Just click to add an item to the cart. While continuing to shop on the website, the shopping trolley will be constantly on the right side for easy reference. Additionally there will be a comment "1 in trolley" if you come across the product again in the product page or subsequent searches.
To make weekly shopping more convenient you can create a list of products and then click on the little icon at the bottom right of the trolley. These are maintained under the Favorites tab. While shopping and adding more items to the cart, if you click the icon again the list will be updated with the new items. The next time you order just pop into Favorites and add all the items with a click of a button.
Once done with shopping proceed to the checkout. Here is where you choose a time slot for delivery. Technically there is a charge of RM10 for each delivery but Tesco constantly has promotions and coupon codes. With all that I've never had to outright pay for delivery before.
The best thing about making an order with Tesco Online is that until 11pm the day before the delivery time slot, you can make as many changes as you like to your order list. Honestly that is pretty awesome because all it takes is a few clicks of the mouse. Forgive me but I'm all in love with a local online shopping website that actually works so seamlessly! Cancellations are allowed but changes to the address or time slot are not possible.
As I understand it on the day of the delivery, a personal shopper is dispatched to collect items from your order in store - Tesco Online FAQ. Then at the designated time slot (2-hour window) a special Tesco truck shows up. It's got different compartments for refrigerated meats, vegetables and regular (dry) products. All the items ordered are in plastic bags in these little blue crates. The always super friendly Tesco delivery man then rolls these stacked crates on a cart right up to your door. Drops off every single item inside your house.
Sometimes certain products may be out of stock on that day so you will be offered substitutions. You can choose to accept or refuse these items. As an example here's the substitutions on my recent order.
The only form of payment accepted at the moment is a credit card on delivery. Confirm the acceptance of order, make the payment and with that it's another successful order with Tesco Online. I simply cannot recommend it enough!
- Sign up for the newsletter and keep an eye out for the banners on the front page for coupon codes. Don't worry the newsletters are not too often i.e. spammy.
- If the delivery is not a priority wait for coupons so you can save on the RM10 delivery charge. The delivery charge isn't much anyways especially for ordering heavy items.
- Use the My Shopping List feature for future deliveries.
- There is a list of Favorites which keeps track of every item ordered in the past and can be added to the trolley easily.
- Add your Clubcard information to keep earning points even when shopping online.
- When placing the order take note of when promotions end. If the delivery date is after the promotion price has ended, you will be charged the regular price.
