1.9 We will not be responsible for any loss or damage caused to the goods after the contract has been concluded.

2. Grocery pricing and payment
Back to top

2.1 The prices shown on this Website at the time of ordering are guide prices. They are the in-store selling prices that day at the store at which your goods will be selected. The prices you will be charged for goods will be the actual prices displayed in that store on the day of delivery, including any promotional offers if applicable. You accept that prices of goods may, therefore, increase or decrease between the day of ordering and the day of delivery.

2.2 The weight of some goods may vary marginally from that ordered and the price may change to reflect actual weight - if it weighs a little less you pay a little less and if it weighs a little more you pay a little more. Prices in ‘My trolley’ are estimates only.

2.3 Where applicable, prices include Value Added Tax. The prices on the website reflect the current rate of VAT and not necessarily the rate you will be charged on the day of your delivery. More information regarding the VAT increase can be found within ‘help’ section of this Website.

2.4 You will not be charged until your order is ready for delivery. Payment will be taken on the day of delivery to cover the cost of all goods ordered and any alternative goods at the in-store selling price prevailing that day, as well as the delivery charge. Methods of payment are described in ‘payment methods’ within the ‘help’ section of this Website.
2.5 If, on the delivery date, we are unable to process your credit card payment, our Customer Care Team will contact you to request new details.  Once these are authorised your delivery will be made.

Please note we will attempt to deliver substitute products should selected products be unavailable unless you request us not to do so.

3.4 We will tell you which items have been substituted and with what. You do not have to accept the alternative goods offered by Sainsbury's. Acceptance or rejection of any alternative goods does not occur until you have the opportunity to inspect them at the time of delivery. Where alternative products are accepted, customers should check product packaging for the most up to date nutritional information and allergen warnings, as these may differ from the products originally ordered.


3.5 Although we take all reasonable care to ensure that recipe and additional nutritional information appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the information was inputted onto the system, the information appearing on this Website at any time may not reflect the exact position at the moment you place an order.  Customers are advised to check product packaging for nutritional information and allergen warnings before consumption, as product information is subject to change after publication of the recipe.

3.6  New food labels will begin to appear on our own brand food and drink products from September 2013.  This is due to a new food labelling law and a new Government front-of-pack nutrition labelling scheme.  For a short time as we transfer to the new labels, you may notice that traffic light colours and other information could differ on our groceries website from the same product on-shelf.  You should always read the label to ensure you are following the most up-to-date information.  This is especially important if you have an allergy or intolerance.  Allergen information can be found highlighted in the ingredients list on the back of pack.
