Aldi launches first ever Christmas Savings Card!
It might be the middle of the summer, but Aldi want you to get prepared for the festive season with the brand new Aldi Christmas Savings Card!
We all know the festive season can be a serious outlay on the bank accounts. Take-home grocery sales in Ireland rose by 17% in the 12 weeks running up to 27th December 2020, and a record-breaking €1.2 billion was spent on groceries in December, making it the busiest month ever.
Bumper sales of alcohol, sweets and cheese saw the grocery spend per household average at €649.80 for 2020 according to Kantar. This means that if you start saving now with Aldi’s new Christmas Savings Card, you’ll have enough saved to cover the cost of your Christmas groceries!
Saving as you go to make the festive season more affordable is a great idea and will help to make your Christmas as stress free as possible! Spread the financial burden throughout the year by regularly topping up your card. You’ll thank yourself later!
Here’s how to become an Aldi Christmas Saver:
1. Pick up a card in store – simply pick up a card at the checkout the next time you are in store and then register it online.
2. Top up at the checkout – It’s up to you when you want to top up your card. Add up to €500 per card, whenever you’re at the checkout. Want to keep tabs on your savings? Ask one of Aldi’s friendly checkout assistants and they’ll be happy to tell you how much you’ve saved so far. Save up for Christmas or use it throughout the year when savings come in handy.
3. Spend your savings – you can use your card throughout the year in any of Aldi’s stores in Ireland.
