.75 CHP motor, a 16″ x 50″ tread belt, 1.6″ precision machined rollers, and a foldable, space-saving design.
