During the coronavirus pandemic, many states and retailers are allowing food stamps shoppers to buy groceries online with EBT! If you have a food stamps card, you need to know about this.
Amazon has expanded the areas where customers can shop online with EBT!
Amazon currently accepts food stamps payments in Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Nebraska, New York, Oregon and Washington. It appears that California may be added to the list later this month.
You can shop online with EBT at Kroger.com. You will be able to pick up your order curbside at over 2,000 Kroger Company stores nationwide! During the pandemic, Kroger is also waiving the minimum purchase requirement and the $4.95 fee for this service.
It appears, based on further research, that you will have to pay on-site for the groceries you ordered online. The associate who loads the products into your car will have a handheld point-of-sale device that you can use to make your payment.
Walmart invites food stamps shoppers to order grocery orders online for pick-up at a local store. Just shop online at walmart.com/grocery or on the mobile app. Select “EBT Card” as payment method. When you arrive to pick up the order, you can swipe the EBT card.
In some states, you can use your EBT card online to pay for the purchases so that you do not have to pay at pickup. These states include Alabama, Arizona, California, Iowa, Nebraska, New York, Oregon and Washington.
