Basic Questions

Q: How much is delivery or pickup?
A: Delivery and pickup charges vary based on factors such as the size of the order and your fulfillment method.  Your actual delivery or pickup charges will be provided prior to placing your order.

Q: What type of payments are accepted?
A: We accept the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. At this time, we are not able to process debit transactions that require a PIN including SNAP EBT cards.  We also accept Hy-Vee Gift Cards.

Q: Do you accept SNAP EBT cards?
A: At this time, retailers may not accept SNAP EBT card transactions online.

Q: Why does it require me to provide credit card information if I am paying with a Hy-Vee Gift Card?
A: If paying with a Hy-Vee Gift Card, you will be required to provide a valid credit card to cover any amounts beyond the limits of your Hy-Vee Gift Card.  Your Hy-Vee Gift Card will always be charged first.  Should the total of your order increase due to variable weight items, special requests, etc., we will capture up to the estimated total against the gift card and capture the remaining balance from your credit card.

Q: When will my credit card be charged?
A: We pre-authorize or place a hold on your credit card when you checkout online.  The final charge to the card will not happen until your personal shopper has collected your items.  The final charge typically varies from the estimated amount online due to variable weight items, in-store promotions, and substitutions or out-of-stock items.

Q: Do you save my credit card information?
A: It is our top priority to keep credit card information safe. Please read about our commitment to security here: Security Policy.  To make checkout quicker, we can store a "token" of the most recent card you used. To prevent unauthorized access, we will ask you for your password to authorize future use of your credit card and your information is encrypted before it is sent over the Internet. You may also choose to enter your credit card information each time you place an order.

Q: How do I remove a bank authorization charge on a canceled order?
A: The authorization will be removed from your account according to the policies of your bank. To remove an authorization, contact your bank to clarify how long they hold authorizations for online orders.

Q: Why do I need to create an account?
A: By creating an account, you'll be able to shop online and customize your online shopping experience.

Q: How do I update my account information?
A: On the site menu, click 'Preferences' to access your account settings.

Q: How does Hy-Vee use my account information?
A: Please read about our commitment to privacy here:  Privacy Policy

Q: Can I earn Fuel Saver + Perks® discounts on my purchases?
A: Yes, you will earn Fuel Saver+ Perks® discounts if you have a Fuel Saver + Perks® card linked to your account.

Q: I don't have a Fuel Saver + Perks® card.  How can I get one?

Shopping Questions

Q: Are the prices online the same as my store?
A: Please see our Hy-Vee Aisles Online® Terms and Conditions for our pricing policy.

Q: If I add an item to my cart that's an approximate weight (like bananas or ground beef), how will I be charged?
A: In your cart, you’ll see an estimated weight and price for items priced by the pound. When we assemble your order, each item will be weighed and you’ll only pay for the actual weight of the items you purchased.

Q: What happens if the price of an item I ordered decreases after I place my order?
A: In most cases, if the item you ordered is offered at a lower price between the time you place your order and the time our personal shopper shops your order, you'll receive the lower price.

Q: Can I add items to my cart throughout the week without placing my order until the end of the week?
A: One great feature of Aisles Online® is being able to add items to your cart throughout the week and place your order only when you are ready.

Q: What happens if an item changes price after I add it to my cart but before I place my order?
A: The prices of items in your cart will continue to update up until the time you place your order online.

Q: Why can’t I see any discount in my shopping cart for my coupons?
Discounts for digital coupons may not be reflected in your shopping cart on Aisles Online®.  Discounts will be issued when your fulfillment store tenders your order. The discounts will be reflected in your final charge.  Browse Digital Coupons

Q: What is multi-search and how do I use it?

Q: I’m not finding everything I need. Can you help?

Q: Can I add an item to my order after I check out?

Q: Can I delete an item from my order after checkout?
A: You are welcome to contact us at the contact information provided in your confirmation email and request that an item be removed from your order. We will make every effort to remove the item from your order depending on where we are in the fulfillment process.
