When to place your Christmas Food Order for Santa

by Super User
The big Christmas food shop is fast approaching, and whilst we can't wait for the big meal, the idea of battling through the supermarket aisles to grab the last brandy butter can put most of us into a cold sweat. Many of us these days decide to order online. However if you want to make sure everything is ordered in time, and not too early, you'll need to book your delivery slot as soon as possible.

To make things easier, thanks to the helpful guys at Santa News Uk , Santa CCTV Cam put together a list of the big supermarkets, and even some of their best supermarket codes for money off your haul. Just remember......don't forget the parsnips.

What are my choices for Online Christmas food delivery?

Most shops will offer Christmas Online Grocery Delivery Slots from the 20th to the 24th December, any earlier and you run the risk of your food going bad. But be aware that many of the supermarket slots may already booked up. Here's the list of supermarkets doing delivery and when you can book.

Amazon Fresh - Christmas delivery slots are open

Asda - Booking open for Christmas delivery, but it's filling up fast

Iceland - You can only book online delivery seven days in advance.

Morrisons - Already booking up, get in there quick

M&S Food to order - Can order now to collect in store

Ocado - Booking available for 20-21st December

Sainsbury's - Reserve a slot three weeks in advance, so booking opening now

Tesco - Delivery Saver customers can already book, if you're not a customer then you can book for the 20th December with more slots being released over the next few days subject to availabity.

Waitrose - Slots filling up on the 22nd and 23rd December, but worth checking your availabity. Here's how you can save money on your Christmas food shop

Amazon Pantry

You'll need Prime, but Amazon Pantry is a quick and easy solution to your Christmas shop. You can use HOLIDAY10 for £10 off a £40 shop, and it'll exclude spirits but works on beer and food items. You can also get 10% off selected products using code XMAS10.

Amazon Prime

Just like Amazon pantry, but with fresh food, easy peasy. Use the code FREEBIE for free samples


If you've done four online grocery shops between 8th November and 31st December, they will send you a £20 Asda voucher ! Glad tidings indeed. Alternatively new customers can use code FRSHP2017 for unlimited free deliveries for a month.


If you work for any emergency services (Fire, Police, NHS, Lifeboat) just show your staff ID/or pass at the till to claim 10% off in store. This only works in store though!


You can grab free deliverly on first time orders over £75 using code VOU1680360, it'll need to be a new account.
