And ALDI and Wegmans are in our top 3 places for sure, we just don’t talk about them as much (that should change hopefully in the future).
But one thing we really want to praise is the ALDI Double Guarantee policy.
In their own words:
ALDI Double Guarantee
We don’t guarantee our quality. We Double Guarantee it.
At ALDI, we believe that we have the best quality products out there. We’ve designed and tested our brands to exceed the national brands in taste and quality. We’re so confident in our products that every item in our stores is backed by our unbeatable Double Guarantee.*
If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with any product, we will gladly replace the product AND refund your money. To receive the Double Guarantee, the product packaging and any unused product must be returned to your local ALDI Store Manager.*
*The Double Guarantee does not apply to non-food ALDI Finds items, alcohol, national brands, and non-quality related issues.
Surprised – it really is double guarantee!
We have never been disappointed with much at ALDI. But recently, there were two items that I was not happy with. One was my mistake not reading the ingredients (we do not eat corn syrup), and the other might just have been a bad batch of cheese, as we had it before without issue.
The total was $8.00
At the register, they gave me $8.00 cash back, plus took about $8 worth of products from my new items and simply didn’t charge me for them.
So in essence, I got $48.00 worth of food for just $32.00 (if we had just thrown out the items we didn’t like).
We really appreciate that ALDI stands behind their products. It makes us even more confident in supporting them if they feel so strongly that we will appreciate the quality.
Naturally, I’m sure there are scammers out there who would want to take advantage of such a generous policy, which is not cool. Why would we want to hurt such a good company for meager personal gain? Thankfully, they’re pretty smart there at ALDI and would catch on eventually.
So there you go – another reason to make ALDI a definite regular in your supermarket rotation!
