Ocado is from 12th October I think

Thanks for that.

Booked a Waitrose slot which I’ll keep as my back up in case I don’t get a Sainsbury’s one! I do this every year, just in case!

I've got my Ocado slot already - perhaps it's because I have a smart pass?

Ocado slots are staggered through October, depending on how much you’re loved!

I can book my Ocado one on the ninth but other people I know have different days for booking theirs.

Callmecordelia Fri 06-Oct-17 13:26:59

Blimey. I didn't think I spent that much with them. blush

NoWordForFluffy Fri 06-Oct-17 13:29:38

I rarely spend anything, so I’ve no clue how I got 12th!

I did mine yesterday but most of the food i would order is already out of stock!? 😕

I think it's a holding status. When I was editing my Christmas delivery it was magically all there. When I swapped to Sunday's delivery it was all out of stock again.

Got my Christmas ocado slot this morning - the email reminder came at the weekend and I set a reminder in my phone. I just put boring ordinary stuff in plus some booze to get to £90 and then edit in late November.

I am gleeful as my boss normally gets hers weeks before me but not this time, Ocado love me the most <petty>

Thanks for this
I’ve done my Waitrose shop now.....22nd December, to give me plenty of time in case there are any missing items

SuperVeggie Sat 07-Oct-17 18:45:44

Please can someone tell me if I'm doing this right?! I can only manage to get 22nd dec on waitrose but i've got an email from ocado saying i can book from 26th oct onwards. But i want to reserve the waitrose slot in case the only ocado ones left are rubbish. So I've gone on waitrose, got my slot on 22nd and shoved 5 x £20 bottles of bubbly in there. Do I just go through checkout now, and then edit at a later date? (I'm worried I'll forget and end up with a shit load of overpriced booze, but needs must!)

NoWordForFluffy Sat 07-Oct-17 18:52:46

Yes, check out now and edit / cancel later!

Reminder on your phone to do so. 😁

SuperVeggie Sat 07-Oct-17 19:14:18

Done. Thanks. I'm really hoping Ocado has a decent slot cos otherwise I'm waitrose between 10-11pm the Friday night before Xmas! :-(

NoWordForFluffy Sat 07-Oct-17 19:30:05

There weren’t many decent slots when I got mine. Luckily as DH is a SAHD we have more options than others.

I’m hoping for Sainsbury’s on 23rd when they release their slots in reality!

Thanks for reminder to do my Ocado one tomorrow!

How much is the Ocado Christmas delivery? I remember thinking it wasn't worth it last year but I still don't remember how much it cost.

Taffeta Sun 08-Oct-17 15:42:00

Ocado delivery is £9.99 per slot. I live miles awa from a supermarket so it's worth it for me.

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Mon 09-Oct-17 14:09:45

I think Ocado slots only opened today for me. Rather chuffed I got in even before the reminder arrived! I'm a cheapskate and won't pay the huge charge for deliveries nearer Christmas Day given I'm already paying for my Smart Pass, but in any case I don't trust anybody else to get our Christmas dinner essentials, so I get the heavy and less perishable stuff delivered on the day when it's free (Wed 20th) and do the rest myself later in the week. Not too bad going to the supermarket when you only have a shortish list to get through.

PantPlot Mon 09-Oct-17 14:12:17

Booked my two Ocado slots 🙌🏻

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Mon 09-Oct-17 14:23:59

Trying to work out those emojis, PantPlot. Is it feet about to go into a foot spa? grin

Allthebestnamesareused Mon 09-Oct-17 14:59:31

I've just done my Christmas shop for Waitrose delivery on 23rd but lat evening. Only 2 slots available. Thanks for the prompt OP.

SweetIcedTea Mon 09-Oct-17 15:55:42

I booked my Ocado slot this morning, for 9am - 10am on Christmas Eve, I popped the standard 3 bottles of Champagne in my trolley so I could checkout.

I went for dishwasher tablets.
