Ocado Flash Sales

35
Found 14th Apr 2014
On checkout Ocado always offer flash sale items. In total they usually offer ten items at discount, however they often have many more which are not displayed.

The flash sale items are available only when you have £40 in your basket.

The best way to get a full selection of the flash sale items is to put them all in your basket. This week alone there were over 70 different items.

Step 1) Add £40 of your normal shopping.

Step 2) Once at £40, go through the checkout process. Add all of the flash sale items.

Step 3) Once you have added the flash sale items, go back to the main page (click the Ocado logo) and go through the checkout process again. Add all of the flash sale items.

Step 4) Repeat this until there are no more flash sale items

Step 5) Now go to your basket, remove any items you don't want. Keep all the flash sale items that you want.

Step 6) Carry on the rest of your shopping as normal.

This can save you £10-20 a week on a reasonably large selection of goods by offering you the full range of flash sale items.

Hi Awears, no the flash sale items will be items not already in your basket. This week there were some great items, pork belly, broccoli, pizza, ready meals. All around 30-50% off. And all at prices not displayed within Ocado itself.

No need to go back to main page. Just hit F5

I found out for my self thanks haha when I added flash sale items more just kept coming on the page so I guess you don't need to go back to home page and do it all again also no need to press f5

great find op!

I always do this. End up spending more than I would though. Friday I was tempted in by the sirloin joint half price from around £50. Second time I got this. Gorgeous steak. I cut it into 10 individual steaks this time.

Tried this just now. Was only offered 23 items in total and two of them returned to full price on adding to basket :-(

Don't know what you are doing wrong but I tested this myself.

In total I got offered 63 items.

This included chicken fillets (40%), tomatoes (40%), mince (40%), green beans (40%), steak (40%), chocolate tart (40%), broccoli (33%), prawns (40%) and many many more basic foods.

I took out lots of items, including the original £40s worth of shopping and still had flash prices on all of the remaining items.

GREAT FIND!

You just refresh on the same page after adding when you want more. Just add them all first.

Where are the flash items? All that comes up for me is 'Before you go, try something new' and shows offers on sale on their website anyway.

I think those are supposed to be the flash sale items, but not sure? If they are, most were pretty average!

Morrisons online shopping have this flash sale too. If you make the order well upfront and keep rechecking out the flash sales change frequently, have lamb steaks for a few quid, 2l milk 30p, 5-6 person sized chicken £2.75 etc

Legendary company for cancelling your order when you spent hours doing it. Quicker to go to the store with regards to this company. cOLD

Really, I've done over 200 shops with Ocado, with hardly a problem.

Dear Mr Xxxxxx

This is an automated email sent on behalf of Ocado.

We regret to inform you that we have cancelled your order, which was due to be delivered between 13:00 and 14:00 on Friday 18 April.

We decided to take this action because we have been unable to verify the card details that relate to this order. As an online retailer, we are extremely keen to protect all customers from potential credit or debit card abuse, and this late cancellation is a consequence of that policy.

The reference number for the order we have cancelled is 3542214639.

We are sorry for the short notice and the inconvenience this will have inevitably caused you.

After two phone calls to discuss why I wasted my time they still could come up with a good answer. Sainsburys got our business

Wow, strange

Thanks for this. I've been shopping with ocado for a year and can't rate it highly enough. Good quality products and really helpful drivers.

They're coming up now, they weren't last night for some reason

I don't get flash sale items, I just get "before you go" try something new. All the offers listed are the same prices as on the main site. Am I doing something wrong?

Original Poster

Did you put £40 worth of shopping in your basket before hand?

Original Poster

I do this every week, and it works without fail if you follow the instructions. It is particular good at Easter, Christmas, after events

Does it work on the app? I can't see them on there.

Original Poster

Just checked, it works in the app. But you have to come back out of the checkout each time. Remember you need £40 of goods in your basket.

I was able to load 23 items in the app.

When you say go through the checkout process do you mean actually go as far as paying, I have 41.00 worth of shopping in the basket and have now got as far as adding the card security number but nothing has come up offer wise just the usual you might also like/before you go stuff?

Original Poster

It's before you pay in the like/before you go area. Not sure why you can't see it, but it works every time for me.

I still can't see it. Wonder if its to do with me having a delivery pass?

On the app, it will appear below the "Try something new" section...keep scrolling down

Original Poster

I have a delivery pass also sheenangel

The flash items only appear if you are within a few days of your delivery date. If you are ordering well ahead you would need to go back and amend your order a few days before and the flash sale items will be there.
Presumably they are reducing any overstocks of fresh items they have.
