Food stamp beneficiaries might be interested in knowing they can use their benefits to purchase goods on Amazon.
Over 42 million Americans benefit from food stamps.
Typically, those with the benefits will have them loaded onto their EBT card electronically and then use the card at grocery stores.
You may also use SNAP benefits through Amazon.
