Advantages Very easy to use website
Disadvantages Not all your shopping will arrive
Trying to following in the footsteps of the mighty Tesco, Asda have jumped on the bandwagon and you can now order your shopping via the internet (www.asda.co.uk).Once you have checked that they deliver to your area (you put your postcode in and the website will tell you), it is very easy to register your address and debit/credit card details and then off you go.
Once you have entered the groceries section you are asked to pick a delivery date and time (the available dates and times are shown on an easy to read calendar) and then you can begin to shop. The delivery times are within a 2-hour window (eg: your shopping will be delivered between 6pm and 8pm). Your delivery time and date are then held for your for the next 3 hours or until you checkout, whichever is the earlier.
The meat and fish aisle is the trickiest as you very often need to know the amount in weight that you will need so this can take some getting used to.As you click and add items to your basket, the items appear in your shopping list on the right hand side, along with a running total of how much you have spent (the delivery charge of £3.99 is added when you check out). This is very handy for knowing how much you have spent for those who need to stick to a budget.
One good facility is that you can set up shopping lists - for example if there are things that you buy every week you can set up a special list for this and then when you come to doing your weekly shop you can add these items to your basket with one click of a button.Once you come to check out you are shown a printable list of all the items you have ordered, together with details of your debit/credit card, and the amount that you will be charged. There is a note at the bottom to say that your total amount may change due to changes of price in the shop on the day your products are picked. A receipt is then sent to you via e-mail.
Here you have the option of asking that a substitute item be picked for you should a product you have ordered is out of stock (see delivery for details).If at a later date you realise you have forgotten to add something to your list, provided you are earlier than 5pm on the day before your delivery, you can go back to the website and easily amend your list. You than have to go through the checkout proceedure again and a revised list will be e-mailed to you.
