STOP & Shop has announced that anyone using SNAP in New York or New Jersey can now pay with an EBT card when doing an online order for both pickup and delivery.
The move means online grocery shoppers can add their EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card to their account on StopandShop.com and buy items using their SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) funds.
While browsing online, SNAP shoppers can sort products to show eligible items, and a "SNAP Eligible" label will appear within the product details.
When checking out their order, customers can select the “Apply SNAP Benefits” option and choose the amount to charge to their EBT card, allowing personalized budgeting throughout the month.
"Offering EBT payment online is an integral part of Stop & Shop’s commitment to serving our communities,” said Gordon Reid, President of Stop & Shop. “We’re proud to make accessibility to healthy food easier and more convenient, especially for those impacted by the pandemic.”
SNAP customers in New York and New Jersey can use their benefits to purchase eligible food and grocery items for online orders; however, they will need to use an alternative credit/debit card or checking account for any items not eligible for SNAP, as well as for fees, taxes, or driver tips.
Pickup orders with Stop & Shop are subject to a $2.95 fee.
Delivery orders placed with the grocer are subject to a delivery fee of $9.95 for orders less than $100 and $6.95 for orders greater than $100.
