Oddly enough Lidl in France does accept credit cards (UK issued ones at that)!

Going to Lidl for the first time ever next week. Is the policy on credit cards still the same?

It seems to me that Lidls not as great as it used to be. It was all the rage untill the .99p and poundlands opened up where you can buy most of the tinned and packeted food and toileteries etc. much cheaper. I noticed a netto,which is the same thing, that has closed down recently.

P.s. Palacegirl, love the new avatar, have you given up on the football team?

Their parmesan cheese,olive oil and packaged salami, prosciutto, etc are excellent. Their dishwasher tabs are the cheapest around. Avoid their washing powder and never, never, ever buy their twin blade razors.

Why??????I've been using them for years! Are you putting them in the right way? <_<

You can use your debit card at Lidl.

Actually they don't accept Mastercard debit cards (eg issued by Metro Bank).

They don't provide shopping baskets either, which is particularly annoying if you only pop in for a few things.

Which? voted their washing powder the most effective one around (and Aldi dishwasher tablets). I have been using it ever since - as good as any of the major brands and super market own brands. But i do agree with you, Fang, parmesan, olive oil, cured meats, cheeses and olives are all great value. It does mean lots of going to different shops though! So probably what I save on grocery shopping I spend on petrol!

Well, silly as it sounds, the introduction of shopping baskets is something that might make me go more often. Thanks for the heads up.
