There are some requirements which you need to follow to be eligible for Amazon EBT food delivery. One of these is adding your SNAP to Amazon. This is an easy process if you follow the instructions on the Amazon page.
What Are the Food Delivery Options on Amazon with SNAP EBT?
Once you have added your identity details to Amazon you’ll get the following:
- access to Amazon Fresh & Free deliveries on orders of $25 or more ($50+ in NYC)
- access to Whole Foods Market & $9.95 delivery fee
- free delivery on Amazon grocery orders of $25 if you are not a prime member
- free delivery on Amazon grocery orders with no minimum spend required if you’re a prime member.
Amazon now offers discounted Prime membership for EBT recipients that works out about half the price of a standard membership. This discounted option costs $7 a month and you have to verify that you are still eligible every 12 months. These members are eligible for the same benefits as those who are paying the standard Prime membership rate. If you are a Prime member paying the full member price for a Prime account but qualify for the discounted rate because you qualify for EBT you can apply online by selecting a verification method.
