I shopped at Sainsburys yesterday and was pleasantly surprised.

Hey all, completely random. But as the title says, I shopped at Sainsburys.

I have shopped at Tesco for years now and every time I go there I manage to spend £100+ and have nothing to show for it.

I know these super super markets are great with all their gizmos and gadgets, but what happened to good old honest shopping. After my trip to Sainsburys I spent £50 and had a fridge full of food, good quality food as well.

I am fed up of shopping in Tesco, being forced to buy twenty tins of tuna just to get it at a good price, and being sidetracked to buy homeware's etc.

One day, Tesco shoppers will realise they are putting massive amounts of money in to the back pocket of the shareholders and start shopping in the other supermarkets where the priorities are to sell good food and not just to turnover massive amounts of stock.

Heres and idea. Spend 50 quid on food at tesco rather than 100+ on apparently nothing

Folks...stay well clear of chicks who go into the detail.... :w00t:

I agree that Tesco is expensive now, apart from the special offers. I reckon that the best policy is to shop at all of the supermarkets and buy their offers every couple of week. More time-consuming though.

You get Nectar at sainsburys and not bad either also can get points at various places , garages, talk talk etc :thumbsup:

although I find sainsburys generally more expensive, the quality is far better. Tescos fruit, veg & meat is rank and goes off very quickly.

This,

A lot of there basic lines are just as good as the more expensive versions....

Normally get the majority of my stuff from there and just nip into Morrisions to have a gander at the offers

This. I find Sainsburys a more pleasant shopping experience but I find I spend more money on the same items than Tesco and not to mention the clubcard deals, they fantastic for the summer holidays for admissions!!

For people thinking I work for one of the supermarkets, I dont lol!!

This point above is also true. Tesco buy a lot more stock than other stores, and they store it in warehouses and release to the stores slowly, therefore they can buy more and supply it when they want to supply it!! Sell by dates are always shorted in Tesco.

Basically everything they do cripples the supplier!!! And we are going to pay for it in the future when the suppliers can not supply a decent product!

my father shops at tesco, the staff are ok most of the time but a few times in the past they have been less than helpful and ignorant almost got into an argument because the stupid witch on the checkout charged double on a can of tuna "accidently" and denied it when we complained at customer services....more like the cheeky cow tried to make up for giving extra change to somone grrrr.

I shop at Asda because I work for them I also get a 10% discount, im not biased as I also shop at sainsburys (they have an amazing bakery imo) but I really despise tesco so full of chavs too and the way we were made to look like criminals over a tin of tuna made me want to not go back...I did my work experience at the edgbaston store years back and hated it but yea its put me off tesco.

I shop at Lidl, Sainsbury's, Tesco and M&S.

Lidl is fab and the £5 off £30 in todays paper will help a lot :thumbsup:
#24
Sainsbury's have finally gotten around to covering my area for home delivery, so I did a comparison by ordering the same items I buy each week at both online shops, tescos and sainsburys.... they came out roughly the same +/- £1 or so. The MOST interesting thing I found is in the terms and conditions of home shopping with sainsburys, with them they take your money at the time of placing the order, but is still not a contract to provide you with the goods... the contract only comes into it when they ship the goods to you, so in other words they could have your money for a week or whatever and then decide not to deliver to you for whatever reason, then you'd also have to wait for them to refund you.
So, personally I am sticking with tesco.... but if you shop instore for stuff, then you have more choice about where you get stuff from.

Asda ftw :oops:

Sainsburys do not take the money when you place your order they take it after it's been picked and is ready to be loaded.


Sorry, I read this

7.1 We take payment from your card at the time we receive your order, once we have checked your card details and stock availability. Payment must be made with a valid credit or debit card acceptable to us. The address at which the card is registered must be the same as your billing address. You can register a new payment card at any time, but the card associated with a given order cannot be changed once you have checked out.
7.2 To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting these Terms and Conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information. This is done only to confirm your identity, a credit check is not performed and your credit rating will be unaffected.
7.3 Nectar points cannot be used as payment for all or part of an order.
7.4 Sainsbury’s gift vouchers and gift cards may be exchanged for goods in all Sainsbury’s stores and petrol stations. They may not be used to purchase goods or services online.
7.5 Coupons issued at store tills are not redeemable online.


Didn't notice that it said there are different terms and conditions for grocery shopping :oops:

Maybe they should make it a bit clearer, I did have a skim through the T&Cs prior to ordering, but when I saw that I was put off.... my own fault in a way I guess, but who wants to read through all this

Just to order groceries??

My theory is; All of the big supermarkets operate a cartel, only the smaller ones like Lidl, Aldi and Netto are truly in competition.
#29
Netto are now owned by Asda so perhaps big supermarkets are are closing in on the smaller ones... Trying Sainsburys home delivery for the first time this Friday. They do look a little more expensive than Tesco's though..
#30
Just do as I do and shop in all the supermarkets, therefore getting all the good deals. Mind you my van and fuel are free so that's not for all.
#31
I wish morrisons did delivery and sometype of award scheme! We did our shopping there the other day and saved a fortune with all the offers, also the fruit and veg seems very cheap and good value, along with the meat. I always feel stressy after going to tescos but was more relaxed in morrisons for some reason!
#32
I have a choice of ALDI, LIDL, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morisons and Asda all fairly local.

The one i used to go to was ASDA, but, since they started charging for bags, voted with my feet and, after trying others, settled on Sainsburys. Their own brand stuff, IMO, is superior to the others.
#33
Morrisons beats all ;)
#34
peodude we have two asdas close by and neither charge for bags.

I know, i have been to other ASDA's who don't charge for bags, infact, it's the only one i know that does. There own loss though, they have lost my custom, and probably many others.

I know i know, that it's easy to take your own bags, leave them in the boot or whatever, but i would never remember to take them in, and would only remember when i was standing at the till.
