Placing an Order

Do you share any information about me with anyone?

At Nutrisystem, we are as protective of your privacy as you would be. Nutrisystem shares information with third party intermediaries for shipping and billing purposes and with reputable third party associates of Nutrisystem unless you have expressly asked us not to, the law requires it, or to protect the rights of property of Nutrisystem. These companies do not retain personal information or share it with any other parties. These companies may include Cybercash, United Parcel Service, Federal Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and others. Please click here to view our complete Privacy Policy.

How long will it take to receive my order?

Depending on where you live, your order should arrive approximately 4 to 10 business days from when you place your order. You can track your package at any time by using the shipping number sent with your order confirmation. Uniquely Yours orders containing frozen foods will be sent in two separate shipments: one containing shelf-stable foods, and the other containing frozen items, which can remain frozen for approximately 6-8 hours.

How will my order be shipped?

Nutrisystem utilizes ground shipping services by primarily FedEx, as well as UPS depending on location. Canada orders are shipped via Purolator.

How will my Nutrisystem® Uniquely Yours order be shipped?

Nutrisystem utilizes FedEx as our primary delivery partner, but depending on your location and the weight of your package, you may also receive your shipment from UPS, DHL or USPS. Our Canadian carrier is Purolator. All non-frozen food orders addressed to PO Boxes and APO Boxes ship via DHL and USPS Priority.

For your convenience, we will divide your order into two separate shipments:

One shipment will contain your ready-to-go Nutrisystem® foods, as well as the tools to get your weight loss program off and running.

Your other shipment will contain your frozen items, which you can start using right away, or begin to incorporate into your program if the frozen shipment arrives after your ready-to-go shipment.

If you are not available to accept your food upon delivery, your frozen items will be packed with dry ice to keep your foods frozen for approximately 6-8 hours. (If you refuse to accept the frozen food shipment at the time of delivery or once it is delivered, you will be charged a $30 cancellation fee.)

All frozen food orders are available in Continental U.S. only, and cannot be shipped to AK, HI, Puerto Rico, Canada, U.S. territories and possessions, or APO Boxes or military addresses.

How do I view my order history?

You can review all previously placed orders, including order total, contents, shipping date, shipping status and tracking numbers, plus view pending orders, in the Order History link under My Account.

Can I order extra items?

The A La Carte section is good for picking up a few extra items beyond your total program (not for building a meal plan) or for maintaining your weight loss. It's the place to get things like supplements and other individual items. We also offer popular, pre-selected sampler packs available that are a great complement to your program.

A La Carte ready-to-go foods, supplements, and ready-to-go sampler packs added to an Auto-Delivery order will continue to ship with each Auto-Delivery order until you edit and remove the selections. Frozen sampler packs will not continue to ship with your Auto-Delivery order. If any A La Carte items remain part of your Auto-Delivery order, your payment method will be charged to include these selections and will be reflected in the order total

What methods of payment are available?

Nutrisystem accepts PayPal™, PayPal Credit®, and Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit card payments. We also except Visa, MasterCard and American Express gift cards, as well as our exclusive Nutrisystem Gift Cards and eGift certificates.

Will my credit card information be safe?

We guarantee that every transaction you make at Nutrisystem will be 100% safe. Click here for our Guarantee.

Nutrisystem is not responsible for unavailability of product due to popular demand, whether discontinued or still in production. In the completion of orders, Nutrisystem reserves the right to substitute a similar product. When making substitutions, Nutrisystem takes great care to meet the requirements of your particular Nutrisystem® food program.

Please note that substituted food items may contain different ingredients and allergens than those in items originally ordered. Please be sure to carefully check all individual product packages for the most updated information regarding ingredients and nutritional content for any/all Nutrisystem® food products, including new and improved items, if you have any food allergies or if you are otherwise concerned about any particular ingredients.

Are the containers used for shipping frozen foods recyclable?

Yes! Not only do we deliver our frozen items in expanded polystyrene made with up to 75% recycled content, but our coolers are also 100% recyclable.
