Big news from Aldi! Money expert Clark Howard’s favorite place to buy cheap groceries has announced a national partnership with Instacart to provide grocery delivery.
After a pilot program in several cities, the service will be available across 35 states by Thanksgiving.
Aldi and Instacart team up for nationwide online grocery delivery
In a news release, Aldi said the national rollout covers 75 major markets, including places like San Diego, New York City, Miami, Raleigh and Minneapolis.
Shoppers can order fresh groceries, such as produce, meat and seafood, for delivery in as little as one hour.
“The response to the ALDI pilot programs in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago have been overwhelmingly positive. Bringing delivery to ALDI stores across the U.S. enables Instacart to grow its base of customers and introduce even more people to same-day grocery delivery,” said Apoorva Mehta, Founder and CEO of Instacart. “Like ALDI, Instacart is focused on delivering value and making quality food accessible and affordable to everyone. We’re excited to work together to further innovate the shopping experience with fast delivery and low prices for ALDI customers.”
Here’s how it works: Customers fill their virtual carts online at Instacart.com/aldi or through the Instacart app, and a personal shopper takes over to select and deliver your groceries.
However, Instacart charges a delivery fee and items may be priced higher than what you’d pay in the store.
“ALDI is a pioneer and a leader in creating a shopping experience that works with people’s busy lives,” said Jason Hart, CEO of ALDI U.S. “Our partnership with Instacart and the expansion of our e-commerce options are more ways we are meeting the growing needs of today’s shopper, who wants high-quality food at unbeatable prices.”
First-time Instacart customers can get $10 off their first three Aldi orders of $35 or more with the code ALDILOVE.
Aldi operates more than 1,800 U.S. stores in 35 states and has plans to increase its store count by the end of 2022. Here are three secret ways to save even more when you shop there!
