Step 3 – Shop for SNAP EBT eligible items

Once your payment methods are set, click on the hamburger menu icon once again.
"Shop for SNAP EBT eligible items"

This will display the main navigation menu again. Next, click on the Stores button in the menu to proceed to the shopping section of the Instacart website.
"Click on the Stores button in the pop up"Instacart will show you retailers that are either the closest you for pickup or have the quickest delivery times. This is based on the address information you typed in during account set up.

If you do not see an icon for Price Rite, click on the View all stores button to see more retailers in your locality.
"Click on the View all stores button"
After that, a list of stores will appear. You have an option to select a Price Rite location if they have a store available in your state and locality. Availability is based on your Instacart home address.

In addition, you will notice that Price Rite (and other stores) has the Accepts EBT tag (see screenshot below). This indicates retailers in your area that accept SNAP EBT online.

Once you pick a Price Rite location you can start building your shopping cart by adding items. To do so, simply click on the Add button next to each item. After that, use the + toggle to increase the count for each item you add.

You can toggle between Delivery or Pickup options at anytime during your online visit, right until Checkout. Please note, if you exceed the Instacart delivery radius, delivery may be unavailable at the store you selected.

When complete, click Go to Checkout after you have finalized the items in your cart.
"confirm shopping cart items"

Next, you will be asked to confirm your payment method to place your order.

Step 5 – Review Payment Information & EBT Card

Enter a credit card or debit card as a secondary payment method, if not already done in Step 2 above. This will be used for non-eligible SNAP items, taxes, delivery tips and fees.

After that, you can add an EBT Card now – if you skipped this in Step 2.

Next, select SNAP EBT Card as the primary payment method and click Confirm payment method.

Step 6 – Place Order & Receive your Groceries

Once completed with payment selection, click the Place order button to complete shopping.
"Place Order & Receive your Groceries"

If you opted for Delivery, an Instacart Personal Shopper will deliver your groceries direct to your door.
