Aldi and Costco: Deal Hunting or Myth Busting?


Have you heard the rumor where you can apparently save 50% at Aldi’s if something has a sale by date within 5 days? Or how about the rumor that Costco sells a boatload of frozen cookies for only $32 bucks! Do either of these work? Or will you just leave the store embarrassed 🙈 I went to both and here’s what I found🕵️



Aldi Myth or Deal: If a perishable item is within 5 days of its expiration date, you get a 50% discount on the item 

You know I’m a sucker for money savers, so I had to try this one out. I ran to Aldi’s and found a bunch of items that were about to expire. Here’s what I learned.


This myth turned out to be… somewhat truthful! I wasn’t given discounts for 4 of my items, but the item that was expiring the next day was a winner! The answer is… it depends. The only luck I had was the item that had a sell by date of the next day.



Costco Myth or Deal: You can buy 120 of their frozen cookies for only $32


Have you heard this? I was SO excited because you know I love anything Costco, especially the cookies! I had to see for myself if I could take a bunch of these guys home with me. However, when I headed to the bakery, I found out this wasn’t true, at least not in the US.


The truth is, the Costco bakery sells nothing frozen in the US. If you live in Canada, though, you are in luck! If you are in Canada sister, go buy ’em and report back. It looks like I’ll be sticking to buying them in the food court for now.
