Should I shop at Asda? Tesco? Sainsbury’s? Morrisons? Iceland? Our guide to the cheapest online supermarkets shows you how to get the cheapest groceries online.

Shopping online comes with its many benefits, with the things we need the most dropped off on our doorsteps without us ever having to leave our sofas.

For clothes, it’s probably Boohoo. For gadgets, maybe Amazon and eBay. But for groceries, who are the cheapest online supermarkets?

That's delivery sorted, which supermarket's cheapest?


Although Aldi was named cheapest supermarket of the year by Which?, unfortunately, there's no online delivery option with this supermarket.

Depending on the groceries you're looking to purchase, prices can change and the cheapest supermarket for some items may end up more expensive for other items. Fortunately, there are supermarket comparison services like Trolley.co.uk that can help.



Trolley.co.uk is a new UK supermarket comparison app, comparing the UK’s largest supermarkets to help you save money with every shop.

It’s free to use across all platforms and is accessible via their website or app.

There’s also a price history chart, daily offers and price alerts so you’ll always be able to see if you’re getting the best prices.

Best of all, once you’ve compared prices, you can put it all together in a shareable shopping list that automatically sorts your list to show which stores are the cheapest for you. Shoppers are already reporting that Trolley.co.uk’s helped them save as much as £20 a week.



Other saving tips


Loyalty cards and delivery passes for shopping online

If ordering online from the same supermarkets or stores is something you regularly do, loyalty cards and delivery passes should be at the top of your agenda.

Depending on the supermarket and the benefits pass/card you choose, a pass will be billed monthly to yearly for essentially unlimited delivery. Like Amazon Prime or an ASOS Premier Delivery pass, over time the free deliveries will pay off the pass and put you in profit.

Most major supermarkets offer a delivery pass, including Asda, Iceland, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury's, and Tesco. Scroll up to see them again!


Meal plan and choose off-peak delivery

Planning meals in advance is notoriously good for saving money. Why? It stops you from buying things you don’t need! By planning your meals in advance, you’ll be able to order ingredients in advance too which means you’ll have the luxury of being able to choose the delivery slots. By choosing off-peak times, which generally are weekdays, and avoiding evenings and weekends, you’ll be able to save a few quid with each delivery.


Use supermarket cashback apps

If you're yet to use a supermarket cashback app, it's time to get started!

Cashback apps can save you money on more than just your weekly grocery shop and depending on the app you use, you’ll be able to save money both in store and online.

Each app will have its own list of offers and features with some including freebie offers. The concept is simple and fast:

  • Purchase from a retailer that’s featured on your cashback app
  • Using the app, scan the product and/or receipt
  • Wait to be refunded part or all of the cost (depending on the available offer)

Here’s a few cashback apps that you’ll be able to use:
