Groceries Delivered to Your Door with Hy-Vee Aisles Online & Hy-Vee Gift Card Giveaway #HyVeeAislesOnline

Disclosure:  This post contains sponsored content.
Hy-Vee's Aisles Online program is about ready to celebrate it's first birthday! Have you had a chance to check it out yet?  My family shops regularly at Hy-Vee and of course I'm always looking at the online ads every week to blog my favorite deals to share with you, so I've heard a lot about their online ordering program but had never tried it out myself.  I was recently given a chance to try out Aisles Online and their home grocery delivery myself so I can share my experience with you.

I love shopping online at all hours of the day and not having to worry about if my hair's still wet or I'm in my pajamas and ready for bed, so being able to order my groceries at 10pm at night suits me just fine.  The first step is visiting Hy-Vee.com then selecting Aisles Online.  To start you'll want to login or register if you're not already.  Chances are if you're already using a Hy-Vee Fuel Saver + Perks card you already have an account.  If not you'll need to create one.  From there you can either choose to shop by the section of the store, searching for specific items or shopping with the weekly ad.  We always grocery shop weekly based on the ads, so that is the route I chose except for when my hubby requested I order some toothpicks then I did a quick search for those.

Products are clearly identified as sale items and you can easily identify what you will be earning with Fuel Saver Rewards as well.  It's easy to update the number of items you want and add them to your cart.  If there are multiple varieties available just click on the link under the product to choose the specific item you want.


After you select your first item to add to your cart you'll be directed to enter in your zip code and decide how you want to get your groceries.  It you want to pick them up at the store you can choose store pick up.  Many stores have designated parking spaces close to the entrance for this option.  Or you can choose home delivery.  Store pick up can be done any time between 8am and 9pm on a following day.  Deliveries usually take place between 9am and 8pm.  
Please note that there are fees associated with either option, but if your grocery order is $100 or more the fee is waived.

I completed my grocery order late on a Wednesday night and decided to have them delivered on Friday afternoon when I knew I would be home.  It worked out that my little guy was not quite awake from his nap yet when our groceries arrived so he was cranky and it would not have been a good time for me to take him to the store.  A napping baby is just one good reason to have groceries delivered to your home.  The option is especially nice for those who may not be very mobile, those without a car or who share cars with their spouse, those who hate driving in strange Iowa weather conditions and all of those who just don't have as much time as they would like to spend at the store picking out their groceries and standing in line.


I received an email confirmation from Hy-Vee after my order was placed and again on Friday morning after my order had been shopped and put together.  I had selected Friday afternoon between 3 and 4 for my delivery window and my delivery was extremely prompt arriving a few minutes before 3:00.


The delivery itself happened so fast it was tough to get any quality photos, but if you're curious how your groceries are stored this crate photo should give you an idea.  The cold items were in a separate container from the shelf stable items.

When finalizing your grocery order online you have the option to allow substitutions which just means they would select an equal or similar item in case the item you want is unavailable.  They promise to never substitute with a lesser value item.  You can also choose to leave a note to your personal grocer with any special requests.  I chose to allow substitutions and I don't believe there were any in my order.  I didn't make any special requests.  One item, a box of cake mix, was more beat up than what I would normally select off the shelf for myself but that's one small negative.  One downside to Aisles Online that I came across is it doesn't offer gift cards as a payment option at the moment.  I'm curious if this will be an option in the future.

I love the convenience of Aisles Online and think it's great that it is an available option for us lucky folks who have Hy-Vee as a local grocery store. Learn more by visiting Hy-Vee Aisles Online.

The Giveaway:  Thanks to Hy-Vee one lucky reader will win a $25 Hy-Vee gift card to use toward your next grocery shopping trip.  Giveaway is open to US residents only and ends April 13th.  Good luck!

  2. I'd like to try out the new Aisles Online program because I have little ones at home and they're a handful to take shopping! I love the idea that I can shop online while they're napping and then just stop by the store to pick-up my items.

  14. I had no idea that Hy-Vee offered this! I love that they have a store pick-up option - the one I go to is near the rescue horse barn that I volunteer at, so when I'm stopping there for groceries I have usually just spent a long day working with horses and totally look/smell like it! Would be great to have groceries brought out to my car rather than going in when I'm icky and exhausted!
