Amazon took the wraps off a new inititave to give a discounted monthly rate to those who receive government benefits. The program makes it so anyone with a valid EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card can receive Amazon Prime for 6 dollars a month, Amazon does plan on extending the discount to other government assistance programs that do not use EBT cards.
Now just because the price is discounted (almost by half the full price) dont expect to be receioving a slimmed down version of Amazon prime. You will receive the full suite of benefits that come with Prime Prime perks including free two-day shipping, Prime Video, Prime Music and Twitch Prime.
Customers with a EBT card can sign up immediately and can renew their discounted prime membership up to 4 years.
