In the United States, there are a number of financial-aid schemes for people who struggle day in, day out to put food on the table. One of these is the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, most commonly known as SNAP.

Through the SNAP scheme, the US government offers food stamps to low-income households, by depositing funds every month on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card that can be used at most grocery stores.

Get Walmart discounts and more through SNAP

If you receive SNAP stamps, you might be interested to know that Walmart, the US’s largest retail chain, is offering membership discounts to beneficiaries of the programme.

Normally, membership of Walmart+, the store’s rewards scheme, costs $98 a year. However, if you have a SNAP EBT card, you’ll only have to pay half that: $49 annually, a sum that works out at just under $6.50 a month.

Walmart+ membership includes discounts on selected products, free home delivery and a subscription to the streaming service Paramount+.

It should also be noted that SNAP isn’t the only benefits scheme whose recipients can get half-price Walmart+ membership.

The retailer also offers this discount to beneficiaries of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programme; the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) programme; and Medicaid.
