Is it too late to get any deliveries slots from any supermarket? I don't mind having to wait, but I would like to try & book.

It somewhat depends on where you are. We aren't as badly hit as some areas as you can still get slots for three weeks' time(!). But I'd be surprised if there were any slots for the next few days or even couple of weeks. Just go on and look. Every second spend posting here, someone else is booking them Wink

I've managed to get a Sainsbury's slot for my uncle today and Tesco for me tomorrow.

Why don’t you have a look? It seems to vary massively depending on where you are.

In Ayrshire, first home delivery from Asda is beginning of May!

If you're a meat eater then musclefood will deliver in around 2 weeks. I periodically fill up my freezer with their stuff and have an order coming on Friday.

In South London none at all

moochpooch · 21/03/2020 08:06

I am looking but I didn't know if people are getting email notifications that slots are available iyswim. I'm in London.

I just checked for my parents address in NW London. All slots not available with Tesco and it goes up to the 10th of april.

Orangecake123 · 21/03/2020 08:12

Same with click and collect!

Fedupandpoor · 21/03/2020 08:13

Asda let you book recurring slots, so my first delivery is in two weeks but after that I'm good!

moochpooch · 21/03/2020 08:14

yes that's what I see on Tesco & Sainsburys & i'm not a registered customer of Ocado. I'm worried about my mum & mil who are already isolating & just won't have enough provisions.

Nothing available now in the whole of Cornwall for a month now the tourists have turned up. Why they have come here I have absolutely no idea. Does no one understand the phrase ‘stay home’?

RoseMartha · 21/03/2020 08:16

I cant get one either, it is annoying as responsible for vulnerable people so would prefer not to go into the shop.

mabelbagel · 21/03/2020 08:17

I think they're coming on unavailable

JonHammIsMyJamm · 21/03/2020 08:22

You might be able to get a slot but actually getting the food on your list is another story...

TheEmojiFormerlyKnownAsPrince · 21/03/2020 08:27

The only slot l can get is Asda in 3 weeks.

Live in a big city though

moochpooch · 21/03/2020 08:27

i'm not normally a big online food shopper as in we don't have a regular slot but do use Sainsburys once a month. I'm assuming if you don't have delivery passes you've got no chance?

If I buy an Asda delivery pass will I get notification when slots become available?

I live in the back of beyond and use Ocado every week, have a delivery pass etc. Got one coming today which I had to book a good 14 days ago and one booked for next Saturday with only wine in the reserve the slot. Hoping the website is up and running again today.

RoseMartha · 21/03/2020 08:37

Just an idea but I have managed to get click and collect which I decided was better than nothing.

TheEmojiFormerlyKnownAsPrince · 21/03/2020 08:40

I couldn’t get click and collect either.

I think people are logging on at one minute after midnight.

TheEmojiFormerlyKnownAsPrince · 21/03/2020 08:40

And l have a delivery pass that l can’t even use.

moochpooch · 21/03/2020 08:42

I checked a couple of sites at midnight & 6am & nothing if any consolation

I've also got a delivery pass but no slots available.
Very frustrating as I paid for my deliveries before Christmas and am now having to click and collect from a different supermarket!
