ALDI’S must-have inflatable hot tub is returning in a few weeks time.

The hot tub will be available to pre-order online from August 15.
The release date means you should get it just in time for the bank holiday heatwave, so you’ll be able to chill out and make the most of the last weeks of summer in your new bargain buy.
It’s not being released in-stores though, so you won’t be able to head to your local Aldi to find the Specialbuy.
That means you’ll have to factor in the extra £3.95 for delivery too.
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that’ll check prices for you – so don’t be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
The hot tub is equipped with 135 air jets and it has water conditioning and automatic heating to set your dip to the perfect temperature.
It’s big enough for four adults, and it includes two headrests, filter cartridges, a ground cloth and a lockable insulated cover.
You will have to buy chemicals to keep the water fresh separately though, and don’t forget to budget for the cost of running it on top.
We’ve rounded up how much running a tub can cost as it can depend on where it’s located and how much you already pay for electricity.
The good news is, Aldi will also be selling Spa Pool chemicals for £19.99, and a maintenance kit to keep your new tub fresh, but you’ll have to factor in an extra £12.99 to buy the kit to keep the tub in top condition.
When thinking about splashing out on the tub though, it’s always best to shop around first, as you might find a better deal elsewhere, and you could save yourself some extra pounds.
Morrisons is selling a Lay-Z Spa hot tub for £275 which is £75 cheaper than Aldi’s.
It’s not quite as powerful though and it’s only available in stores, so you won’t be able to buy it online and get it delivered.
That means availability will depend on your local store and it could be limited, but Morrisons told The Sun previously that additional stock is due to arrive at stores imminently.
NetWorlSports is selling a Cosy Spa hot tub for £300, £50 cheaper than Aldi’s.
The hot tub has already been reduced down from £510, so shoppers will be able to save over £200 on its full price.
It can reach 42°C and has 130 soothing and massaging air jets.
You can also pick up a Miami hot tub from B&Q for only £330, which will save you £20 compared to Aldi’s price.
This one only has 81 air jets, but it does have an energy saving timer to pre-set the water heating which could save you money on bills in the long run.
It’s also fast and easy to setup as it inflates using the spa’s pump.
Aldi has a massive summer sale on right now though that you can cash in on – you can get up to 50% off electronics and toys.
But if you’re looking to deck out the rest of your garden, the supermarket is selling a six-piece furniture set that’s £20 cheaper than House of Fraser and Sports Direct too.
There’s even a children’s garden range including sun lounger and picnic bench that the store has launched as well.
