If you’re receiving Idaho food stamps, you may also qualify for free internet, discounted veterinary care and more! Most people don’t realize just how many perks you can receive with a Idaho EBT card… so we rounded them all up into this list!
7 Things You Need to Know
I’ve been updating this list for years now, and I’ve learned quite a bit along the way. There are some things that many people don’t know about Idaho food stamps!
- Apply for Idaho EBT online. I’ve had many people tell me that the only reason they don’t have food stamps is because they’re too embarrassed to go into the office. You can apply online and skip the lines!
- You can buy fruit trees. It’s true! You can buy much more than just groceries. You can buy some surprising things with food stamps!
- Shop smart. You may be able to get more food for your money at farmer’s markets and You-Pick Strawberry Fields!
- You may be eligible for more food stamps. Let’s be honest: the amount you’re awarded in food stamps is never enough to actually buy the food you need for any given month. Fortunately, we can help! We’ve figured out how food stamps awards are calculated and what you can do to increase the amount you receive each month.
- You can get cash back (it’s legal)! With smart shopping techniques, you can put cash back in your pocket when you shop with EBT. Here’s how.
- You can shop at many places. Some retailers, such as Farmer’s Markets, often offer double-up programs where you can get twice as much food as you pay for. Bulk retailers like Costco also accept food stamps. Here’s a list of places that accept EBT.
- You can use your EBT card in other states! Not only can you shop in other states, you can also get EBT discounts in other states. All of our state lists use green titles to indicate what venues accept out-of-state EBT cards for discounts.f
