Default UK supermarkets

Just wondering if anyone knows of any of the UK supermarkets that will accept overseas cards to order groceries for UK delivery?

I have tried Asda, Tesco and Waitrose but none let you use your NZ card. On Waitrose I got as far as putting my card details in and my overseas address as it asked for 'country' but still wanted a UK postcode I have emailed them asking what the problem is as I have ordered from both Asda and Waitrose for flowers, plants, chocolates and wine as gifts with my NZ cards but with UK delivery addresses.

Just wanted some goodies delivered for my daughter when she lands back there on Sunday. Can't ask mother - as would make it too difficult/traumatic as nothing is simple with her

Expecting the answer to be no chance but I can only hope

I did try the one for the address where it would be delivered but as it didn't match my address it didn't work

I have with presents too - but this was grocery shopping and appears to be different Beans, bacon and the like... They don't have the option for a card that is not UK based

I just had a look at my Tesco account, postal address is still my old UK address and postcode and then I have some alternate addresses in the 'address book' all of which I have sent stuff to since being here.

Umm... not sure what I'm doing wrong. I have created an account but each time I get to the billing address, because it isn't in the UK I can't seem to use my card and as I don't have a UK bank account/address I'm struggling

Can't you just use someone else's address? A family member. Nothing gets sent. I think it's that which is stopping you, if you can use a UK billing address it should take your card.

think the card needs to be linked to the billing address which is where I think the problem lies

I have ordered from ASDA and Sainsburys. I use an NZ credit card and my parent's UK postcode. No problems

This is exactly the problem! And I don't think there is a way around it. I only have my mother in the UK and there is no way I would involve her - it is just too much hassle (that's why I live here)

Anyway will just send daughter money but it's not the same...
