There’s a new Amazon Prime discount available and it’s worth sharing. Jeff Bezos and company recently came up with a discount program for EBT cardholders that makes their Prime membership a little more affordable. The best part is that you can still sign-up for a 30-day Prime membership before being charged a cent. Here’s exactly how it works…
Amazon Prime Discount for EBT Holders
Recently Amazon offered a monthly discount of their Prime membership for EBT cardholders. Here are the details:
- Confirm Eligibility: Click here to confirm your eligibility, you’ll have to enter your EBT card number along with an image of your card.
- Prime at a Discount: Once you confirm eligibility, you’ll get Amazon Prime for only $5.99 per month (Compared to $10.99/month or $99 annually). That’s essentially a 46% discount, not too shabby.
- Cancel at Any Time: You can cancel at any time and are not under any contract.
- Cannot Share Your Membership: Unlike a regular Prime membership, you cannot share your Prime membership with family members.
- Must Re-Validate Your EBT Card Every 12 Months: Also, you can only re-validate your card 4 times. After your 4 years of discounted Prime are over you’re stuck paying full price.
Important Note: You cannot use your EBT card to pay for your Prime membership.
Do You Get All the Same Prime Benefits?
Yes. With this EBT Amazon Prime discount you get all the awesome benefits that come with Prime.
In addition to the free 2-day shipping on millions of items, you get everything else that comes with Prime.
This includes Prime Music, unlimited photo storage, Prime Video, Twitch Prime, Prime Kindle Reading, and free Amazon Audible channels.
Do You Still Get a Free 30-Day Trial?
Yes. If you have an EBT card you still get a 30-day free Prime trial.
So you really have nothing to lose. Try it out for 30 days and cancel if it’s not for you.
You’ll never be charged the $5.99 if you cancel within 30 days.
What Exactly is an EBT Card?
EBT stands for Electronic Benefits Transfer and the card works just like a debit or credit card.
The card is issued by the government and allows state and federal programs to easily add funds to your card.
You’ll probably qualify for this Amazon Prime discount if you’re enrolled in any of these programs:
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
- Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Other programs by state.
