Ocado again

Have just signed up to Ocados thing where you pay £3.99 a month a get unlimited deliveries. I though it was a good idea but now they've stopped sending me those nice emails with 15% off my next shop. I only ever got 1/2 deliveries a month and often got the £1.99 late night slots. Dammit, AIBU to think I have just shot muself in the foot financially? PLUS all this talk of free gifts... I can't remember the last time the buggers gave me a free gift! GRRR! Btw, usually spend about £140-£180 per shop if that's relevant.

YEs you have shot yourself in the foot - but at least you'll definately get a Christmas slot!

Doigthebountyeater Sat 06-Nov-10 19:24:23

But not the actual week of Xmas apparently... Well you can have one but no more.

Fuck it, where's my free bad ham they used to keep giving us?

you could order less more frequently, just to get your money's worth? how about one item per day? wink

but i reckon an email saying you don't send me offers anymore might be fun

Doigthebountyeater Sat 06-Nov-10 19:56:57

Might do that. It does seem unfair to their regular customers doesn't it?

bestbefore Sat 06-Nov-10 19:59:41

they've stopped my offer emails too.....and I haven't signed up for it. Think they have just changed policy in some way. Annoying though

Doigthebountyeater Sat 06-Nov-10 20:03:40

Oh right. it happened immediately after I signed upp for the service so assumed the two were connected.

I often have more than one delivery a week. One main one and a small one to top up on fresh stuff.

And in my last delivery was a tube of Pringles. Mmmmm.

MollieO Sat 06-Nov-10 20:10:47

Just a tube of Pringles or £40 worth of Pringles? I thought there was a minimum order value?

SoupDragon Sat 06-Nov-10 20:13:31

Sorry, I meant a free tube of pringles.

MollieO Sat 06-Nov-10 20:15:54

I did wonder! I never get anything free other than bloody Boden catalogues and I pay £9.99 month [mug emoticon]

I think they're stopping the 15% off vouchers, I only ordered when I"d got one. I think I'll change to Waitrose now as they have £0 delivery charge. To the OP, yes I think you probably have shot yourself in the foot, sorry! Sometimes I have thought about the ocado sign up thing but then I thought I would be hemmed in and wouldn't have any choice but to use them for the next year.

bellavita Sat 06-Nov-10 20:25:20

Oh and I thought the £0 delivery charges were just for the new store that has opened near us.... I thought it was to get customers in <feels voilated>

CatIsSleepy Sat 06-Nov-10 20:25:21

am not sure we've ever had a 15% off voucher and we've been ordering off them for ages!

Doigthebountyeater Sat 06-Nov-10 20:32:39

Free pringles shock I am sooooo jealous!!!!
Well, let that be a lesson to you peeps, don't sign up for the unlimited deliveries thingy!

ilove Sat 06-Nov-10 20:34:42

<waits for the ocado honcho woman to show up here.....>

Simbacatlives Sat 06-Nov-10 20:35:33

We get free cloudy bay wine.

Doigthebountyeater Sat 06-Nov-10 20:36:01

Hope she does and gives me some bloody free pringles/and or wine.

Doigthebountyeater Sat 06-Nov-10 20:36:26

Is cloudy bay good or not?

CatIsSleepy Sat 06-Nov-10 20:39:09

free wine? bloody hell. the last freebie we had was a bag of chilli-flavoured rice cakes <irked>

prettybird Sat 06-Nov-10 20:40:08

The Cloudy Bay Sauvignan Blanc used to be one of the best New World Sauvignan Blancs. it's now massively increased its production so it is not quite so exclusive - but it, or even the chardonnay (which was more "middle of the range" quality wise) would be more than respectable as a freebie envy

bellavita Sat 06-Nov-10 20:44:56

When I first started doing online shopping with Ocado, I got a few free bottles of that Cloudy Bay stuff. Was quite nice.

mutable Sat 06-Nov-10 20:45:22

shock We've never had a free tube of pringles!

Always get a 'free' Boden catalogue though hmm

MrsDinky Sat 06-Nov-10 20:45:29

I got a 15% voucher today, so they are still doing them.

bellavita Sat 06-Nov-10 20:52:36

Oooh get you MrsDinky <jealous>
