Last chance to beat Tesco’s new Click and Collect delivery charge on small orders

On 9th of January Rob wrote about changes to the Tesco Direct Click and Collect service from early February.  The day is about to arrive and I thought it was worth a reminder.  There is still time to sneak in a last minute order without paying!

Starting tomorrow (2nd February) Tesco Direct will be adding a £2 delivery charge on Click and Collect orders under £30.

If you were planning to order items for less than £30, today is the last day you won’t have to pay.  If you were thinking of ordering any small items for yourself, for presents etc then do it now.  However, orders over £30 will keep being delivered for free to your nearest Tesco store.

Click Collect

There is one way of avoiding this charge.

If you are a Delivery Saver customer, the minimum spend for free next day Click and Collect orders is only £10.   You can currently claim a one month free trial of Delivery Saver – the lower Click & Collect minimum spend is not the only benefit as Rob wrote on 4th January and it may be worth signing up.

  1. If I order over £30 worth of goods but then decide that one of the items is no good, will TESCO refund the whole amount of the item or deduct £2? I quite often order clothes in two sizes to see which one fits better and then return one. Sometimes I order an item of clothing that just doesn’t look good in real life. I understand TESCO is trying to recoup some of the costs of small orders but is it going to penalize customers as well? If I place an order for say £37 and then return one item for £8, I will not be a happy camper if it costs me £2 for the privilege of buying at TESCO!

    • I reckon you’re safe, and if not a quick call to customer services (who I have found very good recently) should fix it.

  2. The Delivery saver programme if found on an offer is actually really good value based on these new changes. Free next day delivery to home on direct which is usually £3 plus, free wine delivery and clothing and next day click n collect to store for anything. Forgot to mention free delivery of your weekly groceries all year.

  3. It is good value but it is far more convenient to drop in to my local Tesco whenever I want rather than have things delivered. Also when I am in the store I often buy other things, not so good for my wallet but great for Tesco!

  1. […] The minimum ‘click and collect’ order size for free delivery is now £30.  This means that adding £30-worth to your basket would be sensible.  If Tesco accused you of bulk buying then this would be your excuse. […]
