Aldi stores sell a large range of fresh food and high-quality seasonal items at low rates.
Families on food stamps who shop at Aldi can receive more food for their money than they might at a typical grocery store.
Does Aldi accept EBT? Here is how it works:
If you are eligible for benefits, an account will be opened in your name, and funds will be deposited into the account online each month.
You’ll get a plastic card, similar to a bank debit card, that you can use to make approved transactions using your benefits.
To use the card, you’ll need to choose a secret PIN the local worker can explain that to you.
If you’re eligible for SNAP benefits, you can use your card at Aldi to do the following:
- Select an item and purchase it at any of their various point-of-sale registers.
If you are eligible for WV Works/Cash or the Child Support Incentive, you can use your card do the following:
- Get cash back with a purchase at the store
- Pay for purchases at the store.
- Withdraw benefits from any QUEST® ATM in West Virginia or across the country.
