Get a FREE trick or treat with Alexa

We’re joining the Halloween fun by handing out tricks or treats through Alexa from 24th–31st October.

All you need to do is say to your Echo: “Alexa, ask Ocado for a trick or treat”.

Alexa will then decide if you get a trick or a treat.

Your prize will be added to your order if you have one placed, or popped into your trolley, ready to check out.

Have a wickedly good time!
