How to Check EBT Balance

Wondering about your EBT Balance? If you don’t keep meticulous records (and let’s face it, who does?), you may not know exactly how much money is remaining on your EBT card. Fortunately, it’s easy to find out!

FreshEBT is the easiest and fastest way to check your EBT balance. It’s a smartphone app that you can download right to your phone! It’s fast, it’s free and it works in all 50 states!

Just create an account with your EBT card and the app will show you your current EBT balance (both food stamps and cash), as well as your next deposit date. The app will even help you find nearby stores that accept EBT!

One of my very favorite features of this app is that it will also track where you’ve spent your food stamps and it’ll show you your EBT transaction history. Knowing where your money is going will be able to help you make the most of those precious dollars.

What can you buy with food stamps?

Of course, if you aren’t comfortable using a website to check your EBT balance, you can always use these traditional methods.

Make the call using the phone number on the back of your EBT card. It can be time-consuming and tedious to navigate the automated system but it’s definitely a reliable way to check your food stamps balance!

Make a purchase and check the balance listed on the bottom of the receipt. In most cases, your remaining EBT balance will appear on the bottom of the receipt.
