On June the 6th, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced it would be offering discounts to consumers receiving government assistance. Customers that have a valid EBT, Electronic Benefits Transfer, card can now receive a major discount on their Amazon Prime monthly membership. The membership will include video, music, e-books, photos, and the fast shipping that current Prime members already enjoy. Users can sign up by visiting amazon.com/qualify. After the user has qualified, they’ll be able to access Prime benefits for a low price of $5.99 per month for one year.
In order to qualify, users will need to confirm their eligibility by submitting a valid EBT number. While the two-day, free shipping is definitely the sticking point, Prime members receive access to a wide variety of other features with their subscription. Prime members have access to Prime Video, Music, Photos, Reading, Kindle First, Twitch Prime, Prime Now, and Audible Channels for Prime. Amazon wants everyone to become a member and now EBT card holders have even more reason to do so.
