Amazon will begin to make its Prime membership program affordable to customers on government assistance programs. The program requires that customers have a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card to qualify, will bring the cost of Prime down from $10.99 per month to just $5.99 per month instead. The program requires a valid EBT card – The card that the government transfer funds for various programs to for access.
The card will only discount the cost of using Prime – it is not to make purchases on Amazon.com, nor used to pay for membership.
The discounted membership will include all the perks associated with Prime — free photo storage, free streaming video and music, use of the Kindle lending library, the ability to shop from Amazon’s Essentials and access to Prime Now (where available).
