so items not eligible will be rejected by cashier automatically how will that work if you check out with eligible and non-eligible products?

looks many stores  included: costco, walmart, bingo!
It deducts the eligible items and leaves you with a balance you need to pay.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

so you think all unprepared products should work at costco, walmart etc...?
cereal, salsa, chips, frozen salmon should all be good?

Regular SNAP can be used across state lines so possibly?

Correct. The simplest way to use it is to shop like you normally would, but every time you check out in your local grocery/costco/walmart etc. you swipe your P-EBT card and anything remaining you pay with your regular tender (CC, cash, etc.).

Re NY P-EBT

For children not on SNAP Seems as your schools need to try matching you up on an online portal with a Medicaid case if they find one.

If they don't have on they mark it as other. Those will need to wait for a card in the mail.

If you don't have SNAP but have Medicaid you can try calling the school to help them match you up so you will get the money on to your Medicaid card

Do I have to use my child/childrenís P-EBT food benefits right away?
No. P-EBT food benefits will remain available and accessible on your EBT card for up to one year from the date they are issued.

Are you entitled to NY P-EBT and did not yet receive your card?
I'm working with UJO to assure that benefits are released to eligible households. Submit your info via the form below.
To gauge how widespread the issue is, kindly share.

Check the deposits in your online account.
In NY and NJ (among other States) https://www.connectebt.com
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.
