Cheap online supermarket deliveries

If you regularly do your grocery shopping online, it's vital you track down the cheapest supermarket delivery deals or you'll end up wasting a load of cash.

Our guide explains how to do just that and covers all the main supermarkets, including Tesco, Sainsbury's, Ocado and Iceland.

But before your scroll to your favourite store, please note some supermarkets have reported a sharp spike in demand for online deliveries due to the latest lockdown, so you may have to wait longer to book a slot at some stores.

The increased demand is being driven by people worried about stock shortages seen when lockdown was first introduced last March, as well as more demand from clinically vulnerable people who have been asked to shield once more.

While we can't help you jump the queue, you can at least ensure you pay the lowest possible price for your delivery, whenever that may be.

Asda delivery costs

Minimum order: £40

Delivery cost: £1-£6.50

Cheapest delivery slots: Monday to Thursday afternoons and evenings

Regular Asda shopper? Grocery Delivery Passes entitle you to free delivery anytime for specific days, but new delivery passes are no longer on sale at the time of writing.

Asda is unable to confirm when delivery passes will go back on sale. We’ll update this article if Asda gets in touch with any new updates.

When delivery passes were available, shoppers could get an Anytime Delivery Pass, which was available for 12 months. You had to pay £5 a month for 12 months or a £55 one-off payment, or alternatively, you could get a six-month pass for £35 (or six £6 monthly instalments).

There was also a midweek 12-month pass for deliveries on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, which would have set you back £24.

Asda has promised that if your Delivery Pass didn't save you more than you would have spent on standard delivery charges, it will give you an eVoucher for the difference.

Top tips for saving on all online grocery shopping

1. Sign up for emails with all of the supermarket websites, even if you don't intend to shop with them straight away.

Like all retailers, supermarkets often send out discount codes (such as 15% off your shopping) to entice us to shop with them, which will usually more than cover the delivery charge.

2. Switch around. Never use the same delivery service twice in a row. Supermarkets tend to ignore loyal customers and send their best deals to those who haven't used their service for a while – make them stew and watch the offers roll in!

3. Complain, complain, complain. If there is anything at all wrong with your shopping (late delivery, damaged fruit or vegetables, items too close to their sell-by date, dented tins) don't just accept it, phone up and tell them.

Most customer service managers are keen that you enjoy the service and will often replace or simply refund your money, straight away.

What's more, depending on the problem many will issue credit notes too, giving money off your next delivery (which may cover that delivery fee!).

4. Check prices. Depending on what you buy you could still end up spending more at different supermarkets, even if your delivery costs nothing.

5. Don't forget Click & Collect. A number of supermarkets offer Click & Collect services, where you order in advance and simply have to pick up the shopping, which is already bagged up and ready for you.

Christmas is on the way and after a year dominated by lockdown supermarket delivery slots are being snapped up.

Tesco, Asda and M&S have already warned about limited slots for Christmas supermarket deliveries, while the likes of Iceland have not yet released their delivery slots.

As many people stay at home demand for deliveries is set to be high so if you are looking for a Christmas food delivery now is the time to act.

We have taken a look at every supermarket in the UK and checked for delivery slots.

Iceland

Iceland is offering free Christmas delivery for any orders over £35. You can order from Monday 14 December up to Friday 18 December here.

Delivery slots are available between 6am and 11pm up to 23 December. However, there is a way to get some money off your Iceland Christmas shop.

You can join Topcashback and get £15 off your Iceland Christmas shop. If you spend £35 for the free delivery it will cost you just £20 if you are a new member of Topcashback. You can join here.

M&S

M&S is already warning that due to extremely high demand, there are now limited products and collection slots available. There are still slots but you will have to move quickly.

Slots are available between 22 and 24 December for Christmas and 30 and 31 December for New Year orders. You can also pre-order and pay the balance when you collect in store.

You can check for slots and availability here now.

Asda

Asda has opened its delivery and collection slots for Christmas. The store says: 'Slots sell out fast at this busy time so make sure you book as soon as you can. Once slots are gone, they’re gone!'.

Plus if you have a recurring slot you won't be able to use it between December 19 and January 3, so you'll need to book a new slot during that time period. Then your regular slot will restart automatically after January 3.

To book a slot for Christmas 2020 go to the Asda website here.

Tesco

Tesco's website states: 'We're experiencing high demand for slots around Christmas'.

Iceland Delivery Times

Currently shoppers can book a click & collect slot or a flexi saver delivery slot, due to high demand.

The supermarket has also given shoppers some tips for stress-free ordering including booking your slot and adding only a few items to checkout to give you more time to make your list. Then once you're ready to finish your order just go back and check out again by 11:45pm on the day before your delivery.

If you've forgotten something don't worry because you can also amend your order as many times as you like, just make sure to check out each time you do.

Finally if there's any Festive Food to Order items in your Christmas basket, you'll need to check them out by 11:45pm on December 14. You can still amend other items that aren't part of Festive Food to Order until 11:45pm on the day before your delivery. But you won't be able to amend a Festive Food to Order item unless you want to remove it completely.

Iceland Delivery Slots

Sainsbury's

Iceland Online Shopping Delivery Charge

Sainsbury's has opened its delivery and collection slots for December 20-23.

The store is urging customers to plan ahead and beat the rush by securing a slot that's right for them, three weeks in advance.

Then once you've secured a slot you'll need to check out, but you won't be charged for your basket until the day of delivery or collection. You can also amend your basket as many times as you like until 11pm the day before.

To find out more and book a slot go to the Sainsbury's website here.

Morrisons

Shoppers can get a Morrisons same-day delivery throughout December when ordering through Amazon.

The two have teamed up ahead of Christmas and you can book a delivery up to 3pm on December 24 - depending on availability.

They will then resume taking orders from 12pm on Christmas Day for grocery essentials from December 26.

The delivery is free for Prime members, so if you're not already a Prime member you can sign up for a free 30-day trial and take advantage of the Morrisons delivery as well as other Prime benefits including TV and film streaming and next-day delivery on thousands of products.
