They should do it for free, after upping their delivery charge to £6 (every slot) leading upto Xmas.
Why!

To pay the pickers who pick your shopping nightshift rates when they come in earlier and to pay for the extra staff needed as it takes longer to get around the store as it is so busy

In my area in the west midlands all the delivery slots are full for asda and tesco, any1 know any other online grocers that may still have delivery slots available?

Interesting. We had an argument at work. Do Sainsbury´s pick from the supermarket "shop floor" or from a warehouse like Ocado. For that matter does anyone know how ASda do it?

If the charge was increased on a permanent basis, you would have a gripe. But I would pay even more to avoid the manic free for all, in every supermarket in the 48hrs before Xmas...and that's without the fight for a car park space!

The shop floor, normally starts at 6am and finishes around 10am- 12pm ish.
You pick upto 6 orders at the same time for a section(frozen, wine&spirits, etc) for about 10 - 30mins. Store it, then repeat :thumbsup:

There's still a £5 off a £50 spend code that works for Tesco. Used it online last night to order my shopping at Tesco. Wasn't willing to pay £6 for delivery.

All slots were booked apart from a few slots on Monday 21st. Asda and Sainsburys were both booked solid!

Thanks. At least you don´t have to fight the other shoppers. Good luck. Personally I think anything up to $5 is a bargain allowing for my time, petrol and the stress factor. Thanks for doing such useful work.

The extra fee should go to the staff for all the c**p they have to deal with at this time of year

Griffinm7 do hve the code - haven't found one for ages.
#12
this code worked for me XXCRDJ ...try it. Got £5 off...and delivery charge was only £2.50
(thanks to cbryanp)
#13
Doubt i will need to eat between xmas and new year ha !
#14
I have a £7.50 off £50 spend (voucher that came with clubcard vouchers) code XX2NBR. Hopefully it will work for you exp 03/01/10
#15
There is quite a bit of labour involved in picking, packing and delivering an order. £2.50 is an absolute bargain especially if you can get a discount on your basket.
#16
Utter tosh!!! Money grabbing b******s!! Too many people fall for this money grabbing company...why is that? I dont get it when its so simple to see through their tricks and plans.

Thanks :)

The cost per order may have gone up (pre-xmas) but the average spend has massively increased too! Strategically placed multibuys and lack of BOGOF offers will mean Mr. T will have a happy Xmas no matter what! :santa: This is to fill the void when there's nobody at Tesco HQ altering the offerage and everbody has too much food in the house! ;-)

Can you order your shopping way in advance? Like if I ordered on Monday for delivery on Sunday would they take the money out straight away or the day it is despatched?

They don't charge your card until it actually goes through the checkout (on the day of your delivery) so you can book ahead :-D

Your order total remains as a guide and is affected by multibuy discounts and out of stock items so they can't charge it until they know exactly what has gone through the till.

They do however do a pre-authorisation check of the card which takes the form of a £2 debit which is ringfenced until the full order is sent. This occurs when the order is placed.

What a load of tosh, another way for Mr T to exploit the general consumer.

have you used the online form to fill out a complaint about your order? i had a yoghurt that was damaged in transit, one item substituted when i specified no subs and one other issue. I used the online form and got a call back within 2 days and they refunded my money straight to my card.

Last time i sent a general email into customer services, it took several days for them to respond.

Thanks:-D, only a temporary job for me though.
It was great today, started at 4am and the store didn't open until 10am, unfortunately the store opens at 6am tomorrow :whistling:

I think online delivery is fantastic, paying a small fee for somebody else to go through the hassle of shopping. Although if your ordering for christmas, I wouldn't get a delivery on christmas eve just incase there is a **** up.
