Quick commerce newcomer Beelivery has a unique business model: their drivers personally scour the supermarket to pack and pick your order. Delivery is within about minutes, so slightly longer than services like Weezy, but if for whatever reason you can’t get to the shops yourself, it could be a viable alternative for getting hold of essentials. The other advantage it has over Gorillas et al is that they cover a far wider area – 90 per cent of UK postcodes. The website and app are not quite as slick as its competitors, but are still easy to use.
Which supermarket has the lowest minimum spend for delivery?
Asda, Gorillas and Weezy are the only online grocery sites to offer zero minimum spend for delivery. Others, like Ocado, have minimum spends up to £40. Asda’s minimum spend does have a caveat, as orders less than £40 cost an additional £3. With cost of low-priced essentials up by as much as two-thirds this winter, shoppers are looking for cheaper delivery services to balance out the cost of online shopping.
Which supermarket does same day delivery?
Asda, Tesco, Amazon Fresh, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Iceland, Morrisons, Gorillas and Weezy all offer same day delivery. It’s certainly a growing trend in supermarket delivery in this era of convenience, but make sure to read on below as most come with extra cost.
How to get a supermarket delivery slot
In the case of most supermarkets, it’s simply a case of heading to the preferred website and clicking through to book a slot online for your chosen time, choosing your groceries, making sure you’ve received a confirmation email, and then waiting for delivery. Lots of supermarkets these days are also available via takeaway delivery apps like Deliveroo, Just Eat or Uber Eats. They haven’t replaced ordering on supermarket websites, they’re just an addition.
