Customers can only purchase certain items via a Whoosh delivery with Tesco’s website showing around 80 that can be bought.
The 80 items range from everyday essentials, fruit and vegetables, breakfast basics, alcohol, evening meals, and Tesco’s finest.
Tesco charges anywhere between £3.50 and £7 for a one-off delivery slot depending on the time of the delivery, with an added £4 if the shop is under £40.
Last year, it launched “Delivery Saver” options for customers which allows them to pay monthly, or upfront, for their food shop delivery costs.
Tesco offers a 12-month plan and a six-month plan, with a choice of off-peak and anytime delivery and anytime click and collect.
It costs £4.99 per month for six months or £29.94 upfront for an Off-Peak Delivery Pass, where delivery is free after 3pm and same-day click-and-collect is available.
