Aldi Australia has carved out a public image of consistently lower prices than its older rivals Woolworths and Coles.
The retailer has developed such a loyal following in the country that a survey earlier this year showed Australians now have an "emotional connection" to Aldi – the sort of customer bond that the other two could only dream of.
The same study predicted the German challenger would push for equal market share as Coles and Woolworths within the next ten years.
Aldi fangirls and fanboys can be seen lining up outside before the doors open on Wednesdays and Saturdays to grab the limited-stock Special Buys homewares.
There are also discounted groceries called Super Savers, but the savings aren't quite as good as Woolworths and Coles' half-price deals in terms of percentage off.
Yahoo Finance has once again done the running around for you to select the best Special Buys and Super Savers for the coming week:
