KEEP Valentine’s Day costs under control this year with Aldi’s super affordable dozen red roses.
The discounter is selling bunches of twelve red roses all for £1.99 – that works out at just 17p a bloom.
The bouquets go on sale from February 11, meaning there’s plenty of time to surprise your loved ones.
Unfortunately, they’re only available in store, so you can’t have them delivered if you live apart.
They’re probably not the best choice for a secret Valentine either, as you’ll need to deliver them in person.
But if you’re seeing your other half on February 14, these could be the perfect flowers to sweep them of their feet – without breaking the bank.
The discounter has more than 830 stores across the UK. You can find your nearest one using its locator tool.
Aldi says it’s bunch is the cheapest dozen red roses available.
We’ve looked online, and we can’t see a cheaper bunch available at the moment.
What happens if you’re not happy with your flowers?
IF the flowers you’ve ordered online arrive in a sorry state, there might be something you can do about it.
Consumer group Which? advises you take the following steps to get a refund:
- Take a picture as evidence of poor condition or damage to your flowers as this will help support your complaint.
- If a loved one or friend has sent you flowers that have arrived in a poor condition or late, make sure you tell them. Otherwise the retailer may say they can’t access the order information and won’t resolve the problem.
- If you order a specific number of flowers but fewer than this amount are delivered to you, you’re entitled to a partial refund for the missing flowers.
The next best deal we could find online was a bunch of ten roses for £2.50 at Sainsbury’s.
You’re not guaranteed red, Sainsbury’s says that the colour can vary from yellow, orange, white, red, cerise or pink.
The supermarket says that its blooms are guarantees to last for at least seven days.
The Sun has asked Aldi how long its slightly cheaper flowers will cost, and will update this story when we know.
Lidl, Tesco and Asda haven’t released their roses prices yet, so it’s possible Aldi could still be beaten on price in the run up to the big day.
Aldi is also selling heart-shaped chicken nuggets this Valentine’s Day.
