The best Aldi specials this week

Aldi sign in the centre, surrounded by Special Buys smartphone, air conditioner, monitor and fan.

Aldi Australia is challenging its bigger rivals Coles and Woolworths for supremacy on the back of a public image of consistently lower prices.

Research this year reported that Australians have an "emotional connection" to Aldi that is the envy of its competitors.

Loyal fans line up outside Aldi before opening to snap up the latest Special Buys homewares. Grocery specials – called Super Savers – are also popular, but the discounts are not quite as good as Woolworths and Coles' half-price specials in percentage-off terms.

For your convenience, Yahoo Finance has fought the crowds to pick out our favourites from this week's Special Buys and Super Savers:
