I have been on the Tesco Delivery Saver for a while now but have looked deeper into this service. According to the rules you need to make sure your checkout is over £40 for free delivery. However this rule applies to anyone. So if you spend over £40 a week on groceries every week,  the delivery saver fee isn't worth it. I can't see what Tesco are really offering.  I know we get priority booking for Easter/Xmas etc but is it worth shelling out £72 a year just for that. If Tesco said that Delivery Saver users could get free delivery no matter how much is in the basket it would be more beneficial.
What do other people think?

    I'd definitely go for a delivery pass if the minimum spend was lower.

    Tesco don't offer free delivery over £40 for non pass holders, 1 hour slots are £4.50 and 4 hour slots (1 hour confirmed on day) £3.

    They do have a £40 minimum spend otherwise the surcharge is £4. 

    So depends on how many deliveries you have each month.

    We have had it for a few years now and I wouldn’t be without it. It’s been invaluable during lockdown.
    It saves me so much time and money. You can add/ subtract items up to midnight the night before, it keeps me in check from being tempted to buy too many unhealthy things, and we normally get everything  we ask for , and if we aren’t happy with a substitution you pretty much get your refund immediately.
    I have never had problems with fruit/veg etc, it’s always been good quality.
    I hate food shopping, I find online shopping so much easier.I just make sure my weekly shop is always over £40, not hard to do! and that makes each delivery about £1.70, though I often add an extra one in if we need stuff unexpectedly.

    You can pay for the delivery saver with clubcard points, at 3x their cash value. I'm on the old, currently unavailable to new customers midweek one which costs me £7.50 in clubcard points every six months. So the regular anytime pass is £16 in vouchers for six months. Much much cheaper than paying per shop - you'd only need four shops in six months to save.

    I signed up on Thursday for the anytime pass, using Clubcard vouchers. I've been having regular deliveries from Tesco for over a year now and had no major problems, despite 2 house moves during lockdown, when they were an absolute lifeline. Well worth it for us.
