  • Used to be my favorite app, but it's been broken for months

    By Tommeh!
    Updated review: I used to use this app every single day. I live in PA and I use an iPhone 5S running 10.2.1 and it hasn't been working on my device for months. I've communicated a few times with the developers but they still have yet to repair the problem after all this time. I know the PA ebt portal wasn't working for a while but it seems to be working on my one friend's device again- just not mine. I can log into the connectebt website with no problems whatsoever so that tells me this is an issue on the app/developer end. I'm extremely disappointed to see the lack of a fix for this problem. Even when it was working, it never really fully functioned. The coupon section never loaded and the app was always a bit slow. So disappointed to finally be deleting this app after how immensely useful it used to be for me. I'm going to try a different developer's app and hope for better results. I do hope they manage to fix this someday- I know I can't be the only one using this kind of a device and having no luck with this app. Heads up to other people with older devices- this app likely won't work for you and seems to get little support from developers.
  • Great app for a great program

    By SFNester
    I’ve recently faced some major life challenges, some of which I conquered and others that admittedly knocked me down and out. I’ve never thought I’d need public assistance, so when life led me down a path from successful self employed business man to homeless with zero income and the hoards of people who always sought to be near me have all but vanished, it left me in a very dark place. I say all that because it helped me to appreciate the help provided by the state, and efforts to provide this help in an easy as possible way with things like this app. Going from homeless and hungry to just homeless, hey make glass is half full! The assistance provided food, which in turn provides an overall content feeling allowing a more peaceful and hopeful mind. The app just made all this that much better, by allowing you to check balance, history or purchases, as well as tips for saving and job opportunities too. It’s map of participating retailers and vendors is invaluable and I’ve never waited more than a few seconds for the app to update its information (in the few instances that it wasn’t already updated when I logged in). This may be the longest review of the app with saying the least about the actual app, but the state and county officials and workers that made this all possible need some kudos from time to time too. So thank you! Your work is appreciated. -Ryan, native Californian and humanitarian
  • Ease of use and security

    By Sara Musick
    This app is very useful to me. Makes things a lot faster when I need to know my balance. All I have to do is open the app, and my balance is there. No dialing numbers and choosing options or listening to any irrelevant information. Simple and to the point. I have not had to change my password at all. The only reason an app would lock you out , is for security measures, because after multiple tries it thinks you are someone else trying to get into the account . If you have issues logging in , it could be a simple typographical error , such as a wrong letter or number on the keyboard . There is no app or software that will let you use the same password multiple times; that is a security feature . Security features keep our information from being stolen and keep us from being the victim of identity theft or robbery.
  • Awesome EBT Application

    I am so glad they finally made an application for EBT benefits. It’s easy to set up your account... it’s easier than having to call and type in your EBT number just to get your balance. All you have to do is refresh! ... and with the pandemic going on... I wouldn’t even have known I ended up getting additional stamps in April if not for this app... it also has resource links to help EBT customers get jobs, etc etc... You can also link your Food Lion account to this application!!! So it will give you coupons in your area! There are a ton of cool and useful features on this application! I HIGHLY recommend anyone who get EBT benefits to get this app! I know it’s on the Apple Store... (it’s where I downloaded my app) but I’m pretty sure it’s also on Google Play Store as well! Thanks to the developers who made this application, you guys rock!!!

    Wowwww! So I’ve been using FreshEBT since I’ve had foodstamps which is going to be 4 years I think now lol and let me telllll you. It tells me when ima get my cash and foodstamps and updates with welfare. It’s not like the actual HRA app that you can scan documents and etc .. you can only see your information from your card without having to call, you also get a lot of coupons from supper markets near your area . Like I love stop & shop and they have so many coupons for them!!! So I recently filed for unemployment because of covid-19 and let me tellll you lmaoo. You can actually see your weekly claim on FRESHEBT! You just have to go to “add account “ which I never knew and you can add your unemployment or your wic for parents . So wow I actually really loveeee and appreciate this app!! Lol recommended to all my friends ♥️♥️🥴🤞🏻🧘🏼

    By Benkyer7
    I just want to say THANK YOU for creating this app!! This is HANDS DOWN the most helpful app I have! Before when trying to check my balance before shopping sometimes the phone number on the back of the card would work-sometimes not. That would stink when trying to go get groceries and not be able to check my balance. Those days are long gone now thanks to this app!! Thank you so so much!! Also-I would not have known about the extra amount put on my card a couple weeks ago if I didn’t have this app. I did not get the letter telling me about those until TODAY! So they would have been on there all this time and me not even know and I am now in a position that I need now more than I have EVER needed them trying to feed 5 children,so again I thank you!!
  • New EBT System...

    By IrishCharmer11111
    I live in Washington state. When I went to check my EBT balance I got this notification: “Washington switched to a new EBT system, and it sometimes prevents EBT from connecting. If it’s not working for you right now please call 888*******. We are working hard to get Fresh EBT back to normal ASAP.” People living in other states may be getting the same or similar statement. I did some investigating. All it meant is that I had to go into the app and create another account all over again. In other words enter your state, your EBT card number, your birthdate, your first and last name. Then it will ask you to create a USER ID and a PASSWORD. Your password will need to contain a minimum certain number of letters, a capital letter, a lowercase letter, a number and a symbol. Once you do that hopefully should be able to get back into your account without any problems. Be sure to write down your user ID and password in a safe place so you won’t forget it. All this just took a couple of minutes and is sure a lot easier and less frustrating than trying to call that toll-free number and entering my EBT 16 digit card number every time I need to check my balance. 😊
  • EBT Made Simple!

    By ChuChu.831
    I used to have to call the 1(800) number to check my balance & more often than not it took me 2-3 tries to get my correct number input. While it was a functional system, calling just took a little patience. However the app is perfect for the fast pace, immediate gratification culture we live in. Once setting it up, which only takes a few minutes, you can set it so it remembers your login info so that any time you want to check your balance, it’s literally just one tap. And there are a bunch of other functions & info available with it such as suggested weekly budget and past and upcoming deposits and when. A must have app for anyone with CalFresh.
  • Great app, very informative.

    By Suzie.elizabeth23
    I love the Fresh EBT app because you can check your balance almost anytime, any place, without having to call. It is slow sometimes at updating the correct amount, but there's a refresh button in the top right corner that you can push that will update it. With the Fresh EBT app, you can also monitor your recent transactions, so you don't forget when and where your card was used. No more keeping up with long receipts. My cousin Laura introduced me to the app, and I'm glad she did! They also have tips on how to save your money, etc! Very useful app. Thank you Fresh EBT! With 3 kids; anything that makes things a little easier, is a win for me!
