ALDI Smokes the Competition with Summer “Cookout Kickback”

Hungry for grilling season but not ready to eat the high cost? ALDI is here to help. Following the release of the national average cost of a Fourth of July cookout, ALDI is serving up a welcome reprieve for shoppers cooking out this summer.

This Fourth of July, shoppers can get their summer cookout essentials from ALDI for just $46.86, saving $20.87 compared to the national average of $67.73 for 10 people. That’s a 30.8% discount on cookout must-haves like ground beef, pork chops, potato chips, lemonade, and more.

“Summer is meant to be spent with friends and family around the grill, and we don’t want shoppers to miss out on any of the fun,” said Scott Patton, Vice President of National Buying. “At ALDI, our fresh meat selection embodies quality and affordability, saving customers from getting burned at checkout so they can host this Fourth of July without any stress on their budget.”

ALDI Cookout Kickback

To take the heat off shoppers’ wallets, ALDI is holding the Cookout Kickback Sweepstakes, running from June 27 to July 11. One thousand lucky ALDI fans will be randomly selected to receive a Cookout Kickback gift card valued at $20.87 – the difference between an ALDI Fourth of July cookout and the national average. Gift cards can be used to stock up on all the summer BBQ essentials, including new Aldi-owned Brand products like ALDI Grass Fed Patties, Sweet Italian Brats, BBQ Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin, and Cheddar Brats.
