Asda changes minimum spend on home deliveries to £40
There's going to be some furrowed brows and promises to shop elsewhere as Asda have changed the minimum spend terms & conditions for a home delivery.
Previously, the minimum you spend was £25, meaning you could get a weekly shop delivered to you and not worry too much about your spuds growing tentacles and your salad leaves not liquefying in the kitchen.
However, that's all changed and now, similar to Tesco, the minimum spend for an Asda home delivery is £40. Read more about this here. and link to free shipping coupon (if there is one).
The delivery pass gives unlimited deliveries over a 12-month period for £60, seven days a week, or £24 per year if you can receive deliveries midweek. They also offer a so-called guarantee that if the pass doesn't save you more than the spend for standard delivery, they'll give a voucher for the difference. If you want to give it a go, you can read more about it here.
There's some grumbles online too. One Asda customers ranted on Twitter: "Not happy with @asda @AsdaServiceTeam changing their minimum home delivery from £25 to £40. You've just lost a customer. Next stop @Tesco"
Another said much the same thing: "So pissed off that @asda is now doing £40 minimum spend on food shop home delivery's ... guess ill be buying from Tesco's now."
Another added: "No longer a happy customer. Since [when] did you have to spend minimum £40 for home delivery?! @AsdaServiceTeam @asda"
So, by the looks of things, Tesco will be doing alright in the coming weeks, who still have a £25 minimum spend on their grocery delivery service. Other supermarkets are available...
And if you're in the mood for some free shipping, if you register for Tesco's Delivery Saver, they'll give you free delivery for a month (with a free trial). And in the fine print, is outlines that "you can change your mind and switch, or cancel, at any time during the trial." So, go get yourself some free grocery deliveries!
