Since the Coronavirus outbreak and the lockdowns, shopping for groceries online has increased significantly. With long queues in supermarkets, more people find shopping online to be much easier and convenient.
If you are interested in shopping for groceries online and you want to know some good sites to place an order, you are in the right place. Below are 6 of the best sites for online grocery shopping in 2021.
If you haven’t already guessed from the name, AmazonFresh delivers fresh food from different quality brands to their customers. Immediately your order is ready, it will be delivered and left on your doorstep (and even better; you can get it delivered on the same day if you want!) The doorstep delivery is a part of Covid-19 measures to reduce contact and risk of transmission. Restricted for now only to London and the southeast of the UK, their service is exclusive to Prime members who pay 7.99 a month (though you get a free trial for 30 days). The delivery fee costs £3.99, but free for orders above £40.
Another great site for online grocery shopping is Morrisons. They are perfect for purchasing various essential products at impressively affordable prices. Notably, they have a feature called Morrisons Food Box which packages all the ingredients necessary for your weekly meals. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? The minimum spend on the site is £40, with delivery prices beginning from £2.
No, not the country. Iceland is an online grocery store that is popular for delivering frozen food, though it is not restricted to just this. You can also buy fresh food, drinks, household items, and other products. Known for its low prices, Iceland has a section on their website where you can buy pantry essentials for impressively £1 or less. The store has a £25 minimum spend, but if you purchase products worth £35 or more, you get free delivery the next day.
Waitrose is known for its wide selection of fresh food and pantry snacks. Their website and application are both easy to use, with all categories of products they offer labelled. The minimum spend for home delivery is £40.
Tesco is by far the biggest grocery store on our list. With no minimum spend, you can easily shop on their site or with their mobile application. You can choose whether your order should be delivered on the same day or you could schedule it for another day. They cover most of the UK.
This is another store with low, affordable prices. Their website is easy and quick to use; you have a unique option to search for multiple products at once. There is also a Favourites tab that gives you recommendations based on your recent orders. Asda also has a range of groceries; fresh, frozen, and chilled. One cost-effective feature is that there is no minimum spend, so you can spend as low as you want. However, deliveries below £40 cost £3, which is fair enough if you think of it.
Whether you like it or not, the world is largely internet-based, and sometimes we have no choice but to catch up with all of the important trends.
