How to pay with EBT SNAP in the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app

First, if you haven’t already, download the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app. Open the app to add your membership number and create an account.

Then, when you’re shopping in-store at Sam’s, you can just open the app and start scanning your items as you add them to your cart.

When you’re ready to check out, just proceed to the checkout screen in the app. Here, you’ll see the option to add a payment method. Then, choose “Add an EBT card” and enter your information. The Scan and Go app also accepts Sam’s Cash and all major credit cards.

HIP TIP: Consider taking the time to enter your payment information before heading out to Sam’s Club. This will help to simplify the in-store checkout process for you!

After your payment info has been added to the app, you can slide the checkout button at the bottom of your screen when you’re ready to pay. You will then be prompted to verify your EBT SNAP PIN. Once verified, you can proceed past the checkout to an exit greeter and show them the QR code on your phone. It really doesn’t get any easier than that. 🙌

    This is one of my favorite apps. It’s so quick and user friendly. ❤️ it:)

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Glad you’ve been loving it! Thanks for the feedback!

  2. Kelli

    I still have both sams and costco but am frequenting Sams much more often bc of scan and go. I asked Costco if they would ever get it and it was a hard no.

    • CeeJay

      Our Costco doesn’t even let you use the self checkout by yourself.

  3. Kate

    Anyone know if it works with Rakuten? I’ve been using Rakuten for online grocery pick up orders @ Sam’s. <3

  4. Sue P

    Sam’s is really working hard to eliminate cashiers. At our local Sam’s they have the “block rocker” style speakers set at high volume and facing the only cashier checkouts, and now special discounts for not using a cashier.

    • Lo

      I’m slow at the register and like to make sure my prices ring correctly so I prefer self check out and scan n go. I always see people at the cashier line so I think it’s just preference.

  5. AB

    I also use the Drop app for Sam’s when I use scan and go to earn points from Drop🙌🏻

  6. Em

    Same. I LOVE S&G. It is so easy to use and means I frequently run into Sam’s vs other stores just because I know I will be in and out in a flash instead of having to wait in the long lines. Every time I go in every line is several customers deep.. and I can just walk right past and be on my way.
    My local Costco has added self checkouts and so far they are never lines for them, so that may sway me a bit. But still love S&G.

  7. linfun

    I used scan and go for the first time this past weekend and I was pleasantly surprised to get an additional $10 off for using it! Not to mention the obvious bonus of not standing in line!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Glad you could score the savings! Thanks for sharing your experience!

  8. CeeJay

    I love scan & go. I guess the new discounts are for the ones that complained they were not being paid to check their own groceries. I like self checkout also.

  9. Erica P

    I haven’t gotten any discounts but I use it enough already. My favorite is using it at their gas pumps, fast and super convenient.

    • Melissa

      You can use the app at the gas pumps? 😲

      • Lo

        It charges the gas to the card on file so if you share a membership, make sure it’s set to your bank card.

    • Lu

      Yes, it is awesome to use at the gas pumps! Besides not having to insert both the membership card and the credit card, it’s actually saved me a few times by being able to buy gas when my tank was low and I had forgotten my wallet at home!

  10. K. Cash

    Just be careful using scan and go that the price scanned is correct. I bought $2.98 danish from the bakery and it scanned at a $10.98 layer cake.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the helpful warning!

  11. Lett

    I love s&g. I’ve been using it for over a year. I started using it during the pandemic when the lines were horrendous. I’ve never stood in line again!

  12. Sue

    I know there is a person who look at your cart/receipt at the exit door, how can they catch if someone “forgot” to scan an item and gets it for free? They don’t scan or check every item in your cart as you’re about to exit. Honest and serious question.

    • Sara

      I’ve been using the app for a long time, and I think they do a count of the items then scan a few to confirm.

  13. SusieV

    I enjoy it too, and my Fetch does pick up the digital receipt that is emailed to me. The drawback is the 2nd person on the membership account can’t set up the app on their phone(at least we haven’t figured out because we are in different cities & would need to be different credit card).

    • Lisa

      Yeah, SusieV, I have heard that is an issue. They would need to go into the app, set up their payment, use it, and then you would have to go into your app to (re)set up your payment… it ends up being a pain. And then, I know a few times, I’ve had to reinput my CVV code for my card. Aren’t you supposed to be in the same household though … I thought that. Regardless, I enjoy the scan and go between my spouse and I and just have it charged to one CC.

      The problem I have (and maybe this is club specific) is that when we got our membership, they said they no longer do the cards. Drives me bananas, but whatever. I learn now to never throw away my expired one and have it on hand to flash it…. would rather flash the card than flashing my phone!

    • Lo

      You can change the payment before you swipe at the end. The 2nd person just uses the same login and changes card as needed. My acct has 2 stores cards.

  14. Doreen

    I use to love scan and go but last year when I was scanning it keep going around and around for 10 mins . So I went to the check out and use the credit card. Got My bill and it was double. It took me 2 months to get it off my cards. That was the last time I use scan and go. I would like to try it again put kind of scared to use it again.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh no! That does sound frustrating, Doreen! Glad you were able to get it sorted out, and hoping you have better luck if you decide to try it again soon! 🤞💕
