Can you use your EBT card to buy groceries online? Yes!

If you receive Food Stamp (SNAP) benefits, you can now buy groceries online using your EBT card through certain retailers. At this time, you can use your EBT card to buy food online at Walmart and Amazon. More grocery retailers may be added later.

You can buy the same approved food items you would usually buy in a store. Retailers will display a SNAP-EBT logo for food items you can buy online. You may be wondering, can I have my groceries delivered? Yes, but you can not use your SNAP benefits to pay for delivery fees. Only customers who receive cash benefits (such as Temporary Assistance) can use their EBT card to pay the delivery fees of participating retailers. You will need to check the website where you are ordering your groceries to learn about their delivery fees. You may also be wondering, can I order my items online and pick them up at the store? Yes, but it depends on the retailer you order from. Please check the retailer’s website to find out. 

For example:

  • If you order from Walmart, you can pick up your groceries at the store
  • If you order from Amazon, groceries must be shipped to your home
