It claims that shoppers could save up to £100 by signing up to six months under the Delivery Saver scheme. The scheme is similar to the Delivery Pass offered by rival Ocado.
The scheme, which launches nationwide today (30 May), offers Tesco.com customers the option to pay upfront for delivery for a three or six-month period.
Ken Towle, internet retailing director at Tesco, says: “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.”
It is part of the supermarket’s wider investment into its UK business and into online shopping and follows CEO Philip Clarke’s statement at the start of the year that ‘bricks and clicks’ will be key to the turnaround of the UK business.
It comes as Tesco roles out click and collect for its F&F fashion brand to metro stores in central London for the first time. LINK.
Customers will be charged £36 for 13 weeks/three months of delivery fees. Six months will cost £60.
Tesco currently generates online sales over £2bn annually.
