Insane ALDI suitcase sale is back!

Insane ALDI suitcase sale is back!

Shoppers can expect to set their alarm early this Saturday, as ALDI is bringing its travel-themed Special Buys sale to stores near you.

This week’s offerings include a range of luggage and travel gear at competitive prices.

Some of the main highlights come from the Skylite luggage collection. The discount supermarket’s hard-shell polypropylene options come in at $79.99 for the bigger 76cm model, and $49.99 for the carry-on. When empty, the cases weigh just 4.3kg and 2.5kg respectively.

Another steal is the Ultra Light set, which is priced at $89.99 and includes two cases weighing 2.8kg and 2.5kg each.

All the cases in the Skylite collection come with a TSA lock.

If past reviews are anything to go by, the luggage range is a great buy. 

Last year, consumer group CHOICE gave ALDI’s $40 Skylite 56cm Spinner Carry On a score of 86 per cent with a perfect mark in the lift and drop test. This was on par with the Samsonite 72 Hours DLX 78cm Spinner, which scored 87 per cent but came in at a whopping price of $479.

Apart from suitcases, the German retailer is bringing back its popular set of noise cancelling headphones for $39.99. The Bauhn headphones come with a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts up to 20 hours and Bluetooth connectivity that enables wireless use.

“They are highly effective, especially taking into account the price,” a shopper wrote on productreview.com.au. “Also, they have quality features you wouldn’t expect at the price … I have found them to be comfortable to wear on long flights. Well worth considering, especially for the budget conscious.”

ALDI will also sell digital suitcase scales for $9.99, a trolley backpack for $39.99, a rolling duffle bag for $24.99 and a universal travel adaptor kit for $19.99.

There will also be a $29.99 travel security pack containing a security waist pouch, two luggage tags, a security wrap and a passport organiser in assorted colours and designs.
