The supermarket chain Wegmans has been accepting SNAP benefits as payment for quite some time, but only for in-store transactions up until recently.
Customers of the huge shop will soon be able to pay with their benefits online, according to the retailer.
SNAP is a government program that provides benefits to low-income people and families who qualify. Benefits are delivered through a reloadable electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card.
Because the program is controlled by the states, make sure you verify with the appropriate agency before applying for and using your card.
Benefits can be used on a wide variety of fresh food items, such as meats and poultry as well as fish, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
You should keep in mind that you cannot use your EBT cards to purchase alcoholic beverages, tobacco goods, vitamins, medicines, nutritional supplements, pet meals, cleaning supplies, paper products, or cosmetics with your EBT cards.
Wegmans operates nearly 100 locations, with 48 in New York, 18 in Pennsylvania, nine in New Jersey, 13 in Virginia, eight in Maryland, six in Massachusetts, and four in North Carolina. Wegmans is headquartered in New York City.

Taking advantage of your perks online
The ability to use your EBT cards online is contingent on a number of factors.
However, not all businesses accept EBT cards for online purchases, despite the fact that they accept the benefits in-store.
Check with your local retailer to see if you’ll be able to shop online and obtain free grocery pickup, then pay with your EBT card when you arrive in the store.
