Tesco up minimum spend for online shopping

8 July 2015

tesco Tesco are seemingly intent on annoying absolutely everyone in the UK at the moment. So what are they up to now?

Well, they've just announced that, from 23rd July 2015, the minimum basket spend for those of you who shop online for groceries, will change from £25 to £40.

Of course, you can still spend below that amount, but if you do, you'll find yourself paying the £4 surcharge. No such charge will apply if your order falls below £40, thanks to substitutions or unavailable items, but either way, that's going to be quite the jump for some customers.

You can use your Clubcard vouchers to pay for your Delivery Saver, which you can find out about over at www.tesco.com/clubcard.

However, if you were using Tesco because they were cheaper than a lot of their rivals, the retailer may well find people thinking that they may as well shop elsewhere.

    Yet again Tesco annoys and pushes its loyal customers away. They never learn, they are greedy and without one ounce of loyalty to its customers. If they have made loses, it is only on previous profits, they are hardly struggling. I find it impossible to want feel I would ever want to shop here again, they do too much to short change the customer. They downgraded their points scheme many years ago which I found almost unforgivable, they have become more expensive over the last couple of years, and now this. There are other supermarkets out there, plenty of them! Perhaps customers should give up on Tesco, especially the delivery saver...shop at one of the other supermarkets which are cheaper anyway. Shame on you Tesco! You give with one hand, and take from the other.

    Terrible greedy company, people should leave the delivery saver scheme, stop shopping at Tesco as much as possible or completely! They downgraded the points scheme, upped their prices, then took away another decent reason for shopping with them...run out of reasons now I'm afraid...plenty more supermarkets.
