I shop at Aldi's several times per month. Their return guarantee is "100% return guarantee, they will refund double your purchase price AND replace the item." This is apparently false.
In the few years I've shopped there, only 3 times did I need to return a food item that was defective or unsafe. Each time, I was only refunded the original purchase price (not double) and I was not offered a replacement item. I didn't want to 'ask' for this guarantee, since I felt it was embarrassing. But here's the point: They should not be advertising, stating, and promising a "100% double money back guarantee" if it's not followed or never intended to be implemented.
That's just false advertising. What's the point of promising something and offering it, if you're never offer it? It just seems deceptive to me. Forget the double money and replacement, just refund the original price and the gas I had to use to get to the store to return items that had 1.) bird *** in it, 2.) another that was opened and items missing, and 3.) another that had rotten items concealed!
It's just annoying to be offered something that they have no intention of honoring. To their credit though, I always got a prompt refund.
Just wish they'd stop dangling that "100% double guarantee" promise. Makes you feel lied to.
