This forum is for those who shop and coupon with an EBT card. Here are some facts:

EBT cards are for use on food items only. When food and non-food items are purchased in the same transaction, the EBT card gets scanned and pays for the food items; a second method of payment is required for the non-food items.

EBT cards do not recognize coupons. So, for example, if you have a $20 transaction ($10 food and $10 non-food) and $5 worth of food coupons, the EBT card will still deduct $10 from your transaction ($5 goes towards the remaining food cost, and $5 goes towards the non-food purchases).

If you are using coupons, and you do not want your EBT card to help pay for non-food items, you will need to separate your food and non-food purchases into two separate transactions.

Questions, comments, suggestions, etc. welcome!

Ha guys, I jusy double dipped at walgreens using my food card. I bought 16 bags of doritos for $13.98 and they also gave me 6000 points which is six dollars. I paid them 9,00 dollars worth of RR and 5.00 dollars on my food card. What a rush. I got free doritos because they gave me back in points what I paid them. 

Thanks, got go hit them up. My kids love doritos.

I would like to c your receipt so I can wrap my brain around this ebt/coupon thing.....could really use a gas card......does this scenario work at walmart?

If anyone wants to see a receipt for an example....I have one to show

Do I have to physically add a gc to my ebt purchase or will the diff in coupons vs ebt automatically give me a gc?

I was just noticing at my grocery store that they have all the prepaid cards (phone etc...) I bet you could buy phone services to the extent you had man coupons. 

Example $100 in food items, $15+ in coupons, $15 in phone card 

I bet that the EBT card would cover total


Why isn't it ok to ask the cashier this question?
