We've price matched Aldi on hundreds of Tesco and branded products that are important to you. Look out for the 'Aldi Price Match' bubble in-store or fill your basket online!
What products do we match?We only match against comparable products at Aldi.
What prices do we check?We check prices in Aldi stores twice weekly. The stores we check are located in England, Wales and Scotland. Aldi do not have stores in Northern Ireland.
What price do you match?We sometimes find that Aldi sell a product at different prices in different stores. When this happens we match the price we find most often. In the event that we find two different prices in an equal number of stores, we match to the lower price found. We do not match against any promotional prices in Aldi stores. Pro-rata Aldi price matched considering the product’s size.
Where can I find the price-matched products?The products we match will vary by week. They can be found in selected larger stores but not in Express stores or in NI stores. Our products’ availability varies by store. All products are subject to availability.tesco.com/gro…tch

If people still think Aldi & Lidl are cheaper than Tesco then they haven't visited Tesco for 8 years.
They haven't got rid of value ranges, they just rebranded the value products. Just new labels.
Went Tesco other day for a change. Put a few things in the trolley and realised just on first few things like chicken breasts and mince aldi are much cheaper? I ended up putting it all back and going across to Aldi. I find Aldi are a lot cheaper and once you’ve done a trolley full the savings are great. Although I do agree Tesco has gone cheaper over the years with the new brands like miss molly and hearty food co x
We'll match some of their prices, some of the time, when we feel like it. Whoop-de-do. (edited)
I think in fairness there are a fair few product lines between Aldi and Lidl that do represent good value compared to the traditional supermarkets. I could probably list you 10 products that are 20% cheaper - but they tend to be lower in price so you're only talking 5p or 10p. And I could also list you 10 products that are cheaper in the traditional supermarkets.
I could also list you 100s of products that you just simply cannot buy from Lidl or Aldi because of the lack of choice.
Ok. To test this theory of yours please list 10 food products that you buy from Aldi with their weights/measurements & price. Then I will check if you are correct. Obviously you will have to list first because Aldi do not show all their prices online. (edited)
A guy on YouTube did a video comparing shops as when he did limited budget videos he's shop at ASDA and everyone in the comments would be saying he should use Aldi or Lidl.
It ended up being
Asda, Aldi, Tesco, Lidl and Morrisons in the top 5 cheapest for the shopping list he made
Precisely. These arguments that state Aldi & Lidl are cheaper is all rubbish. The argument is 10-15 years old.
I am still awaiting one person to post 10 or so products that are "20% cheaper" but it doesn't exist.
OK so I found some free time at work to make a list of 10 products from Aldi and similar products from Tesco. These are genuinely the first 10 items that came to mind from the weekly shopping that I do. I didn't look for products that could be cheaper in Aldi. I had to compare them to Tesco's own brand when available and as you probably know its quality is not always the best. For example in my opinion Aldi's nappies are better quality than Pampers and other expensive brands. But even Tesco's nappies are more expensive. Obviously size of packaging is not always the same so I've also included price per unit.
1. Ashfield Farm Chicken Drumsticks 1kg @ £1.59
Tesco British Chicken Drumsticks 1kg @ £2
2. Spreadable Norpak 500G @ £1.79 - £3.58/kg
Tesco Butterpak Salted Spreadable 500G @ £2.20 - £4.40/kg
3. Mild Block Cheddar 900G @ £3.99 - £4.43/kg
Tesco British Medium Cheddar Cheese 460G @ £2.30 - £5/kg
4. Mamia Ultra Dry Size 4 - 84 Nappies @ £4.39 - £0.05/nappy
Fred & Flo 44 Ultra Dry Nappies Size 4+ @ £2.99 - £0.07/nappy
5. Triple Distilled Vodka 1L @ £14.19
Tesco Imperial Vodka 1L @ £15
6. Frozen Chicken Breast Fillets 1kg @ £3.50
Frozen Tesco Chicken Breast Fillet 1Kg @ £5.50
7. Bourbon Cream Biscuit 200g @ £0.22 - 11p/100g
Tesco Bourbon Creams Biscuits 296G @ £0.45 - £0.15/100g
8. Tomato Ketchup 560g @ £0.45 - £0.08/100g
Tesco Top Down Tomato Ketchup 550G @ £0.65 - £0.12/100g
9. Fruit & Fibre 750g @ £1.19 - £15.9/100g
Tesco Fruit & Fibre Cereal 750g @ £1.45 - £0.19/100g
10. Biscuit And Yogurt Split Pot 6pack 6 x 135g @ £1.69 - 20.9p/100g
Muller Corner Yogurt Vanilla Chocolate Balls Banana Flakes 6X130g @ £3 - £39p/100g
As you can see in some instances the price difference isn't that big, but out of 10 products Aldi was cheaper, so when you buy 100 products saving will be massive, maybe even more than 20%
Just admit that Aldi is cheaper than Tesco and our conversation will be over.
I personally find the quality of Lidl's meat put's the big supers to shame so would buy there's even if it wasn't significantly cheaper too.
They do still exist they have just been rebranded to get away from the Tesco value stigma that was there. Miss mollys and hearty food co as mentioned above are tesco value in a nicer pack.. there are many more in stores across a wide range, springforce toilet roll and Stockwell company fizzy drinks are another 2 I can of.
