I've not received an email yet, despite signing up to delivery saver. Just called up Tesco though and emails are going out today. However, I logged on to the website and the slots are now there for booking. My order for Christmas is now booked. Phew!

Get them while you can.

Thank you!

Buy Cravendale or shops own brand pure filter and it will last at least two weeks, so you would be absolutely fine. Tastes better too IMO.

How many days does milk last in the fridge? I can't put it in the freezer because there won't be any room, and my only solution means buying milk on the 19th and expecting it to last until the 27th...

I do an Internet shop 2-3 times monthly but I vary my supermarket!

I paid £60 for the saver delivery for 6 months, because the slot I need them to deliver in costs me £6. So if I use them 10 or more times in 6 months I get it free. The Christmas delivery priority I had forgotten all about until I read this thread and checked this morning.
The only thing to watch out for is that it renews automatically, I have a note in my diary to remind me to cancel or allow the renew, but tbh I've used the delivery way more than that already.

By midnight on the Thursday / Friday, I mean that the money will be in my account to PAY for the shopping and delivery at 00:01 on the 21st, and not before. WTF do I do?

I'm not fit enough to do what I usually do and do it at night by taxi anymore, I've got much worse physically in the last year. sad

So let me get this straight. Because I can't afford to pay for my deliveries upfront, I can't get a delivery slot when I will need one?

The reason I need it delivered is because I'm disabled and can't get that amount of shopping home, and the reason I can't pay for delivery upfront is because I'm disabled and don't work.

Tesco are fucking bastards. What will be the closest delivery to Christmas I can get if I don't pay for delivery upfront? If it's anything earlier than Friday 21st, it's not going to be any good for me, because a) the food won't last until I next get paid, and b) as my benefits payment would usually be due on Christmas Day, the earliest I will get that payment is midnight on the Thursday / Friday.

Fuck. What am I meant to do now?!

Starlight Priority goes to those who paid for the delivery saver service, where you pay your delivery charges up front for a certain period of time.

those with delivery saver

So who are priority customers?

myBOYSareBONKERS Mon 26-Nov-12 21:24:14

I would of thought they will increase the amount of slots available on wednesday

MegBusset Mon 26-Nov-12 21:16:14

I think they're only open now for priority customers. The rest of us will get access to the slots on Weds.

I can only get as far as the 16th Dec! That's no good. I'm out of the country until the 22nd.

Queeg Mon 26-Nov-12 21:10:52

Starlight The tesco chap this morning told me that they weren't doing any deliveries on the 24th, so the 23rd is the nearest for Christmas. Not sure what slots will be left now though.

How do I get a 23rd or 24th slot?

Managed it from DH's laptop, seems it was my pc having a hissy fit. No idea why it's in denial about Christmas, Amazon got hammered for presents last week!

trumpton Mon 26-Nov-12 20:42:56

Well I got Friday 21st. Nothing left for Saturday or Sunday. Email just pinged into my inbox. Thanks for the heads up.

Queeg Mon 26-Nov-12 19:40:02

Yes Fuzzpig I am a Red Dwarf fan. It was just about the only name I could get as lots of other good possible user names had already been taken by other Mners!

Must think of something more creative...

Eddas Mon 26-Nov-12 18:38:31

I haven't had an email yet and am a delivery saver customer angry but thanks to you all I now have a 23rd Dec slot. mustn't do what I once did and not check out properly and end up with the 6 cases of beer i've currently ordered grin
