BJ's Accepts Digital SNAP EBT

Specialty Food Association

BJ's will now accept SNAP EBT payments of any form, both online and in-store, at all of its locations. The service can be used for pickup, shipping, and same-day delivery.

“Over the course of the last few months, we've been actively working to expand our online SNAP EBT payment options for our members across all the states we currently do business in,” Monica Schwartz, EVP and chief digital officer, BJ's Wholesale Club, said in a statement. “We're excited to announce that SNAP EBT payments are accepted online chainwide, allowing us to offer even more flexibility and convenience to all of our members.”

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program's Electronic Benefit Transfer is a system that assists in the purchase of food for those in need. When checking out, warehouse club customers have the option to split their bill, using both their EBT card and personal card or cash in the same transaction.
