Instacart will now accept EBT SNAP to buy groceries from BJ’s Wholesale Club through the Instacart app and website. It is the first club retailer to accept SNAP through Instacart. 

“We’re committed to providing convenience and value to our members, and we’re excited to offer our members the ability to use their SNAP benefits through the full suite of shopping options at BJ’s, including online, in-club and now through Instacart,” said Monica Schwartz, chief digital officer, BJ’s Wholesale Club.

“We know our members can face shopping challenges, such as transportation and accessibility issues, so we are thrilled to provide an additional way for members to shop using SNAP through Instacart.”

BJ’s customers can enter their SNAP card information as a form of payment on their Instacart profile to use SNAP benefits when shopping on Instacart. They can also split the payment at checkout and use both their SNAP card and other payment methods to complete their weekly shopping trip in one order. 

“Our mission is to create a world where everyone has access to the food they love, and we’ve witnessed the transformative impact grocery delivery can have on expanding access to nutritious food,” said Sarah Mastrorocco, VP and general manager of Instacart Health.

“SNAP recipients tell us that grocery delivery helps stretch their food budgets while saving them time. Through our partnership with BJ’s, we’re excited to offer families a more convenient way to get the fresh groceries and essential pantry staples they need.”

Instacart is the only online grocery marketplace to accept SNAP in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. It offers online SNAP acceptance from more than 120 retail banners across more than 10,000 stores, more than any other online grocery marketplace.
