    Default Coles/woolies online grocery shopping.

    Is it good?
    Easier? Anything I need to know?

    I'm doing our grocery shop online tonight (most likely with Coles)
    And just wanted to know if any other Hubbers do there food shopping this way?

    I really dislike grocery shopping.
    Dd is at that age where she doesn't want to sit in a trolly and it becomes a stressful event.

    Thanks in advance

    I do Coles and I like it, I don't buy fruit and veg that way though just the meat, pantry, and fridge freezer stuff. Only because I like to pick my own.
    Woolies has a really high delivery charge if you arnt spending much.

    I shop online all the time. I've been using Coles for about a year now. I can't fault the quality or staff that deliver it. Best part is its delivered up my front stairs to my kitchen bench for $7. Best $7 I spend fortnightly/monthly!

    I absolutely love it. Total convert and haven't been to the shops in months. $6 delivered and so far they haven't mucked anything up, either. The only thing is all the products cost slightly more. I think it's up to about 10% overall on my bill. So it depends if that extra, hidden cost is worth it to you.

    Yes I've used both when I can't be bothered like when I was heavily pregnant, saves money too coz u avoid the impulse buys. The delivery charge sometimes is very cheap if you have all day to wait, but it varies. Service is good and the groceries arrive in perfect condition and are transported in a refrigerated truck. Oh and Coles especially give you sample stuff based on your grocery purchases :-) yay for free stuff! The only thing I don't like is that if they don't have an item and you don't get it or you can select for them to replace with a similar item but u don't choose what that would be, they do it for you.

    I've been using Coles online for nearly 2 years. I pay $8 as I'm a bit further out.
    Overall they've never forgotten anything, just sometimes put something in by mistake (yay!)
    I loathe the supermarket, it gives me anxiety. So I use this all the time.

    I've had the deliveries & love it - if there's ever been a problem I've had no trouble getting a refund. At the moment though I'm addicted to click & collect (Woolies, not sure if Coles offer it too). I order nearly everything online, & book a collection time at my nearest store. Then go in & choose my own fruit & veg, check for meat / bread specials that are in store but not online; & once I've paid for those just collect everything else from the service desk. I like to choose my own fruit & veg, but don't have to spend an hour walking the aisles getting everything else! And it's free

    I like it but I find even when I click "no substitutes", I get substitutes, normally things like sending me white bread over wholemeal which drives me insane.

    I find I spend a little bit more on overall costs, but I do save on impulse buys as someone else said, so it probably all evens out.

    I don't really like online food shopping as I find it takes ages. Also I like to pick my own fruit and veg so for me it just isn't worth while.

    However, I do love how you can buy alcohol with your food shop and get it delivered on a Friday or Saturday night!

    I used Woolies' website to do my grocery shopping when I was heavily pregnant and when DS was a newborn. They never substituted anything they shouldn't, and I never had any trouble with the quality of meat and vegetables. Definitely recommend it.
