Supermarkets including Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Aldi have faced an increase in demand for home delivery slots with more Britons staying at home due to the pandemic. Here is the latest advice from each retailer on booking a grocery shop to be delivered.
Supermarket giant Asda is currently experiencing demand for online shopping but says they are continuing to work on increasing their capacity.
The retailer also explains that checking the site regularly can help customers secure a home delivery slot as they are updated frequently.
Like Tesco, Asda also has a Click & Collect option with same day collection available for just a £1 fee when spending over £25.
Slots are subject to availability and groceries can be picked up within four hours of ordering for a £3 fee with no minimum spend.
If customers are looking for a cheaper alternative, picking up an order the following day is free on a £25 basket.
Asda said: “The slots you’ll see depend on the amount of items in your basket. Fewer items = earlier slots.”
Customers can use their online tool to find their nearest collection point.
Sainsbury’s is also prioritising elderly and vulnerable customers as they work with the Government to determine who is most in need.
However their Delivery Pass is available for new customers which allows shoppers to pick up to one delivery per day with a minimum order value of £40.
There are different options including an ‘Anytime Pass’ and a ‘Midweek Pass’ with prices starting at just £10.
This will also provide customers with a one hour delivery slot on a day of choice.
Like other supermarkets, Sainsbury’s is also expanding their Click & Collect service as demand for online groceries rises.
The retailer said: “We’ve expanded our Click & Collect service to more locations, so you can still order online and collect from one of our stores.”
Customers can use the online store locator tool to find out where their nearest supermarket is with the available service.
Aldi has a variety of home delivery options available including next day delivery, named day delivery, free standard delivery over £30 and also large item delivery.
The discount retailer said: “There is no minimum spend for delivery.
“Enjoy free standard delivery on all wine and Specialbuys orders over £30, excluding large and high value item deliveries. For orders under £30, standard delivery is charged at £2.95.”
CollectPlus is also available for a charge of £2.95 which allows customers to shop online and have them delivered to a convenient CollectPlus point.
There is also Click & Collect available at most stores along with Aldi products being available on Deliveroo too.
