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.

I have worked hard all my life and yes I have sams club plus, however after accident I currently am receiving ebt benefits, that doesn’t mean I’m lazy or ungrateful so everyone who is hateful and think that they are superior, you are wrong to judge. Anyone who qualifies gets approved, it’s not just handed out.

Oh please, stop being lazy. Get a job so you don't have to worry about food stamps.

IF you can afford a Sam's Club membership. you should not be on food stamps.

My Sam's club card has my married name but my EBT card has my maiden name. Will I be able to get into Sam's?

That would be something you'd have to ask Sam's-or do a web search on.

In Ohio, you have free use of the card if you are on the Food Stamp case. Doesn't matter if it's your name on it or not.

Anyone outside if the case can only use the card if given permission by a member of the case and if it is being used for the members on the case and not for anyone who is not on the case. I have EBT, I live in Ohio, and I talked to more than one caseworker making sure this is the case. So.

The Sam's employee is in the wrong as of 2017, 2018, and 2019. I hope they were retrained or let go.

I hope that you find a job so that you can feed yourself. You have money for internet access, but you do not have money to feed yourself. Right or wrong, at least the Sam's club has a job and can support themselves.

Instead of buying the membership, save that money, stop using food stamps, and go shopping somewhere cheaper :)

This is a rude, ignorant, and over all dim witted comment. A Sam's membership for some families is a money saver in and of itself and this commenter, while they clearly don't grasp that, is doing nothing to contribute to this discussion and is instead acting like saving $45 in a one year period is going to stop someone from needing EBT.

Clearly they don't understand how the system works, nor how money works or budgeting. This might not be te commentor's fault, but it's still IQ lower and headache inducing to read this level of wtfery.

Says the person MAKING a rude, ignorant and overall dim-witted comment (and who apparently doesn't understand proper punctuation and grammar). Look in a mirror and stop projecting how you are onto others.

The whole point is that people on EBT, have no right to complain about other who work. They pay taxes. The tax money goes to feed these ungrateful brats.

Wow the nerve of you this woman and her husband do not need you slandering them for being low income a 45 dollar membership can be paid for by many people being poor doesn't exclude you from that the fact that sams club has bulk savings buys should clue you into her shopping there saves her money more than likely with her budget she doesn't have many stamps to spend to start with why don't you go choke on something stiff or take it up the fannny and maybe eat a damn Snickers bar before running your rude mouth I mean the nerve of some of you people on here
