Make sure to renew the Amazon Prime discount membership every year to be eligible for the discount. In many cases, I have noticed that Amazon automatically verifies eligibility and continues to give you the discount.

How do I handle issues with my EBT card not working on Amazon?

If you’re experiencing issues with your EBT card not working on Amazon, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem:

  1. Ensure that your items are SNAP-eligible: Amazon only allows the use of EBT cards for SNAP-eligible items. Double-check that the items in your cart are eligible for SNAP benefits
  2. Check your EBT balance: Make sure you have sufficient funds on your EBT card to cover the cost of your order. You can check your balance by calling the number on the back of your card or using an app like Fresh EBT.
  3. Verify your EBT card information: Ensure that your EBT card information is correctly entered and up-to-date on your Amazon account.
  4. Contact Amazon customer service: If you’ve confirmed that your items are SNAP-eligible and your EBT card has sufficient funds, but you’re still experiencing issues, reach out to Amazon customer service for assistance.
  5. Contact EBT customer service: If Amazon customer service is unable to resolve the issue, you may need to contact EBT customer service for further assistance.

If you continue to experience issues, it’s possible that there may be a temporary problem with Amazon or EBT systems, and you may need to try again later.
