To help save money on your supermarket food shop, Tesco is now price matching hundreds of own-brand products at Aldi. Some food may even be cheaper!
We are used to seeing price wars at the supermarket, and it can be hard to work out which supermarket is cheaper than others.
Prices can change from day to day, and I know that means many of us look to either shop at a few different places or stick to a budget supermarket to keep costs down.
The supermarket Tesco has launched a new way for us to save money and is matching products to Aldi prices.
Hundreds of products are being reduced both in store and online.
This means you’ll get Tesco products at Aldi prices.
You’ll easily be able to see what items have been price matched as you’ll see a red Aldi Price Match bubble with a large white tick in store, so you can clearly see where prices are the same.
Price reductions at Tesco start from Thursday 5 March 2020 on hundreds of items like avocados, orange juice, baked beans, bread and beef mince.
What’s being reduced at Tesco?
Tesco has found several products that people are more interested in saving money on (although I know we want to save money on everything!)
Price reductions aren’t for “junk food” but will see us get food to make healthy, hearty family meals for less.
Price matched foods include cupboard staples, fruit and vegetables, and meats:
- Tesco Lean Beef Steak Mince 5%, £1.99
- Tesco Greek Style Yogurt, 69p
- Tesco Ready to Eat Large Avocados, 95p
- Stockwell & Co Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce, 22p
- Tesco Pre Pack Broccoli, 57p
- Suntrail Farms Soft Citrus Pack, 75p
On top of the Aldi price matched products, you will continue to collect Clubcard points.
Plus, you can still use Clubcard Plus to save 10% off your food shop too!
Alessandra Bellini, Tesco Chief Customer Officer, said:
“Our customers tell us they want the most competitive prices on the things they buy regularly.
“This campaign will help time-poor and budget savvy customers get Tesco products at Aldi prices on products that matter to them.”

Considering mySupermarket shut down recently, making price comparisons at supermarkets is now going to work out harder.
While there are a few alternatives, knowing that prices will be the same in Tesco and Aldi will mean we can be sure to keep our food shop budget under control.
