Local Arkansas EBT Discounts

There are several local museums and locations that offer discounts to people with food stamps in Arkansas. However, there are a few things you need to know before we dive into the list.

First, you cannot pay for admission with your SNAP benefits. You will need to show the card to get the discount, but then you’ll need to pay any remaining admission fee with cash, debit or credit. The museum will not be able to accept the EBT card as payment.

Getting Started with Arkansas Food Stamps

At Low Income Relief, we write extensively about food stamps. In fact, we’ve been researching it for more than 10 years, so we know the Food Stamps Act in and out and sideways. We have a lot of information that can help you.

You can apply online.

You don’t have to track down your local office, wait in line for hours, and deal with tired and cranky office people any more. You can apply for Arkansas food stamps online quickly and easily.

You only have to fill out one application per household, but you will need information about every household member. Make sure you gather information about your income, expenses, birth dates, Social Security Numbers and other details before you begin your application.

You can buy more than just groceries.

It’s true! The Federal Food Stamps Act actually has some interesting loopholes that let you buy more than just groceries with your SNAP EBT benefits.

You can purchase produce-bearing seeds and plants, such as tomato starts and even peach trees. You can also purchase certain gift baskets. It’s honestly incredible what you can purchase with your EBT benefits.

You may be able to get more food stamps.

A lot of people who apply for food stamps make critical mistakes on their paperwork that cost them dearly. If you misunderstand who should be part of your household, forget to notify the office about increases in your rent and expenses, or don’t pay attention to these loopholes, you could be missing out on a lot of benefits.

It’s important to make sure that you fill out your paperwork accurately. If you get too much, the state can make you repay it. But if you don’t get enough, nobody will tell you. That’s something you have to find out for yourself.

You can get cash back with rewarded shopping apps.

There are many rewarded shopping apps that let you submit your receipts in exchange for cash back on eligible purchases. These apps also work with purchases you make with Arkansas food stamps!

We’ve helped thousands of people get cash back from these programs. That money can be used to buy diapers, toilet paper, and other critical essentials that cannot be purchased with food stamps.

You can get started by downloading Ibotta or Fetch Rewards today!
