Starting this Saturday 17th of December, Aldi is selling a 55-inch Ultra HD LED 4K TV for less than $500. That's not a typo.
This just might be worth lining up outside the store for (and you might have to, to get your hands on one).
It's a deal. It's a steal. It's the sale of the f**king century.
Here we are, thinking about 5G when there are still 3G-only plans out there. Such is the case currently for Aldi, which resells Telstra's 3G — though not for much longer. Come 28 April, all customers will have their service 4G-enabled, with new plans to boot.
Screw the fact that 4K content is still hard to come by. The panels themselves are still freaking gorgeous when upscaled. Kogan's $999 4K TV had previously been the cheapest way to get in on the high-resolution dream, but now Aldi has skin in the game, selling a 4K TV for just $800.
A few months back ALDI had a pretty solid deal going for its 9-inch Onix tablet, and for one day in December, it'll be offering something just as enticing — a 10.1-inch Onix running Android 4.4 for $99.
Perhaps you're not willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a tablet, or you only need a basic gadget without all the fancy bells and whistles. Fortunately, there are many companies happy to sell you a such a device at the right price, though you might not expect one of those companies to be ALDI. Well, it is.
Aldi's own low-cost pre-paid mobile offerings have launched, and we have everything you need to know about the new service. In light of the recent ispONE drama taking down Kogan Mobile, it might be a good idea to look at your options.
Coffee might as well be a religion for some people. Everyday, all at the same time, coffee-worshippers line up to pay their tithe and receive a cup full of arabica blessings to start them on their day. So how will the hyper-caffeinated fanatics, who seem to spend quite a lot on shiny home shrines dedicated to the gods of the blessed bean, respond to the latest ultra-cheap alternative from ALDI? Is it still fanaticism if it's cheap?
We kicked off our Fitmodo Challenge on Friday, where we use and test various fitness gadgets to gauge how much we're burning. A key metric you'll need to keep an eye on is your heart rate. ALDI's got you covered for a heart rate monitor that won't break the bank.
ALDI's special buy sale category this Saturday is heavy on tech, with laptops, MP3 players and TVs all on the list. We've filtered through what's on offer to identify what's a good deal, what's average and what's worth avoiding.
Got less than $100 in the Gadget kitty right now? You've got your choice of gadgets today and tomorrow. First up, Kogan's selling off its USB recording set digital set top box for $29 as a Friday special. You could plug that set box into the tiny but inexpensive Dick Smith 15-inch $99 TV. If mobile's more your thing, Gus over at Lifehacker notes that Aldi's got the Huawei Ideos U8150 on sale tomorrow for $59.99, including $35 worth of call credit.
Oops. Those who picked up Aldi's $99 Fission 4-in-1 hard drive/DVD drive/card reader combo may have got more than they bargained for. Apparently a small number were sold with malware yesterday, and though free AV software (or a clean format) will nix the issue, Aldi will give a full refund if you return it to the store of purchase.
