    Mysupermarket is a good comparison site - put your "basket" in and it tells you which is cheapest, then transfers the order. I much prefer their website too.

    That's interesting. Would you not then need to have an account with each supermarket?

    Cannot carry heavy shopping-use Ocado-no problems to date-drivers take shopping into house,always polite -money back off carrier bags returned and if my shopping could have been bought cheaper at T's get refunded the difference-but the main reason for shopping with them the variety of vegan food x

    Yes, you still need to have the accounts, but MySupermarket stores your login details. You can do everything but pay on that site. Choose delivery slots etc, you can sort ite,s by price, or price per unit, making sure you get the best value.

    I have Asda, tesco, sainsburys and Morrisons accounts (I'm not loyal!) and virtually "go" wherever the deals are.

    So you do the complete shop on mysupermarket, it tells you which items could be swapped for better value (poss cheaper, or multi-buys), tell you which supermarket is lowest cost for the items you've chosen and then sends the list to whichever you decide to buy from. You then pay directly on the supermarket website.

    It's a lot simpler than it sounds.

    I have had ocado for a while now and I like the way they tell you the minimum life of an item on the website.
    I buy their offers and try to stick to a meal plan that helps with what to buy. They often give me free gifts and samples. They don't have a shop its a warehouse, rarely do they substitute or miss items and on delivery the receipt is ordered into fridge, cupboard, freezer etc, along with use by dates. They price match Tesco.
    I pay£5 delivery per month and have Saturday am deliveries. Minimum£40 spend.
    The ap is really handy, I can add items easily up to late the previous evening. If there's ever anything wrong with the order a quick tap of the ap and I can request a refund.
    Tonight encouraged by an offer I had a waitrose delivery, I was a bit disappointed, not good dates at all.
    Back to ocado for me.

    Ocado is my favourite. If an item is damaged, short dated or any other problem, I just pop on the website and get a refund organised. I get occasional free items, the other week a halal lasagne. I left it for other members of the family when I was out. This week a bag of special flour.

    Flash sales provide the opportunity to have some luxury meat (and ordinary) meat at a good price, up to 40% off, so I get a few things for the freezer. These must be overstocks, as they usually have good dates on them.

    I use Morrisons for my online shopping and also when we fill up the cars - then we get the points and the other day I managed to get £10 off my online shop!! The offers are good too and I've taken to buying in bulk and storing in the freezer to save more money. I used to use Tescos but they are more expensive now.

    Is Ocado not just in England? I don't know anything about it. :(
