Useful Tips for Using SNAP Benefits to Shop Online

  • SNAP benefits may only be used to purchase food items.
  • SNAP benefits cannot be used to pay for delivery fees, driver tips or bag fees. Many stores will require you to have a credit or debit card on file in addition to your EBT card in order to cover fees.
  • If you already have an account with one of the stores, be sure to update the form of payment to your Link EBT card.

Need help with your SNAP benefits? In Cook County, contact the Greater Chicago Food Depository benefits team. If you live in Illinois outside of Cook County, please contact the Illinois Department of Human Services at 800-843-6154.
