Tesco makes major change to its delivery service – and shoppers will love it | The Sun

TESCO has brought back its 12-month delivery passes which could save you plenty on your online shopping.

The supermarket giant has also introduced a six-month click and collect delivery pass allowing you to pick up orders in store at any time.

Tesco previously offered a 12-month home delivery pass for the same amount of money but stopped it during the coronavirus pandemic.

The plans start from £2.49 a month, all the way up to £6.99 a month.

How much can the passes save you?

For a one-off delivery slot, Tesco usually charges between £3.50 and £7.

The amount will vary based on the time of day and the day of the week you select, and how popular they are.

If you selected a £7 slot once a week, that would add up to a whopping £364 over the year.

But the 12-month pass costs £83.88 a year or £6.99 a month for anytime delivery.

That means the pass could save regular peak-time shoppers around £280 a year.

If you just want off-peak delivery it's £47.88 a year or £3.99 a month.

Off-peak means you don't get same day delivery and can only book delivery slots for after 3pm.

However, one thing to note is that regardless of which delivery pass you buy, the minimum spend is £40 each time.

The new click and collect service costs £2.49 a month for six months.

Click and collect is when you purchase your groceries online and collect them at your nearest supermarket rather than having them delivered.

You can book your click and collect slot up to four weeks in advance, but there's a same day option too.

While this option is cheaper, it does mean you do have to head out to collect your shop rather than have it conveniently arrive at your home.

What do the other supermarkets offer?

Most major supermarkets offer their own delivery passes, so it's worth shopping around to find the best deals.

Rather than just diving into buying a pass though, work out if it's actually worth getting one.

If you do your supermarket shopping monthly, it might not be worth it.

Some supermarkets will make up the difference if you don't make a saving on your shopping, but this will be a discount on future shops rather than cash.

Always read the small print and clue yourself up on whether there's a limit on how many deliveries you can have or if there are any exemptions.


Sainsbury's offers a monthly pass for £7.50 or £80 for annual membership.

And the supermarket will give you a voucher if you don't make the money back from your membership.


Morrisons' passes work a bit differently to the other major supermarkets.

It has a cheaper Tuesday to Thursday pass which comes in at £5 a month.

And it also has a £20 long-term pass for six months and £35 for a year.

If you want the Monday to Sunday option, it's £8 a month, £40 for six months or £65 a year.


Asda also has different tiers – it's £6 for a monthly anytime pass or £72 for the year.

And you can pay for an annual Tuesday to Thursday membership for just £35.

Collect instead

While it might seem easier to lay back and wait for your order to be delivered, click and collect will often work out cheaper.

But this will depend on how far away the supermarket is and whether you have access to a car or other form of transportation.

Fuel costs are also a consideration, particularly with prices currently so high.

Asda collection slots start at 50p and same day delivery from £1.50.

At Sainsbury's, prices start at 50p but can go up to £4 depending on the type of collection.

Aldi doesn't offer home delivery but you can click and collect from the budget supermarket for £4.99.

Lidl shoppers unfortunately will have to either buy in-store or have their groceries delivered as it doesn't offer click and collect services.

Check for substitutions

If the supermarket doesn't have the product you wanted, they sometimes swap it for a different item.

However, if you don't the alternative item, you should always hand it back to the driver and you'll get the amount taken off your order.

If you do keep the substitution, the amount you will be charged depends on the supermarket.

Tesco and Asda won't charge you more, even if the substitution is more expensive.

Sainsbury's will send you a voucher for the difference to be used for a future purchase in the supermarket.

But Morrisons will charge for how much the item cost when it was packed.

You should get the difference repaid if the substitution is cheaper than your original choice.
