As much as we adore Aldi’s Special Buys — and you know we really do — we’ve always had one quibble with it. You can’t get it online! You have to get the car (or motorcycle, bike or bus), and head down to your local shop — along with hoards of other customers, we presume — and battle it out, Game of Thrones-style (another presumption).
Well, it seems that Aldi has heard our call (and perhaps seen footage of the aforementioned Game of Thrones battles) and is trialling, for a limited amount of time, online exclusive Special Buys.
The purchases will be available on shop.aldi.com.au, in line with their in-store Special Buys. Just like their Special Buys, they’ll be available for purchase at 8:30am on Wednesdays and Saturdays; however, they’ll only be available in Greater Metro regions of Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria to start with.
And continuing on with the Game of Thrones theme, winter is definitely coming. This is why it’s so great that Aldi has you covered, ready to snuggle up with some hot chocolate. Aldi has promised that it can offer a “totally boutique upgrade” to your bedroom and bathroom for less than $350, so let’s hop right in and see how they do.
Looking to bring hotel luxury into your bedroom? This deluxe quilt, which boasts a 375 thread count, comes with a *touch* of silk and is available in queen size ($69.99) and king size ($79.99). For the ultimate in warmth and comfort? Pair it with the deluxe pillow($19.99), which — you guessed it — also comes with a touch of silk.
Quilted Coverlet Set
This set is fit for a king or a queen — wait, sorry, they’re the sizes it comes in (both sizes $69.99). Featuring a classic rib design — and coming with two pillowcases — this set is available in four stylish, sophisticated colourways.
