Sorry if this has already been covered, but thought it might help someone

Having agonised for several minutes over the merits of 23rd Vs 24th and having missed the Christmas deliveries every year until now, I felt I needed to share this with you all!

(decided on the 23rd BTW!)

I cant see where they are........ Waaaaaaaaaah where did you find them

If you go on and book a delivery, it should be just underneath 'book a single delivery'. At least it was for me, am feeling all smug I have just done mine. Yipeeee!

blowninonabreeze Tue 20-Oct-09 15:28:45

book a single delivery, underneath the grid that usually says the times it has a link, "book Christmas delivery"

I do have on demand though, don't know if thtat makes a difference

Have booked mine for 22nd. 23rd was fully booked and only one a lot left on 24th.

A bit cross that is is £9.99 a a lot though with no discount for having paid out for the monthly payment.

Hulababy Tue 20-Oct-09 16:21:09

Must remember to sort it out nearer the time too. Min order is 90 so added 3 bottles of champagne! Must remember to change it lol.

blowninonabreeze Tue 20-Oct-09 16:23:52

Agree about the £9.99 but worth every penny IMO not to be doing that supermarket shop, DH is working until 3.30 on Christmas Eve so it'd be me and 2 pre-schoolers shopping for 15 people. Joy!

Was too nervous to book the 24th - though if they run out of everything there'd be no time to get replacements.

Am absurdly gleefull about this!

blowninonabreeze Tue 20-Oct-09 16:25:03

I too must remeber to change it or we'll be having 10 boxes of pampers for dinner - yours sounds preferable to be honest - think ours would be a little dry grin

cece Tue 20-Oct-09 16:30:47

Wail! I can't see it on mine, so must be priority for regular users. Sob.

ClaireDeLoon Tue 20-Oct-09 16:30:52

Booked mine last week and it too just has bottles of champagne on it grin

I booked for the 22nd as that was the only day early morning slots were available. Like blowinonabreeze says it gives time to get anything missing!

MrsJohnDeere Tue 20-Oct-09 16:31:43

Thanks for this. Have booked for the 23rd (just in case some things are missing or damaged).

Disappointed to have to pay £10 though on top if the 'on demand' payment. Worth it though not to go shopping with the dcs.

Mine only goes up to the middle of November, surely they must all be the same? Actually maybe not if they are divided up into regions.

I normally put 12 bottles of scotch in to hold the slot, definitely preferable to 10 boxes of nappies grin!

Hulababy and blowin, you shouldn't be paying for the slot if you have On Demand. Just checked mine and I haven't been charged. You are entitled to 1 free delivery slot in the Christmas period with On Demand and just pay for any extra deliveries you have in that time.

Jajas Tue 20-Oct-09 16:34:36

I think it must just be for all of you that have on demand?

Owls Tue 20-Oct-09 16:35:14

Whoops x post MrsJohnDeere, same applies to you. Or have I got it wrong? <puzzled>

ClaireDeLoon Tue 20-Oct-09 16:35:46

I got the slots released last week and I have annual on demand (so no £9.99 charge).

blowninonabreeze Tue 20-Oct-09 16:37:47

ah yes - we don't have annual on demand - we pay monthly - that may make a difference?

ClaireDeLoon Tue 20-Oct-09 16:40:03

Must do

MrsJohnDeere Tue 20-Oct-09 16:40:22

Monthly on demand here too. A message came up on the screen saying on demand free delivery didn't apply from 20-24th Dec (or something similar).

Owls Tue 20-Oct-09 16:43:01

Ahh right, yes I've the annual On Demand as well.

cornsilk Tue 20-Oct-09 17:07:38

I have on demand and I think that charging a tenner for delivery is bloody cheeky.

nearlybeans Tue 20-Oct-09 17:10:07

Waitrose online are taking orders for free delivery now - minimum spend £50. Slots for the 23rd disappearing fast...

Hulababy Tue 20-Oct-09 19:42:50

Thanks for that nearlybeans.

I have just booked a free Waitrose slot for the same time as the £9.99 Ocado slot. Going to cancel Ocado. I am also going to email them and tell them why.

cece Tue 20-Oct-09 20:07:28

Thanks managed to book a delivery fro 21 st! But better than nothing!

Fivesetsofschoolfees Tue 20-Oct-09 20:10:11

I have just booked mine for the evening of the 23rd. Seems weird putting together an order now, but given that I have exactly the same every year, it wasn't too difficult.
