Does Aldi Accept Food Stamps & SNAP?
Yes, Aldi will accept SNAP and other forms of food stamps when trying to purchase their groceries.
Aldi surprisingly didn’t accept credit cards as payment until 2016. Before that Aldi stores only took cash and debit cards, not even allowing checks.
Aldi US’s CEO Jason Hart commented at the time of the payment upgrade, stating, “We care about being able to make our customers’ shopping experiences simpler and better…and offering them the convenience of using their credit cards will help us do just that.”
Though this is probably true. We suspect the main reason for the switch was the lost sales they were potentially missing out on due to their short list of acceptable payment methods.
