Online Shopping

How does Online Grocery Shopping Work?
Online Grocery Shopping, brought to you by Albertsons Market, Market Street, and United Supermarkets, makes it easy for you to place an order 24 hours a day and pick up curbside at the time that is convenient for you or we will bring your grocery order directly to your home or office. Your order will be carefully selected and bagged by your Personal Shopper, guaranteeing the freshest products, longest available shelf lives, and careful handling.

What are your hours?
Delivery and in-store pickup services are available 7 am. to 8 pm, 7 days a week. Holiday hours will vary depending on store hours.

How do I place an order? 
To start an order, log in with your Rewards account then begin adding items to your cart. If delivery or pick up service is available in your area, you will be on your way to your first order!

Do I need a Rewards account to shop online?
To use Online Grocery Shopping, you must be a Rewards member with a valid email address. Not a Rewards member? Signing up is free and easy. Simply sign up for Rewards by clicking Register in the website menu.

If I already have a Rewards account, do I have to create another online shopping account?
No, your Rewards account is the only account you need to be able to place an order.

How many accounts can I have?
We recommend only one account per household to ensure you have access to all your order history and preferences each time you shop. If you already have more than one account in your household, linking them together to one primary phone number is no problem. Give us a call at 1-855-762-7880 or email guestservices@unitedtexas.com and we’ll be happy to help you.

How can I change my email address or other account information?
Once you are logged in, select ‘My Account’ located at the top right of the shopping screen. You will be able to view, add, or change your email address, password, and address information by selecting ‘Edit My Account’.

Why are there fees for using Online Grocery Shopping?
Our team of specialized personal shoppers and deliver drivers work hard to ensure you have the best products available. The fees cover costs of supplies, service, and fuel related to your online order.

Is there a minimum or a maximum limit to how much I can buy?
There is a $30 minimum order for delivery and pick up orders. The $30 minimum excludes tax and delivery fees. To ensure everyone has a great shopping experience we may from time to time limit quantities of popular items, just as we do in store.

Are all in-store products available to purchase online? 
Most of our products are available for online purchases, but some items are unavailable at this time: greeting cards, gift cards, some hot prepared foods, custom cakes, and catering. Additional exclusions may vary by store.

Can I place an order for friends and family who live in another town? 
Yes! If we deliver or have curbside pickup in a store in their area, you may order for friends and family.

Can I reserve a delivery or pick up time slot? 
When you begin your order, you can reserve a delivery or pick up time slot. We will hold your reservation until your order is completed, or up to 90 minutes. If your order was submitted after 90 minutes, you will be able to pick a new delivery or pick up time slot.

Can I save an order in progress and come back to finish it later? 
Yes!  As long you were logged in when you added items to your cart, you can log in at a later time or even from another device and return to that order.  However, if 90 minutes has passed, you will have to reserve a new delivery or pickup time slot.

How far in advance do I need to place my order? 
Same day delivery and pick up service are available. Order early to ensure you get the time slot that you prefer. You may order up to 7 days in advance.   

Can I change or cancel my order if I need to?
Yes. You can change or cancel your order up until the order has started to be selected at the store. Just go to “My Account,” then “Manage Online Orders” to edit your order and proceed to check out again. To cancel an order, go to “My Account,” then “Manage Online Orders” and click the cancel button on your order.  

What if there is an item I want that is not available on your site?
If you would like to add an item you know your store carries but is not available online, such as your local daily newspaper or a book of stamps, you can use the Can’t Find It? Feature. This button should be located on the top right of any search page on the website. Enter the item you are looking for and your Personal Shopper will add the item to your order. You can also leave a Note for Personal Shopper from your Cart. We’d also love to hear from you if there’s a product you’d like to see us add to our online offering, please email us at onlineshopping@unitedtexas.com with your suggestions.  To help us source the right product, please provide a detailed description of the product name.

If an item is out of stock, do you automatically pick out another brand?
We try our best to ensure products are in stock when you place an online order. However, when you place your order, you will have the option to select to “Allow Substitutions” from your Cart. When you allow substitutions, our personal shoppers will select a similar item for you. If you choose not to “Allow Substitutions”, and the product requested is unavailable, you will not receive another product in its place. 

Can I add a note to my order?
Yes. There are two places where you can enter special instructions for your order.

After placing individual items in the shopping cart, you can add specific comments for each product by clicking on the “Add Note” text under each item in the “Review Cart” page. During the checkout process you will be given the opportunity to add any further special instructions or comments for the entire order in the “Note for Personal Shopper” box.  

If I order alcohol or tobacco, is it handled differently?
If you order alcohol, you will be required to show a valid government issued ID when we deliver to your home or business or when you pick up your groceries at our curbside service.  In our Lubbock and Albuquerque locations, per City of Lubbock Ordinance Sec. 40.03.2355 and the New Mexico Alcohol and Gaming Department policies, please be prepared to step inside our store to verify your ID for curbside delivery of alcohol purchases. Individuals taking possession of tobacco products must be at least 18 years of age and individuals taking possession of alcohol must be at least 21 years of age – no exceptions.
