People hoping to bag themselves a Tesco Christmas delivery slot have been faced with an online queue of nearly 300,000 people this morning.
Not only has the wait been extremely long, but shoppers have also had to struggle against a crashing website, with some reporting that they were booted out of the supermarket queue as soon as they got to the front.
Delivery Saver customers were told they could book a slot from 6am on Tuesday, but several people complained the queue was opened before the advertised time.
Posting on Twitter, one customer said: “I logged on at 5.59 (am) to get ready, only to find over 135,000 in the queue already.”
By 6.13am, users were posting screenshots that showed the queue was up to 180,000 people.
Another Twitter user said they spent time waiting in the queue only to be kicked out, writing: “Hey @Tesco just sat for half an hour in your xmas queue and as soon as I reached the front of the queue I got kicked out and now the wait is an hour.”
