Aldi, the UK’s fifth-largest supermarket, has launched gift cards in all its UK stores.
The cards, which are contactless and plastic-free, are located next to the greeting cards in Aldi’s more than 920 stores.
Customers can activate the cards at the till at the time of purchase with the amount of their choosing, up to a maximum of £500.
Recipients should present their gift card when paying for their shopping in store for the amount to be deducted from the total.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, said: “The Aldi gift card is the perfect present for any Aldi fan, whether it goes towards their food shopping or that must-have item from our Specialbuys aisle. We hope customers enjoy giving the gift of Aldi to their friends and family!”
Aldi is spreading the festive cheer and bringing together local communities by donating Christmas lunches to those in low-income areas across the UK.
Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket is working in partnership with Company Shop Group to provide free Christmas dinners at Community Shops in the run-up to Christmas.
Aldi has announced when its stores will be open over Christmas and New Year.
From Monday 18th December to Saturday 23rd December, shoppers can visit Aldi stores between 7am and 10pm to pick up everything they need to celebrate Christmas, at the lowest possible prices.
