i use it when dh is in hospital. very handy. tho the delivery slots can be expensive at certains times.

Yes and it is the most wonderful thing ever!!!

We shop with Asda, never had problems, always on time and it's much better ordering at home watching tv with a cuppa rather than walking around with a trolley that has a mind of it's own and a screaming toddler!!!

Newbarnsleygirl Thu 10-Mar-05 19:59:48

I think it's worth every penny.

Ocado do free delivery if you spend over a certain amount.

PrettyCandles Thu 10-Mar-05 20:03:53

We use Ocado whenever they send us a voucher. They are excellent, can't criticise them at all. It doesn't save much time, as it takes about 50min to do the shop (possibly slow because we have dial-up) whereas dh can do a solo shop in about 1h15m including driving. But you can save shopping lists, so if you tend to buy the same things each time then it will be faster after the first time.

Less often these days as it's quite nice to get out with ds but when I was heavily pregnant it was a godsend. Plus doing the Christmas shopping online meant no hassle trying to get through crowded shops with a pushchair.

Is it sorted yet Aimsmum

yes in the past have used Tesco's and Waitrose...very handy and so nice looking at the whole shop contents on line, not impulse buying and spending less!!...only thing is they can by short of the odd item which can be a little annoying but generally...great and £5.00..

Sainsburys always been fine with us!

I had shopping delivered today from Tesco. Arrived on time and more easier than going shopping myself.
I bought some eggs which are out of date and the shampoo bottle has leaked but I don't mind about that.
Delivery charges vary from £3.99 to £5.99 depends on which day you have it delivered.
One of the good things of ordering from Tesco's is, there are always discounts advertised on the internet for them. I used a £15 off code for mine!

nappybaglady Thu 10-Mar-05 20:09:01

Tesco - fantastic

charge 3.99-5.99,depending on time

Howevr if you search this site or moneysaving expertdotcom there are always some discount codes around for £5-10 off shop so effectively never pay for delivery

Love 'em

Use Waitrose most weeks. Delivery is £5. I love it! If they have to substitute an item you don't have to accept it and they charge you for the cheaper of the 2 items. You can also add notes to say what you'd prefer as a substitute if they haven't got something. I find they rarely have to substitute anyway (and you can specify no substitution on any item if you know you definitely want a particular one).

nappybaglady Thu 10-Mar-05 20:12:35

Great minds kid!

If they send wrong or damaged stuff just email and they refund without queston.

Also v helpful to order a few basics before you go away on hol to be delivered the morning after you get back (onthe rare occasion I've beeen that organised)

Bozza Thu 10-Mar-05 20:17:24

Asda is actually free if you spend over £99. Not that I ever do, mind you. I think its brilliant. I can do the order while I'm at work and then they deliver promptly in my two hour slot (6-8 on a Thursday and tonight at 6.40 was quite late).

helsi Thu 10-Mar-05 20:18:57

ooo I spend over £99 on my "big" shop so might go with ASDA if its free. PLus they do a lot of free food for my slimming world diet.

I use Tesco and Sainsburys. Tesco's is a much better quicker website so the shopping takes less time. Once you have shopped with either of them they save what you have ordered to your favourites and you can then reorder it more quickly the next time. I never pay for delivery with Sainsburys because I end up spending more than £60 a go but the website annoys me so much I prefer using Tesco.
