Supermarket Delivery Info: Plus FREE Delivery Trials
I thought I would put all the information for supermarket home deliveries and click and collect orders here in one place so if you do have to isolate or choose not to go out, you have all the information to make the right choice for you with substitution rules and minimum orders plus any offers for free delivery trials too!
At the moment, delivery slots are few and far between but my advice (A someone who has been getting supermarket home deliveries for 10+ years) is this...
Book your slot now for the next available date that suits you. You can add, amend or cancel the order up until the day before so do it now and you secure your slot.
Did you know that Iceland offer FREE delivery on orders over £25 if you shop in store and don't want to lug it home or £35 online? They don't just do frozen stuff either with household essentials, cleaning products, wipes, baby products and fresh produce too. It's a really great all year round offer and as you can imagine very popular at the moment so book ahead and get your slot now.
They have lots of offers on and lots of products and freezer fillers for only £1 too.
They don't offer substitutions so if what you ordered online isn't in stock they won't send it and you won't be charged.
If you are self isolating the delivery drivers will always do their best to deliver your shopping to you. If you are self-isolating, before you answer the door, you can ask the driver to leave your items on the doorstep.
Asda are limiting orders to a maximum of 3 units per order on ANY item right now. Delivery prices vary depending on what time you want your order delivered but start at just £3. If your order is under £40 they charge you an extra £3 on top and there is a £3 charge on orders under £25 for click and collect

You can allow substitutions on everything or choose not too on the whole order or individual items and they will be charged at the original item price if higher or the lower price if lower so you don't loose out.
Sainsbury's have made it easy for people who are self isolating to get groceries delivered.

You need to spend £40 for delivery or £25 for click and collect orders or they will add a basket surcharge of £4 to your order.
They 'price match' substitutions, so if they offer you a more expensive product than the one you ordered, they only charge you the price of the original item.
Morrisons are looking to take on more staff to ensure smooth running and offer more delivery slots plus a new call centre so the elderly and people who are not internet savvy can order their groceries over the phone which is a great idea!
They do a delivery pass too.
Mid-Week Options (Tuesday - Thursday)
Link your Morrisons More reward card to your account to earn points and bonuses.
Home deliveries start from only £2 if you order for delivery at a less popular time and click and collect is free at certain times too. You are more likely to get a click and collect slot at the moment than a delivery.
If you accept a substitution and it is a higher price, you will pay the higher price at Morrisons but you don't have to accept it and you can return it to the driver for a refund if you don't want it.
