Yes, Target now accepts EBT card payments at all of its outlets.
Shoppers can now use their EBT cards to acquire SNAP-eligible items at any Target store. You can only buy eligible products and must use alternative means to pay for surplus items in the order
Target is a leading grocery retailer in the U.S. and accepts SNAP EBT cards as payment at authorized store locations. According to Query Sprout, Target customers can use their EBT card to purchase groceries, such as fruit, vegetables, meat, cereal, whole wheat bread, grains, canned fish, juice and milk.
Most Target stores use labels so that customers can easily identify which items may be purchased with an EBT card. Any additional items that you wish to purchase must be paid with an alternative form of payment.
QuerY sprout noted that most EBT products are covered by Target’s 90-day return policy unless stated otherwise. Your EBT card will be refunded when you provide a receipt or you will receive store credit or an identical item in exchange.
How to Use Your EBT Card at Target
QuerSprout says that when you reach an operated register, you will need to separate your SNAP-eligible products from your other items. The cashier will process your SNAP items first and you can make your payment by swiping your card and entering your PIN.
At self-checkout, you will not need to separate your items and the computer will apply the discount as your swipe each item.
