  • I just went to order my shop as I am poorly at the moment, and was stunned at the hike in the delivery cost. Instead I have gone to Sainsburys who have a standard £5 charge across the board, and if you spend £70 on a Tues, Wed or Thurs delivery the cost is reduced to £2.50

    The general consensus between family, friends and colleagues at the moment is just how dear the weekly food shop has become. Despite buying pretty much the same things each month we are finding it is costing us considerably more
  • Just looked inmy area - you can still get delic=very for 3.99 on tues + wed, but thurs is now 4.50 - 4.99 and mon is 4.99 and sat/sun is 6.75. Good thing I decided to not use them anymore.....

    for discount codes. You can usually get at least a fiver off your shopping, often more. You can bank extra codes you can't use at the time, and open new accounts to use those really good codes (10 or 15 pounds) more than once!

    I've never shopped online. The minimum order is way too big for one person living in a bedsit (you can only stockpile so many loo rolls before you can't get around your room).

    And, I like to rummage for the bargains. And see new stuff.
    Not sure where you've been looking online but Tesco's doesn't have a minimum order. Sainsbury's is £25 and Ocado varies between £40 - £95 especially if you want to use their vouchers. Don't know about Asda as they don't deliver to my area.

    I've noticed that Tesco deliveries tend to be more expensive on the weekend £5.99. Midweek is usually £3.99 in my area.

    I make an on-line order once every 6 weeks and just get the heavy staples - tins, bottles, washing powder etc etc to save carrying. We have a secure garage so space to store stuff now we have cleared the clutter!
    I always order for the latest evening delivery - and always (so far, anyway!) have had a phone call much earlier from the driver to ask if he can deliver sooner.... have not had to pay the extra charge!
    Did once try to increase my green points by not using the bags, but sadly their system assumes one line on the order = 1 item when it is actually 10 tins of beans etc. Never again!
    I can cook and sew, make flowers grow.
  • Even if I can’t get a delivery freebie I’m still happy to pay the delivery charge. Why:-

    a) My impulse buying is eradicated. It can really mount up (I’m weak).
    b) My supermarkets are a round trip of about ½ a gallon of fuel away anyway (About 2.20 at current prices) which is a partial offset.
    c) As I’ve mentioned in other posts, it also keeps me from harming others. You know, the ones who have a conversation in the middle of the aisle with their trolleys forming a kind of road block. Grrr!!!!
    £5.99 Delivery vs. £700 legal fees plus 3 months suspended … No contest.
    My eyes! The goggles do nothing!

  • When I went online to book our slot for next week, the Saturday 4-6pm slot was showing as £0.59! Obviously a typo but I booked it anyway. Anyone know if they'll honour it or charge me the full price (£5.99 presumably)?
