If you are only using your New Mexico food stamps card for food, then you are missing out! Your New Mexico food stamps card can help you get discounted admission to museums, cheap Internet services, student loan forgiveness and so much more!
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 New Mexico food stamps!
- Apply for New Mexico 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 seeds and produce-bearing plants with your New Mexico food stamps card! You can also buy certain gift baskets and birthday cakes. Here are some other surprising things you can buy with food stamps.
- Shop smart. For example, the Double Up Food Bucks program will you a 50% discount on produce just because you used an EBT card for your farmer’s markets purchase and at You-Pick Strawberry Fields!
- You may be eligible for more food stamps than you are getting. Many people are getting less than they should because they don’t get credit for all their deductions.
- You may be able to get cash back from your food stamps card legally by using rewarded shopping apps. Who doesn’t need more grocery money every month? One of our readers earned an additional $437.84 in cash just by shopping with her food stamps card!
- Did you know you can shop here?! You can use your New Mexico food stamps funds in some unexpected places. In addition to most grocery stores and gas stations, you can use your card at Costco, many farmer’s markets and even Schwan’s food delivery trucks!
- 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.
Enjoy double the fresh fruits and vegetables with New Mexico’s Double Up Food Bucks program
When you buy fresh fruits and vegetables with your SNAP or EBT card at participating farmers’ markets, farm stands, mobile markets, and grocery stores, you can a dollar back for every dollar spent to buy more produce.
For example: If you buy $15 worth of fruits and vegetables, the Double Up Food Bucks program will give you another $15 to spend on more locally-grown fruits and vegetables.
