Tesco to roll out an increase to minimum basket value this summer.

Tesco has announced some changes affecting those who shop for their groceries via the website. The supermarket is set to introduce increases to two key elements of their online shop.

Frequent online Tesco customers will know the current minimum basket value is £40, meaning if their shop comes below this, they will face an additional charge. This minimum spend won’t be this low for much longer though.

In addition to this, the charge for baskets coming in at less than £40 is currently £4 on top of the shopping total. However, this price is set to change too.

The changes were confirmed on Wednesday (March 29) but will not roll out on Tesco’s online store for a few more weeks.

We break down Tesco’s planned increase to both its minimum basket value and charge for online shoppers.
