The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamp (Food Stamp Program), is a federally funded program that provides financial assistance to low-income individuals and families to purchase food. SNAP benefits are provided on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which functions like a debit card and can be used to purchase eligible food items at participating retailers.

Amazon.com is a participating retailer for SNAP EBT, which means that you can use your SNAP EBT card to purchase eligible food items on the Amazon website. This includes items from Amazon Fresh, Amazon’s grocery delivery service that allows you to purchase non-perishable grocery and household items at discounted prices and have them delivered to your doorstep.

To use your SNAP EBT card on Amazon.com, you will need to add it as a payment method to your account. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to the “Your Account” page on Amazon.com and select “Payment options” from the menu.
  2. Scroll down to the “EBT Card” section and click on “Add EBT card.”
  3. Enter your SNAP EBT card information and click “Add your card.”
