By ordering products, including automotive parts ("Products"), or services (collectively or individually "Products/Services") through the Website, whether you pick-up or receive those Products/Services from a local CARQUEST Auto Parts store, you signify your acceptance of these Terms, as they may be amended from time to time, in CARQUEST Auto Parts’ sole discretion. You also agree that independently owned CARQUEST Auto Parts stores may be utilized to fulfill Products/Services ordered through the Website. These Terms set out your rights and obligations with respect to your purchases, including important limitations and exclusions. All changes to these Terms are effective when posted on the Website.
CARQUEST Auto Parts accepts orders for Products/Services through the Website. You may place your order on our Website at any time (subject to any planned or unplanned periodic downtime). All Products/Services ordered from the Website are to be picked-up by you at a local CARQUEST Auto Parts store that you designate during the order process ("Pick-Up"). You must pay for the Products/Services online at the time you place the order. After placing your order, please follow the Pick-Up instructions listed on the Website in order to receive the Products/Services you purchased and within the time period the Products/Services are available. CARQUEST Auto Parts will send you a proof of purchase of the Product/Services to the email address you provide, which you must bring with you in order to receive the Products/Services from the store. In addition, CARQUEST Auto Parts will provide the proof of purchase information on the Website after the purchase transaction is complete, so that you may print the information at the time you complete the order if desired.

CARQUEST Auto Parts allows you to make your purchases using any of the payment methods described below. Please read carefully our policies with respect to payment methods before you place your order. You may pay by credit, debit, or check card. When you provide CARQUEST Auto Parts with your card information, CARQUEST Auto Parts will obtain a pre-approval from the card company for the amount of the order, which may result in a corresponding block on your available credit while the pre-approval remains in place. CARQUEST Auto Parts will not bill your credit card or process a transaction under your debit or check card until you pick up the Product or arrive to the local store to receive the Service. Once your order has been accepted by the Website, CARQUEST Auto Parts will send you confirmation to the email address you provided indicating that your order is ready for Pick-Up ("Order Confirmation"). To verify the order and to prevent unauthorized transactions, you must present the Order Confirmation (in printed form or from your mobile device) and acceptable identification to the local CARQUEST Auto Parts store representative in order to complete the order. Your receipt will be the Order Confirmation; you will not receive a receipt at the local CARQUEST Auto Parts store unless you purchase additional parts while at the store.
CARQUEST Auto Parts accepts American Express, MasterCard, and Visa with a billing address within the United States. Debit cards and check cards have daily spending limits that may substantially delay the processing of your order. The Website requires the credit, debit, or check card security code of your card for any online purchase to protect against the unauthorized use of your credit card by other persons. The security code is an individual three or four digit number specific to your card that may be printed on the face of your card above the embossed account number (if American Express), or on the back of your card, on the signature panel (if Visa or MasterCard). You represent and warrant that you have the right and are authorized to use the credit, debit or check card you present to purchase Products/Services and that the billing and related information you provide is accurate and truthful. If for any reason you have not authorized charges to be made to your credit, debit or check card, or your credit, debit or check card issuer does not pay CARQUEST Auto Parts for charges, CARQUEST Auto Parts reserves the right to immediately suspend or terminate Pick-Up of the Product/Services.
Prices offered on the Website are quoted in U.S. Dollars. Such prices do not include sales taxes where applicable. You are responsible for any state and local sales or use taxes that may apply to your order, which will be added to your total invoice price during the checkout process. If the amount you pay for an item is incorrect, regardless of whether it is an error in a price posted on this Website or otherwise communicated to you, then we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel your order and refund to you the amount that you paid, regardless of how the error occurred. Online prices and selection may vary from those in CARQUEST Auto Parts stores. Prices and offers are subject to change, and CARQUEST Auto Parts stores are not required to honor online pricing for in-store sales.
