Now you also have a much wider list of online options, thanks to an expanded online purchasing pilot program run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service. Today, 48 states and the District of Columbia let you use your EBT card to pay for online orders, according to the USDA. As of March 2022, Alaska and Montana are the only states that have not enrolled in the pilot. The Cheapism website lists more than 70 retailers that accept EBT cards for online orders, including grocery chains, e-retailers like Amazon and online delivery platforms like Instacart.

Here’s a look at some of the grocery stores and other retailers that accept SNAP EBT cards for online orders. Keep in mind that certain individual locations might not participate in the online EBT program even if the chain does, so check with your local store. For chains that operate in multiple states, only states where stores participate are listed.
