Does Aldi Deliver Groceries? Everything you need to know about Aldi Delivery.
Great news, Aldi fans– Aldi delivery is available through Instacart!
You can now order your favorite Aldi brands online and get them delivered as quickly as 1-hour through Aldi Instacart. There’s both an app and an online portal to select your products for delivery.
How Aldi Delivery works
- Sign up for an Instacart account – You’ll get $10 off your first order!
- Select items from Aldi for delivery – $10 minimum order
- Pay for items at checkout
- Get groceries delivered to your door in as little as 1 hour or choose Aldi pickup
If you’re new to Instacart, you’ll get $10 off your first delivery when you sign up. That equals free delivery and a few extra dollars off your order.
Aldi Delivery Cost
You can continue to use Instacart without a subscription for $3.99 per delivery for orders over $35 or for $7.99 per delivery for orders under $35 (prices may vary by region).
If you want free Aldi delivery, you can subscribe to Instacart Express for $99 per year – this gives you access to unlimited Instacart delivery, AKA free Aldi delivery for orders $35 or more delivered within 2 hours. There’s even 2-week free trial!
With Instacart Express, the delivery fee comes out to $1.90 per week if you use Aldi delivery once per week for a year…quite a bargain!
In addition to Aldi delivery, you’ll also have access to free delivery from Publix, The Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Costco, Sam’s Club, Kroger, Earth Fare, Petco, CVS, Total Wine, ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, and more, depending on your area.
When you sign up for Instacart you’ll enter your zip code for the full list of stores in your area.
Instacart Food Prices
We’ve noticed that the prices on Instacart vary by region. In general, there is a 10% – 15% increase on items ordered through Instacart versus the prices listed in the Aldi Ad.
The good news for Aldi shoppers is that Aldi’s already low prices mean a minor increase for Instacart shoppers.
For example, when we use Aldi delivery, Greek yogurt is $.69 in-store and $.79 through Instacart. Eggs are $.88 in-store and $.88 on Instacart — so not every product is higher on Instacart.
The additional fees will be minimal on your overall order and you’ll have the convenience of not having to go to the store.

What if an item is out of stock in the store
This is probably the biggest question about Aldi delivery and it’s a valid one. If you order an item through Instacart and your personal shopper finds that it’s out of stock in-store, they will contact you through the app with a replacement based on what’s available.
You can cancel the item altogether, or choose the replacement which is charged at the actual price. We run into this issue with sparkling water as our Aldi seems to run out unflavored seltzer very quickly.
Instacart on a Budget
It’s totally possible to use Instacart while being on a budget. In fact, I think you can SAVE MONEY by having your groceries delivered versus shopping in-store every week.
When you use Aldi delivery, you’re only purchasing what you need. There is no Aisle of Shame or in-store product temptations. Believe me, I know how easy it is to buy a new bottle of wine, a box of cookies or a candle “just to try” while shopping in store!
Keeping to a shopping list and only buying what you need will save you money, even with a delivery fee and tip, which is at your discretion.
Bags for Aldi Delivery
As you may know, one of the ways that Aldi keeps its prices low is by charging for paper or plastic bags at checkout. In-store, this is completely optional as shoppers can bring their own reusable bags or carry out items without a bag at no extra charge.
With Aldi delivery with Instacart, the Instacart personal shopper will purchase bags as needed and the additional bag fee will be added to your order. In our area, paper bags are 10 cents each…bag prices may vary by location.
Instacart Promo Code
You don’t need an Instacart promo code to get $10 off your first order. Simply sign up through this link and $10 will be applied to your account when you go to checkout. Full disclosure, we will also receive $10 from Instacart for sharing this offer.
We use Aldi delivery via Instacart whenever we’re too busy to get to the store to shop or when we want to place an order outside of Aldi hours to be delivered the next day. This has saved us from eating out or ordering takeout on multiple occasions!
Remember, you can get $10 off your first order, which equals free delivery and a few extra dollars off — so there is no risk in giving Instacart a try. You have no obligation to join Instacart Express.
