Morrisons makes a big change to click and collect and shoppers will be pleased


MORRISONS shoppers can now grab a click and collect slot for less as the grocer has slashed its minimum spend requirement.

Until May 16, you couldn’t place a click and collect order if your basket was under £40.

But now, baskets only have to be worth £25 to qualify for a click and collect slot, which better suits smaller shops.

This means customers won’t have to rack up an extra £15 worth of items just to be able to book a slot.

Even though the minimum spend has dropped, the same rules apply.

If your basket doesn’t come to a total of at least £25, you won’t be able to secure a click and collect order at all.

There are 497 Morrisons branches in the UK, many of which offer click and collect deliveries – but not all do.

To find out whether your nearest store offers this service, visit Morrisons’ website, go to the branch locator, and choose the click and collect tab.

Then simply pop your postcode into the search box and you’ll be given a list of the nearest stores that provide click and collect.

Apart from the minimum spend, its free to order through click and collect with Morrisons.

Some supermarkets have a minimum spend as well as a fee for collection, like Tesco, which charges customers £1.50 to place a click and collect order.

If you want to place a delivery home with Morrisons, you should expect to pay anything between £2 and £6 for a slot.

Though the supermarket offers customers a Morrisons Delivery Pass which you can pay monthly, bi-annually, or annually.

If you shop at Morrisons often enough, its delivery pass can save you money.

Monthly passes start from £5, bi-annual passes from £20, and annual passed from £35.

Morrisons estimates you can save up to £167 a year on delivery with an annual pass.

Morrisons has fluctuated its minimum spend charge for click and collect over the past couple of years.

When the store upped it to £40 in 2020, the decision received backlash from loyal customers.

One person took to Twitter to express their outrage at the supermarket for upping prices.

They said: “You can’t buy a normal minimum £25 click and collect order from Morrisons anymore.

“Minimum order are raised to £40 in flagrant profiteering move. Back to Lidl then!”

Then in 2021, the grocer giant dropped prices down to £25, with one customer commenting: “Morrisons has reduced the minimum order amount for click and collect to £25 which is really useful for a top up shop.

“I often need a few basics in between main orders but I can’t go in the actual shop because of queue.”

As with previous years, there’s a chance Morrisons may up the minimum spend to £40 in the future.

We have asked Morrisons how long shoppers can expect the minimum charge to stay at £25 for, and we will update this article when we hear back from them.

But shoppers wanting to do a few small top ups without having to go to the store should make the most of this price cut while it lasts.
