Disadvantages Don't always get what you want
I first used Tesco home delivery when I was too ill to go to the supermarket myself. In principle it IS a good idea although using it and getting what you want isn't so good.The average delierry cost is about £5 it's cheaper if you opt for late at night for example between 9pm and 11pm and more expensive at weekends or tea time.
The site itself is does take some getting used to. I find I have to write a detailed list of the items I need otherwise I am sat there for hours trying to shop!You also need a knowledge of the metric system, you can't buy 3 tomatoes for examples you need to buy by weight or pack.
I find it good to look through all the offers first, the multi-buys, buy one get one free's etc.. this way you can get the cost of delivery back, if you know what I mean?!You can have it delivered either in carrier bags or not and the driver will bring your items into you kitchen if you wish. If you choose the carrier bag option though you have to empty all the items out and give the bags back for recycling which can be annoying at times.
When the driver brings it to your door he will advise you of subsitutions, items which were not available when Tesco did your shop so they have therefore sent an alternative. You CAN refuse these and they are deducted from your bill. Mine have usually been bradly similar but more expensive.I've now used them 5 or 6 times mostly out of lazyness now if honest, I've had only one instance of them delivering late (2 hours and no call to advise!) and subsitutions made on every shop!
