Buy Food Online
Michigan households who receive food assistance are now able to buy food online from select retailers through amazon.com, walmart.com, earthfare.com, and www.aldi.us using their Bridge Cards. Purchases can be made on eligible food items just as one would use a credit or debit card for an online purchase.
SNAP benefits cannot be used to pay for delivery fees. Curbside pickup is available at Walmart to avoid a delivery fee. Amazon is currently offering free delivery for orders over $35.
Cash Assistance and WIC Benefits
Anyone who has cash assistance benefits loaded onto their Bridge Card will not be able to use the cash benefits for online purchases. Women, Infants and Children (WIC) benefits also cannot be used for online purchases.
