Well, Amazon Prime is a kind of paid subscription which gives access to the users, which otherwise would cost extra charge or might be unavailable to the everyday customer.

As the world is full of different classes of people, some have a high income, and some have low as well, but the effects of technology are so enormous that you cannot resist yourself from it. So, to help the people with low wages, Amazon has started offering the EBT services from June.  

EBT is Electronic Benefits Transfer; these are the debit cards through which you will be able to get discounts. EBT is generally of two categories, food, and cash benefits. Food benefits are regulated by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) whereas the cash benefits are for the Temporary Assistance of Needy People.

Do not get confused with the membership and EBT card because, if you have an EBT card that does not mean that your membership can be paid by the card rather you have to have to pay $6 for a month, for the association. And, just because you have the EBT card, then you may be able to get a discount on the items.
