Did you know Amazon accepts SNAP EBT benefits?

Yea you read that header right!

I was kind of shocked when I read it the first time myself, but at the same time I'm not surprised because it is a large company. 

What's good about this, and why does it matter?

Well think of it this way, if you're someone whose disabled whether vision impaired or not, on a fixed income, and a struggle to get transportation to and from a store. 


This is a great program for those who qualify. 

It eliminates the need to go to multiple stores, and the covience of having it delivered. 

Plus you get additional benefits besides being able to shop SNAP EBT eligible items.

Some FAQs about the program.

Amazon Fresh is similar to your typical grocery store, delivering perishable, shelf-stable and household products in everyday package sizes, available in select regions. Amazon Fresh is typically available only to Prime members. However, Amazon is making Amazon Fresh selection available to customers who shop with a SNAP EBT card in eligible regions without Prime membership fees.

Don't that sound like a great program? I think so, as someone who has been on a fixed income the last 15yrs. 

I understand how this program can help a lot of people. I've never used it myself, but from what I have read it is a good resource for those who are low income, and those who are disabled. 

I highly recommend utilizing programs like these if you qualify, they can help you out a ton!

Like I said before, just the fact of not going store to store to store, to try an get things the cheapest, and having to struggle with transportation to and from the store or whatever the situation may be. You could go on amazon search for what you need in the SNAP EBT eligible items, place an order and have it delivered in a short time.

If you don't need this benefit, maybe you know someone who does. 

Share this with them so they can learn more and get the help they need.
