    So I do tesco online shopping, and have for a month or so now. Its always been great. A few random substitutes here and there, but nothing too bad.
    Then yesterday evening my shopping turns up.
    The man in the van pulls up, his side shutter with all shopping in is OPEN. He gets out and goes 'oops, left my shutter open''I just laughed it off and took my shopping and he left.
    I get all my stuff out to put away... and notice ALL my eggs are broken.
    I noticed my ski yoghurts have all burst so I binned them and I noticed that my courgettes are all bashed up.
    So yeah I was pissed off but I got over it and didnt think it worth it to complain, Til I wake up this morning for some toast, and discover my bread WENT OFF YESTERDAY!!!
    I was fuming! Who the hell eats a loaf of bread in an evening?!
    So thats my breakfast(eggs) and my lunch (bread and yoghurts) gone for the next week. I called up and complained, I said its not easy for me to get out and go shopping (lies) lol. She refunded me... but im still without food for breakfast and lunches for the week, and now at my inconvinence I have to go replace those things at tesco.. and the reason I shop online is to avoid having to go to that hell hole in the first place!!

    Tescos do this a lot!
    They always sub items too,I never shop online with them.
    Asda are bit better but Sainsburys seem to get best reviews and actually deliver what you want and not sell by date about to go!

    Ocado is meant to be fab,costs bit more but everyone raves about them and they do do good BOGOFS ETC

    omg :o

    how annoying for you!

    glad you got a refundthough, not much help when you gotta go out and replace, defeats the point but better having a refund than a waste of food!

    i do my shopping online with tesco as i am now unable to get out much due to my spd, and i always make sure that on certain items(bread,milk,eggs,sandwich stuff) i fill out the 'edit note' section to put "long date please" and i have aways pleased to find that they do have good dates on them!! (**touches wood for tomorrows delivery**)

    That's why I won't use home delivery ~ I've heard too many horror stories!

    On another forum I'm on, someone said they ordered a certain brand of washing powder tablets and the Supermarket had substituted them with.......


    A multipack of Wotsits. :shock::shock::shock:

    She said her whites had never been the same since :rofl::rofl::rofl:


    Or someone who wanted a jif lemon (you know the kind you cook with/put on pancakes) and she got sent lemon CIF. (Bathroom cleaner)

    Or someone else who wanted a tin of mushrooms and they sent out a bag of those pink and white penny sweet mushrooms ~ the mind boggles! :rofl:

    What a nightmare, grrr

    We have used both Sainsbury's and Asda. Sainsbury's kept substituting things for more expensive things and then charging me the extra, even when I had ticked no subs. And Asda have managed to get it to use on time twice (out of 20 times :rofl:), they were once as late as 11.30pm for shopping that should of been here by 9pm, I was mad, they are constantly messing up, they do refund delivery charge everytime time they are late, and if they mess up the order (and let you keep the items), and when they were really late they gave me my £60 shopping for free, and refunded me some credit cos I had use so much calling them :happydance:
