Does Aldi Take Credit Cards? What about EBT, WIC and Coupons? We answer all those questions and more here!
Does Aldi Accept Credit Cards
There was once a time when Aldi stores in the United States didn’t accept credit cards. The policy before March 2016 was that only cash and debit cards were accepted.
The good news for Aldi shoppers today is that all Aldi locations in the U.S. accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and contactless pay such as Apple Pay and Google Pay in addition to cash and debit cards.
Does Aldi Take EBT
Yes! Aldi accepts EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer).
Does Aldi Take Food Stamps
Food stamps are a bit of an outdated term, but for some reason, it’s still being searched in regards to Aldi and if they are accepted at the store.
SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is the program formerly known as food stamps and SNAP benefits are issued on a plastic EBT card, which works like a debit card.
So yes, food stamps are accepted at Aldi in the form of an EBT card. If you’re using EBT, Aldi is a wonderful place to shop as your benefits go a lot further than other grocery chains.
Does Aldi Take WIC
Unfortunately, Aldi does not accept WIC, which is a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program that provides milk, cheese, eggs, cereals, peanut butter and other nutritional food items for Women, Infants, and Children.
The reason Aldi doesn’t accept WIC is that Aldi brands are not national brands, therefore they don’t qualify under the program guidelines.
Does Aldi Take Checks
No, Aldi does not accept checks.
Does Aldi Have Gift Cards
Yes! Aldi has gift cards and they can be purchased at all Aldi stores in $5 increments, up to $100. At this time Aldi gift cards can’t be purchased online, however, you can check the balance of an Aldi gift card online at aldi.us/giftcards.
Aldi gift cards are reloadable. However, if the gift card has a $0.00 balance for over 30 days the card will be deactivated and will no longer be reloadable.
Does Aldi Take Coupons
Aldi does not accept manufacturers’ coupons. As the majority of Aldi products are Aldi brands with significant savings, no coupons are needed. When a national brand is stocked, it’s because Aldi negotiated the best price possible with their suppliers.
Be aware of fake electronic coupons that circle the internet. Aldi has stated that they don’t offer electronic coupons and they won’t be accepted at their stores.
The only coupons accepted at Aldi are from regional promotional mailings or newspaper ads that typically occur when a new store opens.
