Best Supermarket for Online Shopping?

Any recommendations please? Ease of use, reliability and lack of daft substitutions are the priorities. I think we have access to all the big players minus Morrisons (no loss imo) but including Ocado.

Attempts in the past have met with mixed success. Smug feeling when the day's paper and fresh croissants arrive - less so when I realise I've bought 'instant tea' (wtf!) and a box of cornflakes measuring 2ft sq.

Thank you armchair shoppers.

i have had countless problems when online shopping with asda, but never really had any problems with tesco....but asda's website is easier to navagate round and order the right things than tesco.....but i know tesco inside out now so know what i'm doing everytime now!!

tesco great imo
spec if oyu haev a clubcard

Ocado, definitely. Never late. Hands you the bags. Everything colour coded. Rarely substitutions and then logical ones.

I'l second Tesco, been using it for a couple of years and genreally v. good. On the odd opccasion there has been somethign wrong, missed or broken one quick call and they always refund without question.
Do have a clubcard and always search for points and codes before a big shop.

ocado defo

I think Ocado is the best. Tesco website is always really slow for me and there are always substitutions, the same for Asda only Asdas substitutions make no sense at all. I have never had any substitutions with Ocado , the delivery driver always offers to bring the shopping in for me and you often get freebies.

I usually use Tesco (clubcard vouchers). But Ocado sent me a 15 off code so am expecting my first delivery from them tomorrow.

Am worried about ponce-factor though...

Always used to use Tesco, till I moved and they completely screwed up my orders most of the time, and didn;t even show up once. Have used Waitrose Deliver a couple of times, is a lot better than Tesco, no substitutions, really nice delivery man and better food. But a lot more expensive (but nicer in a ooh get me sort of way)

Owww -singed eyebrow! Hope you're okay.

Thanks all. Think I'll start with Ocado. Bring on the ponce-factor and if it costs 20% more I'll just have to eat 20% less. I don't think Waitrose sell instant tea - so less room for error too.

LOl Headheart my eyebrow is fine this was just my bonfire night name that I haven't been arsed to change back.

Use this site and choose Tesco I would say. Please try it. It is great and show pictures and is easy to navigate and compares all the shops and then forwards your trolly to the one you choose. Much better than Tescos own site and you can import your faves from the Tesco site etc etc.

pml - Glad to hear that - I thought you'd nearly lost an eye! (and a woman with responsibilities too -repeat everyone "never play with fireworks").

HeadHeartorHormones · 07/11/2007 18:24
