Advantages: EXCELLENT SERVICE
Disadvantages: DELIVERY COSTS
The good thing about shopping on line is that there are no queues to stand in, no heavy bags to lug around. Shopping with tesco on line is the same value as if you were shopping on line but without all the hassle. It can take less than 15 minutes to complete your shopping.
Once you have registered with Tesco and entered your postcode, to ensure that they will deliver in your area, there are 5 easy steps to shopping on line.
a) go to www.tesco.com, click on groceries and enter your password
b) if you are a first time user, follow the instructions on your screen, or if you have shopped in store with a Clubcard since registering, then go to ?my favourites?
c) Select your items until your order is complete
d) Go to the checkout, choose a convenient delivery time and pay for your groceries
e) Send your order off with a click and get on with your life.
When you log on you will find your favourites on the left hand of the screen. Once you start shopping, you will be able to see what you bought last time.
You will find that all the in-store special offers are available on line too. Every offer is marked with a red background on the virtual isles. There is also a link to a page giving the nutritional value of the food or if it is suitable if you have an allergy by clicking the lifestyle button . The special offers are listed on the home page, or you can click on ?departments? on the left hand side of the screen, then ?special offers?. If you select a product that?s on special offer and the promotion is due to end before your chosen delivery date, Tesco will let you know so you can decide what to do.
In order to shop you can use the express shopper route or click on the relevant department and select the item you want.
If you can?t find an item on your list, then you can go to the express shopper. All you have to do then is type in what you want and they will
take you right to the shelf.
In order to do this you
a) Type your shopping list on the notepad, putting each item on each line
b) Click on ?go shopping? button when your list is finished
c) Tesco will show you the first product choices on screen. Simply add the one you want to your basket.
d) The rest of your shopping will show on the left of the screen. Select the next product on your list and express shopper will take you there.
e) You can also look for items by using the search box on top left of your screen
Shopping on-line does not stop at your weekly groceries. You can buy just about anything you need. The departments include:
A range of top brand names, low prices and clubcard points on everything you buy
Every CD and minidisc on UK release ? all at amazing prices
All the latest releases, order in advance and fantastic offers on blockbusters
Tesco have over 1.2 million titles to choose from. Keeps me off the streets.
Every game on UK release delivered to your door. Ideal.
(HiC) They have a wide selection of wines. (on-line drinking), but prefer going to the pub
YOU AND YOUR CHILD
Parents and parents to be can learn, chat and shop.
Say it with flowers and buy from a wide range of flowers. A bouquet from £25 comes with free delivery
Fashion for all the family. You can even save up to 50% on some clothes (someone cut them in half)
TESCO PERSONAL FINANCE
Not too sure if I would go with this, but, they like all other shops these days, who are diversifying and offering other services, Tesco, can give you loans, insurance and credit cards at a click of the button. Sounds too easy. (subject to the terms and conditions of cours
However, one thing they do not tell you is that there is a charge of £5 for delivery. But what you have to way up is that you can spend time doing other less stressful things. I have found that they delivery on time, I have had no problems that I can think of and have been able to get everything that I wanted.
I think shopping in this format means that you will not go and buy everything on the shelf, as you do when you go into a shop, even though you do not need it. It also means that you can have a bite to eat before you do your shopping and not buy the whole store because you are hungry.
The good thing is that you can book delivery times on any day of the week, though limited times on Sundays. Tesco will then deliver within a chosen (of your choice) 2 hour time slot, for example between 1pm and 3pm.
It also takes the fun out of shopping a little. After all you miss all the shopping trolley fights, pushing into people, arguing with staff as there is nothing on the shelves and all the bread has gone.
