I'm feeling a bit miffed about Tesco delivery saver as they have sent an e mail saying that from 23rd July the minimum spend will be £40 (not £25) and the surcharge for a too-small basket is £4.
Now I have to say that I have wondered how Tesco could be making a profit on the previous set-up but it is still a blow to me.
A single person (pensioner) household does not use £40 worth of groceries each week. There are some weeks when I don't have an order at all. I have sometimes made my order up to £25 by buying postage stamps but even I don't write enough letters to make £40 weekly orders feasible.
However, I think it would cost at least £5 to visit my nearest supermarket so I don't think I shall be taking up their offer of a refund. I may just have a delivery once or maybe twice a month. Some things I need to buy weekly (salad springs to mind) so during the summer months I shall be visiting the small greengrocery stall which sets up in Caistor twice a week.
And whatever I decide it makes good stock control even more imperative.
