Last Updated on December 10, 2022
Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi weekly ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as Sunday.
This week’s theme is kitchen products, Christmas gifts, Christmas decorations, additional Advent calendars, toys, arts and entertainment, tools, candles and wax warmers, personal care products, electronics, school and office supplies, home goods, pet supplies, apparel, and assorted food highlights.
If you don’t see a product in your local store during the week it was advertised to hit shelves, it may simply be delayed. In our experience, delayed products usually show up by the following week.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Ambiano Single-Serve Espresso Machine, $79.99. We’ve seen Aldi sell a regular espresso maker before, but never a single-serve one like this. It’s available in Black or Navy with 2 preset sizes – espresso (1.35 oz) & lungo (3.38 oz). It includes a removeable 1-liter water tank for easy refill. Read more information here.
