Tesco forward booking for grocery deliveries

Does anyone else use Tesco for home grocery deliveries? Speaking to friends they tell me that some other supermarkets allow you to book much further ahead than Tesco does - for instance you cannot book a Christmas delivery slot, currently the furthest ahead you can book is 7th December. Seems Tesco do not reward regular customers with the ability to book forward regular slots, which it would be to their advantage to do. Would be happy to switch supermarkets if any others were taking on new online customers - seems they are not. AIBU? Or is there a secret method of booking further ahead??!!

I've been using home delivery from supermarkets for years and this year is the first time I have been unable to book a Christmas slot with anyone. M&S had also closed their Christmas ordering when I tried to do it.
I don't drive so this is a real problem. I have a slot for this Friday, as usual, but will have to get two weeks shopping then and go out to buy all fresh stuff next week and carry home myself, so it will be several trips.

Elusivebutterfly Iceland will probably have a slot, they sell quite a lot other than frozen.

I use my Tesco vouchers to pay for a delivery saver and it has been so good . No need to worry about crowded supermarkets and I enjoy looking at their website for the bargains . It beats trailing a bored DH along to the store.
