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 hold on a cancelled 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.

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: May I use coupons?
A: You may use the digital coupons you have loaded onto your Fuel Saver + Perks® card.  Aisles Online® cannot accept paper coupons.

Q: Why can’t I see any discount in my shopping cart for my coupons?
A: 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 if an item is out of stock? Can I choose whether I'm ok with a substitution on an item-by-item basis?
A: During checkout, you will have the option to select from three different options. "Best match" means Hy-Vee will choose an equivalent item for you, "let me choose" selection means you can choose substitutions per item, and "no substitutions" means we will not select a replacement if your original item was not in stock.

Q: What is multi-search and how do I use it?
A: Multi-search is a tool that allows you to enter or copy/paste a shopping list into a search field and very quickly add items to your shopping cart.  The multi-search workflow will search one item at a time and automatically load the search results for the next item when you are ready.  Read our tutorial on multi-search.

Q: I’m not finding everything I need. Can you help?
A: While we may not be able to fulfill all requests, you may add a special request in the notes for your personal shopper at checkout.  Our helpful employees will do their best to find and shop your request with the rest of your order.

Q: Can I add an item to my order after I check out?
A: You cannot change an order after it is sent. However, if you send a second order with the same pickup or delivery time, you will not be charged a second pick up or delivery fee. The fees will be deducted when your order is shopped by your personal shopper.

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.

Q: What if a product is spoiled or less than perfect?
A: Contact us at the contact information provided in your confirmation email. We may issue you a refund, send a new product, or take other corrective action.

Shopping Lists

Q: What happened to Favorites?
A: We recently made changes to Aisles Online Shopping Lists so that they are consistent between the web and mobile app experiences. We no longer treat the Favorite list differently than any other Shopping List. Customers who previously used this feature can find saved items in a Shopping List named "Favorites".

Q: Can I shop the list I created on a Hy-Vee Mobile App?
Yes. To clarify, Hy-Vee currently offers two mobile apps. Lists in the "Aisles Online" mobile app automatically sync with Aisles Online website Lists, both of which are easily shoppable. However, the "Hy-Vee" mobile app lists are not  currently synchronized with Aisles Online. If you wish to shop those lists, this can only be done from an internet browser. Log in to Hy-Vee Deals and follow these instructions to export your shopping list to your Aisles Online cart.

Q: Can I create a list of items to add to my cart in the future?
A: Yes, Aisles Online® supports an unlimited number of lists for each customer. 

Q: How do I create a custom list of items?
There are a couple ways to do this. If you are looking at all of your lists, you can click the ‘Create New List’ button. Alternatively, when you click on 'Add to List' button on a product you will have the option to create a new list or add to an existing list.

Q: How do I add an item to my lists?
A: When you’re logged in, an ‘Add to List’ button will be in the top right corner of every product on the search page and on the product page itself. Click that button and a modal will pop up where you can add the item to a new or existing list. Alternatively, when you are looking at the detailed list view, you can add free-form text to the list if you don’t want to track down the specific item in search. 

Q: How do I add items from a list to my shopping cart?
A: When looking at your lists, wherever you see a ‘Shop List’ button it will take all available items in your list and place them in your shopping cart. This button is also present when looking at a specific list. If you happen to have text items in your shopping list, it will ask you which item you meant to make sure you get the right product.

Q: Can I pay for my Aisles Online order with my SNAP/EBT benefits?
A: Yes, we now accept SNAP/EBT card payment for curbside pickup orders at select locations. To use your SNAP/EBT benefits, choose the SNAP/EBT card option when selecting your payment method during checkout. This will allow you to pay for your order at time of pickup using your SNAP/EBT card. When you go to pick up your order, you must bring both your SNAP/EBT card and a credit or debit card to cover any costs not eligible for SNAP/EBT benefits. At curbside pickup, you’ll receive a physical receipt which reflects your final order. Please note, we cannot currently accept SNAP/EBT payment for home delivery or locker orders.

Q: Why do I need a second form of payment in addition to my SNAP EBT card?
A: While we do accept SNAP/EBT benefits to pay for curbside pickup orders at select locations, some items are not covered under the SNAP/EBT program. The USDA has provided a useful guide on what kinds of items can be expected to be covered. If your order total is more than your available SNAP/EBT benefits balance, you’ll need to cover the difference with a credit or debit card.

Q: Why do I need to enter a credit card online when using the SNAP/EBT pay at curbside option?
A: In order to reserve your order, we need a valid credit or debit card associated with the order. This card will not be charged and will not be retained as a secondary payment method for items not covered under the SNAP/EBT guidelines. Don't have a credit or debit card? Call Customer Care at (800) 772-4098 and let them know your Hy-Vee store and that you'd like to place a SNAP/EBT online order.

Q: Which curbside pickup locations are currently accepting SNAP EBT as payment?
A: Check the current list here.

Q: Can I use WIC for my online order?
A: We do not accept WIC benefits for online orders at this time.

Q: What happens if I don’t have enough SNAP/EBT benefits balance to pay for my entire curbside pickup order?
A: If you find that you don’t have sufficient SNAP/EBT funds to cover your entire SNAP/EBT eligible order, we can split your order payment with a debit or credit credit card or remove items from your order. We recommend checking  calling the phone number on your card to find out your account balance before you arrive at curbside pickup.

Q: Can I place a SNAP/EBT order without the $30 minimum?
A: To place an order for less than the online order minimum, please call Customer Care at (800) 772-4098 and let them know your Hy-Vee store and that you'd like to place a SNAP/EBT online order.
