Sainsbury’s has increased the price for some of its midweek home shopping deliveries

The cost of their annual midweek delivery pass and its anytime delivery pass have now been increased by more than 30%.

The cost of the Sainsbury’s midweek delivery pass, which enables shoppers to have groceries delivered from Tuesday to Thursday has seen a £10 rise from £30 to £40.

Additionally, the price of the supermarket giant’s anytime delivery pass, which allows one grocery delivery per day, has risen from £60 to £80.

Sainsbury’s has also increased the cost of its six-month anytime delivery pass, from £35 to £40.

The supermarket has also ditched three-month delivery passes and have replaced them with monthly passes that cost £7.50 for the anytime delivery pass and £4 for the midweek delivery pass.

However, the move from three-month to one-month passes has allowed a price hike in delivery costs, with the original three-month “anytime option” costing £20, and the “midweek” priced at £10.

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson told Grocery Gazette: “Last year we updated our online groceries services so that we can offer simpler, more flexible ways to shop with us, while still offering great value.”

The news comes as the food CPI has increased by 5.9%, reaching the highest figure since December 2011.

The delivery price hike also follows Sainsbury’s announcement that profits have more than doubled to £730 million, with retail sales (excluding fuel) up 2.9% to £29.9 billion.

One customer, Lilian Hobbs, said on social media: “What a bad time to put up the prices. No wonder everyone is going to Aldi and Lidl these days.”

John Barratt said: “Looks like I’ll be driving to Sainsbury’s store in Colwick then. Probably cheaper than getting it delivered now prices have gone up,”
