Receipts are more important than people think, sometimes a small piece of paper can help you avoid a lot of trouble, but it often gets tossed aside because you probably won’t need it right? Well if you are here reading this, you probably do need it, or maybe you went through this and don’t want to be in this situation again.
Whatever your specific situation is, in this article, we will help you find out if Aldi can reprint a receipt, some details on how to find it, and a few important things to consider about Aldi’s exchange policy, so let’s get started!
Can Aldi Reprint a Receipt?
Aldi can reprint a receipt if a customer needs one, however you need to provide some important information in order to find it.
Stores will hold receipts for a year after your purchase date but since you would be looking at thousands of receipts, there has to be additional information in order to find a specific one.
In order to do that, you need to provide the date and time of purchase as well as the amount spent so they can find and reprint your receipt.
A lot of the time you will find that the company has a copy of your receipt which can make the search a lot easier if you don’t remember the details.
Keep in mind that if you ask for a receipt after the 12 months that they keep it in the system, you may not be able to get it reprinted.
If you want to learn more about Aldi’s receipts and some insight into the most common reason why you would need a receipt then keep reading!
Can Stores Look Up Receipts?
Yes, stores can find a previous purchase if you used a credit card, debit card, or even a personal check because they have enough information to do so.
They can also find cash receipts, but it might not be as easy as other payment methods due to a lack of information. If you really need it though, there is still a possibility you can find it.
Aldi’s Exchange Policy
The most common reason for people wanting to use a receipt is to exchange a product because it’s expired food or some other problem.
First of all, let’s cover Aldi’s exchange policy which states that:
If you’re not completely satisfied with one of our everyday grocery items or Special Buys, you can return it for a refund or replacement within 60 days. Simply bring the product back to any ALDI store with proof of purchase (eg. receipt, bank statement, warranty card, credit card statement), ideally with the product packaging. Our friendly staff will then assist you with a refund or replacement.
As you can see it doesn’t even have to be an expired item, if a customer is not happy, Aldi will gladly accept the exchange, refund, or replacement, however, there is a keyword here, “proof”, which would mean a receipt.
What is Aldi’s Twice As Nice Guarantee?
Aldi will let you replace the product you want to return and also refund your money if you bring the product unused and give it to the Aldi store manager.
But you have to keep in mind that you need to provide a receipt for this guarantee to work.
So what happens if you can’t get your hands on the receipt?
Aldi’s Exchange Policy Without Receipt
You will still be able to return the item but you won’t be able to get a refund, which Aldi provides thanks to the Twice As Nice Guarantee.
Second, you won’t get an exchange but you will receive an Aldi Merchandise Gift Card with the same amount as the price of the item you are returning.
While you won’t be able to get a refund as well as an exchange, Aldi is still generous enough to let you use a gift card, essentially giving a refund.
However, if you can get your receipt, it will definitely be a lot better, since you’ll be able to get a refund as well as a product replacement.
If you want to get your receipt reprinted you will be able to get it if you ask for it within a year, however, if for any reason you don’t have enough information and you lost the receipt then you won’t have proof of purchase.
This means you won’t be able to get a product replacement and a refund if you want, you will instead get a gift card with the value of the returned item, which is still very generous but it could be better.
So the next time you shop at Aldi, hold on to that receipt for a little longer, you never know when you’re going to need it.
