food stamps

One of the parents of a child a keep was asking me how I get such great deals at CVS and was wondering if they take food stamps. Well if they do and she gets food products with ECB, will she still get her ECB?

Yes. It is another form of payment and the cash register should not be able to tell the difference. I think it would be discrimination if she did not.

I don't know where you are located, but here in Michigan the food stamps are loaded onto a 'Bridge Card'. It's basically a debit card. So she should be able to get any food items w/ECB's using it.

I know that in texas it is loaded on to a "lone star card". I am 90% sure CVS takes them. I tried to use it at walgreen's once and it didn't work, and was told that no walgreens took it, although I KNOW I've used it at a different store in the same town. In texas they have a sticker on the door that tells you if they take it or not though.

not sure about CVS

I know that Eckerd used to take them, I haven't tried it since my store has switched over to a Rite Aid. Some Walgreens will take them, but not my local store. Also be prepared to pay tax on your coupons. Even though with food stamps food items are not taxable some stores will make you pay the tax on your coupons. Since my state's (TN) food tax is 9.25% this can add up to a few dollars.

It is a YMMV on which CVS's take food stamps.

I've seen a sign at at least one of my CVS's advertising that they do accept food stamps here. I'm in Charlotte, NC.

one time at the grocery store I was behind a lady buying a decorative lamp (why the grocery store was selling lamps, who knows?) with her food stamps card. I was thinking ummm shouldn't you be buying food for the two lil kids in your cart?

I couldn't believe that was allowed.

I am not 100% sure, but I think some states issue TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). which is like cash I think that also goes on a card like Food stamps and that how some but certain nonfood items.

You are correct. I know in Illinois if you receive cash assistance (TANF) it goes on your LINK card just like foodstamps. It comes off of 2 different balances - one for food and one for other stuff.

Generally, food stamps are only for food. I have never really understood why people can buy 1 pound boxes of fannie may candy or steaks and lobster for dinner every night but they can't buy toilet paper!!!
