Q:

Does Sam's Club accept food stamps?

A:

Sam's Club accepts SNAP (food stamp) cards at all of their club locations. However, a person must be a member of Sam's club to purchase food items without an additional service fee.

It is important to note that people who also receive WIC cards cannot purchase items for the WIC program at Sam's club. This is due to the product size requirements. SNAP is also not accepted by Samsclub.com and can only be used in the store.

Food stamps are no longer known as "food stamps" but now go by the name of SNAP, which stands for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and is funded by the federal government. It is not a welfare cash assistance program but rather is an assistance program that helps people with low incomes purchase food from grocery stores, convenience stores and some farmer's markets or co-op food programs.

SNAP assistance is provided each month and is loaded onto a plastic card called an EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer). It works like a debit card and is easier than the old system, which used paper coupons. The SNAP program is also a federal entitlement program, which means that any person who is eligible for food stamps will receive them. For those who need welfare cash, they will need to check out the TAFDC program.
