What Amazon Products are Eligible for EBT?

All SNAP EBT food products must comply with health standards and requirements to ensure that families are healthy and get enough nutrition to meet their nutritional needs.

These requirements are required by SNAP. Amazon must comply with these rules or risk being unable to participate in EBT.

Amazon has a wide range of EBT products that you can buy, including the following:

  • Fresh, frozen, canned, and preserved fruits and vegetables
  • You can buy fresh, frozen, canned, or canned beef, pork, chicken, and other meat products.
  • Can you find fresh, frozen, or canned seafood?
  • Dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt as well as butter
  • Nuts, crackers, nuts, pretzels and other snacks
  • Pizza and potatoes are two examples of freezer aisle products that can be found in the freezer aisle
  • You can find candy bars, cookies and cakes, as well as pie and other baked goods.
  • Baking ingredients: Flour, sugar and oil

What can you buy on Amazon with SNAP EBT?

The program does not accept non-grocery products like household decor or clothing. These items will not be eligible for Amazon’s SNAP EBT payments.

The program does not apply to baby formula and pet food. Amazon will not allow you to purchase alcohol products such as liquor, beer, or spirits.

This applies to many household products, including makeup, vitamins, toilet papers, paper towels, and personal care products.

You cannot purchase any items that you can’t buy at a grocery shop with SNAP EBT on Amazon.

Amazon Prime Can You Be Paid With EBT

EBT cannot be used to pay for Amazon Prime memberships. You are however eligible to receive a discounted Prime membership if you’re enrolled in the SNAP EBT Program.

Prime memberships are also available for other government programs, such as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families(TANF).

Is it possible to buy both EBT and non-EBT items in the same transaction?

EBT cards can be used to purchase eligible items at local supermarkets. You can pay with cash or credit for non-eligible items.

Amazon follows the same process. Amazon Cash or a separate card can be used to pay for non-eligible products.

Amazon Cash lets you use paper money. To add cash to your Amazon account, simply visit a participating location.

You can choose to pay by EBT or cash.

Amazon Coupons for EBT Purchases:

Amazon doesn’t accept coupons in paper form. Amazon does not accept paper coupons. However, they have their own coupons that you can use towards their products. This includes many eligible EBBT items.

If you use SNAP, all coupons are eligible for you to use on your order.

You can either check Amazon’s main page for daily coupons or view the discount codes directly on grocery items after you add them to your cart.

Are You able to use SNAP EBT cash or other payment methods on Amazon?

Participants can use EBT cash and EBT funds, credit, debit and gift cards, to make Amazon purchases through the SNAP program.

EBT cash is not eligible for grocery purchases, but it can be used to purchase other eligible items.

You can’t complete your transaction if you have EBT and non-eligible items.
