Did you know your EBT card could do this?!

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2018)

Got EBT? You can get FREE museum admission, cheap Amazon memberships and even discounts at certain retailers with your EBT card! That’s right – your food stamps benefits can do so much more than just buy groceries!

While some of these discounts are available to SNAP users across the United States, many are local to your individual state. For the best freebies, make sure you select your state from the alphabetized state list below. If you have an EBT card, you don’t want to miss any of this!
