Specialty Food Association

Meijer has announced that stores in Michigan are now accepting SNAP benefits for its Meijer Pickup and Home Delivery shopping services.

The retailer is accepting the payment capability at all Michigan stores, which allows customers with SNAP benefits to pay for Meijer Pickup or Meijer Home Delivery orders using an EBT card. The company will activate the payment capability for customers shopping in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Kentucky in the coming weeks. 

"We're excited to accept SNAP benefits across our Meijer Pickup and Delivery shopping experiences," said Derek Steele, vice president of customer strategy for Meijer, in a statement. "We believe all customers should have access to personalized, convenient, digital shopping services and understand the added benefit this new payment capability provides."

The Meijer Pickup service, which is free on orders of more than $35, does not a require membership, offers the same pricing available in store, and includes access to all weekly sales and discounts. The service allows customers shop from anywhere and have a Meijer team member hand-select items and allow them to pick up within a few hours, according to Meijer.

The retailer's digital shopping services feature more than 100,000 items online, including grocery, general merchandise, toys, electronics, beauty care, and houseware items. Customers can order through Meijer Pickup, keep track of their total basket, and use mPerks rewards and coupons. Customers paying with EBT-SNAP on can purchase non-eligible items with a debit or credit card on the same order.

For a limited time, Meijer is offering new Pickup and Home Delivery customers $15 off their first 3 orders of $75 or more.

"Providing SNAP recipients with access to Meijer Pickup and Delivery will make shopping for affordable, fresh groceries and essentials a little easier for parents and families across the Midwest," Steele said. "We hope the new capability brings convenience and access to all our customers when ordering groceries online."
