There’s so much to love about Aldi. Between the amazing prices, fresh produce and killer finds, it’s no wonder why they’re America’s cheapest grocery store. Not only that, but they now offer a grocery delivery service, and they’re continuously opening up more stores in new locations.

But do you know the deal with Aldi’s price tags? They’re one of the many Aldi secrets to look out for while you’re shopping. Look through our handy guide to the color-coded tags to make your next Aldi trip as easy as pie.

What Does Each Tag Mean?

Each Aldi price tag has its own color scheme and meaning, and things can get confusing. This list should make it simple:

  • Yellow sign with black print: Both Aldi regulars and seasonal items are tagged with this sign. The regular items will be in-store year-round and are restocked consistently, while seasonal ones return every year. If you want to know if an item is seasonal or not, your best bet is to ask at your local Aldi.
  • Yellow sign with black print and a blue flag: These items are new to Aldi. The blue “shelf talker” next to the price tag lets you know about the latest additions to their lineup.
  • White sign with red print: Aldi Finds! These are items that are only at Aldi for a limited time, so stock up when you see them. Depending on each store’s individual stock, the items may last a few days or a few weeks. But who wants to take a risk?
  • Yellow sign with red print: These are on clearance, which means this is the best price you’ll probably get for them. We suggest snatching them up before they’re all gone.

What About Aldi Savers Tags?

Not too long ago, Aldi introduced its Aldi Savers tags. The prominent red tags indicate regular items that have been given a significant price drop. They look like big arrows pointing down, and they may even be handwritten if a particular store really needs to move stock of a certain item. Keep an eye out for deals like this and stock up ASAP! There’s nothing quite like Aldi’s cheap grocery prices when it comes to shopping.
