Considered a no-frills, high-quality grocery store, ALDI continues to improve the shopper’s experience by now offering ALDI curbside grocery pickup through their partnership with Instacart. Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect.

 

Find ALDI Grocery Pickup locations through the website or app.

Find out if your local ALDI offers grocery pickup by selecting “Pickup” and entering your zip code, or check through the ALDI mobile app.

You can also check out ALDI’s current list of all grocery pickup locations, which are located in the following states: AL, AK, FL, GA, IL, IN, IA, KS, MD, MO, NE, NY, NC, OH, OK, PA, SC, TX, VA, WI, WV.

 

Shop the full selection of ALDI Finds and exclusive products via ALDI Grocery Pickup.

Fill your cart and select a pickup time and location. Your Instacart shopper will text you when your order is ready. Pull into one of the designated, blue curbside spaces, follow the instructions on the sign, and your shopper will load groceries into your car. Easy, right?!

One thing to keep in mind is the final total on your order; it could change depending on exact weight of a product sold by weight, or if an item is out of stock or needs replacing. When you place an order, you’ll be given the anticipated total, but what you’re actually charged may be different. You’ll be charged or credited the difference.

Prices for ALDI Curbside Grocery Pickup are about 17% more than in store.

The in-store price of a particular item at the time a purchase is made, including for weighted items, may differ from what is available through the Instacart platform. Additional fees apply to online orders.

Here’s a quick look at the differences:

Burman’s Ketchup
$1.19 in store ($1.35 pickup)
Appleton Premium Bacon
$3.49 in store ($3.85 pickup)
Nature’s Nectar Apple Juice
$1.09 in store ($1.35 pickup)
Final Price: $5.77 in store ($6.55 pickup)

For just these three items you’ll pay an extra $.78. Order a trunk full of groceries for pickup and you may increase your total by about 15-17%.

 

Save with the Ibotta rebate app when you shop ALDI curbside or in store.

ALDI doesn’t accept manufacturer coupons (because their pricing is already so low!), and because most of their items are ALDI brand. However, you can use the Ibotta app to earn cash back on produce and name brands like Chobani yogurt and Kevita Kombucha. Just download the app, select ALDI, and the items you plan to buy. After you pick up your curbside order scan your receipt into Ibotta.

 

Additional fees may be charged for your ALDI Curbside order.

I reached out to both ALDI and Instacart, and the only info I got was that a bag fee may be added to your final total (varies store to store, but generally about $0.10 a bag) and will be visible on your receipt after delivery. Plus, a small pickup fee of $1.99 will be applied to each order to offset the costs of online shopping.

 

No need to bring a bag when you pick up your ALDI Curbside order.

No, your shopper will use ALDI shopping bags to bag your Curbside orders.

 

Curbside Shoppers accept tips.

 

Instacart Curbside shoppers accept tips. Instacart recommends about 5% of your entire purchase amount, but it’s up to you to decide.

Fun fact: Instacart shoppers can see the amount of the order, and the amount of the tip, if you added it in at online checkout. They will accept bigger orders with better tips faster, as they get to pick and choose which orders they take.
