Get 5% back on Aldi gift cards with Sixth Continent (a reader tip!)

Ok, so, today’s Tuesday Tip comes compliments of reader Emily H. (@peaceofcake03 on Instagram).

Aldi gift card savings

She messaged me on Instagram to tell me that if you choose a Gift of Choice gift card as your redemption option on Sixth Continent (a site that offers savings on gift cards), you can then use that card to buy Aldi gift cards, and you’ll get 5% back in credits at Sixth Continent.

(Which you can then use toward your next gift card purchase.)

I had no idea about this, so, thank you, Emily!

Aldi gift card savings

Here’s how this works.

Step One:

Sign up with Sixth Continent or log into your existing account.

Buy a Gift of Choice gift card on Sixth Continent (you’ll get 5% credit back on your purchase.)

Step Two:

Wait two days for Gift of Choice gift card to be activated. Then redeem the Gift of Choice gift card for Aldi gift cards.

Step Three:

Wait for Aldi gift cards to arrive in the mail (free shipping!).  I wish they offered a digital version but alas, it’s actual cards for now.

How to save on Aldi gift cards

So, you have to be a little bit on the patient side to make this work, but hey, a 5% discount at Aldi is a happy thing.

To make this worth your while, I’d go ahead and order $100 worth of gift cards at one time.

I happened to do this when Sixth Continent was having a 30% credit back sale, which means I only paid $70 for my $100 of gift cards.

This made me very happy indeed.

And I promise I will let you know if Sixth Continent runs another such sale in the future.

Hop on over to Sixth Continent to order your Aldi gift cards, and if you run into any difficulties, do let me know.

P.S. If you are new to Sixth Continent, you can sign up through my referral link and get almost $10 off your first gift card purchase.

P.P.S. There are lots of other gift card redemption options on Gift of Choice, of course. I’m just highlighting the Aldi one because Aldi discounts are so rare!

P.P.P.S. I know that 5% back on groceries is not going to make anyone rich. But it only takes about five minutes to do the ordering, and if you order $100 of gift cards, that means you are earning $1/minute, which works out to $60/hour.  So that feels worth it to me.

I had to report Sixth Continent for fraud. I purchased two $100 gift cards for two different places and after the payment cleared my credit card I wasn't ever able to access my gift cards. I couldn't even get logged back into my account.

Were you able to get your money back? I've purchased Sixth Continent Cards before with no problems, but still can't access the Gift of Choice one. It was supposed to be activated on the 4th. I've tried numerous times since then to download it, but it never works. I've also sent requests to their customer service department and all I get is an automated email response that they're working on it. If something doesn't change by tomorrow I'm going to contact the credit card company to get the process started to handle a fraudulent charge.

Aldi savings doinds great! Now they need Walmart! But we do use Costco, so that would help us too ! I’m gonna have to share this! I have a friend who manages to get free gas by doing cards similar to these!

Heyyy, how cool to see this! I figured you knew all about it!!

My fiance and I have switched to purchasing our entire month's worth of groceries and gas budget from Sixth Continent (getting Gift of Choice certificates) and redeeming that for Aldi, Costco, and Sam's Club cards.

I've saved at LEAST $250 over the past few months doing this, which is a real boon to our budget.
