Tesco Is Encouraging Shoppers To Pay A £2.49 Fee Every Month

Tesco Is Encouraging Shoppers To Pay A £2.49 Fee Every Month

The supermarket giant's scheme is ideal for the more organised among us

Tesco is trying to get customers to save money by paying £2.49 every month to shop with them.

With the cost of living crisis taking its hold on the country, millions of households are struggling to make ends meet.

In a bid to help reduce people's outgoings, the supermarket giant has introduced a series of delivery saver schemes.

The first is priced at £2.49 a month (for six months) and allows customers to book same-day click and collect orders as and when they like, when they spend at least £25.

The next level up is an off-peak tariff and will set you back £4.99. This also includes a £25 minimum spend for same-day click and collect, and a £40 minimum for next-day home delivery.

However, unlike the basic option, it doesn't allow for priority collections during the Christmas period.

The top tier plan is priced at £7.99 and gets you everything, including same-day delivery and collection, peak deliveries, and priority deliveries during Christmas and Easter.

And if you're a really organised shopper, each plan also allows you to book up to four weeks in advance.

There are also 12-month membership options for the off-peak delivery and anytime delivery plans, which take the prices down from £4.99 to £3.99 and from £7.99 to £6.99, respectively.

But if that's not sold you just yet, this might.

Clubcard members can also convert their points into cash to go towards the cost of their chosen delivery plan.

So for every 50p in clubcard vouchers someone accumulates, they can redeem £1.50 in reward partner codes, which can be used against the cost of any delivery plan.

The plans are perfect for organised shoppers.

The value of the codes is evenly split between the months payable.

It seems to have gone down well with a few of those who've already signed up.

One excited customer said: "Excellent plan, shopping from home is great. Every delivery driver is a credit to Tesco, helpful, friendly and very polite. Highly recommend Delivery Saver."

While another added: "Six months free deliveries for just £16 - bargain!"

If you're really dedicated, though, you could be like this lad, who got his clubcard tattooed to his arm, so he never misses out on those sweet, sweet points.

Dean Mayhew, from London, was sick of completing a big shop to find that he'd left his card at home. We all know the pain.

So he invested £200 in getting his card's QR code inked on his wrist, meaning he can shop and scan whenever he wants.

Top work, Dean.
