    Surely you took pics as evidence and then back to the store?

    Yeah, we went back with the receipt and got a refund. No photos required.

    They just didn't want us to say it too loudly I think. :-D

    not particularly special deals, the slim has regularly dipped below $250 if you watch the deals as they come up on OzBargain.

    I'm waiting for the V10 to dip below $500 and i'll bite. Amazon sales are getting very close to that mark. In the meantime, I never cease to be amazed by how good my $89 Kmart upright vacuum is...

    Extremely close to $500 for the V10 animal with amazon and cash rewards. Loving mine especially for the price.

    They've got the "Festive Mix" again, nuts and "stuff". I liked that last year(?)

    Don't know if it's the same all over the country by my local Aldi's (3 in regional Vic) are getting rid of all sorts of stuff half price and better. Work boots $10, rubber 4wd floor mats $6, Snatch straps for half price, kitchen utensils, all sorts of clothes both kids and adults, kids toys, books and activity books all half price.

    They have good pedigree. I've got the predecessor to that one. Mine is 50 years old this February, it belonged to my grand mother. My mum got exactly the same model at the same time and they are both still running without drama. Mum dropped her glass bowl (which can be replaced still after all these years) and broke it a few weeks ago but otherwise that's the only problem in all the time.

    Not sure how this is Aldi related though.

    Worries me not, but I can't imagine it will appease the topic faithful when we compared Kenwood parts and recipes :)

    Looks like Aldi and Coles are sticking with the cheaper milk.

    Well lets face it Woolies had to do something to combat Coles little plastic toys and telling everyone they care for the farmers is getting them publicity

    I know it’s been mentioned before, but the Rechargeable AA/AAA batteries are an absolute bargain at $5.99

    Didn’t think I could handle the heat In the cctv thread, but I bought the 8 camera bundle and installed it Sunday. $300 was a tenth the cheapest I could find for a local pro to install. But since we don’t own the place it was hard to stump up any more.

    We back onto bush and have had 2 guys with torches in the backyard (even on the deck!) at least 4 times in the last fortnight.

    They might low end, but they are giving my SO a significant reduction in stress.

    And today they put a face to the unregistered tree lopper who got aggressive with the hard sell when the SO declined.

    I really just cannot understand the massive fuss over those things.

    Nah they are still plastic toys, they just suck themselves to flat surfaces.

    It's funny that Woolies copped crap for their christmas collection thing yet Coles made Christmas toys and now sticky plastic vegies and they keep getting bigger and more popular. Now Woolies has to scream that they are increasing milk prices to "help the farmers" and hope to claw some of Cole's media attention away. Meanwhile Aldi sells their milk and other stuff without too many gimmicks and media friendly catch phrases, (although their ads are crap).
