New Tesco delivery scheme helps customers save up to £100
Tesco, the nation’s biggest supermarket, has announced plans to give customers savings of up to £100 on their online food shopping, thanks to a new subscription service for delivery.
Delivery Saver, which launches nationwide today Wednesday, offers Tesco.com customers across the UK the option to pay once and have groceries delivered at no extra cost for either a three-month or a six-month period.
Shoppers signing up for six months could save up to £100 on delivery charges, based on one £6 delivery per week and one extra delivery for a special occasion.
Ken Towle, Internet Retailing Director at Tesco, said: “We listened to what our customers told us they wanted, and Delivery Saver is the result. It’s simple to use and will save money at a difficult time for many families. Customers can choose from all available delivery slots, so shopping arrives at the most convenient time. Best of all, if you get regular home deliveries it will quickly pay for itself – and the more you use the service, the more you save.”
Tesco is the first supermarket to offer this service on a nationwide scale, which is part of the supermarket’s wider investment into its UK business and into online shopping.
The supermarket is leading the way in the new era of retailing with innovations that make shopping easier and more convenient for its customers.
Since its pioneering launch in 1997, Tesco’s grocery home delivery service has grown to be the world’s largest online grocery retailer with sales of well over £2 billion. Customers buy from the UK’s biggest range of online food, with over 25,000 own brand and branded products.
The nationwide roll out of Delivery Saver follows a successful trial with Tesco customers in the South West, covering 37 stores. It is being rolled out nationally following positive customer feedback.
