But if you need the service or are housebound....well is it really such a big deal. Incidentally based on one shopping experience not several to get reliable results.
"A snapshot survey by the consumer organisation found "best before" dates were, on average, a day earlier for goods ordered over the internet" Says the report.
It does not get me out of my chair in a rage and Tesco are reported as giving their on line shoppers the chance to specify minimum sell by dates.
If I was a CA member I would feel slightly cheated.
