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.

My email also has a code for 500 points - GRTTKK - if you get a delivery before 24th - I assume it can be used any time from now as it doesn't say otherwise. I'm going to use it on this week's delivery though as I'm bound to forget about it otherwise!

Anyone know when the rest of us can book?

I have been a loyal shopper online for a couple of years but don't do Delivery Saver and it really bugged me when they said this meant no priority slots anymore! I am not doing yet another direct debit.

Will have to keep checking i suppose. Don't book every thing MN's or i shall be a nervous wreck and have to go in the damn shop! shock

On their website it says when each days' slots will be available for everyone else

Quick question, you can book more than one slot at once right?

I have checked out on the 23rd slot, but since you can only have one slot from 20-24th, I thought I'd book one on the 19th too - but if I do that, will I lose my other one?

bringbacksideburns Mon 26-Nov-12 16:27:26

Not sure. Don't see why.

It looks like i'm going to be perched by the laptop at 12.01 am!

AmandinePoulain Mon 26-Nov-12 16:38:04

Well I've got my 23rd one, and it's letting me book my usual one for this Sunday so that should be ok, plus once you've checked out you're slot is confirmed isn't it?

fuzzpig Mon 26-Nov-12 16:45:38

Yes it is ok <phew> - I checked out for 19th too, and when I click on 'my orders' they are both listed as pending smile

Thanks, did mine just before school run for the 23rd.

Queeg Mon 26-Nov-12 16:49:56

Fuzzpig - maybe check the FAQ section on their website. I think you can book several slots but the Tesco delivery saver only covers you for one delivery during Christmas week, so you might get a delivery charge on the second order.

Queeg Mon 26-Nov-12 17:03:29

Fuzzpig Forget that. Just got my email from Tesco finally, and the one delivery thing only applies to the 20th to the 24th, so you should be fine.

I booked mine for the 23rd at 9.30am this morning. I have only just received the email telling me I can now book. Lucky I checked as from when I booked it at 9.30am to when I got home at 10am all slots on the 23rd had gone.

I would NOT of been a happy Christmas shopper if I had waited till I got my email to book!!

AmandinePoulain Mon 26-Nov-12 17:15:03

I've just got my email hmm

bumpybecky Mon 26-Nov-12 17:38:18

is anyone else having trouble getting through the checkout?

fuzzpig Mon 26-Nov-12 18:30:03

Thanks queeg (red dwarf?) I'm planning to make the 19th dec delivery for all the freezer/store cupboard stuff and then just the fresh/last minute stuff on 23rd. I'm really hoping there won't be snow!

fuzzpig Mon 26-Nov-12 18:32:32

I found the app too slow so I used mobile site becky, but didn't have any trouble checking out.

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

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...

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.

bumpybecky Mon 26-Nov-12 20:43:17

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!

StarlightMcKenzie Mon 26-Nov-12 20:44:13

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

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.

StarlightMcKenzie Mon 26-Nov-12 21:12:26

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

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.

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

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

StarlightMcKenzie Mon 26-Nov-12 21:32:11

So who are priority customers?
