5 Tips for online grocery shopping at TESCO e-shop

Last month, we made our first grocery purchase at TESCO’s e-shop and shared a step-by-step tutorial. We’ve also mentioned the 10 disadvantages of shopping online with TESCO.

However, we continued to shop online and made more purchases in the last month. We have learned a few tricks that will make the experience better. Here are some tips:

1. Be prepared that fresh items might not be available
Unlike clothes which are not perishable, fresh produce arrives daily and might not be available on some days.

So do expect that the fresh dory fillet might not be available and be replaced with frozen fillet instead. Make a mental note that if that happens, whether you will accept it or whether dinner can still go on without.

2. Order by weight instead of by quantity
This is not a big deal, but you might want to order items by kg (e.g 1 kg) instead of quantity (e.g 5 pieces). We’ve ordered some potatoes by quantity and they are all wrapped in separate plastic!

3. Return items you don’t like
You don’t have to accept items that you do not like. It’s clear in TESCO’s policy.

4. Order a replacement
If you have to make an important dish using fresh ingredient that may not be available, order another replacement. For example, you may want to order portabello mushroom on top of dutch button mushroom…just in case.

We like how TESCO lets you choose only items that you like. However, do it only sparingly. You don’t want the poor delivery guy to take home heaps of items back.

5. Get ready your credit/debit card
When your order arrives, you will have to deal with the delivery person, check whether items are up to your standard, reject/accept substituted items and sign some receipts. It’s smart to prepare your card ahead of time to make this process smoother.

    Some reviewers were novice sewers and others were already
    veterans of utilizing electric sewing machines. Now simply
    thread the needle by holding it along with your left hand and slowly turning the thread wheel
    along with your right. Do pursuit before making an order,
    and completely understand what you’re looking for in the leather sewing machine.

    Relationships are not a one way street and the sooner you figure that out, the better off you will be.
    They can hone your reflexes and response skills during the several events happening on the screen. The result is what
    I feel is a superior grip and button layout in the LX5.

  4. An interesting discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you need to
    publish more about this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people do not discuss such topics.
    To the next! Cheers!!

    Have you ever spared a thought on answering is it safe to use this mode of shopping.
    Many e-stores also offer discounts over traditional brick
    and mortar outlets as they ship goods out from a central warehouse
    and can afford to pass on those savings to
    the consumer. Buying a jacket that matches your size will almost always provide you with
    the right fit.
