Amazon Prime EBT Discount

If you have a Georgia EBT Card, you can now sign up for Amazon Prime EBT Discount and get all the great benefits that come with Prime membership, at a fraction of the cost. The regular Amazon Prime membership is $12.99 a month. However, if you have an EBT Card, you can get Prime Membership for $5.99. That’s over 50% off the regular price, which is a great deal considering all the benefits you get with Amazon Prime. Also, given that Amazon is accepting food stamps online, prime membership is going to be a great thing to have because you will be able to order groceries through Amazon Pantry when the program is rolled out nationally.

There are other low-cost internet services available to low-income families that require at least one child in kindergarten or grades 1–12 (or have a child participate in the National School Lunch Program). Here are the providers that offer the programs in the state of Georgia.

Cox Communications
Cox Low-Cost Internet is part of the Connect2Compete program, aimed at helping K–12 students reach their full potential by providing internet access to low-income families. The low-cost Internet service is $9.95 per month and is available to families with at least one child in kindergarten or grades 1–12.

Eligible families must also be participating in one of the following programs:

  • National School Lunch Program
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – Food Stamps
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Public Housing

AT&T
AT&T offers the Access program for eligible low-income families for $10.00 per month. To qualify for Access, customers must have at least one family member who participates in the SNAP (Food Stamps) program.

CenturyLink
CenturyLink offers the Internet Basics plan, offering internet access to eligible families for $9.95 per month. CenturyLink’s service is more widely available than many other providers.

To be eligible for Internet Basics, applicants must meet the requirements for the Lifeline program, by being a participant in one of several federal low-income assistance programs, including SNAP (food stamps).

Frontier Communications
Frontier participates in the Lifeline program but does not have a specific internet plan for low-income customers. However, they offer internet access starting at $20.00 per month, so a Lifeline discount of $9.25 would bring that down to around $10.00 per month – which is in line with what you get with other low-income providers.

Xfinity – Comcast
Xfinity offers an Internet Essentials program that allows qualifying customers to purchase a plan for just $9.95 per month. Internet Essentials is designed to help students, seniors, and low-income families. The program also offers free in-home Wi-Fi and requires no credit check. For a family to qualify, they must have at least one child eligible for the National School Lunch Program and meet other requirements.

Spectrum
Spectrum offers an Internet Assist program for low-income families. Internet Assist is priced at $14.99 per month, but the speeds are double Xfinity’s program. Customers can also add Wi-Fi for an additional $5.00 per month. Eligible families must have a child eligible for the National School Lunch Program.

Museums

The Georgia Museums listed below all offer individual admission fees ranging from FREE to $3.00 to individuals and families who have an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, and a valid form of photo ID. The offer covers up to four individuals per EBT card, which means that if you have a family of 4, you can use your Georgia EBT card to get the special discounted rate or the free admission for all four members. These rates are available during all normal operating hours. We advise that you call the museum first before you go – so that you can find out what their special rate is for EBT Card holders (whether it’s free admission or $3).
