Tips on Shopping for Groceries Online

 
You will need an email account and an address for delivery to shop for your groceries online. It is as easy as filling in a form and chosing what you want and when.

Use a credit card that gives you cash back on purchases for your online shopping to protect your money and receive rewards.

Shopping online from the supermarket can unburden you from having to deal the heavy items. You can browse multiple offers quickly and compare prices easily.

Substitutions may occur and some breakages will inevitably happen but not very often and the supermarkets are good at refunding the cost of broken or damaged products.

Buying bulk items will reduce the overall individual cost of the item

Which supermarket chain charges the least for delivery and is the quickest at delivering your groceries

All of the leading supermarkets give free delivery to orders over a certain amount, generally £75-£100. There is a minimum spend amount that has to be met before you can have anything delivered.

Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose and Asda offer a click and collect service. Groceries can be pre-ordered and collected from the nominated store later. Ocado only exists online but does have free delivery most days after 10pm.
 


 
Reward cards or reward schemes are a good way to receive offers and special deals. All the supermarkets offer them and will mostly reward you with incentives to continue shopping with them, for example a bottle of wine free with next order or £10 off next order.

According to a Which supermarket customer survey of 2,161 in October 2012. Acado and Waitrose came out top for online service with Sainsburys scoring a little less for fresh produce quality. Tesco and Asda fell behind on delivery service, placing the order and substitutions.
