7 FAQs about Michigan EBT

After years of research, I’ve realized there are 7 things that everyone wants or needs to know about their food stamps card. Before we get into the discounts you can get just for having a card, here are some quick-and-easy answers to the most common questions we receive.

  • Apply for Michigan EBT online on the government website. The questionnaire can take a bit of time and you’ll need to make sure you have all of your information together, but it’s much easier than doing it in the office.
  • Know what you can buy. Most people think you can only use your EBT card to buy groceries! In reality, you can buy a lot of surprising things with food stamps, including fruit trees and produce-bearing plants, and even some gift baskets with EBT. We’ve got all the info, straight from the USDA!
  • Shop smart. You may be able to get more food for your money at farmer’s markets and You-Pick Strawberry Fields!
  • You may be eligible for more food stamps than you are getting. Many people are getting less than they should because they don’t get credit for all their deductions.
  • You may be able to get cash back from your food stamps card legally With some smart shopping techniques, you can spend all of your food stamps money and get cash back in your wallet. Here’s how it’s done.
  • You can shop at a lot of places! Costco, Schwans trucks and even Farmer’s Markets can accept EBT. In fact, some retailers (like Farmer’s Markets) offer double-up programs that will give you twice as much food as you pay for!
  • Want to know when your Bridge card refills? Every state sets their own guidelines for when their EBT cards refill. Check this list to see how Michigan calculates their distribution schedule!

Michigan’s Restaurant Meals Program

Michigan’s Restaurant Meals Program is back! They have three restaurants participating in this program so far and are eagerly accepting new applications. If you get Food Assistance Program (FAP) benefits and meet one or more of the following qualifying conditions, you can use your EBT card to get hot food at certain places.
