When Should You Skip A Week?

Skip a week 5 days before your delivery and before the 11:59 pm PST cut-off. To make it to the cut-off, it is advisable to create a repeated calendar alarm every Tuesday night. [1] 

This will help you decide whether you want to skip the delivery meal. Delivery is between Saturday and Wednesday, and orders are already processed each week.

What Will Happen If You Skip A Week On HelloFresh?

If you skip a week on HelloFresh, the food box will not arrive on the week you selected to skip. This will only apply to one delivery, and the rest of the week’s schedule will stay the same.

“Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.”

– Bethenny Frankel, American Businesswoman

The subscription to food delivery will resume the next week with the same delivery date, so you better make changes in advance if you want to skip again.

Will You Get Charged if You Skip for a Week?

No, you will not get charged if you skip a week of delivery. You will only get charged if you cancel your order after the cut-off of 11:59 pm PT.

It is because HelloFresh orders have already been processed after the cut-off, and cancellation requests will be declined. Therefore, you will still get charged for your upcoming order.

Do You Have to Order HelloFresh Every Week?

No. You don’t have to order HelloFresh every week because it is a weekly subscription. In your chosen plan, the delivery of food boxes will be done weekly.

You can pause, skip, or cancel your subscription to HelloFresh if you want to stop receiving food boxes or if you will be out of town for the week.
