It’s been a while since I updated my comparison of supermarkets that do home deliveries, so here is my research of the following online grocery providers – Waitrose, Ocado, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda. I know that Iceland delivers, but I find that their range is limited, so I am not including them.
I evaluated the supermarkets on the followting and in each category, the top supermarket comes in at position 1. Of course, one position 1 doesn’t mean everything is fanastic, so my top supermarket is the one that has the highest number of 1s and 2s, and this time we have joint winners: Ocado and Tesco, but remember if you want quality food, go to Waitrose, but be ready to pay more…it’s really up to you, but I hope that my research will …
Yep, you read it right, a penny cheaper than Asda! So Morrisons have got a promo on at the mo, where some vegetables are super cheap. I bought carrots, brocollis, potatoes for 28 p each, and there were other veggies there too.
It really is heating up in the supermarket wars! And the pack sizes are not stingy either at Morrisons. The carrots are 1kg for 28 p, would have been 68 p normally. Brocolli which tends to be around 49 p for the cheapest and 500 g swede which would be around 50 – 75 p normally.
Oh and if you can’t get to Morrisons store, go and shop on line as most of the same discounts apply, though I couldn’t find the potatoes.…
In the recent Channel 4 Dispatches Supermarket Wars, a supermarket shopping site/app was mentioned. Well it was Mysupermarket.com. I’ve had a few queries looking for it, so I thought I’d give you some useful facts about it.
What is Mysupermarket.com?
Mysupermarket.com is more than a price comparison site. The independent site allows users to shop across 9 stores to optimise their grocery shop.
It does a lot of number crunching and analysis of information that it gathers, and that raw data is turned into digestible information that customers can use each time they shop.
What are the most useful things I can use the website for?
There are a range of cool features that help users to make the best shopping decisions:
– Throughout the customer journey, a user can view a Trolley comparison…
Watched dispatches Supermarket Wars tonight. It was interesting to see how the Big Four supermarket sales are stagnating or decreasing while they are growing by 23% for Lidl and 39% at Aldi.
While the discount stores aren’t pretty, one of the reasons they can keep their prices low is that they don’t offer the variety as do larger supermarkets.
On average supermarkets stock 30,000 different products while discounters stock 1,000+ items. So less products, mean less storage, people needed and costs.
One lady said she would have spent £100 at Sainsbury’s but instead she got her shop for £53.
However, the discounters are not only for the cash strapped, but are also offering a small range of “posh nosh” which helps to change middle-class consumers’ perceptions. I wrote last week about the riding gear special …
My nearest Asda was seven miles away until last week, so I thought I’d take a look at the new store which is a mere three miles away now, and I was impressed.
I came out with my weekly shop, clothes, shoes and bits and pieces for the house for less than £150.
I was particularly impressed with the George range of clothes. I know they have been around for ages, but Asda has never really been accessible to me, so I was thrilled to pick up men’s jeans at £6 a pop – great for every day, gardening etc, older boys sleeveless school shirts at £5 for two, a couple of kids t-shirts at £4 each, £7 kids sweatshirt and £8 canvas pumps.
I am not sure if Asda is classed as a discount …
From prices, delivery costs to minimum order value and customer service, which online grocery store wins my comparison?
You may know that I shop at Aldi and supplement that shop with Co-operative or Morrisons, but sometimes I have a lot on and need to save time, so I go online.
I haven’t shopped online since September 2013 for groceries, so I thought I would check out what’s new and have put my research here in my attempt to see which is the best online grocery store on paper. I looked at Asda, Ocado, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. I thought about adding Waitrose but they do have a reputation for being expensive, and after five days their customer service hadn’t got back to me about my online grocery queries, so I left them out.
Here are my …
I have been shopping at Aldi since September to save for Christmas last year. I may go back to online shopping for convenience, so I decided to check my Aldi shop against the same/or very similar items from Tescos, Sainbury’s, Ocado and Asda. I already supplement my Aldi shop at Co-op and/or Morrisons, so they don’t come into this experiment.
I bought my Aldi shop on 25 January and did the online shops on 26 January to make it fair. I selected own brand or cheapest similar products from the other stores. For example, I selected Premier Sausages from Aldi, so the equivalent would be Finest sausages from Tesco.
Sainsbury’s was the overall winner at £36.64, with Tesco following at £37.59. By shopping at Aldi I saved £9.74 from the nearest competitor. Prices below are …
