ASDA Home Delivery - scam

Had groceries delivered from ASDA yesterday, luckily I checked the final price on the list the driver handed to me as the price had almost doubled from the quoted price at the time of ordering.

ASDA should not be allowed to display special offers online then not honour that price when delivered, I'm a bit of a special offer shopper OOOh pizza for £1? I'll have 3. When these turned up they were £3 each, this is just one example.

Tesco have dates on their special offers online so if you put something in your basket and your delivery date is outside the offer range it will be added at full price <<< fair!

What's the point of adding prices if that's not what they're going to charge? May as well just leave out prices and put Final Total: Whatever we shaft you for.

Total and utter scam.

Thing is you agreed to the t & cs, which if im not mistaken state 'you will be charged the price in store on the day of you're delivery'

Tbf it wouldn't be too much hassle or cost to them to charge you what the price was when you ordered, but then people would moan if the price decreased on the day of delivery, they can't really win

I have been in touch with them by email the response was basically..tough.

They can win, they can do what I stated in the opening post which is to implement the Tesco system of a date range for special offers. Not hard.

Asda have ragu for 40p but it is unavailable online.

What a scam. Just a trick to get you in your car, so you need to buy petrol while you're there.

That doesn't sound right, how the heck are you supposed to know what you're paying on your delivery day?

I wonder if trading standards would be interested?

It clearly states when the offer is valid from and the offers ends when they are taken off the site! Why not try calling Asda to resolve this, they will assist instead of ranting on here.

Asda wouldn't be able to get away by advertising standards if this was the case.

People are so quick to yell scam!!!!! When they don't read properly.

Asda are rubbish for online shopping they never have the stuff in a time of order, staff are lazy at picking. I've complained a few times and gotten money back. Most of the time there quick to respond, but they never improve, I moved across to Tescos, who are pretty faultless round here and when they do overcharge are quick to sort.

Ha! I love the way you think you are being clever! What use is a "valid from" date? The "valid to" is what is required.

You say "the offers ends when they are taken off the site!", well that is clearly the case, the problem arises when they are taken off the site inbetween ordering and delivery. It's equivalent to picking up something off the shelf and getting charged double at the till when the staff tell you that the offer expired while you were walking to the till.

I have been in touch with ASDA both via email and phone regarding their pricing but there is very little you can do with a company that size and my complaint regarding unclear pricing will never get further than the call centre staff trained to read from cue cards. So this is my little protest. I fail to see how anyone could think ASDA are operating honourably here and I'd question whether it's even within the law.

Agreed. Spammed.

If you actually ring the store (like I said to do) you'll get a lot further than you would ringing a call center.

Hey fungus, I would suggest contacting Trading Standards as suggested earlier and you could always contact Watchdog on the BBC, they may bring in ASDA for an interview on-air if others have also complained. Hope you get it sorted out, as the offers and deals are clearly misleading, if I was in your shoes I would also be p****d off, so I don't blame you.
