To make things easier, we've put all the information you should know below.

When are Tesco's Easter delivery slots being released?

If you're hoping to get your online Easter shopping done at Tesco, you might be pleased to hear that delivery slots are now available to those who are signed up to the supermarket’s Delivery Saver service.

The subscription service is priced from £3.49 a month and gives customers a chance to secure a delivery slot four weeks before non-members.

The scheme is only available for existing customers so that Tesco can help support vulnerable customers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Those who aren't already signed up to the Delivery Saver plan will be able to book an Easter delivery slot at Tesco from Monday, March 15.

How do I book a slot?

To book a slot at Tesco, you need to sign up for an online account at tesco.com/groceries and log in. Priority slots are available for vulnerable customers.

If your basket comes to under £40, then a £4 surcharge will be added. Standard delivery usually costs between £4.50 and £5.50.

What shall I do if I can't get a slot?

If you don't manage to get a delivery slot, there's still the option to shop in store or you can use Tesco’s click and collect service.

To find out where your nearest branch of Tesco is, you can use its online locator tool here.

Tesco's opening hours usually vary over the Easter break, so it's best to keep your eyes peeled for any updates.

The supermarket's click and collect service will cost you £1.50 if your order is under £25, otherwise it's free.
