    Is that the correct price for chicken breasts? I have never seen it that low at Aldi.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      You are right – thanks for catching that!!! It SHOULD have rang up at $5.39, which is the usual price at my Aldi for a 3-lb bag. I don’t have my receipt anymore, so I’m assuming it is a typo on my part when I entered my receipt. I DO know the total amount of $86 is correct, so I’ll have to go back and do the math to see if it actually rang up at $1.39 by some fluke thing!

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      It looks like it DID ring up for $1.39, but that’s not the price it should have rang up at. I usually buy a bag of chicken every week, so I’ll definitely keep an eye on my receipt this next week!
