Whip Out That EBT For Amazon Prime!

If you thought that EBT card was just for food and Medicaid was just for medical expenses, think again. I believe you can get some cheaper internet service from major ISPs, you might still be able to get the free phone (though I am not sure), and you can get Amazon Prime at a discounted rate, at least through the end of 2018.

Try Prime Discounted Monthly Offering


Our family has yet to transition to Amazon Prime, but I'd probably jump on it at the rate listed here. If you're looking into it, you probably know a lot of the benefits. In fact, it might save people money in the long run, since you don't end up trying to bundle all kinds of items together for an order just to get free shipping. If you do a lot of your shopping with Amazon to save money, then this could be the right answer for you.

While we're at it, I'll remind those of you considering Prime for EBT to also use Amazon Smile so that your favorite church or non-profit can get a cut of the action. We use Amazon Smile for Grace Lutheran here in Jacksonville. We've raised about $5 in the past year for the church and school. That's not a ton, but it's something.
