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 EBT in Missouri!
- Apply for Missouri food stamps 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!
- Did you know you can buy this?! You can buy seeds and produce-bearing plants with your Missouri food stamps card! You can also buy certain gift baskets and birthday cakes.
- 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. Most people don’t know how their food stamps funds are calculated. Since we’ve found the exact algorithm they use, we’ve also found a few ways you may be able to increase your monthly award!
- 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.
- Did you know you can shop here?! Costco, farmer’s markets and even you-pick strawberry fields can accept EBT benefits!
- 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.
