EBT and Medicaid cardholders get a discount on Amazon Prime

Voiced by Amazon Polly

As an Amazon Prime member, you receive Free Two-Day Delivery on over 100 million items, exclusive shopping deals, and discounts on diapers and baby food. With Prime, you also get access to thousands of movies, TV shows, and music to stream online or download for offline, plus unlimited access to over a thousand top Kindle books, and more! Customers who qualify with a valid EBT or Medicaid card receive access to these Prime benefits, for the discounted price of just $5.99 per month.

 

Valid EBT cards qualify if they are connected to any of the following programs: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF); Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); and/or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). You can not use your EBT card to pay for your Prime membership, however — you’ll need to find a different way to pay the discounted price. You can also quality if you have a valid Medicaid card. California’s version of Medicaid (Medi-Cal) is also accepted, but Medicare recipients aren’t eligible for this offer. Join now at amazon.com/qualify

 

If you are approved, you can receive the discounted price for up to 48 months (2 years) but will still need to (re)qualify every 12 months. This offer does not include Household sharing of Prime benefits, e.g., it can only be used for a single amazon account, not linked accounts (you otherwise are allowed to link multiple Amazon accounts together and just pay for one Prime membership covering all those accounts IF those separate accounts all live in the same household AND you pay full price for that single Amazon Prime membership).

A link to the application for this discount has been added to the financial resources page of our document server. We encourage you to visit the financial resources page to learn about other financial resources and discounts that may benefit you or someone you wish to help.