Not the same quality and Idk if it's just because my local is a small shop not a real supermarket but everything is so expensive compared to other shops
Let's say all the store branded products from every store was the exact same price and everyone priced matched eachother
They aren't going to be the same quality
Aldi meat for example is much more superior than say Asda, cheaper too
Edit: Lidl too, Apparently M&S, Aldi, Lidl use the same supplier, M&S is like a Aldi but 2x the price for the rich people (edited)
Yes, I have a couple of questions.
Why did you produce a price comparison @ Tesco? That defeats the object because you have targeted what you want to achieve & even not put in the correct comparison.
I asked you (to make the task fair) to just list 10 products you buy at lidl & there cost.
For example you list mild cheese & compare it to medium cheese. You cannot compare them. Do you see what I mean?
I did a price comparison because you said that Aldi isn't cheaper then Tesco.
Tesco don't sell mild cheese so medium was the only closest option. Surely it means the same thing.
Appreciate the effort there but Tesco do sell mild cheese.
Tesco AND branded items...
Miss Molly and Hearty Foods and Whatever other made up brands are all just rebranded Tesco products but instead of bland packaging they made it like a brand because people are fuzzy/brand slaves but last time I've heard it's the exact same food just in new packaging and with a higher price tag, Aldi use the same supplier as Marks and Spencer's I remember a thing on the news where they accidentally sent Aldi meat to Marks and Spencer's since it's the same product and supplier just a different sticker (edited)
No they just renamed it... it’s cheap food!
Precisely, they renamed it because they found out most of their shoppers didn't want to pick up cheap food that said "VALUE" on it in big red & blue stripes on it. The same foods exist but with a prettier label.
The things I buy from Aldi are there steak cut chips, regular and crinkle cut I think all these are more expensive in both Tesco or Asda Vs Aldi, also the fries.
Plus Aldis in my opinion taste better have larger sized peices.
Lidl bread the 49p one tastes better than Aldis and Asda and also tescos,
The margarine 1kg tub is 1.25 in Aldi again think this is a better quality than the stuff in Tesco and Asda. Also the cereals in Aldi are quite decent my kids eat them I don't like cereals but the ones I got from Tesco cheapest ones they didn't it said they taste soggy and like cardboard seem like they haven't been cooked.
The fizzy drinks seem to be cheaper and taste nicer aswell.
One thing I have noticed is Aldi have increased there prices in fruit and vegetables and the quality has gone down aswell.
I don't think Aldi will be 20%. Cheaper I don't buy 10 things from Aldi but these are the things I usually buy from Aldi.
1kg margarine £1.25, 1.5kg regular chips 0.90p,
1.5kg steak cut chips £1.05
Crinkle 1.5kg crinkle cut £1.05 note these 2 have just gone up by 5p in last week or so not too happy about that.
Nappies size 3 98 pack £4.39
Mixed Peppers I can't remember exact price and weight but I think it's 700g and it usually around £1.70 per kg. There 3 pack peppers are 99p but that's about standard even in lidl And Asda.
There 800g bread loaf is 36p for the cheapest one and 2nd up is .49p which is really decent the cheapest one isn't really comparable too the branded stuff though.
I don't buy meats from supermarkets so can't really help with your comparison there.
To prove you wrong I will actually take some time (tomorrow) and write you a list of products that I frequently buy from Aldi and how much they cost with similar products in Tesco and their price. These would have to be Tesco's own brand items (which are nothing like Aldi's quality) because branded products would be 50%-100% more expensive than Aldi.
I used to shop in Tesco and still do for items that I can't buy in Aldi, but I was shocked how much more my money can buy in Aldi than in Tesco.
That would be lovely if you would spend the time to do that.
It's obvious what Tesco have done here. They've taken their lowest quality brand and matched it to Aldi's own brand. Your Aldi shop will be much cheaper probably and I'd agree, I'd rather get Aldi goods but none are within a reasonable walking distance so this price match promo is nice for however long it lasts.
I don't think that is what Tesco are doing. What I think they are doing is saying unbranded Tesco prices are as cheap as Aldi.
Aldi keeps releasing adverts based on a saving of Tesco products BUT Aldi compare their generic brands with Tesco named/premium brands.
I know what you did. You just defeated the object of the task.
After a proper search I have found the Tesco Mild Cheese and it's exactly the same price as the Medium cheese £5/kg
I shop in both, I have stores within five minutes of each other.
Tesco's "value" range. Also available in mild
Tesco Value £4.48/kg vs Aldi £4.43/kg
Aldi still wins
My weekly shop is one of the Germans AND one of the big supers, usually delivered and specifically targeting offers on favourites which often make them cheaper than the german knock offs too, eg from @SpyJoe 's list above the 12 for £3 individual Muller Corner offer is back which makes them cheaper than Aldi and Lidl's own, they are much nicer and you can pick and mix from loads of flavours. Meat, as already discussed is cheaper and better quality at the Germans and I particularly like Lidl's knock off Hagen Daaz mini pots and basic granola, their veg that they make a deal about is pretty average to poor though.
If the stuff you genuinely like is also cheaper then it's win:win otherwise false economy (edited)
Or people don't care about brands
Its not pennies its a large percentage of your shopping bill so could be hundreds a year
..or people are on low income so they need to budget
It does indeed, it was more in response to your "proper search" for Tesco cheese, completely ignoring the cheaper options.
