10 x ALDI CARDBOARD BOXES @ 20p each - PACKING OR REMOVALS £1.99

Just been to Aldi, where I bought packs of 10 cardboard boxes for £1.99.
Each box is 60cm x 36cm x 39cm. Works out at 20p per box, and I think thats a good price if you're buying boxes. Obviously cheaper to get free used boxes!

I bought 50 boxes for a tenner - from the Kingsbury store, not sure if it's national but mught be worth a look.
They were marked "when the're gone the're gone"

And for those that are interested, these are really very good, double walled corrugated boxes, with reinforced hand holes. Designed in a way that you don't need to tape the box closed, it folds into itself, so it's easy to build, close, re-open and store/re-use when your done.

I didn't know all that when I bought them, so I also bought 5 x packing tapes for 2.99 and a tape gun for 2.99, not sure if that's cheap but I think the're not bad either.

??? per box?
#5
it seems it is £1 .99p per box....I phoned head office as these would have been great for me.
Could it maybe be a pack of 10?
#6
1.99 / 10 = 0.199

Think thats what the op means. £1.99 for a pack of 10
#7
that is a good price if it is 20p. the trouble with free boxes is that they are often only single skinned and so when you loads them up they are a bit flimsy
#8
Why on earth would anyone buy a empty box? There are millions being taken to tips all over the country every week, why not use some of these free ones.

think the op should state its £1-99 as you cannot buy one box at 20p, or state it works out at 20p per box
#12
isn't it what's inside the box that counts?

They are normally flattened or recycled where I live.

I agree the op means its a pack of 10 for £1.99 which is a bargain, but when I have phoned head office and looked on the website its £1.99 each. I need loads as we are going to Canada so at 20p each its great but not at £1.99p. Can op confirm there are 10 in the pack? Thanks.

Well the original poster states they bought 50 boxes for a tenner.
£1.99 per pack x 5 = £9.95 or pretty much a tenner.
5 x 10 = 50.

So must have been ten in each pack, no ? :whistling:
#18
Perhaps there is 1 box per pack, but 10 boxes per outer, which the shop should have separated, but didnt?

OP - Are each of the 10 boxes individually wrapped/labelled, or is it just 10 loose boxes in one package?

If a shop mistake, its not going to be available elsewhere, and is a useless post.

If not, and its supposed to be 10 for £1.99, then its hot.
#19
I saw these yesterday. It was pretty clear that these were £1.99 per single box, although further down some were wrapped in white plastic banding - in probably 10's. At £1.99 these are still quite reasonable, but they were NEVER going to be £0.19 each!!!

EDIT: btw I'm not doubting what the OP paid for these, but they didn't appear to be that price in my store (Shrewsbury). Wish I'd tried at the checkout though now, even though I didn't need any!!
#20
Been to Aldi in Fenton Stoke-On-Trent about 1 hour ago and they are £1.99 EACH.
#21
Most supermarkets wont give out used boxes due to waste packaging regulations.


If aldi are doing 10 boxes for 2 quid the ecommerce site im launching in work for removal boxes will go belly up very quickly!
#22
Wonder if OP took the outers (containing 10 boxes) to the till and the operator scanned just one box in each outer so they only paid £1.99p per OUTER instead of £1.99 per Box.....:thinking:

This offer began yesterday so if the outers had not been unpacked to sell them singly this would explain it !

Would mean OP got £99.50 worth of boxes for £9.95. :w00t:

And some peeps were saying these were not worth 20p each.

As these are WELL DESIGNED boxes - double walled, handles, lock closure - I am thinking the till operator has made a big mistake here but the person putting them out on the shopfloor should have separated them. No doubt both were overworked.

In fact the person on the till at Aldi is usually someone who has been putting stuff out seconds before......Aldi running on a skeleton staff has no doubt led to this mistake.
#23
I bought a box this morning for old books and they were £1.99 each - our store on the Wirral had separated them all out. Looks like original poster got themself a good deal:thumbsup:

Another person from Shrewsbury, I swear thats about 5 of us now...!

1.99 in Canterbury per 1
#26
just gone and got 10 for £1.99.
Some of them were loose and some were tied together in bundles of 10.

Look like good boxes for ebay use!

For those of you who were charged £1.99 PER BOX- sorry!! They'd be very expensive boxes then, to quote the lady at Aldi, whom I asked!

H+R
#27
I get it now! Right starting today i am saving every box i get, in 6 months i will put a post on here that i am selling them for 10p each. Going by the way you lot are voting this hot, i will soon be a millionaire. One day Rodney all this will be your's. Even Delboy couldn't come up with a scam like this.
#28
These are defo £1.99 each.

Anyone who gets 10 for £1.99 is shall we say "taking advantage" of the way they are delivered and might be displayed (in bands of 10) coupled with Aldi staff inertia. Hope the staff don't get it in the neck when all the figures are reconciled. An individual store could be down several hundred quid just on this one item if they sell all of them the "wrong" way.

So you work for ALDI head office and have this on good authority do you? :whistling:

Both the working staff at my branch - one just loitering around, topping up fruit juice and the other, on the tills were more than happy to sell me all 10 for £1.99!

It's all recycled stuff anyway- they're still making money out of them and my branch only had 50 (or £10s) worth so I'm not sure I was the only one to have been buying them!

Yes they are meant to be £1.99 each. Sorry if you think I am wrong.
#31
I've just checked in my local (Thamesmead, SE London). There are none tied or otherwise packaged together in 10's. These are £1.99 each, ie per individual box.

Anyone that got 10 for that price, well done, but anyone going looking for a bargain don't hold your breath.

£2 for 10 is rediculously cheap, think about it!
#32
Just to confirm, it is 1.99 for a pack of 10 boxes. Honest, cos I bought 'em.
#33
I am not disputing that you (the original poster) and a few others got these for £1.99 for 10.

But anyone who gets them for this price is doing very well indeed because they are 100% MEANT to be £1.99 each.

These boxes are huge even in their flat state.

I have been to 2 ALDI stores and both had them out in metal stands, all individually stacked.

Checked with staff and they are £1.99 each. They were selling them how they were MEANT to be sold. The website correctly states £1.99 each as well. (If it had been £1.99 for 10 the website would have displayed 19.9p each in the pricing information box so there's a clue.)

And considering the size and quality of them, £1.99 is a "good" price to pay compared to how much they would cost from a dedicated box company. You could easily pay £3-£4 for them if you went to a packaging company.

So if you are getting them for 19.9p each you are doing very well indeed.

To get 50 of these for less than £10 is phenomenal. I would probably have done the same if I had seen them !
#34
These double-walled boxes are still available in some Aldi stores. They are of superb quality and not bad value at £1.99 each (Staples charge around £3.99 for a single wall version which is crazy for a medium size cardboard box!). I always try to use recycled boxes but it is proving much more difficult to obtain them. Major supermarkets crush them up for professional recycling in cages or huge bins and don't welcome customer access to protected storage areas. They also no longer make them readily available at check-outs. You are also prevented from removing them from disposal sites!

I went today and saw these boxes for £1.99 each. The title says it. And proof is here

It's a shame some have taken advantage and got 10 boxes for the prices of one. :?
