Unfortunately, there aren’t any museums offering Alabama EBT discounts right now. I searched for quite a while and came up with… nothing.

Since Museums For All partners accept EBT cards from all 50 states,
you may want to check out the lists for Georgia, Tennessee, Florida
and other nearby states.

Fortunately, there is hope! I’ve reached out to a few Alabama museums, including The Exploreum of Mobile, and asked them to consider joining Museums for All. If you use Twitter, re-tweet our message (or tweet your own!) to encourage these museums to join these programs.

Did you know your Alabama food stamps card
could be used here?!

Several of our visitors have pointed out that Alabama EBT cards have even more uses, too! Check out these interesting statewide benefits.

  • Discount food markets
  • Starbucks! EBT can be used at Starbucks locations that are located inside a grocery store (such as Target).
  • Farmer’s Markets can also accept EBT cards. Some even have fantastic dollar matching programs for EBT card users!
  • Organic delivery services run by community-supported agriculture programs may also accept EBT.
  • You-pick strawberry locations like Burks Farms in Fairview.
  • Costco also accepts EBT benefits.

Got Alabama EBT?
You might qualify for these, too!

You can also use your Alabama food stamps
benefits to buy these items:

  • Seeds! EBT cards can buy fruit trees and vegetable seeds for gardening.
  • Hot deli food that has been packaged and placed in the refrigerated section for easy reheating..
  • Energy Drinks! If the drink has a nutrition facts label, it’s considered a food item. Drinks with a “supplement facts” label are not eligible because the FDA considers them supplements, not food.
  • Live lobsters and other shellfish that you will eat.
  • Pumpkins that are edible and not just ornamental.
  • Birthday and other specially decorated cakes as long as the non-edible decorations do not exceed 50% of the purchase price of the cake.
  • Gift baskets! Your EBT benefits can even help you purchase gifts for holidays such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas (including pre-filled holiday stockings and tins) as long as the food value exceeds the non-food value. For example, the federal SNAP website indicates that a stuffed holiday bear holding a small box of chocolate would NOT be eligible because the value of the bear exceeds the value of the food. However, a gift basket with snack foods or candy and a small toy would be eligible because the food clearly accounts for more than 50% of the purchase price.
