Is Amazon Prime Good for EBT and Medicaid Card Holders?

In an earlier post, "Help! I Need to Make a Living" we discussed a few options for caregivers to make a little extra income. One option was affiliate programs like Amazon. You can sign up on their homepage.

Amazon has Prime days coming, starting tomorrow July 16th. This is a couple of days where Prime members get amazing deals and free shipping. I've recently discovered that they offer a huge discount for EBT and Medicaid card holders. This might interest you since it costs $119 per year for the standard membership but it's only $5.99 a month for qualifying customers with an EBT or Medicaid card. That's a huge saving.

Yikes, I sound like an advertisement, which I didn't mean to do. In any case, if you qualify, and you shop on Amazon anyhow, it might be beneficial. We could use all the discounts we can, right? 

Here's a little ditty from their homepage: 
EBT and Medicaid cardholders get a discount on Amazon Prime
As an Amazon Prime member, you receive a free 30-day trial that includes Free Two-Day Shipping on over 100 million items, exclusive shopping deals, and discounts on diapers and baby food. With Prime, you get access to thousands of movies, TV shows, and music to stream online or download for offline, plus unlimited access to over a thousand top Kindle books, and more! After your trial ends, customers who verify with a valid EBT or Medicaid card receive access to all Prime benefits, discounted to just $5.99 per month. Join now at amazon.com/qualify.

I do want to remind you I am an Amazon Affiliate, and obviously would benefit from any Prime signups. But is it a good deal for those of us who have either EBT or Medicaid cards, or parents who do? Well, I think it's worth looking in to. 

ps: I'll soon be starting a blog directory on The Caregiver's Devotional. You are welcome to submit your blogs for inclusion. We're here to help. 


  1. I was unaware of this lower-rate option for Medicaid qualifiers so thanks for the tip. Just might apply.

  2. Yay! So awesome. I was in the same boat, go figure.
