Really like the white house advent calendar

A family member work for Ald and said that the White House Advent Calendar was not for sale on line this year due to stock problems each store should have around 12-15 on Thursday so you will all have to be quick if you want one

Look out for a £5 off promo at the end of your online order at Aldi, they just want a friends email and then you both get £5 off your next spend of £45 or more (you get your £5 off code once your friend has completed their first shop of £45).

Good luck getting one of the white ones. I have two stores within 10 minutes driving distance of me and as I was walking into one of them within 5 minutes of opening on the day last year, there was some asshat coming out with a trolley filled with them.

No doubt joining the legions of like-minded greedy gits Ebaying them for £20 a pop later that day.

The staff suck. They're happy to let someone fill a trolley and buy them all, despite each store getting a limited amount.

If true then it is sad, but unfortunately greed is human nature.

I decided not to bother in the end, but I hope at least some members here got one for themselves.

Just been to my local and they didn't receive them in so disappointed

Same here. Couldn't confirm what time the delivery would be either. Just "Some point in the next 48hrs". Thinking that's a fail for me as too far from work to get to check regularly!

That's my problem too!! They said there had been a regional delay but I will be at work later and when they do eventually come in I'm sure they will sell out.

Yaaaa got one today from Bamber Bridge store 🏻😊had quite a few, but everyone who entered the store picked 2 up!!

Got to store with my son at 7.55 this morning first ones there. No delivery and don't know when they will be getting any. One disappointed child off to school this morning. 😥

Thanks OP!
Got kids up early, drove and waited outside ALDI from 7.45am with a trio of lovely cheerful women all waiting for them too. Kept entertained by my sons larking about. Slightly anxious moment when a store employee came out and asked if we were waiting for the wine advent calendars and when we all replied in unison "no, the wooden ones" she said she hadn't seen them and thought they maybe hadn't been delivered yet.....but fortunately they HAD been delivered! I got one of each design for each of my 3 kids, and an extra gingerbread house one for my mum. All the other ladies waiting also got the ones they wanted (the white one)

All very civilised and no sign of any ebay flippers at our store anyway!

Back home just in time for school drop-off. Kids got ALDI waffles to eat in the car for "second breakfast" as a treat for getting up early, and have a tale of adventure to tell their friends at school.!

For those that couldn't get an ALDI one, I can recommend the Matalan versions. They are really nice, albeit a lot more expensive at £20. They have a "Santa house" and a "Christmas village" that is little house-shaped boxes that you can arrange like a model village. They were to have been my fall-backs if I hadn't managed to get any ALDI ones.

Update mum been into her Aldi and got me the gingerbread house. 🙆🙆🙆🙆🙆.
I think I am more excited than my son will be

Your welcome, thanks for the post.

Aldi in blackwater (camberley) had quite a few still in at 9am this morning. Plenty of gingerbreads left and at least 7-8 White houses (didn’t see any nut cracker). Got one of each for me two small people.

Update, just managed to run to the local Aldi and got one, lucky timing

For information, there are no whitehouses, but as of 30 minutes ago I would estimate 15 Ginger Bread and 20 Nutcrackers in Aldi Didcot.

There were lots in stock at Aldi Westerhope store near Newcastle. I was heading home after dropping the wife off at work and managed to get 2 at about 8:30 this morning.

Almost all out in Bromsgrove when I was there about an hour ago. The white ones were all gone and only 2 gingerbread ones were there but I bought one. There were maybe 8 Nutcracker ones left after I bought one. I’d normally have been in Worcester but I’m betting they were all out so I’m glad I was in Bromsgrove. I just wanted 1 of each for my 3 kids and get really annoyed that Aldi don’t limit specials to say 5 per customer (not like 5 of each style but 5 in total). I suppose those greedy ebay sellers would just bring a couple of friends so they could buy the whole stock.

Got to Durham at 7.50, was first one outside, got in and couldn’t find them. Staff tried to say they hadn’t arrived but manager located a few boxes out the back that had been forgotten about. I got my gingerbread house and the others waiting after me got their white ones.

Aldi in Glenrothes have 2 gingerbread house and loads of nutcrackers as of 2 minutes ago 😊

Thank you OP - picked up White and Gingerbread in the Lincoln store this morning. Got there at 07:40. Then the car park started filling up. Tense moment as the first car door popped open at 07:50. We all briskly walked across the car park, like sheep, pretending we were there for general shopping. Was early in the queue (the order of which would be dispensed with as soon as we got through the door). Poker face on the whole time. Store opened at 08:02... the stress. Got in and there were loads. When the swarm had dissipated there were still a few left causing a lot of resentment against those that just casually waltzed in at 08:05, mocking my 22min investment. No ebay for me, just two excited children with unrealistic expectations of the potential contents of each little box!

Another success! Great post, hope the children enjoy them with whatever you decide to fill the drawers with.

Had a look on ebay earlier and see that it is quickly filling up with the white ones, was always going to happen with a low stock, high demand item like this, just pleased that so many have managed to get one for themselves.

Our local Aldi in Sleaford didn't have any in store apparently delay in delivery so will go early on Thursday with fingers crossed again would love a white one if not will pay £20'from Sue Ryder

Matalan also stock a white one this year, similar to the Aldi one from last year. £20.32367474-fyH5j.jpg

2pm Saturday, both stores in Kirkcaldy had 12-15 Nutcrackers and 3-4 Gingerbread ones. No White ones at either which is what I wanted.
