This Week at Aldi: The Ad for November 7, 2018

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 includes Advent calendars, travel gear, kitchen accessories, pet items, winter clothing and footwear, bedding and portable beds, and a few random products for the home.

The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:

ALDI Festive Collection Wine Advent Calendar

  • Festive Collection Wine Advent Calendar, $69.99 (price may vary by store). The thing the Internet has been hyping for months finally releases this week. This calendar comes with 24 mini-bottles of wine: red, white, rosé, and bubbles, including red blend, Shiraz, Malbec, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon Blanc from various regions. Expect a limited number of calendars to be in stock at each Aldi — possibly as few as 10 to 12 — and also expect them to roll out November 7th, and not before, even at Aldi stores that begin their ad week on Sunday. There is a limit of one per customer.
