Apple Pay Coming to Nearly 1,700 ALDI Grocery Stores Across United States

ALDI today announced it will now accept all forms of contactless payments, including Apple Pay, at all of its nearly 1,700 stores in the United States.

Shoppers can pay for their groceries by tapping their contactless-enabled bank card, smartphone or other wearable device on a payment terminal. Contactless payments are safe and secure, and have the same protection as making a payment with your PIN.
Some other grocery stores that accept Apple Pay in the United States include select Giant Food, Wegmans, BI-LO, Food Lion, Save Mart, Shop 'n Save, Trader Joe's, Winn-Dixie, Whole Foods, and United Supermarkets locations.

Apple's financial chief Luca Maestri recently said Apple Pay is by far the number one NFC-based payment service on mobile devices, with nearly 90 percent of all transactions globally—three out of four happen outside the United States.

Isn't Apple Pay availability at the retail level just a matter of the store having a tap to pay point of sale terminal?

Tap to pay was widely implemented here before Apple Pay, which just benefited from the existing infrastructure.

I'm assuming debit only though? Last (and only time) I was in an ALDIs they wouldn't accept MasterCard.

ALDI accepts credit cards now. You still need a quarter to rent a shopping cart.

I love shopping at ALDI. Their prices are very low (often half or less that what I'd pay for name brand products at a regular grocery chain). I like their quality also.

It’s not a rent, it’s a pawn.

They do this for two reason, they don't have to pay someone to pick up the carts in the parking lot and it reduces people stealing them. They know if you don't take the cart back, someone else will to get the quarter.

Been waiting on Kroger to add this for a while. We actually have two really nice Aldi stores here that I’ve never tried. Sounds like it’s time to give them a shot!


pack a Quarter...

The Aldi by me already has Apple Pay. So convenient. I can leave my wallet at home.

Yea until the contactless payment portion of the terminal is broken....in which you don’t find out about until you go to pay. Embarrassing. I had to hold up the line and have a manager come over to assist.

I keep my wallet on me at all times because of this incident. As they say, “don’t leave home without it!”

Good point. I had that happen at BJ’s once. Taking a backup card is a good idea, as well as a quarter for the cart.

Yea it’s frustrating I can’t leave my wallet at home like Apple envisions. One day....
