There’s a company offering to pay you £30 an hour to shop in the magical ‘middle aisles’ at budget supermarkets Aldi and Lidl, and it sounds like the best thing ever.
Whilst most come for affordable and fresh food, it’s these lauded intersections that create the most excitement for shoppers – rammed full of bargain items that you want, but don’t necessarily need.
But now, you can have it all – and get paid for the pleasure of it too.
Whether it’s bluetooth speakers, hedge trimmers, exotic meats, or literally anything else, the middle aisles are home to everything you couldn’t ever think of, but you somehow convince yourself you need once you’re in there.
Over the past couple of months, the middle aisles have been home to a new wave of products, and some have been so popular, they’ve sold-out in stores across the UK.
With stock so short, some people have been missing out on product drops too.
So, one discount and coupon company, WeThrift, has decided to do something about that by enlisting the help of some “savvy shoppers” and is now recruiting three members of the public for the dream job of ‘Middle Aisle Shopper’ who will be tasked with tracking-down and buying the latest must-have bargains from Lidl and Aldi, so that customers who weren’t able to buy them locally in store, can purchase them online via its site for the same price.
Not only is WeThrift actually paying the chosen candidates £30 an hour on a PAYG basis, each ‘Middle Aisle Shopper’ will also be given £500 to spend on items.
In its description for the role, WeThrift says the main aim of each shopper is “to ensure that consumers from other areas of the UK can purchase limited-edition products at the same price seen in the likes of Lidl and Aldi, if their local store sells out, via the WeThrift website.”
Reckon you’ve got what it takes then? Fancy applying for the role of ‘Middle Aisle Shopper’? WeThrift is asking that all applicants be:
- Able to work flexibly and remotely on a freelance basis.
- Over 18 years of age.
- Have access to a computer or smartphone.
- Able to travel to at least one Lidl and Aldi store.
