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: Once your order has been canceled, we will reverse the authorization to remove it from your account. The timing of this reversal will happen according to the policies of your bank. 

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?

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 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. You pay the price of the replacement item, even if you choose your own substitution.

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

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

Delivery & Pickup Questions

Q: How do I choose my store for pick up or delivery?
A: Make sure you are signed in to your Hy-Vee account, then select "Change"by the Aisles Online menu. That will give you the ability to choose your shopping preference for pickup or delivery, and the ability to choose your store or delivery address.

Q: Does someone have to be home to accept the delivery?
A: Yes, to accept delivery, someone needs to be home.

Q: What do I need to accept delivery of my order?
A: We may require the person accepting delivery of your order to provide us with proof of identity and age, if relevant.  We may also ask you to show us the card used to purchase the order for verification purposes.

Q: What if no one is home to accept delivery of my order?

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 the Hy-Vee store you'd like to order from and let them know 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 $24.95 minimum?
A: To place an order for less than the online order minimum, please call the Hy-Vee store you'd like to order from and let them know you'd like to place a SNAP/EBT online order.
