During a recent visit to Sam's Club in Ohio I was denied using our food stamp card. The food stamp card has my husband's name on it but I am the one who carries it. My husband has never used it.

WE have membershipS to Sam's Club. I am the Primary card holder. When I came home I emailed Sam's Club. I received an email stating I could use the food stamp card WITHOUT my presents since we both have memberships.

I went 2 weeks later and ran into the same problem. I told the manager about the email. After a few minutes of discussion he let me use the card without my husband but told me the next time my husband would have to be with me. The manager told me my information was wrong. The information came from Sam's Club though.

I can understand the using of someone else's Sam's Club card but considering BOTH of us have Sam's Club memberships and we are husband and wife. It just doesn't make since to me.

Had an Experience with Sams Club?

No one has ever asked me if my name was on my card. Not at any store?

Has ANYONE here thought that because HER NAME isn't on the Food Stamp card, she is NOT ALLOWED to use it?After doing some research (which I would recommend people DO instead of assuming), only the person whose name is PRINTED ON THE CARD is allowed to use it.

This woman is NOT the person on the card, NO MATTER if she's the one that holds onto it.

I have no issues with using food stamps (I do know people who do have them)-I'm merely setting the record straight.Sam's Club is in the right here-they even bent the rules to accommodate her once (something Corporate could REALLY come down on them for) and told her the truth.

When someone is applying for SNAP they're asked to provide the name of anyone else who might be using the card.Aka a care taker or maybe a wife ....

Do more research.They didnt bend any rules for her they just didnt know them and complicated her day :(

Show where you got that. I actually ASKED someone who HAS the thing.

Yes, when you apply you put everyones name on the application but its only one card per family.

If you know someone who uses food stamps then maybe you should asked them to look at their card.1.

If the card doesn't have a photo ID on it then it should state that the card IS valid without one and 2.On the back of the card written in bold, black letters it states that "This card may be used by ANY household member." So if you were indeed just setting the record straight then maybe you should have done a little more homework.

Did you ever stop to think I actually DID?!From the person I spoke to's CARD: "This card is ONLY to be used by the person whose NAME appears on this card".

So don't tell me I didn't do any research.You know what they say about assuming right?

You are incorrect.You can put someone down that is allowed to use your card for you.

I used to get my grandmothers groceries for her.I was NOT on her card, but I was listed as someone who could use the card.
