Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits card for 50% Amazon Prime

130,315 Views
P-EBT relief cards are being issued nationwide. The EBT card issued may be used for Amazon's discount program with Prime for Medicaid/SNAP-benefits recipients. For those unaware, even non-traditional recipients may be eligible for P-EBT because school districts with school-wide free/reduced lunches are being issuing the benefit to all students in the district, not just students below the poverty line. More information about the program can be found at: https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/sta...c-ebt-pebt or you state/local social services agency.

Yes, but select the 48oz size.
Peanuts might be cheaper... hopefully
Beef jerky...no way,
Protein powders can be too...Yes whey.

Rice. Good old fashioned brown rice is the most economical protein source. We in the US are "programmed" to believe we need meat for protein, but that is false.

Quinoa is even better. Hemp seeds are best.
Soy beans are far higher in protein per serving..

Some of us have medical reasons to avoid carbs.

How does food stamps work? If you don't have any income, but have 10k in the bank, do you qualify?
I am assuming that its like student aid, and you would get less or something for having assets.
It's income based, assets would have no impact on eligibility.

Rice by itself is a terrible protein source, mix it with some legumes if you want protein

I don't know about Amazon's exact rules, but all P-EBT cards are issued under the minor child's name. So either they will have to allow the name mismatch or the Prime account will need to be opened under the child name.
No, they are issued to the head of household or the adult in Kansas anyway.

Anyone know if there is a way to get internet essentials with these cards? We don't meet school lunch criteria income wise, but we were issued a card because my daughter goes to a low income school. I haven't used it for food, because thankfully we are not in a place to need it. I wouldn't mind cheaper internet though. Comcast has scammed me plenty over the years, so no guilt about working that system.

I see. I should have qualified that with "all P-EBT cards in L.A County" are issued under the child's name, as I'm not even sure if that applies statewide.

Would you happen to know if there are two or more minor children in the household in KS? Would they issue the amount for two children on one card?

I'm not sure with these cards but there is a program called Lifeline (www.lifelinesupport.org [lifelinesupport.org)]) which is a federal program that lowers the monthly cost of phone and internet. Go to their website- www.lifelinesupport.org [lifelinesupport.org] to see if you qualify.

I got one of these cards but it's under my child's name, does the name have to match between the card and the amazon account?
I am a regular prime member and the EBT was under my kids name. They approved it and prorated the refund to my account after a couple of days.

They will check every 6 months if your EBT is still in outstanding balance. If not, they'll put you back in to regular prime membership.

Also, this program takes you off family sharing so your significant others can't use your prime member to order with all perks

It's monthly. It's always been monthly. $5.99 per month. No option for a yearly plan. I have been trying to get Amazon to make this offer the same as the yearly student discount since the discount program for EBT & Medicaid recipients started. The student discount is yearly and thus is cheaper than is plan. I guess Amazon's thinking is that if you are on SNAP/Medicaid, you can't afford to pay the yearly dues.

Please, please, please prove me wrong!
You're right and they're wrong. The bulk stores like Costco and BJ's thought for decades that EBT customers wouldn't want to pay their annual fee and now EBT customers are some of their biggest markets.

It took people like you to lobby them to try. Keep at it!

Amazon will switch you to the cheaper price and refund you the remaining unused months if you paid annually.
