Did You Know You Can Use EBT Cards for Groceries on Amazon?
Did you even know that if you have an EBT Card/SNAP Benefits you can use it on Amazon.com's online grocery stores? I have heard that some in some states people are able to use their EBT cards to order groceries from Walmart.
I verified that you are able to use your food stamp card in the Amazon.com, Amazon Fresh, and Amazon Pantry grocery stores. Certain areas will even allow you to have groceries delivered to your home, thus promoting the popular "stay safe, stay home" mantra of the moment.
I actually know someone close to me who has just been accepted to receive SNAP benefits but she is scared to use it online. I certainly understand her apprehension she is not used to being on food stamps, and also because anything you do online these days can be hacked. I reassured her that if other people are using their EBT card on Amazon, she should be good to go, too.
Using your USDA-approved food stamp card to buy groceries online is only available in a handful of states*; fortunately, Washington state is one of them!
From what I hear, if you want to use your food stamp benefits on Amazon.com you might first want to download the EBT app to keep up with your remaining balance.
