Stop & Shop Now Accepting EBT Card Payments for New York and New Jersey SNAP Customers ...

August 26, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK, Aug. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stop & Shop today announced that those in New York and New Jersey using SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits now have the option to pay with an EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card when placing online orders for Stop & Shop Pickup and Delivery.

The new user-friendly experience offers online grocery shoppers the option to add their EBT card to their account on StopandShop.com and shop using their SNAP funds. While browsing online aisles, SNAP customers can sort products to show eligible items, and a “SNAP Eligible” label will appear within the product details. At checkout, customers can select the “Apply SNAP Benefits” option and select the amount to charge to their EBT card, allowing personalized budgeting throughout the month.

“Offering EBT payment online is an integral part of Stop & Shop’s commitment to serving our communities,” said Gordon Reid, President of Stop & Shop. “We’re proud to make accessibility to healthy food easier and more convenient, especially for those impacted by the pandemic.”

New York and New Jersey SNAP customers can use their benefits to purchase eligible food and grocery items for online orders; however, they will need to use an alternative credit/debit card or checking account for any items not eligible for SNAP, as well as for fees, taxes, or driver tips. Stop & Shop Pickup orders are subject to a $2.95 fee. Stop & Shop Delivery orders are subject to a delivery fee of $9.95 for orders less than $100 and $6.95 for orders greater than $100. As they always have, customers with SNAP benefits are also able to use their EBT card for eligible food and grocery purchases at any of Stop & Shop’s 400+ stores. Additionally, customers that prefer to use the Instacart marketplace may now also use their SNAP benefits to purchase grocery items from Stop & Shop at  instacart.com/StopandShop.
