Changes to Tesco Delivery Plan - Is There A Catch?

A friend who has a current plan with Tesco for £7.99 has received an email (see below) and is suspicious of the new deals as some are considerably cheaper than what she is paying:  She wonders whether there's a catch, does anyone know.

We wanted to let you know that we're making a few changes to our Delivery Saver plans. You'll now be able to choose from 3 new plans:
You can choose from the following plans:
 
  • Anytime Delivery from £6.99/month
    Includes same-day delivery anytime, plus same-day Click+Collect
  • Off-Peak Delivery from £3.99/month
    Get deliveries after 3pm each day, plus same-day Click+Collect
  • Anytime Click+Collect just £2.49/month
    Enjoy same-day collections


Thanks
Ms Choc

    The old 'off-peak' was anytime Tuesday-Thursday and cost £3.49 a month (6 month term). It included priority access to Easter and Christmas slots. They stopped taking new customers to that deal because of Covid. It's a small increase to their previous cheapest deal - along with very different terms, plus a small decrease to the anytime deal.

    I have since onset covid had Tesco plan and just looking I assume it is the anytime plan, I pay around £46 per six months....I am a wee bit off on actual price as have always used my club points - which are worth triple against the delivery plan.

    Couple things seem different - the max grocery basket is £40 and I have never seen same day delivery, as it would have really helped if limit was £25 per basket with a mid week order when I have been ill.

    One other thing - neighbour mentioned he had free delivery as over 65.....anyone enlighten me!!

    Its possible the neighbour was getting it due to being on the shielding list during lockdown?

    The £25 minimum order is for click and collect, for delivery it is £40 minimum.
