Life can get busy when you have a lot to juggle. If grocery shopping is another one of those things that adds stress, you should know that you can use your SNAP dollars online now at several food retailers across Massachusetts. This means they will now accept EBT cards as online payments for groceries. This page on our website will help you learn more. Make sure you double-check which stores are participating in this great program before you start shopping. Some might have their own online marketplace, while many others you can access through Instacart.
You can purchase anything online that you would normally be able to purchase in person with your EBT card. However, you cannot use your EBT card to pay the delivery fee or any other service fees. You will need to add another payment method to pay those fees and any non-SNAP-eligible items, such as toiletries and household items. Another important note is that you cannot use cash benefits from TAFDC or EAEDC if they are on your EBT card when shopping for food online.
