Did you know that you CAN use coupons if you’re on foodstamps? Yes, they can be used together. Many don’t get enough foodstamps to feed their family, so couponing will help you to stretch your budget. It might seem difficult at first, but using coupons with foodstamps is really easy! There is only ONE step you need to remember.
Separate Your Orders!
Separate your order from foodstamp covered items and items that aren’t covered. I’ve noticed that when you use coupons on items that are NOT covered by foodstamps, they tend to come off your foodstamp total meaning you pay more out of pocket!
So do TWO seperate transactions. For your first transaction do all the items covered by foodstamps, hand over the coupons for those items, then pay with your EBT card. For your second transaction do all the items NOT covered, hand over the coupons for those items, then pay with your preferred method of payment.
