Faster shopping, right down the line.
Smarter shoppers know ALDI checkout lines move much faster than anywhere else. Because ALDI has intelligently rethought the checkout process to speed up the line, and save you money. Check out all the reasons ALDI is smarter at checkout:
- ALDI packages have multiple UPC bar codes, to read dependably from every direction. Our checker can drag an item across the scanner without taking the time to turn it over.
- Taking checks also slows down the line and saddles us with bad check costs, so we don't mess around with them.
- By avoiding credit cards, we avoid the extra time it takes to sign a slip and the hefty processing fee charged by credit card companies.
- Our select brand assortment eliminates the issue of manufacturers’ coupons.
What ALDI does accept are cash, food stamps/EBT cards, and PIN-based debit cards—the lowest-cost forms of payment for us—and the fastest ones for you.
When it’s your turn at the register, push your cart around to the end of the lane, to easily load your groceries right back into your cart. As an ALDI shopper, you bag your own purchases, eliminating the expense of baggers. With no baggers to pay, we can run each checkout with one employee instead of two. You not only save—you control the weight and content of each bag.
To avoid adding the cost of bags to our prices, we encourage you to bring bags from home. But if you do need them, you can purchase environmentally friendly paper bags or plastic bags from the cashier at a nominal price. By the time you head out to the parking lot, you’ll be reeling from the high of low prices. Just remember to do one more "shopping smarter" thing—return that grocery cart, and get your quarter back. .
